TESTIMONY COMING: British lawmakers say they will grill Rupert Murdoch’s son James about newspaper phone hacking for a second time.

DENIALS: Both Murdochs denied knowing about the scale of the wrongdoing when they appeared before lawmakers earlier. Former News. Corp. employees have since cast doubt on the Murdochs’ testimony. Other senior executives at News Corp. have backed the Murdochs’ claim that they did not know News of the World reporters regularly hacked phones and paid police officers for information.

TIME AND PLACE: The House of Commons Culture, Media and Sport committee says James Murdoch will give evidence on Nov. 10.
