'Most humble day of my life', Murdoch tells UK lawmakers
News Corp. chief Rupert Murdoch told British lawmakers "this is the most humble day of my life" at the start of a parliamentary hearing Tuesday over the News of the World phone hacking scandal.
His son James Murdoch, chief executive of News Corp's Europe and Asia operation, added: "I would like to say just how sorry I am and how sorry we are, to particularly the victims of illegal voicemail interceptions, and to their families.
"It's a matter of great regret of mine, my father's and everyone at News Corporation.
"These actions do not live up to the standards that our company aspires to everywhere around the world and it is our determnation to both put things right, make sure these things don't happen again and to be the company that I know we have always aspired to be."
