The British Phone Hacking Scandal
Friday, October 01, 2010
In 2008, two men associated with a London tabloid were found guilty of hacking into the cellphone voice mail messages of the royal family and others. But in the last few months there have been indications that the scandal extends much further. Indeed hundreds of people may have had their privacy violated and the editor of the tabloid is now communications director for the new British Prime Minister. BBC Radio host Steve Hewlett explains the scope of Hack-Gate.
