Not Surprisingly, Fox News Is Basically Ignoring The News Corp. Hacking Scandal

Or, if they do talk about it’s to assure that it’s really no big deal:

Doocey, your lack of credibility is showing.

    Bonus points for conflating victims of hacking with News Corp. which did the hacking.

  2. Ok, aside from the fact that hacking took place, what is the linkage between the Pentagon event and the News Corps bit? Or, for that matter, with the debt ceiling issue?

    Most unimpressive.

    And how many times did they say “piling on”?

    The cooks are putting a little extra special sugar in the kool-ade these days. Hopefully it’ll induce vomiting.

    Yes, the perfect companion to go with all the arrests…when will Rupert do the perp walk…

  5. Barb Hartwell says:

    When the scandal is in their court they want to hurry up and get over it. The same folks that are relentless when the shoes on the other foot.

  6. Nor, I would not, did they say “Well, the courts will decide Casey Anthony’s fate, so why pile on? After all, there a lot of other, much more important topics to discuss!!”

    You know who else is ignoring this? A guy who normally has some loudmouth opinion on everything. A guy who is a regular commenter here. A guy who makes a substantial portion of his income from Murdoch-owned HarperCollins.

    Some gutless asshole named Reynolds.

    Hate that guy. What a pussy.

  8. Franklin says:

    @michael reynolds: Ouch, that guy sounds like a loser. It starts at the top, after all.

  9. Dustin says:

    You have to appreciate Doocey snidely complaining that the media isn’t talking about really important issues like impending default, and then move straight into Casey Anthony.
