Former Murdoch executive 'felt sick' over phone hacking
Les Hinton worked with Rupert Murdoch for over 50 years.
He told BBC Hardtalk’s Zeinab Badawi that he knew nothing about phone hacking that was undertaken by journalists in the UK, but did not wish to "diminish the crimes that took place".
Mr Hinton was the executive chairman of News International during a period where the voicemail of the murdered schoolgirl Milly Dowler and many others were illegally accessed.
He resigned from Murdoch’s News Corporation in 2011.
