Murdoch 'not fit to run' international company

MPs who investigated phone hacking at the News of the World have issued a damning report which concludes that Rupert Murdoch is not a fit person to run a major international company.

Members of the Commons Culture and Media committee also accuse three former News International executives of misleading them. Journalists accessed the private voicemail of celebrities, politicians and crime victims to get stories.

Speaking at a news conference, a Labour member of the Committee, Tom Watson said that in the views of the majority of committee members, Rupert Murdoch is not fit to run an international company like Bskyb.

News Corporation said the suggestion that Rupert Murdoch was not "fit" to run the business, was "unjustified".
