In Rupert Murdoch’s Internal Investigation, the Embattled News Corp. is Changing Around Him | Business | Vanity Fair
The News of the World suspended Ian Edmondson, the paper’s assistant news editor, who was implicated in the e-mails. In March, the News Corp. board was given a briefing on the state of the phone-hacking situation in London. “Nobody was really paying much attention in New York at that time,” a former News Corp. executive told me.
