News Corp. Board: We Support Murdoch

News Corp.’s board of directors is sticking by their big guy. The board announced Wednesday that they are fully standing behind Rupert Murdoch less than two days after a British parliamentary committee had called the chief executive “unfit” to run the corporation’s international business. The board said its “vote of confidence” stemmed from “Murdoch’s vision and leadership” and his “demonstrated resolve.” Murdoch said in a statement yesterday to staff that he regretted not looking deeper into the hacking scandal, adding that executives have “taken our share of responsibility for not rectifying the situation sooner.”
