Rupert Murdoch has "stuck two fingers up" to the public with his decision to appoint Rebekah Brooks CEO of his newspaper operation, claims one of the victims of the News Of The World's phone-hacking scandal.
Shadow culture secretary Chris Bryant, whose phone was one of those that was hacked by the now closed newspaper, said he felt Brooks was getting special treatment in the wake of the scandal.
He said: "Rupert Murdoch has just stuck two fingers up to the British public and the thousands of people whose phones were hacked by News International.
"Hundreds of ordinary journalists lost their jobs when Mr Murdoch closed the News Of The World, but it seems Rebekah Brooks is to get very special treatment."
