Ex PM Gordon Brown: Newspaper hired ‘known criminals’

They also may have tried to get illegal information on the Queen. Two of their former journalists said police officers had been bribed. Prince Charles may have been targeted too. The Sunday Times and the Sun may be involved too.

Scotland Yard has contacted just 170 of 3,870 suspected hacking victims. MPs find his testimony ‘unconvincing’

News International appears unclear on the concept.

A News International spokesperson said: “We note the allegations made today concerning the reporting of matters relating to Gordon Brown. So that we can investigate these matters further, we ask that all information concerning these allegations is provided to us.”

Ah, no. The police and MPs will be investigating News International. Is New Internaional so arrogant and dimwitted as to pretend anyone would still believe a word they say, especially when investigating themselves on potentially criminal charges?

Rupert Murdoch, James Murdoch, and Rebekah Brooks will testify before parliament on Tuesday. They said they “will cooperate.” Again, we see more of their arrogance and cluelessness. If they refuse to testify they can be compelled to do so. They seem to think they are still in control of events. That is no longer true.

Maybe Fox News should be investigated too. And since bribery is a major issue and News Corp is an American entity, perhaps they should be investigated under RICO as a corrupt organization.
