 +One of the British Labour Party'​s most seasoned operatives said his party'​s leadership may have gotten too close to media tycoon Rupert Murdoch.
 +Peter Mandelson, who served under both Prime Minister Tony Blair and his successor Gordon Brown, said both men may have gotten //"​closer than was wise"//​ to the Australian media mogul.
 +Mandelson was speaking Monday before Lord Justice Brian Leveson'​s media ethics inquiry, which is examining links between Britain'​s media and senior politicians.
 +Leveson'​s inquiry is examining whether politicians and press barons traded favors in the run-up to the phone hacking scandal that brought down Murdoch'​s now-defunct News of the World tabloid in 2011.
 +Much recent attention has focused on the warm relations between Murdoch and several British prime ministers, from **Margaret Thatcher** to [[david_cameron|David Cameron]].
