Hartmann: Hacking scandals threaten Murdoch’s media empire
On Monday night’s The Big Picture with progressive talk show host Thom Hartmann, Raw Story was invited to discuss the latest on the hacking scandals plaguing Rupert Murdoch’s media conglomerate in the U.K.
Though Hartmann suggests that Fox News or The Wall Street Journal could be next, where authorities will look for more malfesance next remains unclear.
But if U.S. authorities decide, as they appear obligated to, that the claims against News Corporation may fall under the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, Murdoch’s conservative media empire could face an investigation that would shake it to its very core.
