The News of the World is part of the News Corp. family of Rupert Murdoch. It is to British print what "FOX and Friends" is to American TV.
It has been discovered that Murdoch's Brit tabloid had hacked and manipulated the cell phone messages of a kidnapped girl with the apparent goal of heightening the suspense of the kidnapping and prolonging the story after the girl had been murdered.
Of course it was hideous, vile, and obscene. Also very illegal. But what more can you expect from Rupert Murdoch and Friends.
And In New York
Another Murdoch paper, the New York Post may have libeled the victim in the Strauss-Kahn rape case in a depraved attempt to boost sales.
Forget the quaint concept of Yellow Journalism. Murdoch journalism is shit brown.
