Every day, the Rupert Murdoch scandal gets more and more serious.
In the UK, ten top Murdoch executives have been arrested so far.
The top two officials of Scotland Yard have been forced to resign.
Prime Minister David Cameron’s government may fall because of his cozy relationship with Rupert.
The first News of the World reporter to blow the whistle on the hacking of cellfones by Murdoch employees is found dead in his apartment.
And, here in the U.S., the editor of the Wall Street Journal has resigned. And the FBI is investigating reports that Murdoch’s minions tried to hack the phones of September 11 victims.
This is serious stuff, folks. It shows that, for the last 30 years, Rupert Murdoch has been dictating policy to police and politicians in the UK.
What we don’t know – yet – is to what extent he’s been paying off police and politicians here in the U.S. But we must find out.
Indeed, it’s safe to assume that if Murdoch and his media goons were paying cops for information, bribing politicians, and hacking cellphones in the UD – they were doing to same thing here in the United States – at the New York Post, the Wall Street Journal, and Fox News.
Let the investigation begin!
That’s my parting shot for today.
