There is a television trade industry news magazine called TV Week. They just sent a breaking news bulletin out to their subscribers:
Smoking Gun: E-Mail Was Sent to James Murdoch in Sept. 2008 About Widespread Hacking. Since He Responded to the E-Mail Murdoch Admits Receiving It. But He Says He Was in the Dark Because He Didn't Read the Whole Thing.
TV Week is actually reporting a story being reported in the UK Newspaper The Guardian:
The email chain appears to contradict Murdoch's insistence that he was not briefed in detail on the case which was later settled for more than £700,000.
The forwarded note from the paper's legal manager Tom Crone warned of a "nightmare scenario" because Taylor had obtained firm evidence of the hacking of one of his colleague's phones which involved at least one other News of the World journalist.
Myler's email also contained a second warning, from another lawyer retained by the News of the World, which added that Taylor's legal team wanted to demonstrate that phone hacking was "rife" throughout News International, the British parent company of the red top title.
Murdoch replied to the revealing email within three minutes of it being sent to him – but insisted – on the day the email chain was made public by the culture and media committee for the first time – that he had only read the top of the email, not the email chain below
Little Jimmy is claiming that because it was sent to him on a Saturday, he didn't read it. Sounds legit to me!
