The empire of Rupert Murdoch is experiencing sad times when it comes to issues of honesty in the media. Of course, anyone who has watched Fox News understands that lying and distortion are its media products. A new report from England reveals the Murdoch News of the World hired a specialist private investigator to run covert surveillance on two victims of the paper’s stories. It also turns out political leaders who opposed the paper were also secretly video taped in order to uncover stories that could be used to smear them.
The only question is: why is anyone surprised that Murdoch’s folks would seek to smear an opponent? Doesn’t the world remember Fox News attacks on President Obama and his supposed birth in Kenya? The essence of a Murdoch media company is:
Smear, distort, lie, and plead persecution when discovered!
