Murdoch protegee Brooks cleared of all hacking charges in UK trial

LONDON (Reuters) - Rebekah Brooks, the former boss of News Corp.'s British newspaper arm, was found not guilty on Tuesday by a London court of being part of an illegal conspiracy at a Rupert Murdoch tabloid to hack into phones and make illegal payments.

Though Brooks was acquitted by the jury of all charges, Andy Coulson, Prime Minister's David Cameron's former media chief and ex-editor of one of Murdoch's British titles, was found guilty of being part of the phone-hacking conspiracy.
