British MPs round on Rupert Murdoch's empire
Issued on: Modified:
British MPs came together on Wednesday in a rare show of unity. They're furious about the latest allegations in the phone hacking scandal that's engulfed Rupert Murdoch's News Corp media empire. After the News of the World's closure last week, former PM Gordon Brown has accused its stablemates, The Sun and The Sunday Times, of using illicit means to obtain his personal information. The row has led Murdoch to abandon his bid to take full control of broadcaster BSkyB.
