Most cable news networks and their Web sites plan to cover Tuesday’s 6:30 AM PT parliamentary hearing about the News Of The World phone hacking and police bribery scandal. Members of the Culture, Media and Sport committee will have first crack at News Corp CEO Rupert Murdoch, Deputy COO James Murdoch, former News International chief Rebekah Brooks, and former Scotland Yard chief Paul Stephenson. But you might have more fun watching the event from folks who have a special interest in it. Current’s Keith Olbermann — who rarely misses an opportunity to criticize Murdoch — will be all over the event beginning at 6:15 AM PT. Former Nixon counsel John Dean will help to analyze what the Murdochs knew and when they knew it. And the BBC will offer live feeds online beginning at 4:00 AM PT at www.bbc.co.uk/news/. Joining the network correspondents will be Michael Wolff, author of The Man Who Owns The News: Inside The Secret World Of Rupert Murdoch.
