With so many storms brewing for Rupert Murdoch, he has given full authority to Sean Hannity and Chris Wallace to be the standard bearers for Fox News Corporation and go full throttle to rally around all Republican candidates regardless of their credentials.

Rupert Murdoch’s family has lost almost $1 billion from the drop in News Corp.(NWSA) stock since the phone-hacking scandal erupted into the headlines and led to the arrest of the company’s top U.K. newspaper executive.
The value of the family’s News Corp. holdings fell to about $4.96 billion today in U.S. trading, from almost $6 billion at the July 1 close, according to data compiled by Bloomberg, before reports that News of the World had hacked into the voicemail messages of murdered U.K. teen Milly Dowler.
The loss of $977 million represents a drop of 16 percent, highlighting the financial consequences for the Murdoch family. Rebekah Brooks, the former chief of Murdoch’s U.K. newspapers, resigned last week and was arrested by police yesterday. At stock’s lowest today, the decline was $1.03 billion.
The fallout has also touched high-level politicians and police officials in Britain. Metropolitan Police Commissioner Paul Stephenson resigned yesterday because of “accusations” about police links to News Corp.(NWS)’s U.K. unit and its hiring of a former journalist at the tabloid as a consultant. Prime Minister David Cameron cut short a trip to Africa to prepare for a statement to Parliament on July 20.
Police are probing allegations of widespread hacking of crime victims, dead soldiers, politicians, celebrities and royal-family members at the now-defunct News of the World. They are also investigating allegations of police bribery.
Brooks, Rupert Murdoch, who is chairman and chief executive officer of the New York-based company, and James Murdoch, who is deputy chief operating officer and chairman of News International were scheduled to appear before parliament to respond to questions.
Standard & Poor’s today put News Corp. debt on “creditwatch with negative implications,” because of risk associated with the investigation.
“The U.K. legal process has expanded and pressure from U.S. lawmakers has increased for an FBI probe” of possible phone hacking in the U.S., S&P said in a statement.
News Corp. Class B voting shares fell 69 cents, or 4.3 percent, to $15.40 at 4 p.m. New York time in Nasdaq Stock Market trading, after dropping to $15.23 earlier. The Class A nonvoting shares declined 68 cents, or 4.3 percent, to $14.97, above the intraday low of $14.76.
Through a family trust, the Murdochs own 306.6 million shares, or 38.4 percent, of News Corp.’s Class B voting stock, according to the company’s proxy statement. Including other family holdings, Rupert Murdoch controls 39.7 percent of the voting power, filings show.
Collectively, Rupert Murdoch, his sons James and Lachlan and the trust hold 5 million shares of the Class A nonvoting stock, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.

Fox is Going Down and Rush is next!!
Spinning a conspiracy theory that puts his listeners’ lives at risk, hate radio merchant Rush Limbaugh argued that government warnings of life-threatening heat are “playing games”:
They’re playing games with us on this heat wave, again. Even Drudge. Drudge getting sucked in here. Going to be 116 in Washington. No, it’s not. It’s gonna be like 100, maybe 99. A heat index, manufactured by the government to tell you what it feels like when you add the humidity in there.

John "The Bonehead" Boehner goes scumbagging with Rush.
We are in real trouble.
Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) outlined the GOP's debt-ceiling plan to conservative commentator Rush Limbaugh on Monday before showing it to his conference.
On Monday during his radio program, Limbaugh talked about the call he received from Boehner. Limbaugh's support of the plan would be advantageous to Republicans because it might help rally the conservative base.
The conservative radio host said Boehner outlined his two-step plan that includes $1.2 trillion in spending cuts and a $1 trillion hike in the debt ceiling. In the second step, a commission would be appointed to come back with additional deficit-reduction proposals, which the Congress could then vote on.
Limbaugh said Boehner told him he was working on the plan with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.). He also said President Obama was irritated at being left out.
"Boehner told Obama that, Obama got aggravated even more that he's been left out of that," Limbaugh said.
In a nod to the conservative anger over the fall-back proposal McConnell had put forward earlier in the month, Limbaugh said: "I'm told that Senator McConnell has been in a better position than he has been lately ... he's on the same page with Boehner now."
This isn't the first time Boehner has called Limbaugh to voice his position on the debt talks.
Boehner also phoned in to Limbaugh's show last Friday to give him the inside scoop following reports that Republican leaders and the White House were close to finalizing a deal.

Fox is going down and fox is next.
Here is some news you will never see reported by O'Reilly, or anyone at Fox. For the first time in history S&P downgraded the US credit, because of the Republican position on tax increases, and because of the Bush tax cuts, and they even say that in their report.
Reuters reported this: "The United States lost its top-notch AAA credit rating from Standard & Poor's on Friday, in a dramatic reversal of fortune for the world's largest economy." The new rating is AA+.
In explaining their decision Standard & Poors cites both the decision by Republicans in Congress to turn the debt ceiling into a political football and the Republicans intransigence on tax increases. Some excerpts from the release:
The political brinksmanship of recent months highlights what we see as America's governance and policymaking becoming less stable, less effective, and less predictable than what we previously believed.
The statutory debt ceiling and the threat of default have become political bargaining chips in the debate over fiscal policy.
It appears that for now, new revenues have dropped down on the menu of policy options.
The act contains no measures to raise taxes or otherwise enhance revenues, though the committee could recommend them.
Compared with previous projections, our revised base case scenario now assumes that the 2001 and 2003 Bush tax cuts, due to expire by the end of 2012, remain in place.
We have changed our assumption on this because the majority of Republicans in Congress continue to resist any measure that would raise revenues, a position we believe Congress reinforced by passing the act.
Standard & Poors also said that they could improve their rating for the U.S. if "the 2001 and 2003 Bush tax cuts for high earners lapse from 2013 onwards, as the Obama Administration is advocating."
And btw folks, the Wall Street Journal reported this: "A spokesman for Rep. Eric Cantor, the House GOP majority leader, declined to comment Friday night."

Hey Zero, did you write that all by yourself?

Rush Limbaugh is nothing if not stubborn. He’s now obstinately resisting an international outcry over his incendiary comments about Africa’s Lord’s Resistance Army.
This band of child-abductors, rapists and killers is acknowledged as bad news by pretty much everyone. Everyone, that is, except for Limbaugh, who took to the air shortly after President Obama announced he was dispatching 100 military advisers to help take them on.
“Now, up until today, most Americans have never heard of the Lord’s Resistance Army. And here we are at war with them. Have you ever heard of Lord’s Resistance Army, Dawn? How about you, Brian? Snerdley, have you? You never heard of Lord’s Resistance Army? Well, proves my contention, most Americans have never heard of it, and here we are at war with them. Lord’s Resistance Army are Christians. It means God. I was only kidding. Lord’s Resistance Army are Christians. They are fighting the Muslims in Sudan.”Much to Limbaugh’s amusement, this passage is now part of the Congressional Record, as last week Sen. James Inhofe (R-OK) quoted it on the Senate floor. Inhofe cited this exchange between Limbaugh and his helpers, and then moved on to tackle Limbaugh for taking the vicious LRA’s religious claims at face value.
“I want to make sure everyone knows that [the LRA’s leader] was officially disavowed by the Catholic Church in Uganda,” Inhofe said.
Limbaugh did not respond to this part of the criticism. Instead he tried to wriggle his way out. He completely ignored the dressing-down about the LRA’s well documented brutality, and instead conceded that he had been “misinformed” about whether the advisers President Obama deployed were intended for active combat.
