You might remember a few weeks ago, before Britain was burning, that Rupert Murdoch and his cronies were being thoroughly investigated for an international phone hacking conspiracy. Well, a new development came out today in the form of a letter from a former royal correspondant that sheds new light on the scope of the scandal and who knew about it. More or less, it totally negates their testimony, which were given last month.

The best part about this new information might be putting the media attention back on Murdoch and not on the recent riots.
