The tycoon of the information, Rupert Murdoch, has a sixth sense for troubles, this time he recognized that the News of the World crisis is reaching a dangerous point.
British newspapers today published an apologizing letter from Murdoch entitled “Sorry.” The text says: “We apologize for the serious mistakes we have made. We apologize for the harm suffered by those affected. We regret not having acted faster. I recognize that only an apology is not enough.”
Yesterday he fired Rebekah Brooks, the designated councilor of News International.
Afterwards Murdoch showed kindness when he addressed the family of Milly Dowler, the 13-year-old girl which phone was hacked in 2002 by News of the World. Today James Murdoch announced that several ads will appear in the pages of News Corporation to apologize about their previous mistakes.
Meanwhile the FBI announced that a serious investigation will begin in order to discover if the journalists of Murdoch used in the United States the same illegal techniques to spy on the British market. The revelation that nine years ago News of the World spied a missing girl in the United States means something else to investigators. This could mean that Murdoch could have spied the victims of the 9/11 attack. (AV)
