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 Death of the Middle Class was by Design...

Even in the face of the so-called Recovery, poverty and inequality are getting worse in our country, and more wealth and power is flowing straight to the top. According to Paul Buchheit over at Alternet, this is the end result of winner-take-all capitalism, and this destruction of the working class has all been by design.
