Jon Stewart: Fox News, 'NY Post' 'Jealous' They Can't Cover Murdoch Scandal (VIDEO)
The Huffington Post Katla McGlynn
First Posted: 7/20/11 10:14 AM ET Updated: 7/20/11 12:27 PM ET

Jon Stewart caught up to Stephen Colbert's coverage of the Rupert Murdoch scandal Tuesday night, running over 'The News Of The World''s myriad offenses but focusing specifically on how Murdoch's other media properties are handling the story.

I am no fan of any individual (or group) controlling a huge chunk of anything but I also am no fan of groups blaming crimes and indiscressions by employees on CEO's.
Murdock had about as much knowlege of how each news reporter got news as Obama has about how each IRS clerk gets income information to test my taxes. If illegal means were used for either of these then the man at the top should appologize but not have more responsibility then that.

I find your statement naive, and ironic. Rupert Murdoch would be one of the first people on this planet to tell you that if it happened on Obama's watch, it was Obama's responsibility. I think President Obama would agree with that. I just think Murdoch is acting just like the weasel he has always been. Have you ever heard the term "corporate culture"?

The Justice Department is putting together subpoenas as part of its probe into allegations of criminal misconduct by News Corp., the Wall Street Journal reported on Thursday night. The subpoenas are a sign that the phone hacking crisis surrounding the company is becoming a more serious problem in the U.S.

While the media played yesterday’s appearance by Murdoch pere et fils as a rousing success, it looks like James Murdoch perjured himself and that two witnesses just turned.

Two new browser plugins are here to help you with your Murdoch-detecting needs: Murdoch Block is a Chrome extension that warns you when you’re about to visit a news site controlled by the Murdoch empire and gives you the chance to turn away before the phone-hacking, ethics-lacking propaganda meets your eyes; and Murdoch Alert puts a helpful warning bar at the bottom of your browser whenever you land on a Murdoch-controlled news page.

There have been countless independent investigations into the scientists whose emails were hacked in November 2009. And the scientists have been (quietly) vindicated every time.

But we still don’t know who hacked the emails! And now we know that one of the key investigative bodies tasked with tracking down the hackers—Scotland Yard—was compromised at the time.

How were they compromised? Neil Wallis—the former News of the World executive editor—became a “£1,000 ($1,613) a day” consultant to Scotland Yard in October 2009. Last week, he became the ninth person arrested in the metastasizing News Corporation scandal “on suspicion of conspiring to intercept communications, contrary to section 1(1) Criminal Law Act 1977.”

Rupert and James Murdoch have even more explaining to do after today's arrest of James Desborough, the former U.S. editor of News of the World, and Tuesday’s allegations that top editors at the paper knew about the use of phone hacking by reporters. While the Murdochs have pleaded ignorance about the sordid doings of their underlings, a growing pile of evidence suggests that at least James was very much in the loop. That is not surprising. You don’t build a business empire – or even inherit one – by being a hands-off boss. What’s more, subordinates in major corporations don’t tend to commit serious crimes unless they think such behavior is okay with the boss.

Fox Spins Cantor's Comments On Disaster Relief

Quote:
Fox News is spinning Rep. Eric Cantor's statement that disaster relief should be paired with spending cuts -- comments consistent with statements Cantor has made in the past -- as a simple "word of caution" against future government stimulus.
(Just think, if the Sherman Anti-trust laws and the Fairness Doctrine was in play, Fox would be in violation of using the word "News"..... )

Pressure mounts on Murdoch family in hacking probe

Quote:
(Reuters) - Britain's parliament on Tuesday said it would recall Rupert Murdoch's son James to answer more questions in its probe into News Corp's hacking scandal and U.S. shareholders raised the stakes in a legal battle with the company.

The two moves reignited a long-running controversy that has already damaged the British establishment and threatened the media magnate's once untouchable political influence.

British politicians said they would call James Murdoch for further questioning, probably in November, after employees appeared to contradict his statements that he had only limited knowledge of the widespread hacking at a News Corp newspaper.

There seems to be an Attitude in the Media that all this is rather like Naomi Campbell suing the Daily Mirror or something (which she did about 12 Years ago) resulting in a Slap on the Wrist and Compensation. It isn't, and Operations Weeting and Elveden are criminal not civil Investigations. When it is eventually brought to Court it won't be Plaintif Vs Defendant in a County Court - it'll be R Vs (whoever) in a Crown Court brought by the CPS, and could result in Gaol Sentences.

As such 'Exhibit A' should be the Journalists Code of Conduct. Meanwhile though, if Ben Bradley went through it like Robards does in the famous Film like it were Washington Post Copy about all he'd have left would be the Title!

It has also raised serious Questions about the Ethics of Research - like when does Research become Intrusion? This will have wide ranging Effects in other Areas of Life than just the Media!

Very true - and you don't become one by not knowing everything there is to know about your Competitors either. What this means is that as 7 Figure Salary Execs start to realise that their Limousine Lifestyles are potentially finished they'll begin spilling the proverbial on some of them.
