News Corporation Scandal
The News Corporation scandal developed in mid-2011 out of a series of investigations following up the News of the World royal phone hacking scandal of 2005–2007. Where initially the scandal appeared contained to a single journalist at News Corporation subsidiary News of the World, with the 2007 jailing of Clive Goodman and the resignation of then editor Andy Coulson, investigations eventually revealed a much wider pattern of wrongdoing.
 This led to the closure of the News of the World on 10 July 2011, an apology by Rupert Murdoch in an advertisement in most British national newspapers, and the withdrawing of News Corporation`s bid to take over the majority of BSkyB shares it did not own.
Investigations continued into what the company and individuals at the company knew of the phone hacking and when, as well as into other issues, including questions around police bribery. Since police renewed investigations in 2011, 90 people have been arrested and 16 charged with crimes in conjunction with illegal acquisition of confidential information, many if not most of them employees or agents of News Corp.
Research matters as they relate to the questions –a starting but not necessarily authoritative source is
Search many other sources that relate to this topic.
Answer the following four (4) questions related to the causes of the disaster and lessons that might hopefully be learned to avoid a similar situation occurring (equal marks for each question).

• What monitoring or controlling processes should have been in place to prevent or quickly identify any problems occurring in the news reporting business?
• Describe the overall impact on the global media, newspapers, staff, politicians and investors due to failures in the control processes in News Corporation.
