we right-wing people embrace that the government invades our privacy, reads our mail and emails, listens to our phone calls, because it keeps us safe from al queda. now what's the fuss when a media business comitted to the truth, fair and balanced coverage does just the same? here the most moderate report i could find, the leftists european media is fuming of course.

Murdoch Shuts Down News of the World Following Scandal
Yeah, he's a hypocrite, isn't he?

Murdock Wrote:"Indeed, if recent allegations are true, it was inhuman and has no place in our company."

"The News Of The World is in the business of holding others to account. But it failed when it came to itself."

I wonder if the folks at MSNBC would be as hypocritical as he has?
cameron is under fire too, because his press chief and advisor coulsen happens to be the chief editor of "news of the world" at the time the intelligence gathering occured.

murdoch has a man in the british government, a marriage of state and big business. uk is the most socialist country of europe, the nation with the largest number of muslims in europe, and in general a hotbed of islamic terrorism. that's the facts, despite the nominally conservative government. we have to ask ourselves what the true agenda of mr murdoch behind the camouflage of conservative values at foxnews and his tea-party movement is? spreading australo- and euro-socialism to the us? to what extend infected his chinese wife him with communist ideas?

This is debatable. Greece and Scandinavia are more socialist than the United Kingdom.

This recent scandal really affects David Cameron's credibility. He was personally associated with many conservative media moguls, who evidently were reckless and unethical.
Sounds like shutting down a tabloid embroiled in serious charges of hacking cell phones of kidnapped and slain children, soldiers in the battlefield, etc., was the responsible thing to do.
hmm. what about murdoch ordering his serfs not to do this stuff in the first place as a means to increase the profit of the paper?
the witchhunt against our right-wing hero murdoch continues in uk, just because it turned out that all his papers used the means of 'news of the world', and they also spied one the one-eyed idiot who used to be the pm. now, lawmakers want to undermine murdoch's bid on the british sky tv.

why should anybody condemn murdoch for doing the same like wikileaks?
Murdoch was a terrible influence on British politics. His papers manipulated the working class and may have caused the degradation of the Labour Party.

Quote:Murdoch used sex scandal journalism to attack left-wing of the Labour Party and later helped create Tony Blair.

What a tragedy.
Yeah, lets keelhaul him before stringing him up.

Nobody should be that successful, and act so decisively.

How is tabloid journalism, and the violation of people's privacy, even remotely admirable? Murdoch is a despicable man whose news organizations do not enlighten but create senseless controversy.
We should regulate it!

For anyone who isn't a mouthbreather, here is some Steyn on the issue:

Murdoch has his own agenda, which is basically Ayn Rand's agenda. He is anti Christian as well as anti leftist.

Giving him that credit, I see comments like Gommi's as ludicrous.

If you credit Murdoch with maniulating a people group, you are stating they are robots. If that was the case, everyone would be the same from early on with no divisions. No American would ever disagree with US policy, no Brit would over there, no Russki, no Arab,etc.

People are manipulated when they want to believe something. Whether it's valid or not . Arabs tend to distrust Jews, so they are easily manipulated using anti Jewish/Israeli pr, even the Christian Arabs. That's how the world works.

Americans grow up thinking we're special, so if Murdoch pushes that view, he's successful at it. If he pushes the view we suck, Fox would be out of business.

The British working class was once unified in its support for the Labour Party and Social Democracy. Rupert Murdoch's papers however trivialized politics and undermined the Labour Party's voting bloc. Again, tabloids do not promote civil awareness but only perpetuate ignorance.

God forbid he challenge the views of American audiences and expand their understanding of issues.

Sooooo, you are saying that unless news organizations trumpet Euro-Welfare State Collectivism, or any other form of Collectivism, "tabloids do not promote civil awareness, but only perpetuate ignorance"?

Ignorance of what "G"? Ignorance of the truth? S13

So that says the British people are robotic idiots.

I disagree, I just think they changed towards labour after the debacle of the 1945-1970 socialist movement's fallacies became evident to all but the exceedingly blind.

Murdoch or no Murdoch, thinking people disinterested in moving backwards socially and economically would have made the adjustments. Americans are in the process of vomiting the same type trash out of our mouths, probably take another decade.

We didn't need Murdoch and his Ayn Rand bs to make us see it either, we can add and subtract fairly well over here after the 2cd grade. Even when you're on the gravy train, you can see a forest fire moving towards you. If I can, anyone can.

We can read Gommi, we can see S&P,Moody's and others warning us of losing our AAA bond ratings, we can read of China warning us, we can see the global moves to change the US dollar reserve status, we don't need Murdoch to teach us his Ayn Randism. Some of us realize what all this =. Big time loss of wealth for America, so STOP IT is in order.

I wish our democrats would change as well, just stop with their fascist/socialist ideas and return to being for the working man as opposed to worshipping concentrations of money like the GOP has in my lifetime.
That's the second time I have read you tie Murdoch in with Ayn Rand. Got any reading links for this? I'm curious.
jesus, now are the crybabies popping up all over the usa whining that murdoch hacked the phones of 7/11 victims and their families, and bribed ny police to provide information about victims. for god's sake, murdoch and foxnews are the very frontline of the defense of the conservative american way of life against islam and communism, and you have to break an egg to make an omelette.

Quote:"As details of the scandal surrounding News Corporation, have emerged, my defense has been consistent: I had no idea what was going on.

I’m sure you are wondering, how could I, Rupert Murdoch, one of the most powerful men in the world, have no idea what is going on? The answer is simple: I get my news from my own newspapers. If you relied on News of the World, The Sun, and The New York Post for your information, I can assure you that you wouldn’t have a clue what was going on, either."

so true. anyway, the witch-hunt of the leftist media against rupert murdoch goes on. of course they pointed out, that Over the last four years, the Rupert Murdoch's Newscorp conglomerate earned $10 billion dollars and received $4.5 billion in federal refunds after paying zero taxes.
Typical of the Left's double standards to support Wiki Leaks founder Julian Assange's publishing hacked documents, but wants Murdoch's head to roll when one his conservative newspaper is accused of hacking. Why hasn't this double standard been spoken about on the News?
