During an appearance before the Leveson inquiry, Daily Mail editor Paul Dacre still insisted that actor Hugh Grant was not truthful during his own testimony before the inquiry, calling the actor's words "a mendacious smear." The exchange occurred during Mr. Dacre's discussion of the Daily Mail's coverage of Mr. Grant's supposed relationship with a "plummy-voiced woman." Mr. Dacre defended the paper's coverage and sources, denying the information was obtained through phone hacking. More here from the Guardian.
