The independent directors who refused to endorse Rupert Murdoch’s choices as editors of the Times and Sunday Times are not scheduled to meet again until March, potentially prolonging the uncertainly over the appointments by at least five weeks.

John Witherow and Martin Ivens, the editor and deputy editor of the Sunday Times were named “temporary acting editors” of the daily and Sunday titles 10 days ago, after the independent national directors of Times Newspapers, who are charged with guaranteeing the independence of the two papers, told Murdoch they would not be rubber-stamping their appointments.
