British PM backs Murdoch's NewsCorp deal for BSKYB
UK Prime Minister Cameron says phone hacking scandal will not affect Murdoch's buyout of BSkyB
By The Associated Press

LONDON (AP) ' British Prime Minister David Cameron said the phone hacking scandal will not affect Rupert Murdoch's politically sensitive multibillion pound (dollar) takeover of broadcaster BSkyB in Britain.

The government has already given qualified approval to Murdoch's NewsCorp. to take full control of the satellite broadcaster. Media regulator OFCOM now has to sign off the deal.

Opposition leader Ed Miliband had asked Cameron to reconsider after allegations that Murdoch-owned tabloid News of the World had hacked into the mobile phones of a missing schoolgirl and the families of London terror victims, in addition to celebrities and royals.

Cameron said Wednesday that the government had followed the correct procedures over the BSkyB deal.
