British Phone Hacking Scandal Leads to Arrests

Hosted by

David Cameron today addressed continuing revelations about the relationships between British police, politicians and the media, putting an end to the decades-old practice of Labour and Conservatives Parties "courting the support of the press." An hour after the Prime Minister spoke, one of his own former aides was arrested in connection with the scandal over News of the World, the paper Rupert Murdoch is closing down. Andy Coulson was editor of the paper during a disturbing episode of cell phone hacking. Watching all of this is Sarah Lyall, London correspondent for the New York Times.
