Rupert Murdoch: In The Hot Seat – ABC News

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on July 18, 2011

Rupert Murdoch and his son James will appear before British



Parliament on Tuesday to be grilled by a special committee over evidence of phone hacking at the defunct tabloid News of the World.

The widening scandal has rocked the media, police and the public in Britain, where Murdoch owns many of the country’s largest newspapers. It is alleged that his now defunct News of the World hacked the phones of 4,000 people, from stars to crime victims, to get juicy stories — all with the encouragement of top editors at the paper and aided by some in the police force.

Rupert Murdoch made a rare apology in British newspapers over the weekend.

The elder Murdoch is a man “who meets power with power” and is not going to leave News Corp. willingly, biographer Michael Wolff told Bloomberg News. Wolff’s book, “The Man Who Owns the News: Inside the Secret World of Rupert Murdoch,” was published in 2008.
