The Culture Media and Sport Select Committee into News International and phone-hacking, included this comment(p70)
If at all relevant times, Rupert Murdoch did not take steps to become fully informed about phone-hacking, he turned a blind eye and exhibited wilful blindess to what was going on in his companies and publications.
This culture, we consider, permeated from the top throughout the organisation and speaks volumes about the lack of effective corporate governance at News Corporation and News International.
We conclude therefore that Rupert Murdoch is not a fit person to exercise the stewardship of a major international company.
This is the man who controls 70% of Australian media. Around the world, the true nature of Murdoch is being revealed, in Australia, nothing. Not Fit and Proper. Apparently there is no need for a media enquiry in this country
