James Murdoch testifies: 'The way companies do business is important'
The Guardian | The New York Times | The Leveson Inquiry
James Murdoch's six-hour testimony today before the British parliament's Leveson inquiry is a gripping microdrama. Attorney Robert Jay, who is questioning Murdoch, flops himself over a lectern and delivers each question as if it had just occurred to him, raising his eyebrows at the end of most inquiries as if to encourage Murdoch to come clean. Jay is lightly bearded, wears ridiculous eyeglasses and looks rumpled. Murdoch replies in a middle-of-the-Atlantic accent -- American flat vowels with British inflections. He's in a sharp, well-fitting suit and so far appears unflapped by Jay's surgical questioning. So far, high points have included:
