The Culture Media and Sport Committee today publishes its Eleventh Report of Session 2010-12, News International and Phone-hacking (HC 903-I)

Rupert Murdoch exhibited "wilful blindness" to what was going on in his media empire and "is not a fit person to exercise the stewardship of a major international company", MPs have said.

The cross-party culture committee questioned journalists and bosses at the now closed paper, as well as police and lawyers for hacking victims.

It said the News of the World and News International corporately misled Parliament about the scale of phone hacking.

The committee of MPs began its inquiry in July 2011 in the wake of fresh newspaper revelations about the extent of hacking at the tabloid newspaper, with reported victims including the murdered schoolgirl Milly Dowler and the families of victims of the 7/7 London bombings.
