The influence of the British phone hacking scandal has also reached Prime Minister David Cameron, who made a statement to the House of Commons this morning about the latest developments.
Yesterday, two British Parliamentary Committees questioned News Corp. Chairman Rupert Murdoch along with a variety of Editors and police officials about their knowledge regarding the phone hacking and police bribery scandal which took place at the News of the World.
Last week, Cameron announced an inquiry into phone hacking and police bribery by the British media. Since then, there have been several resignations, including Police Commissioner Paul Stephenson and News International Chief Executive Rebekah Brooks.
Today, the Prime Minister was asked about his decision to hire former News of the World editor, Andy Coulson, as his Communications Director. Mr. Coulson resigned his government post in January and was arrested July 8th and questioned about his involvement in phone hacking and police bribery.
