Now, across the pond, Great Britian has formally expressed disgust of Murdoch's
On the basis of the facts and evidence before the committee, we conclude that, if at all relevant times Rupert Murdoch did not take steps to become fully informed about phone hacking, he turned a blind eye and exhibited willful blindness to what was going on in his companies and publications. This culture, we consider, permeated from the top throughout the organization and speaks volumes about the lack of effective corporate governance at News Corporation and News International. We conclude, therefore, that Rupert Murdoch is not a fit person to exercise the stewardship of a major international company. source
The loyal Foxaholics will continue to ignore the egregious crimes and abuses of the mafia style Murdoch clan and decry: this is just another liberal attempt to undermine a Fair and Balanced conservative institution because they hate our politics.
They will continue to ignore how FOX appeals to the lowest common denominator, xenophobic fears, social/cultural insecurities, and overall ignorance. Fox's motives: to keep their viewers blindly loyal to a brand of politics that is antithetical to their self-interest.
Hope does not spring eternal for the average FOX addict - they are too hooked on having their news hateful. However, this announcement from across the pond may help stop FOX from poisoning another generation.
