Police bribes,illicit cell phone tracking, and allegations that UK News Corps journalists targeted a former prime minister and possibly members of the royal family: Allegations of phone hacking were thought to have been relatively isolated incidents, but now it seems the hacking was widespread, and the questions keep coming.

Murdoch’s holdings include film studios, television stations and news papers around the world including the Wall Street Journal and Fox News.
