News Corp. executives who watched Murdoch, 80, rehearse for his appearance before Parliament were concerned about how he handled questions, according to three people, who weren’t authorized to speak publicly. Murdoch is scheduled to discuss the company’s role in the phone hacking of murder victims, members of the royal family and others by the News of the World, which was closed last week.
Another one bites the dust.
As if the day wasn’t bad enough for Murdoch, the New York Times has this:
The hacking group Lulz Security claimed responsibility for planting a fake article about the death of Rupert Murdoch, the chairman of the News Corporation, on one of the company’s Web sites Monday.
All traffic was later redirected to the Lulz Twitter page. These guys are good.
