Clive Goodman the 53 year old former royal editor and reporter for the Murdoch News International owned 168 year old News of the World (NotW), has again come under scrutiny following the publication of a 2007 letter from him to News International that phone hacking was widely discussed at meetings of senior editorial staff. Goodman had been imprisoned in 2007 for four months pleading guilty to illegally intercepting phone messages. The letter was sent as part of his claim for damages against NotW for wrongful dismissal, and he was subsequently paid a substantial sum by NotW in settlements. Rupert Murdoch and his son James Murdoch now face further embarrassing new allegations of cover-up after the publication of the letter, and dishonesty in their evidence to the UK parliament committee hearing.
