THE PROMISE: Britain's culture secretary says he will disclose all the texts and emails he sent to a special adviser who resigned amid questions over too-close contacts the government may have had with Rupert Murdoch's News Corp.
THE REGULATOR: Minister Jeremy Hunt was responsible for deciding whether News Corp. would be allowed to take full control of British Sky Broadcasting, in which it holds a 39 percent stake.
LOBBYING: A News Corp. lobbyist had been in contact by email with Hunt's office, mainly with special adviser Adam Smith. Smith resigned on Wednesday, taking responsibility for the correspondence.
