Bring on the US investigations! Today, several people confessed in court to hacking computers on behalf of Coulson at News of the World. It's over. There have to be a half dozen cases of computer hacking done by NewsInternational titles. There is NO public interest defense for computer hacking. And there are cases of computer hacking by a NewsCorp division in the US buried under civil settlements. Que suave...Que RICO?

The good news for Murdoch is some of these hackers worked for competitors, too. Darn those Brits keeping those criminal cases sealed tighter than a drum. But now, we can beat them.

Phillip Campbell Smith. Convicted of conspiring to illegally access private information for profit. Again, the police were aware of this computer hacking years ago and did not act upon it. The intelligence officer who he hacked taped this man admitting to his work. Some of that tape was aired on BBC's Panorama a good while back, so here's more of the police having to rush to catch up to the criminals right under their noses.

Additonally, three other men and Smith plead guilty to conspiracy to commit fraud by illegaly obtaining confidential information Blagging, where by you pretend to be someone else to get informatiion over the phone. And glenn Mulcaire was in possession of copies of other's emails. It is such a freaking mess, I need an organizer to manage the data spill.

Obviously, I was in error to suggest several were convicted of computer hacking. Smith was. Three others and he plead guilty to Blagging. But then the Guard went on about all the OTHER computer hacking evidence. Just cleaning up my own mess, now.

Rupert Murdoch lacks the ethics to run a large corporation. He needs to go.

Since when were ethics required to run a corporation in this country?

"Look, I realize you yanks are the most gullible, globally naive simpletons on the planet. So when I got the opportunity to create a 'News" organization with right-wing propaganda minister Roger 'the hut' Ailes, I could not resist. My specialty is tabloid pseudo-journalism as I"ve practiced in the UK and Australia for years. And I've made millions. So I leaped at the chance to get my fangs in low brow tv brainwashed yanks, like yourselves. But alas, as I grow nearer to death I've decided to turn to Jesus and confess all my sins...."

Now *that* will be the ONLY thing newsworthy to come of of RM's mouth.

Who would build a network around the host of a program no one watched?

I must say, I admire The Judge's skill. Jon Stewart had him on the ropes with "the encumbancy of the wealthy," but the Judge analogized with just the story Jon could not turn down, and they went to Tequilatown on some minor detail in Texas.

But as The Judge is a JUDGE, he knows ommision is as bad as lying. He would never lie, maybe dodge, but I think they decided it was better to pull the plug while all this crime is pouring out of Britain. The business division was the only one to ask Murdoch about this mess in 2009. Murdoch slapped that poor guy down like a clown. This is a sad case of covering before the Judge can render an opinion.

Mockridge: "... will seize the opportunity to pull together and deliver a great new dawn"

Well, gee, golly, gosh, that there sure is a lot of blazing new hope for the people at Sun, and a lot of corporate buzz words slung together to mean something so vague and full of holes.

Good luck, Mockridge, in getting people to listen to you when you say absolutely nothing of importance.

I'm sorry, that just slipped out.

Murdoch's fortunes are built upon sensationalized headlines, page 3 girls & baseless reporting. His appeal is to the under-educated. The average Sun reader in Great Britain has a volcabulary of less than 300 words.

With a Page Three, what kind of vocabulary would you need?

I imagine with most Murdoch inspired drek, whether it's the Sun or Fox, it's more groaning and grunting going on with the poor Consumer that was fool enough to buy it.

Probably the most used Word though, from any person that happens upon a News Corp./News International/Fox Peddler? "Rubbish" followed by "Bullsh*t" in a near tie for 1st place.
