Alice Macandrew, James Murdoch's spokesperson and a high-level News Corp. adviser, resigned back in July at the height of the phone-hacking revelations over differences in opinion about how to handle the rapidly metastasizing scandal. She will remain in her post through the end of the year and loyally, like any good flack, declined to comment. [Guardian UK]
