Lets hope that includes Fair and Balanced Fox News. How would the pro Obama statements stack up against the negative. In terms of minutes in air time about 1 min for 1000 min against. Is this journalism or propaganda out of control.

Dear, this issue seems more important than whether a foolish man is photographing his body parts and sending photos to willing women!

This issue should be investigated because it is serious whether it is a Murdoch company or any other.

For years the gullible right-wingers have regurgitated their forced-fed propaganda about Soros trying to change America, all the while unknowingly supporting the very person that is destroying this country…

Rupert Murdoch.

There is no way in Hell that Murdoch’s media empire’s devious, immoral and illegal activities that were implemented over in Great Britain weren’t being done over here.
I cannot wait until they have to shut down fox news and sell the Wall Street Journal after the DOJ investigations shows that they were doing the same things over here. I loved the fact that we got Glen Beck kicked off the air, but I never thought that we would get fox news so soon and like this… I am a very happy camper this morning.
