Is this really hacking ? And it’s not a moot question once this gets into the courts..
If it’s unencripted conversation (coded) that goes over the public sirwaves abd is monitored, listened to, which anyone with the right equipment can do. Then it’s not being “hacked into” hence decoded, but monitored and in the US legal.

It’s not clear what Murdock’s people were doi9ng and of course the anti-democratic socialist forces are creating another revisionist straw hound to kick around.. But in a heartbeat would use it if they’re not doing so already

Your missing the point. Several, different 'hacks' occurred.

-Tampering with someones voice mail and deleting such messages, to gain more information on a subject[Hacked murdered girl's voicemail, parents thought she was still alive, because of said 'hack'

-Also, they listened in to cell phones, a crime in GB

-Paying police officers for information, a crime

“...in the US legal.”

No it is not.

Among other laws there is the “Electronic Communications Privacy Act” which forbids intercepting cell phone calls. That law even made it illegal to sell radios (scanners) that could receive a specific band of frequencies, which were the cell phone frequencies used at the time the law was passed.
