    Default Hey Rupert

    Hey Murdoch, If you are charged under the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act how will you plead?

    If you feel so inclined a comment would be appreciated.

    Respect a believers right to believe, but they should damn well repect our right to challenge such utterly illogical notions.

    Watch, if you can stand to. They roll out some expert, Bob Dilenschneider, to say how hacking is a big problem. It's happened at the Pentagon. It's happened at Citibank. It's happened at the News of the World. When are we going to get serious about it?

    HEY, WAIT A MINUTE!!! Citibank and the Pentagon were the hackees -- the objects of hacking, by criminals or spies. Murdoch's News of the World was the hacker -- the perpetrator, the criminal-or-spy counterpart.

    I submit that this could not happen at any other news organization. Rather, it could not happen at a news organization. It happened at the agitprop operation known as Fox News.

    Update: As several readers have suggested, I should have pointed out the way the segment ends. Steve Doocy of Fox and his expert agree that it's terrible that the mainstream media are wasting so much time on this old-news London hacking story rather than paying attention to what really matters. Which is the segue to ... Casey Anthony.

    As I understand it the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act disallows any American or any American company, corporatio or organisation from engaging in corrupt practices anywhere in the world.
    Murdoch KNEW about and therefore sanctioned payments to UK police. His son James KNEW about and sanctioned payments to the police. They broke Us law. T
    Unless the US legal system is also corrupt these people must be arrested and charged.
    Of course, there are a few notables who have also broken that law. The CEO of Haliburton to name but one.
    I hope the US has enough spikes to display all the heads that should be displayed for all to see.
    This is not party political ID, Trixie, DY, et al.

    Did you see how Fox spun the scandal in the video (see link in the previous post)?


    They are also avoiding reporting on the plight the Dirty Digger is in as much as they can.
