Britain Phone Hacking Scandal

March 27, 2012 by staff 

Britain Phone Hacking Scandal, PBS Frontline’s motto may not be “All the news that’s fit to air,” but you can bet more than a few news insiders and media types will be glued to the set tonight, when Frontline tackles the U.K. phone-hacking scandal in a program labelled, “Murdoch’s Scandal.” Fair and balanced? You decide.

The venerable, Emmy Award-winning newsmag takes a new look at media mogul Rupert Murdoch and the battle for the heart, soul, and future, of Murdoch’s News Corporation.

The program – which was made available in advance to a select number of TV reviewers through the kind of online firewall usually reserved for state secrets and classified documents – opens with the sound of a ringing phone, followed by an answering machine.

This is followed in short order by the Guardian’s Nick Davies telling the camera that the first he heard of the phone-hacking scandal was when somebody called him from the proverbial out-of-the-blue.

Davies broke the story for the Guardian, a rival newspaper to Murdoch’s wildly successful News of the World, and is now at work on a book with the working title, Hack Attack: How the Truth Caught Up with the World’s Most Powerful Man.
