Phone hacking report

Help

A report by MPs into allegations of phone hacking at the News of the World has said Rupert Murdoch "is not a fit person to exercise the stewardship of a major international company".

The report concluded that Mr Murdoch exhibited "wilful blindness" to what was going on in News Corporation.

But the MPs were split six to four with Tory members refusing to endorse the report and branding it "partisan".

The cross-party Commons Media Committee questioned journalists and bosses at the now closed paper, as well as police and lawyers for hacking victims.
