Rupertgate Thursday - The Games Begin.

Rupertgate Thursday - just disclosed and confirmed that both James and Rupert Murdoch will appear before the Home Affairs Select Committee regarding the Phone Hacking Scandal.

<strong>Could be interesting - could be inflammatory - can't be boring.</strong>


As it was reported less than an hour ago (at 9:00 am PDT), both James and Rupert Murdoch will be appearing before the Home Affairs Select Committee regarding the scandal, the fallout and the firestorm.

While momentum has been building and speculation increasing over what possible or probable repercussions are to be had here in the U.S. still remain to be seen, news and events surrounding this scandal are not going away in the UK anytime soon.

If anything, the Hearings, starting with Rebekah Brooks next Tuesday, should be interesting. Whether they will shed any light on what has been a long-running method of operation and a style of doing business is still a big question mark.

Here is the latest news as reported on the BBC 4 program PM, including an extended interview with Vince Cable, another figure who entanglements with Newscorp/News International cost him considerably.

The day ain't over and anything can still happen. And true to form, it just may.

Stay tuned.
