With new allegations that Britain's ex-PM Gordon Brown was also a target of the hacking scandal, Murdoch's feeble attempts to circle the wagon of his media conglomeration is starting to backfire. The latest news points a finger at two additional News International newspapers, The Sun and The Sunday Times.

Thus far, no apologies from Murdoch. Watch this space for details...
