ColorOfChange protesters picket Murdoch’s New York home
Activists from the African American civil rights organization ColorofChange.org gathered outside Rupert Murdoch’s apartment in New York on Thursday to protest against the “unethical journalistic practices” of Fox News.
“Rupert Murdoch will do anything for a profit, from dividing Americans through race-baiting on FOX News to phone-hacking in order to get viewers and sell newspapers,” Rashad Robinson, Executive Director of ColorOfChange, said in a statement. “We are standing up to say that we will no longer allow our communities to be attacked by a man more interested in profits than American values.”
The FBI launched a probe Thursday into allegations that employees of News Corporation, the parent company of Fox News and The Wall Street Journal, attempted to bribe police and hack the voicemails of American citizens.
