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 Perennial GOP Tax Scam

There's something about taxes that elected Republicans know, but most Americans are completely unaware of. It's the reason we keep falling for the perennial GOP tax scam, and Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell, and their buddies in the White House are getting ready to run this ruse on American working people all over again.
