The Murdoch scandal hits home.
Until now, attention has been centered on what illegal activity Uncle Rupert and his media bullies have been involved in across the pond, in the UK.
But now the spotlight has shifted – with FBI Director Robert Mueller’s announcement that the FBI has opened an investigation into possible illegal activity by Murdoch & Co. here in the United States.
Which is all well and proper. Because you know damn well. If, in order to beat out their competition, Murdoch’s News Corp was buying politicians, bribing cops, and hacking cell phones in the UK, they were doing the same thing here in the United States: at the New York Post, the Wall Street Journal, Fox News – or all three.
It’s amazing to see the entire Murdoch media empire crumble and fall before our very eyes. And it couldn’t happen to a more evil person.
Because, in reality, Rupert Murdoch was no newsman or true media executive. He was nothing but a super-wealthy right-winger who decided to use his fortune to control the world media and tilt it far right.
But now Murdoch is going down. We can only hope he takes Fox News with him.
That’s my parting shot for today.
