The media empire of Rupert Murdoch has transformed the dissemination of news into catering to the lowest common denominator of lies and deception. Rupert has been caught in a sordid tale in which one of his English newspapers hacked email accounts, paid off police, distorted the truth, ruined the lives of innocent people and finally made the people of Great Britain understand they have been fed a distorted version of the truth by Murdoch media outlets. Here in America we have to endure daily distortions of reality from Fox News. Imagine, that in the 21st century two nincompoops like Michele Bachmann and Sarah Palin are actually viewed as serious candidates for the presidency! Two individuals who lack any knowledge of economics, foreign policy, jobs or what is required to create a viable society are hailed by Fox News as leaders of society. Rupert Murdoch and his son, James, declined an invitation from the British Parliament to explain the sordid behavior of their newspapers. Their chief assistant, Rebekah Brooks had to appear because she is a citizen of Great Britain.
Unfortunately, in America, these two criminals of honesty will never appear in a court. Fox News will continue convincing gullible Americans that Palin, Bachmann, Gingrich and other purveyors of distortion have ideas to help resolve our economic problems. of course, the simple solution is to flip the off switch on Fox News.
