News Corp. Director Leading Hacking Inquiry Has Ties to Murdochs

Updated on

News Corp.’s independent directors, obligated to assess Rupert Murdoch and other top executives’ handling of the company’s phone-hacking scandal, are relying for guidance on Viet Dinh, a board member with personal ties to the Murdoch family.

Dinh, 43, is point man between the independent board members and a panel that New York-based News Corp. created to cooperate with authorities probing phone hacking by the defunct News of the World tabloid and to evaluate company standards.
