The noose tightens on Fox Nation

The hacking scandal that imperils the Rupert Murdoch media conglomerate just won't go away.

The News of the World reporter who went to jail in the now-shuttered paper’s hacking scandal wrote in a 2007 letter that the illegal practice was “widely discussed” at editorial meetings and he conducted his hacking with “full knowledge and support” of his bosses, according to a bombshell report in the Guardian Tuesday.

And get this:

In a separate letter, the British law firm retained by News Corp. wrote that testimony given to Parliament in July by Rupert and James Murdoch was “hard to credit,” “self-serving” and “inaccurate and misleading,” according to the Guardian.

This is one that even the underhanded tactics of Roger Ailes may be beyond fixing.

Here's the Guardian link. I happened to read this good profile of Ailes in the Guardian while I was in London. I think it may have come from an earlier Rolling Stone piece, but still worth a read.
