Murdoch denies any guilt

The US-Australian media magnate Rupert Murdoch has apologized to the victims of the eavesdropping scandal in Great Britain. But he himself will not accept any responsibility for it. "That to me is the day the greatest humility," Murdoch said on Tuesday during a hearing held by the Culture Committee of the British Parliament.

He himself had only learned recently that his now-defunct tabloid journalists "News of the World" even had tapped the phone of a kidnapped and later murdered British girl's guilt and manipulation. "Shocked and disgusted," he was about it. "We have abused the trust of our readers," said the 80-year-old chief executive of American company News Corp., one of the largest media companies in the world.

The question of a deputy, if he saw himself personally responsible for the machinations of its journalists denied Murdoch. He trusts his employees. During the committee meeting, a young man in the audience attacked him and tried Murdoch apparently with a paper plate full of shaving cream to smear.
