This Made My Day: Murdoch Threatened With Jail
Edited on Thu Jul-14-11 06:25 PM by kpete

A threat of imprisonment by parliament forced Rupert Murdoch and his son James to perform a volte face and agree to give evidence next week to a Commons committee investigating why News International executives provided false information to MPs.



the rest:

BUT WAIT THERE'S MORE!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Lawrence Ward, the deputy serjeant at arms, hand-delivered the summons to a lawyer at the News International headquarters at Wapping. A member of the select committee said at the time: "We have taken it to Defcon Two. Whether we go up another notch is up to the house. We have been advised that parliament could vote to imprison them."

2. I feel like I'm dreaming!
:applause:

I wonder why this is happening? He has had so much power for so long in Britain, it's hardly because of the hacking charges alone. They have been in the news there for several years and did not harm him very much.

10. I suspect you can't double talk the MP's like they do Congress here
and claim he was misunderstood or taken out of context or that's not what he meant.

13. I have been sick these past few days
Has anyone photo shopped the Queen's News of The World with the robot with the fox crew in his clutches? I hope this causes the end of Faux Noise.

16. Hopefully
Some of the next headlines read "Rupert Murdoch sent to jail", "News Corp declares bankruptcy" and "Roger Ailes implicated in hacking scandal, sentenced to 30 years in the penitentiary."
