Elisabeth Murdoch says she won’t take the fall for Rebekah Brookson July 17, 2011 at 2:56 pm
Here’s a unique video of NewsCorp heir Elisabeth Murdoch explaining to former CEO Rebekah Brooks to fall on her sword. Shortly after, Ms. Brooks was arrested in the phone-hacking scandal. (H/t to Iron Spike for tweeting the footage. Karl Hadrika captured the moment; I’m not sure either quite knew what they had…)
Rebekah Brooks spoke at Chris’ girlfriend’s graduation last year. Brooks accepted an honorary award and spoke about how her experience at News of the World should inspire this new generation of creative writers.
Chris was in attendance, and does not remember Brooks mentioning how she was listening in to everyone’s voicemail and texts. It’s one of those pro tips that would have really helped all categories of newbie writers for those times when they run out of ideas of their own.
