MURDOCH SCANDAL UPDATES: James Will Likely Be Recalled To Parliament, Piers Morgan Gets An Apology

James Murdoch


Just when it seemed things might be looking up the tiniest bit for James Murdoch (he gets to stay on as BSkyB chairman) — bam.Parliament committee chairman John Whittingdale said today that “chances are” Murdoch will be back in front of Parliament to investigate the truthfulness of his answers last week.

Meanwhile, Glenn Mulcaire — the investigator subject of a whole lot of payment scrutiny — said in a statement today that he was “effectively employed” by NOTW.

Murdoch had tried to downplay Mulcaire’s business relationship with the paper.

And last but not least: MP Louise Mensch apologized for accusing Piers Morgan of hacking.

Looks like yesterday’s Twitter debacle might have earned Morgan some sympathy.
