This is how Bloomberg Buisinessweek has splashed the News International crisis story in its latest issue out today, showing how coverage is growing in the US.
The article claims: "The refusal of Murdoch and his executives to apologize or engage earlier in a complete and open investigation was not a momentary tactical mistake. According to Murdoch biographer Michael Wolff, author of the 2008 biography The Man Who Owns the News, it was a practiced corporate strategy. It’s 'part of the News Corp. ethos,' says Wolff. 'If you are attacked from the outside, you defend. It’s always us-vs.-them. We’re right, you’re wrong'."
