Steve Rotherham MP took the opportunity to grill James Murdoch in parliament yesterday before the House of Commons Culture, Media and Sport Committee
and many were surprised to hear Murdoch issue an apology for the disgraceful coverage of Hillsborough in News Internationals flagship tabloid.
You can see the questions and responses to the News International Chairman here:
“I’d like to add my full apology to the wrong coverage of that affair. I’d like to add that voice to successive editors of The Sun and chief executives of News International who since that instance have apologised.”
“It was 22 years ago and I was far away and a much younger person…but I’ve since looked at it, I’m aware of the concerns and the hurt that it caused and it’s something that we’re very sorry for and I am as well.”
