Parliament's Questioning in Murdoch Scandal Today

The BBC has a terrific and handy "cheat sheet" of the MPs on the House of Commons Culture, Media and Sport Committee who will be questioning Rupert Murdoch (pictured below via), James Murdoch, and Rebekah Brooks today about the scandal that has rocked Great Britain.  The report also has a list of possible questions, mostly of the who knew what when variety.

It is yet unknown whether or not the Murdoch press empire in the United States (including the Wall Street Journal, the New York Post, and Fox News) will be implicated.  However, US ConLawProfs interested in media issues will certainly want to pay attention to today's hearings, which will presumably be the first of many.

Members of the Murdoch Empire crossed the line...glad to see that there is some accountability at least for Rupert Murdoch, James Murdoch, and Rebekah Brooks.
