News of the World Phone-Hacking Scandal; British Prime Minister David Cameron Weighs In (VIDEO)

Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp. is trending after British Prime Minister David Cameron agreed to a public inquiry regarding its phone-hacking scandal.

Murdoch’s News of the World, a widely circulated British tabloid, which is under fire for hacking into the voice mails of celebrities and other prominent public figures, shocked Britain and the world after it was revealed they had also hacked the phone of Milly Dowler, a 13-year-old girl who was abducted and murdered in 2002.

While Cameron did not call for then-Editor Rebekah Brooks’ resignation, he did say that the allegations were “absolutely disgusting.” Several companies, including Ford Motor, have begun pulling advertisements from News of the World.
