The hearing continued after a brief pause with Rupert Murdoch not wearing a suit and only a handful of spectators allowed in the room. The committee chairman thanked James and Rupert Murdoch agrees to answer the Committee’s questions last.
“Mr. Murdoch, his wife has a very good left hook,” said Tom Watson, MP, near the end of the hearing.
After the committee rejected Murdoch, News of the former editor of the world and international news executive director Rebecca Brooks sat down to answer questions.
The committee said Brooks, who was arrested last week, they would be careful with their questions because she is participating in a criminal investigation. She told the committee that he acted “swiftly and decisively” in dealing with the phone hacking scandal in the News of the World, once he had seen new information on the actress Sienna Miller in December 2010.
Previously, Rupert Murdoch said the British parliamentary committee is not responsible for the scandal that has engulfed his media empire.
“Mr Murdoch accepted that they are responsible for this fiasco?” Asked Jim Sheridan, a Member of Parliament.

Hinton and Murdoch have worked together for 52 years, even when Hinton was CEO of News International, a British newspaper editor of Murdoch
The House of Commons culture, media and sport committee opened hearings on the phone hacking scandal that has roiled the media, police and the public in Britain. Outside the courtroom, the international media and a huge crush of spectators filled the building. Behind Murdoch had a limited number of spectators, including Murdoch’s wife, Wendi Deng.

When asked if news of the end of the World was a commercial decision, Rupert Murdoch, said, “just the opposite.”
Both men played down the suggestion that they were planning to open a new Sunday newspaper to replace the News of the World.
“We have made no decision about it,” said Rupert Murdoch. His son added: “I had to leave all those options open is not the priority of the company now.”
Rupert Murdoch’s first comment, the Parliament was that today is “more humble days of my life.”
