MPs want to question Rupert Murdoch over police comments



MPs want to question Rupert Murdoch about comments he is said to have made about the police probe into allegations of corrupt payments by journalists.

Mr Murdoch was secretly recorded by Channel 4 news and the Exaro news agency appearing to criticise the police and defending his journalists who have been accused of such payments.

The culture committee has voted to ask the News Corp boss to reappear before it.
He first appeared before MPs in 2011.

Interesting that such a high profile person could be taped and not know about it. Makes me wonder who else might have been taped at some point.

So he is to appear before the MPs again, what good did it do last time, imo he was having a good laugh at their expense. It has already been stated that question would be very limited because of the ongoing police investigations.

More public money to be wasted, but it makes (or they think) it makes some MPs look good and are looking after the public interest

News channel last night speculated that one of the journalists he was so keen to stand by, even if convicted, could have been the person who helped get this information out in public. Oh dear.
 What's that saying, lie down with dogs, get up with fleas?

At least he's not keeping the same company as at the last 'enquiry'.
He's divorcing his 'anti-pie-attack' device.
Will he be so cock-sure without his 'wendi-defence' to impress.
Will the next investigation be a little more harsh than the mild mannered Lord Leveson and team.spin

Exclusive: Gotcha! Shocker Sun Tape Reveals the Real Rupe

Today  I have  read a transcript and heard a rather sensational tape of Rupert Murdoch facing the music  for 45 minutes from his embattled Sun staffers and executives as his organisation hands over loads of information to the Met Police in the current hacking and bribery investigations.

Full amazing story is on Exaro at: http://www.exaronews.com/articles/5025/rupert-murdoch-secretly-admits-i-knew-about-bribing-officials
Exaro provided extracts of the audio to Channel Four News for a special report tonight and a  full transcript – suitably redacted to protect people for legal reasons – is on the Exaro website: http://www.exaronews.com/articles/5026/transcript-rupert-murdoch-recorded-at-meeting-with-sun-staff. Tomorrow you can hear 13 minutes of  the great man, sometimes angry, sometimes put out as a grown man sob about his plight at a private meeting inside  the mighty News International (now News UK) London  HQ. All will be revealed on the Exaro website.

In a series of extraordinary revelations the media mogul reveals:

He knew the practice of paying public officials had been going on for years at The Sun and the News of the World

He attacks Britain ‘s judges ( Lord Leveson watch out)  for being biased against News International and put his faith in juries to acquit them all.

He describes the Met Police and other police forces as ” totally incompetent ” in their investigations into News International. He cites the way police turned up to arrest Rebekah Brooks as a particularly crass example. Another staffer reveals the police pulled up his floorboards in searching his home.

He says the police inquiry into the Sun is about “next to nothing.” This contradicts what he said to Parliament

Hints that he may give the arrested journos their jobs back – ” even though I am not supposed to say this.”

Names checks Lord Puttnam and people close to Gordon Brown ( Tom Watson Mp?) for wanting to get at the Sun for years.

Claims the Management Standards Committee set up by Murdoch is refusing to hand over stuff now to the police after journos complain about a decade of expenses and authorised payments being turned over to the Met.

Also  the recording reveals that the Sun’s  agony aunt,Deidre Sanders, read out a letter to Murdoch from one of the wives of the newspaper’s executives. The letter is so poignant that the executive bursts into tears , interrupting Murdoch’s  angry reaction

News UK in a statement to Exaro deny some of this. ”The Sun has been and continues to be supportive of its employees. Mr. Murdoch has great empathy for those whose lives have been overturned and continues to believe everyone charged deserves the right to be presumed innocent unless proven otherwise.  It is simply false that Mr. Murdoch knew payments were made to police before News Corporation disclosed that to UK Authorities. The MSC continues to cooperate with those authorities, under the supervision of the court.”

However what is really revealing is how different Murdoch  is at this meeting in comparison with his appearance before the Commons Culture,.Media and Sport. The bumbling elderly media boss who had never heard of Neville Thurbeck and never knew anything because it was only one per cent of his Empire is transformed into a man who says spends an hour every day worrying about his staff and has a great grasp of detail about people who have been hacked

Perhaps the super rich have a secret stash of regenerative pills- not available on the NHS – so they improve with age. Or perhaps it is all the adrenalin flowing in front of his staff.

Altogether this is an amazing revelation of what the real Rupe is like in private. Just for the record, Rupe,to obtain this story no phone or computer hacking was used and no payments were made by me.  But I must congratulate you  for the way you have trained your staff and executives to make covert recordings. It does you credit when it is in public interest.

No animals or children were hurt in this investigation.Only the rich and powerful

Wonder if he will be has humble has last time or will we see the hard nosed media boss?
