HACKGATE DAY 216: James Murdoch CM&S testimony ‘contradicted by emails sent to committee’.

Breaking….CM&S Com sources say new email batch casts doubt on James Murdoch’s evidence about knowledge of hacking at the News of the World 

It has emerged this morning that, during a meeting of the Culture, Media & Sport Committee (to consider whether James Murdoch, Tom Crone and Colin Myler should be recalled ‘to clarify apparent inconsistencies in their evidence’) some very serious contradictions of Murdoch’s knowledge or otherwise of events have emerged while sifting through further Newscorp internal emails.

During his evidence, Mr Murdoch told MPs he was “not aware” of an email suggesting phone hacking was not limited to one reporter at the NOTW, which was published by News International.

But Mr Myler and Mr Crone said they had informed him about the email and he was “mistaken”.
