Bravo, Steve Doocy and PR flack. The amount of disingenuousness in this segment is off the charts.

You know News Corp. wasn't hacked into, right?

I'm having trouble deciphering an answer out of that.

I don't know why I engage with you, since your partisan blinders keep you from seeing the ham-handedness of the R's or their propaganda machine.

One last time, though. Doocy and the PR flack are conflating Citibank, <b>which was hacked into</b>, with News Corp., which <b>did the hacking.</b> See a difference? One's a victim, the other's the perp.

I don't see the conflation. The guest is suggesting that the conversation should be about hacking, not about the overblown connection between a few fired hackers who worked for a defunct subsidiary and the ongoing concern, NewsCorp. In other words, he suggests that the present day problem of hacking is more newsworthy than one particular instance of historical hacking by people from an organization that no longer exists.

More important issues indeed.

“For some reason, the public, the media, keep going over this, again, and again, and again” the guest said. “It’s too much,” he added, “We should move on.” <b>Doocy agreed, scolding the media for not devoting its time to covering more important issues. (His show later featured a segment on actress Mila Kunis and a performance by second-tier boy band Lifehouse, popular in 2001.)</b>

Just what do you think NewsCorp as it exists today had to do with the hacking?

All hacking should be dealt with, how to stop them. Same as the gun smuggling operations in AZ and now possibly Florida ?

They are all , serious issues, I would say the ones dealing with the government are the biggest, wouldn't you Pittsie ?

Let's take it a step further. How much of this is Obama/Soros/Holder going after Murdoch and FoxNews because right now the "conservatives voice" a la "We The People" are "f"ing up their "transformational plans" and these "hackers" are just an excuse to go after Murdoch which is the 'real story'.

Steve Doocy = KU grad

The controversy claimed its first victim in the United States as Les Hinton, chief executive of the Murdoch-owned Dow Jones & Co. and publisher of the Wall Street Journal, announced he was resigning, effective immediately.

The sooner we get rid of these scumbags that bow to Obama the better.

Yes, you seem pretty non partisan.

Fox and Friends isn't exactly the hard news part of the Fox lineup. It's not supposed to be the evening news.
