when asked whether he could assure Americans that no News Corp. hacking had occurred here, Rupert Murdoch refused to answer

As the News Corporation phone hacking scandal mushrooms, it appears that Murdoch's New York-based Les Hinton has some serious 'splaining to do.

Since 2007, Hinton has been chief executive of Dow Jones, publisher of the Wall Street Journal. But before that, he was chairman of News Corp.’s UK publishing umbrella, News International. The phone hacking didn’t just happen under Hinton’s watch, there’s new evidence he may have helped cover it up. Hinton told a British parliamentary committee that the paper in question, Britain’s now-defunct News of the World, had conducted a “full, rigorous internal inquiry” and concluded that the hacking had been the work of a rogue reporter. That statement has been proven utterly false, of course, and now there are questions about whether Hinton saw beforehand internal News International reports of more widespread hacking. But the presence in New York of a News Corp. exec who may have tacitly or otherwise approved of such illegal tactics (and then lied about it) is only one reason why Americans should be concerned about similar practices being employed in the United States. There are at least five more.

Somehow I doubt he'll shut down fox news quite as quickly as he shut down the news of the world.

I'd imagine there will be some politicians who would love to take this up as a cause. It will be really interesting to see which ones speak out against an investigation.

Keep on getting your opinions from liars, peeping toms, and thieves. It explains your sorry mentality.

This Murdoch scandal will be bad for business for that James O'Keefe guy.

On the other hand, congratulations to Glenn Beck. He got out while the getting was good...

If Fox News disappears, their cretins can always re-join The John Birch Society. "'tis a dream devoutly to be wished."

They don't have to re-join, they are teabaggers now. The new name for the old name.
