News Corp. (NWS) Chairman Rupert Murdoch has agreed to testify for a second time to the U.K. Parliament following the emergence of a secret recording last week in which he indicated that payments to public officials for information was part of the culture of U.K. journalism. Murdoch's sentiments were somewhat contrary to his tone at a parliamentary hearing last year, when he said, "Paying police officers for information is wrong."

    It's interesting that News Corp is quoted as saying in today's WSJ:
    ""Mr. Murdoch never knew of payments made by Sun staff to police before News Corporation disclosed that to UK authorities. Furthermore, he never said he knew of payments, It's absolutely false to suggest otherwise." Compare the company's statement with the recorded statements in Rupert Murdoch's own words about what he knew and when. Since Rupert was hardly a "babe in the woods," he undoubtedly knew who some of the likely beneficiaries would be of the cash in the safe.
