Murdoch scandal deepens

Posted By on Fri, Jul 15, 2011 at 6:41 AM

More good news on the Murdoch front.

Rebekah Brooks, chief executive of Murdoch's News International, has been forced to resign.

The U.S. attorney general is considering an investigation of the phone hacking. The FBI is looking into questions about hacking into 9/11 victims' phones.

Rupert and Son have been forced to agree to testify before parliament.

And what did a top Murdoch hand at the Wall Street Journal know when he was working for Murdoch's British newspapers.

This is all getting fair and balanced coverage on Fox, I presume.
