Murdoch apologizes but says he’s not responsible for illegal activity within News Corp.


The actions of the man who attempted to hit media mogul Rupert Murdoch with a foam pie were despicable. Equally despicable is Murdoch’s denial of any responsibility as to the phone hacking, the bribing of police and other illegal activities that have taken place in his business. Blaming the problems on others and then saying that he’s the best person to fix the problem is absurd. Of course he wants to be the person in charge to “fix it.” The last thing Murdoch wants now is a deep investigation into financial records, office emails, notes and memoranda that could place him and his empire at even greater risk of “humbling” exposure.

Let’s hope that the British Parliament does not squander this chance to clean up this mess and dives into every nook and cranny within Murdoch’s empire. Watching the live hearings, I’m especially curious about the impact of the close relationships between government officials, the police and News Corp and how that all played out in the outcome of¬†elections and setting policy. No doubt, the result of these investigations will be a keen lesson for the rest of the world.
