Labour Party M.P. Tom Watson questions James Murdoch today before the House of Commons

Watson:
You’re familiar with the word ‘mafia’?
Murdoch:
Yes, Mister Watson.
Watson:
Have you ever heard the term ‘omerta,’ the mafia term they use for the code of silence?
Murdoch:
I’m not an aficionado of such things.
Watson:
Could News International be described as a group of people who are bound together by secrecy who together pursue their group’s business objectives with no regard for the law, using intimidation, corruption and general criminality?
Murdoch:
I frankly think that’s offensive….
Watson:
Mr. Murdoch, you must be the first mafia boss in history who didn’t know he was running a criminal enterprise.
