On both sides of the Atlantic the radical leftist media is really pushing this story to try and ruin Fox News and the more conservative press in London.

People need to understand that there is massive revulsion from the UK public at what it turns out these guys have been up to over the last few years. Yep, some lefty outfits are using this opportunity to stick the knife in - however
*every* moral person, regardless of their personal politics, should surely be horrified at the thought of a dead girl’s voicemail messages being read AND DELETED, giving her parents hope that she’s still alive, or the families of dead soldiers being targeted, or the victims of the UK’s 7/7 bombings being targeted... the list goes on and on.
Anyone that criticised the tabloids were targeted by journalists and PIs, including normal members of the public, the police and politicians. Bear in mind also that the Sun, who apparently were so strongly supportive of a “paedo tracking” law being created in the UK (similar to the one in the US, Megan’s Law IIRC?), have also in the past ran salivating features on 15 year old girls being lined up to show their chests on Page 3 when they finally hit age 16.
If that’s the message then I rather think that the messenger SHOULD be taken down!
It’s only now that the British public have finally found something that they can all agree is absolutely indefensible (not that some talking heads aren’t trying) that our fawning moronic government have suddenly found enough dutch courage to bite the hand that feeds - they know full well that there’s no hiding from this come election time, and about time too. Murdoch has been king-maker for far too long in the UK, and it’s high time that our politicians do what’s right for the country
instead of Murdoch’s business empire.
