Developments about the News Corp. phone-hacking scandal seem to roll in by the minute. Besides this morning’s news that they’ve hired Edelman, there’s now word that the F.B.I. is opening an inquiry into possible phone-hackings of 9/11 victims. And News International is said to be planning to run full-page apology ads in a number of U.K. newspapers.
Speaking of ongoing news, with Casey Anthony being released from prison on Sunday, HLN is planning more than 19 hours of Anthony coverage this weekend. (Remember, there are only about 48 hours in a weekend.) Many of those hours will be anchored by Nancy Grace. So if you were even thinking about pitching a story to HLN this weekend, choose another station.
