Murdoch Alleges Cover-Up

Back before the inquiry into media ethics, Rupert Murdoch admitted there was a phone-hacking cover-up, but he blames one or two “strong characters” at News of the World—including former editor Colin Myler. He had unusually sharp words for his son James, saying he was shocked at the size of the Gordon Taylor settlement and that it showed James was “pretty inexperienced.” On Wednesday night, Murdoch admitted to having five more meetings with British Prime Minister David Cameron than previously admitted—a contradiction of earlier claims that "every contact" had been made public.
