Daily Mail publisher launches review after scandal
Wednesday, August 3, 2011
LONDON (AP) -- The publisher of Britain's Daily Mail newspaper says it is reviewing its editorial procedures following Britain's tabloid phone hacking scandal.
Associated Newspapers Ltd. says that Liz Hartley, the company's head of editorial legal services, would be among those working on the review.
The terse statement released late Thursday revealed few other details and Hartley did not immediately return emails seeking further comment.
Britain's media has been badly shaken by allegations of systematic lawbreaking at Rupert Murdoch's News of the World tabloid. The scandal has already led to the tabloid's closure and derailed its owner's multibillion pound (dollar) bid for satellite broadcaster BSkyB and the resignation of two top police officers.
