Now it's their turn. British stars and public figures who say they're sick of tabloids hacking their phones and libeling them will get their say in hearings scheduled over the next week. Actor Hugh Grant, author J. K. Rowling and the father of missing girl Madeleine McCann are among those due to testify in a government inquiry on media ethics and the phone-hacking scandal of Rupert Murdoch's News International media company. The hearings will be nationally televised.
