The Rupert Murdoch phone-hacking scandal could be coming to the United States

2 posts / 0 new

This week – the lead lawyer filing suit against Murdoch’s media empire in the U.K. – Mark Lewis – is headed to the United States where he intends to file three lawsuits on behalf of people who believed their phones were hacked while they were on U.S. soil. One of those people is reported to be an American citizen.

So far the phone hacking scandal has led to multiple arrests of Murdoch’s employees in the U.K. and the shuttering of Murdoch’s News of the World tabloid. But – the scandal has yet to reach the home base of Murdoch’s media empire known as NewsCorp in New York City – where Murdoch’s gem Fox so-called News operates. This is a story definitely worth keeping a close eye on.

I hope this speech lives on FOREVER!

I "double-dog-dare" for Thom Hartmann to quote this speech WORD FOR WORD on "The Big Picture". I wish every "news" institution quoted this speech... what would happen?

What would happen?

The other way we're subsidizing Walmart...

Most of us know how taxpayers subsidize Walmart's low wages with billions of dollars in Medicaid, food stamps, and other financial assistance for workers. But, did you know that we're also subsidizing the retail giant by paying the cost of their environmental destruction.
