News Corp.’s James Murdoch to Explain Story to Lawmakers

Updated on

James Murdoch’s testimony last month to U.K. lawmakers about phone hacking by News Corp. journalists produced responses that he’d been mistaken, misled or just lied. This week he’s supposed to explain which of those it was, if any.

Murdoch, News Corp.’s deputy chief operating officer, has until tomorrow to submit written replies to Parliament in London to respond to former executives of News of the World, a defunct News Corp. tabloid. They said some of his statements were “mistaken.” A former News Corp. law firm may undermine other Murdoch testimony in its responses.
