Time For Answers From Prime Minister David Cameron

British Prime Minister David Cameron admitted Thursday that the country’s politicians are too close to the press, but he also denied he made any overt deals or gave a “nod and wink” to Rupert Murdoch’s newspaper to win its support.

Cameron is testifying before the Leveson Inquiry into media standards which was spurred by the phone hacking scandal involving a Murdoch-owned newspaper.
