The problem is that there is only one pertinent blind eye at issue here and it will be the one the FCC has in any serious review of the applications, they don’t make those stamps of rubber for nothing.

Rebekah Brooks and Andy Coulson, two top editors at the now-defunct paper News of the World, have been indicted in the phone-hacking scandal that caused the paper’s shutdown and rocked Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp empire. Coulson, before stepping down last year, was actually the communications director for British Prime Minister David Cameron. Five News of the World journalists were also indicted.

Reading Dial M for Murdoch by Tom Watson and Martin Hickman gave me the same feel as watching the movie Apollo 13. I knew the ending. I knew some broad strokes. News of the World, a Murdoch paper, got caught hacking the phone of a missing girl, they got busted. Some cops were involved, News International got caught covering it up and decided to shut down News of the World. People were paid off, some Murdoch executives went to jail, some powerful political aids and police resigned and then Murdoch got a pie in the face while testifying.

In the wake of recent events concerning an ancient Australian who has become an international rogue, I cannot help but wonder which quote most accurately sums up his legacy:

It seems that the metastasizing scandal at Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp is finally having some repercussions on this side of the Atlantic, but naturally not in the way you’d think. Although ol’ Rupert himself confirmed this week that that he is “cooperating” with the US Department of “Justice” on the FCPA implications of the hacking/bribery/influence peddling outrages that have gripped Britain for months, this is the Holder Justice Department after all, so he’s not exactly quaking in his orthopedic loafers about that.

Its always heartbreaking when it comes time to take away Grandpa’s car keys; no one wants to do it, but after that little incident with the fire hydrant(s), we know it’s for his own good. Sadly, when the Grandpa in question is Rupert Murdoch, such potentially life-saving steps not only cannot be taken, but the heirs and hangers-on invariably do the opposite.
