    It seems Murdoch Junior misled a parliamentary committee when he denied knowledge of a certain email. A past editor, and past company lawyer have announced that they both remember informing him about it. He could be looking at failing to inform the police of a crime, or since he agreed an out of court settlement with a confidentiality clause involving the email, THAT could well be "perverting the course of justice", with a maximum term of life imprisonment.

    Murdochs to face questions in UK parliament | WORLD News

    "One of Rupert's most trusted executives Les Hinton has resigned over the scandal, as has former News of the World editor and News International chief executive Rebekah Brooks, who faces police charges.

    "He is 80. I think the chances of him passing on the business to his son James are extremely unlikely. We're hearing almost daily shareholders in News Corporation asking for change at the top and that means change of the Murdoch family," said Sinclair."
    Wow. I don't feel sorry for them either. What they let happen was disgusting, and they should have known what was going on in the company.

    Do you fail to understand that this has little to nothing to do with liberal vs conservative. It has to do with justice and seeing that the most powerful people aren't above it.

    Couldn't agree more. What happened was NOT acceptable. Those journalists should lose everything because they are disgrace to the career.

    You must have not seen the original thread title.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Left wingers generally despise fox news. SO its not hard to guess that it was a lib or left winger that came up with the original OP title "Sayonara, FOX "News" (let's hope)"

    I am surprise it wasn't "Sayonara, FAUX "News" (let's hope)"

    Most americans generally despise criminals, and it's not hard to guess that there's been criminal behavior here. Only the most hyper-partisans would think their crimes are a left/reight issue

    I never said I think their alleged crimes are a left/right issue.
