British newspaper readers were greeted by this simple but bold apology as they flipped through the morning headlines.
The letter that signed off by News Corp. CEO Rupert Murdoch was in regard of the ongoing News of the World phone-hacking scandal.
The "ad" was published in seven major national papers, and while generic, the tone of the letter leaves out many of the specific details of the accusations against the paper.
