"Liberal media" loving the downfall of Rupert Murdoch
But most of them are overseas, specifically in the UK.
Yet, the "liberal media" are falling over themselves, probably in hope that Fox News will fall from its place as the leader of the news in the United States.
The Talking Points Memo provides a primer with lots of background information on the scandal here.
William Rivers Pitt, founder of Truthout (an independent media group discussed in the book), provides a minute by minute analysis of Murdoch's questioning by the British Parliament here.
And yet, this will NOT be the end of Fox News. As long as Americans are dumb enough to fall for their slogans of "Fair and Balanced" and "We Report: You Decide" there is no hope for an end to this media monstrosity.
It may be the end of Murdoch, but then he is 80 years old anyways and his family is well prepared to take over once he is gone from the scene. Here, take a look at what Murdoch owns: http://www.cjr.org/resources/?c=newscorp
