From various articles.
Summary: NewsCorp-run UK newspaper, News of the World, has been recently involved in a huge scandal over their investigation methods. More specifically, News of the World has in the past hacked the voicemails of dead soldiers and in one case a missing girl, who later turned out to be dead. Murdoch closed News of the World as a result. The FBI is probing other NewsCorp media outlets due to the egregious methods uncovered in the UK. The ex-Editor of the News of the World has been arrested.
Whatever it takes, however they can, the regime and the State-Run Media WILL TRY to silence critics.
WOW! I knew this would happen some day. Anythign to get rid of FOX news.
It appears that somebody DID hack phones, at least in Britain. And those people worked for a News Corp publication. And such an activity is a crime and is liable for prosecution.
Trying to dump all this personally into the lap of Rupert Murdoch is where it gets nakedly political.
I have no idea why so many people on FR worship Fox News. If Rupert Murdoch's people were hacking 9/11 victims' families and heads of state then Rupert Murdoch's people need to go to prison for a long time. Who cares if it's Fox news or CNN, it's a massive invasion of privacy and has nothing to do with free speech.
will they investigate other MSM reporters for the same thing?
how many others like cnn, msnbc, cbs, nyt, wpo, yahoo, google, were doing the exact same thing?
"...but now people wish to condone the hacking of 9/11 Victim’s voice mails."
You have proof of this, or are you merely parroting what some left-wing rag in England alleges?
"Cry me a river. If conservatives need Fox to survive, they're even more screwed than they know."
When they come after FRee Republic and Jim Rob over some imaginary crime, I want you to email me and say the same thing.
That is if emails still are allowed.
I don’t think this story is going to play in the US. Who cares what a Brit paper does, no matter who owns it.
