Reading Dial M for Murdoch by Tom Watson and Martin Hickman gave me the same feel as watching the movie Apollo 13. I knew the ending. I knew some broad strokes. News of the World, a Murdoch paper, got caught hacking the phone of a missing girl, they got busted. Some cops were involved, News International got caught covering it up and decided to shut down News of the World. People were paid off, some Murdoch executives went to jail, some powerful political aids and police resigned and then Murdoch got a pie in the face while testifying.

A UK parliamentary committee, the Culture, Sports & Media Committee (CSMC), which has been investigating the News of the World phone hacking scandal for the past months, released letters from various individuals involved in the scandal. The contents include new revelations on News International’s approval and support of the practice of phone hacking.
