Rupert and James Murdoch are scheduled to appear before a British panel on media standards this week.

They will be questioned about practices at their Newscorp newspapers in light of the phone hacking scandal that forced the closure of the News Of The World.

James Murdoch has resigned as head of the UK newspaper business that owns the Sun, Times and Sunday Times.

He told members of Parliament last year he had no prior knowledge of the scale of wrongdoing on the newspapers he controlled.

This segment aired on April 23, 2012.
