From Nico Hines writing at the Daily Beast:

Rupert Murdoch’s former British security chief has broken the company’s code of silence to blow the whistle on what he describes as an “underhand” media empire rife with “potential illegal activity.”

Mark Hanna was director of security for News U.K. (formerly News International) for six years, including at the height of the phone-hacking scandal. During that tumultuous period, he says he became extremely close to some of the company’s most senior executives, including Rebekah Brooks and Andy Coulson.

“Conversations took place, notes were taken and even confessions were made,” he said, in a cellphone video uploaded to YouTube. “I intend to tell you everything that I know, which I’m sure will shock everybody.”

Hanna claims he came across potentially illegal activity from the moment he started work at the British arm of Murdoch’s media juggernaut.
