UK Lawmakers To Ask Murdoch To Come For Questions

Les Miserables Australian Premiere

LONDON (AP) — British lawmakers are asking Rupert Murdoch to reappear before their committee to answer further questions about media wrongdoing at his U.K. newspapers in light of a secret recording that emerged earlier this month.

The tape — obtained by the ExaroNews journalism website and broadcast on Channel 4 News — had Murdoch calling wrongdoing by his British newspapers “next to nothing” and apparently acknowledging that his reporters paid police officers for information.

Lawmaker John Whittingdale said his Culture, Media and Sport Committee voted Tuesday to recall Murdoch for questions.

The media baron previously appeared before the committee with his son to answer questions about phone hacking at his U.K. titles.
