Embattled News Corp exec James Murdoch was slammed during his Parliament appearance today, during which time he was asked to clarify points he made during his first testimony in July. Members of the Culture, Media and Sport Select Committee were “at times hostile” toward Murdoch, according to the Los Angeles Times, and at one point compared Murdoch to a crime family boss.
Even so, Murdoch held firm to his original story, claiming that he was unaware of the widespread hacking that was purportedly rampant at News Corp publication News of the World.

Yesterday was a good day for James Murdoch — BSkyB had announced they’d keep him on as chairman, which was sort of a crucial win for the embattled media titan. And while Parliament did note that wanted “further details” on some of his disputed claims, Murdoch could address these issues in writing, without going through the ordeal of (yet another) hearing. Or so we thought.
Now it would seem that Parliament is ready to call Murdoch back — we just don’t know when.
