On last night’s Countdown with Keith Olbermann, a new twist to the News Corporation investigations emerged: the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is investigating Rupert Murdoch’s iPad newspaper “The Daily” for piloting a drone aircraft in the U.S. without a license.

“Rupert Murdoch has a drone!” Olbermann exclaimed, openly wondering what else might be possible with such technology.

“They could be rewired to intercept cell phones,” he said. “That’s a fascinating story and perfectly relevant with Murdoch.”
