    Try to pay attention to the real world.

    the phone thing I wouldn't put past them, as for meetings with the Prez....I am positive that they probably do.

    Fox News will still be on the air in the US. I know the Libbys don't want hear it, but accept it and your blood pressure won't go off the charts when it happens.

    Actually there is a bit of doubt about the deleting part. Seems the service maybe auto deletes the oldest messages after a certain number of messages and time. Because of the investigation still going on, then the information on this part is limited.

    But that does not change the fact that hacking the messages gave the illusions she was still alive and accessing the messages.

    Has anyone in the parent company of MSNBC or at MSNBC been implicated in hacking and illegal wire tapping? While MSNBC may or may not be biased, there is a difference between them and Fox News.. they are not owned by a company involved in criminal actions. But if you know more then do tell..

It was all done to feed his UK tabloid empire with gossip and to extend his political influence with the threat of smear. Murdoch loved the tabloids, the gossip game, he started his empire with those seed businesses, now it might be his end.

    He did it to himself, your argument is that it was done to him......that is not how it is.

    First of all Murdoch didn't tap one line and was never implicated in approving what one very small part of his media empire was doing. The idea that his entire organization worldwide should be banned or shutdown or that Murdoch himself should step down is ludicrous and entirely political.
    It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.

    Doesn't this sum up the US "shocking - but unsubstanitate" report?

    Ah, again you put words in the mouths of others. Go freaking figure. Nothing of value to see in your posts or the fantasy you live in.

    A good bit of leftist dream world fantasy in that post for a 'centrist'.

    Bias alert! Bias alert!

    As if the left leaning outlets do not lie and knowingly pass on incendiary and inaccurate information. Get a grip.
