James Murdoch tries the Helen Keller defence

In his second appearance before the Commons culture committee, James Murdoch broke down and finally admitted the true reason for not knowing anything about what went on at the News of the World.

This is why he knew nothing of the out of court settlements in relation to phone hacking
This is why he was staggered by the widespread use of private investigators to trail 14 year old school girls…
