Vyan at Daily Kos is getting giddy in a post headlined Could we soon see a world without Fox News? It's apparently all over for FNC: "In less than a week the News of the World Wiretapping and Bribery Scandal has quickly metastasized into a Multi-Headed Dragon of Death for Murdoch Empire and simply lopping off one head, doesn't seem to be enough - the infection has already spread."
Now that Fox-hating liberal interest groups, bloggers, and Democrat politicians are vowing to investigate, the Kosmonauts think Murdoch's "criminal enterprise" is about to collapse:
With the current head of the Murdoch's Wall Street Journal caught directly in this scandal - it won't be long before they start shedding those assets as well, and yes, Fox News too - as it's been obvious for a long time they are a Criminal Enterprise just like the rest of his media empire. Possibly one of the worst since Murdoch didn't buy them as an existing enterprise - He built it from the Ground Up, which means the rot has always been part of it's core.
The topic also came up on Tuesday's Thom Hartmann show, where a Washington liberal had to tell Hartmann to calm down with the Mafia metaphors for Murdoch Incorporated:

They’re gonna be so disappointed
Are they horrible?
You know, I don’t agree with Daily Kos or DU, but I would never want a world where they could be shut down. That’s a tyranny, and it is the vilest of governments.
Doesn’t matter. There will always be someone, something, that counters the hate and fear of the left..
these are the same lunatic leftists who were so sure karl rove was going to be frog marched out of the White House over plamegate...remember the lunatics, “karl rove has been given 24 hours to get his affairs in order before prosecutors come calling”??? sissy matthews was giddy over the “news”...
Liberals are good at telling themselves fairy stories.
This is yet another.
If they aren’t careful, FOX will stop playing softball and undertake some serious investigative journalism of multiple targets.
They’ll have to prove the other organizations engaged in the illegal wire tapping. Otherwise the investigators will waste a little time and then go away.
And if Fox does fall, conservatives will find someone else to give them unbiased reporting.
While it would be a travesty to lose FoxNews as a matter of First Amendment Rights - something worth fighting against... The Conservative Message to the USA will not falter. A major reason is that FoxNews has become so Politically Correct in the past year or so that they are scarcely better than CNN. The other reasons are places like Freerepublic.com, a thousand Conservative blogs, tens of thousands of Conservatives on FaceBook, and thousands of Conservative Internet groups on Yahoo.com, Google.com and elsewhere... not to mention millions of personal emails. Then we have Conservative Talk Radio which will grow exponentially if FoxNews is shut down. Such a happening might even allow millions more to hear Mark Levin and get non politically correct news.
The government should never get into a fight with a newsman who buys ink by the barrelfull.
Obama has hid his true background.
Don’t for a moment think that Murdoch won’t tell the truth about Obama to save his business.
Exactly. Right about the time they think they have us silenced up pops another alternative to the LeftStreamMedia. Boy won’t that stick in their craw!
Me either because they would be continually trying to barge into to this forum and the ZOTS would be coming in like a bad T-Storm!
If DU and the Daily Kos were gone, I’d have no place to spew venom at the hated libs....It’s a target rich environment.
(Not only that, I’ve been banned everywhere else.)
This is where the conservatives can learn something for liberals.
How do you stop an investigation? You investigate the AG and make the justice department worthless. They did that to Bush for 8 years while they ran around stealing from the people.
Keep attacking Holder. Keep him under constant pressure. Do that and this story will die at the shoreline.
Man, those leftists are so weird. They have orgasms over the strangest things.
“Liberals are good at telling themselves fairy stories.”
It’s because most liberals are fairies.
The goal of every lib is to have ZERO dissent...or else face a firing squad.
Morons. They’re gonna have to go all the way if they want to silence all opposition.
