In a recent interview with Russia Today, Afshin Rattansi, a Middle Eastern affairs journalist who’s appeared on the BBC, CNN and Bloomberg, said that he believes “Fox News is finished” if U.S. authorities can prove that News Corporation employees attempted to hack into the voicemails of terror attack victims killed on Sept. 11, 2001.

“The Democrats have nothing much to do, but they all hate one influential cable channel: Fox News,” he said. “I’m hearing, if the 9/11 victims have been hacked by subsidiaries of News Corp., then Fox News is finished.”
