(Newser) – James Murdoch will keep his job as chairman of British Sky Broadcasting thanks to a unanimous decision by the company’s board, an insider tells Bloomberg. His position had been questioned after former executives rejected parts of his testimony before Parliament on the phone hacking scandal. “The role of chairman was discussed at some length,” a source told Reuters, and the board will continue to keep a close eye on the situation as the scandal continues to unfold.
