British ethics body set to rule on Murdoch scandal

This Monday, April 30, the British press ethics committee, composed of politicians, is expected to vote and agree on the final report, which will be published Tuesday, May 1. Their verdict on the scandal at his defunct News of the World newspaper comes after Rupert Murdoch, 81, and his son James testified for 3 days last week on the phone hacking issue. Reuters reported that both Murdochs had practice sessions with and coached by top lawyers, including ex-White House lawyer Joel Klein, before the hearings, but the older Murdoch still casually threw out insults at politicians and described himself as a victim of a corporate cover-up.
