Another day, another allegation that the Murdoch empire illegally hacked information. This time, the finger-pointing is coming from a BBC documentary, which claims NDS, a News Corp. subsidiary that makes pay-TV smartcards, hired an outside "consultant" to help destroy ITV Digital, a competitor. ITV collapsed after its encryption codes were made public. NDS denies the claim, but the news hasn't helped the Rupert Murdoch’s family, which is still fending off an investigation into phone hacking allegations at the now-defunct News of The World tabloid.
