Les Hinton to Be Questioned by Parliament

(Via The Guardian)

Les Hinton, the former Publisher of The Wall Street Journal and Dow Jones CEO, is going to be questioned by Parliament about his knowledge of the phone hacking scandal.

When Hinton resigned in July, he reiterated his stance that the phone hacking had been an isolated incident involving just one reporter, but since then there has been some evidence that points to the contrary.

Hinton has always been close to Rupert Murdoch, so we’re guessing this investigation is starting to hit a little too close to home for the News Corp. CEO.

The Huffington Post reports that Hinton will be questioned via video on October 24.
