Could the Rupert Murdoch phone hacking scandal soon turn to Fox so-called News?

1 post / 0 new

A team of lawyers are in the United States working with at least ten people who have complaints against Murdoch’s News Corporation – the parent company of Fox News. Most of the complaints are against the now shuttered British tabloid News of the World – but the lawyers claims the allegations extend to Fox News as well.

As the lead lawyer Mark Lewis said about his clients’ claims – they are, “raising issues against other [News Corp] titles or Fox News, not necessarily about hacking but about other untoward dark arts to obtain information that should be private.” The Republican Party should be most frightened by this news – since they’d have no chance to win in November without their primary mouthpiece.

We Need to Listen to the Founders and Stop the Forever War.

Just a little over a year ago during his speech at the National Defense University here in Washington, D.C., President Obama talked about winding down Bush’s War on Terror. But as American bombers continue to strike against ISIS in Iraq and now Syria, it now looks like the War on Terror will be with us for years to come. And that’s a really dangerous thing for our democracy.
