The former head of the International Automobile Federation Max Mosley testified at a British committee hearing on phone hacking and British media culture. He talked about the intrusive nature of the British media and how he sued tabloid paper, News of the World, for claims that he was part of a “Nazi-themed” sex scandal. News of the World is owned by Rupert Murdoch’s News International and is at the center of the phone-hacking scandal. 

Prime Minister David Cameron appointed Lord Justice Leveson on July 13, 2011, to investigate the role of the press and police in the phone-hacking scandal surrounding the defunct British newspaper News of the World. The hearings were divided into four modules, or phases: 1) the relationship between the press and the public, and phone-hacking and other potentially illegal acts 2) relationships between the press and police 3) the relationship between press and politicians 4) recommendations for improved policy and regulation. close
