Murdoch Mafia update:

James Murdoch went before Parliament today. Here is a primer from New York magazine.

The BBC reports.

  • The Sun newspaper may be shut down if a new allegation of hacking is true.
  • Admitted to spying on lawyers representing hacking victims (and one lawyer's 17 year old daughter).
    Mr Murdoch also said revelations that his company had used a private detective to spy on lawyers acting for phone hacking victims in 2010 was "appalling" and "unacceptable" and apologised to committee member Mr Watson, who had also been put under surveillance in the past.
  • Claimed not to know about various goings-on at the paper. (New York magazine)
