Wow I am surprised no one has started a thread on this. Looks like Rupert and his company is in some deep shit for hacking phones including possible Americans that died in 9/11. They also have suspected in hacking phones of dead UK soldiers killed in Iraq and Afghanistan.


The FBI has opened an investigation into whether reporters for Rupert Murdoch's News Corp hacked into the phone records of 9/11 victims, according to the FBI's New York office.

A source with knowledge of the FBI investigation confirmed news of the probe to TPM, saying it's been launched in part because of Rep. Peter King's (R-NY) high-profile letter calling for (http://tpmmuckraker.talkingpointsmemo.com/2011/07/peter_king_calls_for_news_corp_probe_over_allegati.php) an investigation.

Information. This all started in the UK and Murdoch is a POS.

News Corp. has been in crisis mode in the U.K. since a rival newspaper reported last week that its News of the World tabloid hacked into the phone of teenage murder victim Milly Dowler in 2002 and may have impeded a police investigation into the 13-year-old's disappearance.

I am thrilled since I always thought he was scum. I hope he get's nailed. I saw Hugh Grant on TV last night who went undercover on this.

Interviews with dozens of people involved in the hacking scandal, including current and former News Corporation employees, provide an inside view of how a small group of executives pursued strategies for years that had the effect of obscuring the extent of wrongdoing in the newsroom of The News of the World, Britain’s best-selling tabloid. And once the hacking scandal escalated, they scrambled in vain to quarantine the damage.

The DC section is rather painfully slow/if at all in regards to world news.

ADD: This section of CP is concerned with whether Obama used 1 ply or 2 to wipe his ass.

Carry on folks.

Looks like News Corp is doing that fairly well all by themselves.

It's a joke how the right keeps acting like this is the 70s and there are only three channels with news...
