Democracy Now: Judge Overseeing Phone-Hacking Inquiry Appeals for Aid of News of the World Journalists


The British judge overseeing the inquiry into phone hacking at Rupert Murdoch’s media empire is appealing for the aid of journalists at the Murdoch-owned News of the World. Lord Justice Brian Leveson said he needs the help of former Murdoch staffers to carry out his probe.
Lord Justice Brian Leveson: “It may be tempting for a number of people to close ranks and suggest the problem is or was local to a small group of journalists then operating the News of the World. But I would encourage all to take a wider picture of the public good and help me grapple with the length, width and depth of the problem as it exists.”
