Via The Guardian:
Nick Clegg has said there are “big question marks” about Rupert Murdoch’s fitness to run News Corporation in the wake of a damning House of Commons report on the phone-hacking scandal.
The deputy prime minister said the report, published on Tuesday, raised “serious questions of basic corporate governance in the Murdoch empire”, which allowed its journalists to engage in illegal invasions of privacy on an “industrial scale”…
During a visit to Fife before local council elections, Clegg threw his weight behind the culture committee’s central findings: “What’s striking about it is how much full, cross-party consensus there was behind a number of excoriating observations about how the Murdoch empire was run.
“Of course, that means there are very serious question marks about the basic accountability and corporate governance of an organisation which, as we now know, whilst it was denied for a long period of time, journalists were abusing the privacy of ordinary people and flouting the law in huge and sustained way.”
