LONDON (AP) — The former chief executive of Rupert Murdoch’s News International has pleaded not guilty to all charges related to phone hacking.

Rebekah Brooks entered pleas today at London’s Southwark Crown Court along with almost a dozen other defendants in the phone hacking scandal that rocked Britain’s political and media establishment.

The scandal erupted in 2011 after it was revealed that journalists at News International’s now-shuttered News of the World tabloid routinely hacked into the voice-mail messages of the rich, the powerful and other potential information sources.
