Hey, this would make a great reality TV show.
LOS ANGELES — A defiant Rupert Murdoch stood his ground at News Corp's annual meeting on Friday, fending off angry shareholders who slammed the media company's poor corporate governance in the wake of a phone hacking scandal and called for him to give up the chairman role.
British member of parliament Tom Watson led the charge against the media mogul, saying journalists at the defunct News of the World hacked computers as well as phone voice mails.
Watson said News Corp could face new investigations in the UK by the country's Serious Organised Crime Agency, caused by the actions of at least three private investigators employed by News International, News Corp's UK newspaper publishing unit.
