It thank you after -- today.
Who told did.
But aside there's and there's not much you know everything.
I don't know where is -- unilaterally.
Step but anyway so on this -- -- -- they're not up to -- -- turn all of my suggestion.
Yeah but to so what one of the what what what what what what's your regional -- censor.
What of what it would have been flowers from.
Yeah this is going back many many is -- the it all began when a newspaper printed a story about Prince William having a knee injury that's -- this whole thing began seven or eight years ago -- Buckingham Palace said wait a minute.
How the -- did you know that's and then there were claims that.
That his cell phone have been hacked into this pin numbers that some of figured out you can get in a listen to messages.
And that began an investigation it was all very much off the radar and in those days and then eventually a royal report.
Was Clive Goodman was such jobs as was a private detectives that Goodman used to get this information we believe is a private detective who's doing the -- hacking they were both convicted and went to jail.
-- -- -- that kind of sentiment on the back -- a little bit Saddam though an independent investigations dom but it was always came back as the actions of a rogue reporter.
But as time went on wall celebrities in this country -- you grounds in Seattle Miller our various soccer stars and actors and actresses that we're in a minute.
We know our phones are being hacked into -- to file suit.
And as it went on live -- more more details came to -- until eventually some simple I think at least 34000.
People have been had their -- tagged in -- News Corp.
-- parent company of Fox Business Network -- they launched an investigation hired an outside company.
So this went on over and over and over.
Until we got to the point where yes it was revealed -- perhaps this was common practice -- the news of the world which is a tabloid.
Newspaper that is operated by news international which is a subsidiary of news cool and they don't -- up to what we saw yesterday -- Rupert -- -- James Murdoch and the Rebecca brooks the former editor of the news of the world -- before lawmakers.
Sports is about sort of -- in those child who was murdered and now that what was out.
Well that really I think change this into.
You know how all fall into how disgusting.
Much this was -- Dallas she was a missing British school -- Who was later found murdered.
And -- phone was hacked into and buying reported up for an investigator.
What was so egregious about it was they were actually had deleting messages on -- phone in the hopes that new messages will be left that would give them both -- Unfortunately what that meant was -- family and police -- with these messages being deleted.
That there was perhaps a child so -- -- was still alive or at least they've done.
Gave them hopes they can imagine how absolutely disgusting that wasn't that in the end Rupert Murdoch actually costume was granted a meeting with the family of this -- motive bill.
And of course He was it could not say how apologetic He was -- and you know just -- sleep told them how uphold -- -- -- the words He used He was about that.
out of that -- -- I think through investigations through police investigation I think the family.
As they were saying -- -- many of these messages are being deleted salsa is obviously it's a major clue but they managed attractive back and eventually it all came out.
-- -- -- -- it wasn't some -- of a reporter from -- Amount tabloid -- yes from the news of the world market but it never write a story.
In trumpet and included an information.
No it no they didn't they didn't because it was nothing originally I don't anyway.
It would be irrelevant but no they didn't but the fact that they were doing this was was just disgraceful.
Well it's it's about two -- troubled Ashley Rowe from London about.
The phone hacking scandal in the Murdoch's to have you know an accident parliament.
-- -- is about pay an awful place now.
-- you know that's an interesting question.
Let you know do you pay you know there -- belief here -- and this is still being investigated but police were routinely paid.
-- may have checks they say proving miss for inflammation.
Rebecca brooks a former editor of the news who also will not look we we always under the impression that police would give us information for free that's what they do.
But I think there's growing suspicion that that wasn't the case that there were members of Scotland Yard of Britain's top police falls.
The were on the payroll literally -- went to feed information back to the newspaper.
And then that we have the testimonials today.
And a wash a little bit over but.
I don't think gonna -- the Murdoch shorter.
A Warner and other held -- I want to note beer.
And a lot of they do an -- another element.
Yeah I -- I need to tell.
Looking at Rupert Murdoch He was clearly mortified.
And as He called it the -- most -- day of his life.
To be sat there and having to face the music in front of all of these lawmakers who.
You know much like they do in the United States is their moment sued to have the TV fifteen minutes.
Yeah I think.
I think it was incredibly nutritionally.
Painful for them wonders Murdoch came out very strong -- think.
Rupert Murdoch has started off -- I don't think you're honest with you I think He has a hearing problem they were talking about that here in Britain.
He could and I'm just not only could He not here but I don't think He would understand some of the -- of the committee members.
But what -- -- -- -- Murdoch's claim another to know what was -- -- a -- Yep basically -- that He relied on his trusted.
Manages to be handling the day today -- and that.
You know there was a crisis He will be -- but He said He clearly relied on people He thought He could trust and He basically said He didn't know about most of what was going on.
-- -- -- -- some people say that.
We understand that because He made the point look I've got 53000 employees around the world I'm not gonna tell you how many pencils we have in the London office.
But other people said no when it comes to these issues He should have been more aware you should've had more contact the editors of these papers on a regular basis.
And possible searching questions -- -- hindsight of course but Rupert Murdoch said it him in retrospect yes I should've done.
-- -- McLeod comes on world apply and Jimmy Kimmel center looked like a -- and and proposal to Benny Hill.
But I do not want to -- old -- all along where -- women Moroccan Amanda Kerr.
She was fantastic was and she's she's gotten a lot of press avail of this is a headline in the Daily Mail which is not particularly friendly to recoup Miller -- It says take crouching when they hadn't tiger and dragon I'm she's getting a lot of foul play for how quickly she reacted.
Warren -- Pushing -- Blankenship -- and I want to try to -- No not at all what when it first -- -- one that it was all very you know very tense Murdoch's mrs.
wax loon who pies -- in face.
Yeah means there is a lot of play and yes she's you know it isn't it -- she's a son.
-- -- So this -- David Cameron is stood up up and they're huddled bottom of your -- him better way he's got -- gonna grow him today -- Always gonna be -- you know it sessions of parliament as you know pretty raucous anyway but right now as we speak -- he's giving his opening statement.
And -- it'll make -- -- -- the lawmakers will have asked him.
So about this too cozy relationship between him.
Andrews international you know and Rupert Murdoch coming over all the time but being told to go in the back entrance because we don't want other people see him go in that.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- You can't just say as -- they -- -- cozying up to the to the newspapers and especially new international.
Well we're -- final arbiter of their degree of the crucial question here -- will.
Is how all publicists all affect.
-- at that point.
Well it affects you because you're a member of the you -- pop hero of the News Corp.
it was if you receive the list -- stock price went up yesterday.
As the hearing was going on especially when James Murdoch.
Another was -- someone there seems to be you know in control at least into Gaza.
The questions to the best of his ability so that was interesting other people in Britain speculated that it was clear that.
Rupert Murdoch needed to be replaced and that's why the stock prices going up but it was more case I think that James Canada was coming on strong and I think Rupert Murdoch did very well get better -- the proceedings went along.
