ebekah Brooks (pictured) and Andy Coulson, two former editors of News Corp's now shuttered British tabloid News of the World, are among eight ex-journalists who have been charged in the sweeping phone hacking scandal that exploded in 2011. The two former editors were charged with several hacking offenses that affected some 600 people from 2002 to 2006, including accessing the voicemail of a murdered child, Molly Fowler, in 2002. News Corp., which is controlled by Rupert Murdoch, "is trying to move on from the scandal after civil lawsuits and a parallel media-ethics inquiry that began last year revealed damaging evidence about hacking and other wrongdoing."
