James Murdoch may have been mistaken during testimony, which basically means that it must have slipped his mind, or lied, that he was aware of one of the biggest pieces of evidence in the News Of The World hacking scandal:
In his testimony, Murdoch denied knowledge of an e-mail between a News of the World reporter and private investigator Glenn Mulcaire containing transcripts of hacked messages between Taylor and Jo Armstrong, a legal advisor for the PFA.
MPs were trying to find out whether Murdoch had known about the hacking when he approved the payment, as that would have implied the hacking was a cause of the payment.
In a statement posted on the Guardian, Colin Myler, the editor of the World before it was shuttered, and Tom Crone, former News International legal manager, claim that they did inform Murdoch of the e-mail.
Oh snap! Looks like he's got some explaining to do then, even though as of now he's standing by his testimony!
If it's found out that he's lying, that'll be big trouble for him for sure.
Always tell the truth, especially when you're giving a testimony!
