Hacking the government from inside your own house is something most teenagers know not to do.

Rupert Marduk has been sacrificed. "Attacker" throws dish with polonium laced foam at Marduk's face.

Marduk got too greedy and knows too much.

Time for the old fart to wear his wooden suit.

Polonium Shave. Don't need a razor...ever again.

It's great watching these assholes starting to throw each other under the bus.  I'm sure there are a couple good guys left in the FBI and the judicial branch.

Double-decker, bitches!

Rupert Murdock, James Murdoch & News Corporation


Julian Assange


Bradley Manning



All are treated very (un)equally in our (non)system of justice and (dis)law.

*The Murdochs and many of their top execs would be at CIA black site 'detainment facilities' right now if not for the fact that they own so many legislators™.

I'm shocked, simply shocked, at having heard of any potential wrongdoing in the course of pursuing the highest standards of journalistic excellence.

You should throw shoes only at people who know how to duck ...like Bush Jr....else they might get hurt.

White plate with foam works nicely without causing physical injury. Eggs & tomatoes (learnt to spell this right from Quayle) also work well if not aimed at the eye.

Who cares a flying fuck?  Besides,  AAPL is on deck for earnings. All aboard the APPLE express.

may be time for an image of an even bigger bunch of media clowns, knaves and sharks sorrounding Murdoch to take him down Banzai

...take out Murdoch and what have you got left? ..an even sicker sack of shit ...let's work on thinking this through, because there isn't much evidence of thinking going on around here, everyone is swallowing their Guvmint Propaganda pills like good little zombies ...sheeple to the right, sheeple to the left, "Baaahhhhh"

Since when do you need permission to tap someone's phone? Silly English! Haven't they heard of the Patriot Act? Murdoch was just looking for Jihadist.

Reptil's picture

What I really don't understand is why they attempted to tap the Royal Family?
Messing around with the little people, ok, but eeeehhh.....

I still don't get what is the big deal. The government here listens into many phones, they even would attack a telecommunications provider does not agree to it. Why is it suddenly a scandal when somone else does it?

Since RIM blackberry, we all know they are 'open', don't we?

I still don't get what is the big deal- pcrs

pcrs; you need to realize that millions of dollars were paid to families of the victims killed on 9-11 to keep their mouths shut about the attacks. Some of them talked. They ended up dead. Coincidence? The probability is very low. The question is not whether Murdoch and his cronies should hang; no; the question is; How high?

>What I really don't understand is why they attempted to tap the Royal Family?

You've got to be kidding. The royal family is the core distraction, a pointless entity that all UK tabloid "journalism" is built on. Here we use Hollywood and hangers on like the Kardashians.  

Zero Govt's picture

the Royal Family are the Masons show-piece bling-bling gangsta family, Prince Phillip its hairy chested medallion man... the nice polite figure-heads of a nasty bunch of Masonic Lodge parasites (got to keep the good PR going when you're doing lots of ill)

..loose canon Dianas phone was tapped to ruin her reputation by the same media now raising a shitstorm (smokescreen) about phone hacking by Murdoch to take him down. It was 'A ok' as a method to take her down but not for Murdoch ...the hypocracy is kneck high in the snake pit, if you listen carefully you can hear them gurgling and drowning in it
