The fallout from the News of the World phone-hacking scandal is causing plenty of clucking in other corners of the News Corp. empire. One immediate result of the scandal was a decision by Rupert Murdoch to split his empire in two, splitting the now-tainted publishing divisions off from the entertainment units. Among the first casualties of that separation was Jon Miller, who stepped down as News Corp.’s chief digital officer and has now been replaced by Paul Cheesbrough, with the title of chief technology officer reporting directly to Murdoch. Now the seismic waves have reached Hollywood. On Friday, long-time Fox Filmed Entertainment co-chairman Tom Rothman was forced out of the studio, which will now be headed solely by Jim Gianopulos. the Fox Broadcasting unit was also realigned and will now report to News Corp. president Chase Carey rather than through the studio. Fun times.
