I know, she wrote that dreadful book but didn"t even have the sense to stay off work until the review had been read by everyone. Think she
might be another of Murdoch"s Babes?

Phone-hacking: Hayman overreacts to payments questioning
Retired Metropolitan Police Assistant Commissioner Andy Hayman reacts with disgust to having his 'intregrity questioned' by Lorraine Fullbrook.


3:54PM BST 12 Jul 2011
Follow Live coverage of News of the World phone-hacking scandal

The former Assistant Commissioner was in charge of the 2005 investigation into phone hacking but resigned in 2007 over allegations about his expenses - for which he was exonerated - and an alleged relationship with a junior officer, Sgt Heidi Tubby.

Now an author and columnist for The Times, another Murdoch owned paper, Hayman reacted angrily to a question by MP Lorraine Fulllbrook as to whether he had ever received payment from any news organisation saying: “Good God, absolutely not. I can't believe you've suggested that.”

The committee chairman, MP Keith Vaz was forced to step in and remind Mr Hayman that it was the same question that had been asked of other police officers appearing before them and that it was a fair question as information about payments made to police was “in the public domain”.

It's about time somebody hit out, whilst on the air, at individual journalist's past lies and errors, and exposed them for continuously warping and twisting the truth.

We have witnessed Sky news endlessly insulting the public's intelligence with their biased Clarence Mitchell driven coverage of the child neglecting McCanns. It's astonishing how this pair and their spinmaster have gone as quiet as mice of late. The silence is deafening all around. I guess they really do know when to STFU after all!

NEWS CORPORATION WITHDRAWS PROPOSED OFFER FOR BRITISH SKY BROADCASTING GROUP PLC

News Corporation (“News Corp”) announces that it no longer intends to make an offer for the entire issued and to be issued share capital of British Sky Broadcasting Group PLC (“BSkyB”) not already owned by it.

Chase Carey, Deputy Chairman, President and Chief Operating Officer, News Corporation, commented: “We believed that the proposed acquisition of BSkyB by News Corporation would benefit both companies but it has become clear that it is too difficult to progress in this climate. News Corporation remains a committed long-term shareholder in BSkyB. We are proud of the success it has achieved and our contribution to it.”

Iv"e just come in and it is on T.V. News. In a way this was inevitable under the current climate , a friend told me earlier today that her Newsagent had a stack of The Sun unsold and he told her this is happening every day, the public are showing their disgust. Newcorp is going to come under scrutiny
because Senator has asked for a probe into its affairs.

Murdoch's biggest setback?
Robert Peston

In a business career of more than half a century, has 80 year-old Rupert Murdoch ever experienced such setbacks to his business ambitions?

The quintessential media mogul sees himself - rightly some would say - as the founder of British Sky Broadcasting, the UK's biggest broadcaster by revenues.

So to be told by politicians, who till recently were seen by some as his creatures, that he shouldn't press ahead with his attempt to own all of BSkyB, and then to have to do what they urged, well it is a humiliation of a kind that is somewhat unusual for him.

And, to state the obvious, that humiliation comes only a few days after another act that caused him acute pain, the closure of the News of the World, once his favourite newspaper.

Of course it would be wrong to overstate the damage to his News Corporation empire, owner of vast chunks of the US and global media industry.

It still remains immensely profitable. And News Corp still owns 39% of BSkyB, a business that bucked the recent recession to continue increasing its profits - to something like £1bn in the past year.

This will have been an 'incredibly painful' decision for Murdoch
But no one - including Mr Murdoch - can be certain what will emerge from either the police investigation or the judge-led public enquiry into alleged wrongdoing at the News of the World.

With the police as yet having contacted only the tiniest fraction of the thousands of people whose phones may have been hacked by a private detective in the employ of the News of the World, it is probable that there will be week after week of new shocking disclosures about the privacy of individuals being invade improperly.

And overnight there have been signs of contagion to other countries where News Corp has important assets: Senator Jay Rockefeller, the chairman of the Senate's commerce committee, urged US government agencies to probe whether the News of the World instigated attempts to hack the phones 9/11 victims and other American citizens.

So there could be further damage to the reputation of News Corporation, damage which could alienate advertisers and buyers of its newspapers and entertainment.

If that translated into losses of revenue, it would be easier for Mr Murdoch to shrug that off, if his recent investments had gone spectacularly well.

But he has written down the value of Dow Jones, owner of the Wall Street Journal - and he lost a fortune on the sale of MySpace, one of the original social networks.

Mr Murdoch would probably concede that in recent years he has not been infallible.

Tom Bradby on ITV news speculating on whether the Times will survive as "it loses a lot of money". This story is extraordinary.

I think Murdoch is playing a crafty Game. By withdrawing his bid "with a view to submit at a later date", he didn"t have to pay £2 extra for every share
because his offer was £9.75 and the share is just over £7.50. Public opinion is against Murdoch to such an extent that they are boycotting The Sun,
don"t know about the Times. means he may sell the British Newspapers .

I am just watching th Debate and it makes you laugh if it wasn"t so despicable, that all the Politicians banded together , yet it has taken how many Years.???????

There has just been a comment about the Meeting in Parliament next Tuesday where the Murdochs and Brooks are summoned to appear.
Since the Murdochs are not British there is no compulsion for them to attend but it would show signs of guilt on their part if they refused. Murdoch
is no pushover and will be closeted with his Lawyers no doubt and take the 5th Amendment.

According to Tom Watson MP, nationality isn't an issue - if they're on UK soil, they can be summoned, declared in contempt of Parliament and arrested by Sarjent at Arms - although what happens after that is a bit unknown!
