Phone Hacking Victims Testify in London

Monday, November 21, 2011

Individuals who had their phones hacked by as part of the News International scandal — from famous actors to violent crime victims' families — are set to testify against the ethics and behavior of Britain's tabloid press Monday. In its third day, the Leveson inquiry could bring about sweeping governmental reforms in the U.K., including a "register of journalists" that would be maintained by the government.

The BBC's Rob Watson joins us from London to talk about this first round of inquiries, as well as what this could mean for journalism at large in the U.K.

Guests:

Robert Watson
