Rupert Murdoch and his son James were the most negatively talked about witnesses to appear before Lord Leveson according to new research measuring the online chatter around the inquiry into media ethics.

At 36%, Rupert Murdoch generated the most negative buzz compared to the other witnesses. James was the second most negatively talked about witness at 26%.

Despite their apparent unpopularity in the eyes of the public, Jeremy Hunt and Rebekah Brooks both received a relatively even amount of negative and positive online buzz.

The Independent's owner Evgeny Lebedev was viewed a ‘Saint’ with only 4% negative buzz.

The findings come from Meltwater Group which used its tracking platform Meltwater Buzz to gauge the public's reaction to some of Leveson's key witnesses.
