Rupert Murdoch and his son James Murdoch will be testifying in front of the U.K. parliament’s media select committee today, answering questions about the phone hacking scandal that led to the closure of Murdoch’s News of the World newspaper. Members of parliament will also grill Rebekah Brooks, former chief executive of Murdoch’s News International, who was arrested on Sunday on conspiracy charges.
The phone hacking saga is one of the biggest political scandals in recent U.K. history, and some have speculated that it could not only lead to the end of Murdoch’s reign at the helm of News Corp., (s NWS) but even cost the country’s prime minister David Cameron his job. No wonder media organizations from all over the world are going to cover the testimony live, with hearings beginning at 9:30 a.m. EDT / 6:30 a.m. PDT.
A few outlets are also streaming the testimony live online:
- CNN.com (s twx) will stream the entire testimony live on its website as well as through a number of mobile apps.
- C-SPAN will stream the testimony live as well on C-SPAN3.
