Keeping up with the Murdochs

By Christopher B. Daly 

Now, British authorities are saying they plan to bring bribery charges against former top-ranking editors in the Murdoch media empire.

I’m confused: I thought these people were so intimidating and tight with the powers that be in Britain that they would not have to pay for anything. Sheesh.

Paying is so tacky.

No matter. Somehow, the troubles in Britain seem to have done little to slow down the News Corp. juggernaut. The Times says Murdoch (still never convicted of a felony in the U.S.) is shopping for new companies to acquire.

Now that the U.S. election is over, maybe we will be hearing from the Justice Dept about the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act.

    You write, “Now that the U.S. election is over, maybe we will be hearing from the Justice Dept about the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act.”

    Wouldn’t it be great if the world worked that way, if bad guys who obviously have been up to no good got investigated by the authorities. But I don’t recommend that anyone hold his breath till the Justice Department gets around to looking into the doings of the Murdochs and News Corp. Sorry.
