    Who is talking about free speech? If a news organization hacked my phone, I wouln't want them on the air. I would want them in prison, where they belong.

    Since the 30's, and you are displaying some pretty cynical beliefs.
    As I said, if that were the case, most broadcasters would no longer have a license. It is amazing this is not the path that partisans have previously used to try to shut down speech.

    This post is just another demonstration of the right wing being supportive of any criminal activity as long as it comes from people who say things they agree with.

    But go on. Defend that hero of a man whose company interfered with a murder investigation.

    I almost posted this as a subject: thanks.

    Yeah, ole' Murdoch is gettin' his comeuppance that's for sure. The Britsh are going to bury that guy: they've had it with him and his hoods.

    This of ourse means that it's only a matter of time before they take all of the air out of Fox News; it's just the same lack of ethics there as well.

    What I hope is that broadcast and print news will use this as an opportunity to go back to being "news division" ala Wlater Cronkite and the best print media money could buy, one issue at a time.

    Fox needn't be shut down so long as Murdoch is no longer involved with it. It's not about free speech, it's about the dubious character of the present owner, and the FCC rules.

    I don't think Fox News needs to be shut down either; I think that theyre' going to be shut down, by being so weakened that they'll be effectivcely run out of the business: couldn't happen to a nicer bunch of guys in my view.

    Have they arrested Murdoch, his son, or shut down Fox? I didn't think so.

    Um, no, you are incorrect. He commented on something that is known to be true, some on the left have and continue to support policies to stifle speech. He never even mentioned murdoch, thus he could not possibly of supported him.

    He's commenting in a thread about Murdoch. Who do you think he was talking about?
