News (not) Corp

The ceo of news (not) corporation,  the parent company of flox (fox(  news, one mr. rupert murdock has spent at least the  last 20 years spreading misinformation and outright lies, about progressive ideas, in Europe and amerika.
He  is in a bit of trouble with the Federal Communication Commission.  FCC.
Seams wire tapping phone calls is only allowed if you petition the federal court, for permission to do so,  and they just don't have no record of rubert asking.

Credo Action has posted a interesting petition to have news (not) corporation broadcast license removed. Here it is...

Subject: Tell the FCC: Enforce the law. Revoke the broadcast licenses held by Rupert Murdoch's media empire.
Dear Friend,

FOX News' parent company, News Corporation, is embroiled in a phone hacking scandal that has shone a spotlight on the detestable practices its owner, Rupert Murdoch, promotes as journalism.

The ever-growing scandal has shut down one newspaper, led to multiple arrests and numerous resignations in the UK, and an FBI investigation into allegations that News Corp. staff may have sought to hack the voicemail of victims of 9/11 and their families in the US.

And now a committee in the UK parliament has issued a report blasting both Rupert Murdoch and his son James (also an executive at News Corp.) for their complicity in the scandal, concluding that Rupert Murdoch is "not a fit person to exercise stewardship of a major international company."

It's time for the FCC to take action. The law requires that the FCC consider the "character" of media owners when deciding whether to grant, deny or revoke a broadcast license.

I just signed a petition telling the FCC to enforce the law and revoke the broadcast licenses held by Rupert Murdoch's media empire.

I hope you do, too. You can find out more information and easily sign the petition at the link below.


 The link should work. Sign the petition Credo is a valid movement and they will not spread your e mail address around.
They actually caused rush lim-baa to loose almost all of his sponsors. Sadly he still has a radio voice.

Support Public Broadcasting. I do!
