British Prime Minister David Cameron's former media chief Andy Coulson was convicted of phone hacking Tuesday but one-time Rupert Murdoch aide Rebekah Brooks was acquitted in a dramatic end to the News of the World trial.Cameron issued a somber televised apology for hiring Coulson, showing how toxic the scandal remains nearly three years after News Corp boss Murdoch was forced to shut down the Sunday tabloid in disgrace.The scandal raised questions about the judgment of Cameron in hiring Coulson, who resigned as editor of the News of the World in 2007 after a journalist and private investigator were convicted of phone hacking.Cameron had promised in Parliament when the scandal first broke three years ago that he would make an apology if Coulson was found guilty, and he honored that Tuesday, saying he had given Coulson a "second chance".
