Quote of the Day

"It makes perfect sense that it's News Corp. that finds itself at the center of this galloping controversy because, quite frankly, it's inconceivable that any other global media company would ever allow its employees to consistently misbehave the way Murdoch allows his lieutenants to skirt common sense rules."—Eric Boehlert, in a must-read piece on the unfolding News Corp phone-hacking scandal.

Meanwhile, the Associated Press is reporting: "The FBI has opened an investigation into allegations that media mogul Rupert Murdoch's News Corp. sought to hack into the phones of Sept. 11 victims, a law enforcement official said Thursday."

Big news, that.
