British police have made a formal request to the Exaro News Web site to hand over a secret recording in which Rupert Murdoch indicated that payments to public officials for information was part of the culture of U.K. journalism. While Murdoch didn't admit knowledge of the practice at News Corp.'s (NWS) news outlets in the recording, legislator John Whittingdale said Murdoch might have committed contempt of parliament with what may have been misleading testimony last year.
