    It ain't about competition. It's about political agenda. CBS tried to influence a presidential election with forged documents but CNN never considered a "budding boycot movement' against CBS even though it was a competitor. CBS fired anchor Dan Rather and producer Mary Mapes and the whole incident was forgotton and Rather is still invited to the best parties. They aren't going to let Murdoch off the hook because they hate FOX.

    Australia is also trying to distance themselves from Murdoch and suggest investigating him.

    And he was origionally an Aussie.

    Yup, an aussie....I wonder what the other big owner...the muslim...feels about this all.

    Fox just sucks and I pray that entire organization gets shut down. Just like Acorn.

    Very interesting and kudos to you.

    Perhaps it is all the pent up anger from GE for being called a liberal media owner and defense contractor last decade making this rougher on Murdoch than the fall has to be. My toaster started telling me about Murdoch's evils lol.

    Yea, freedom of speech is a bitch when you disagree with what's said.

    Interesting that I've never seem a right winger want to close down any media outlet - no matter how much they lie.

    What's the difference between him and Soros, except that Soros donates to causes some don't like? You're just angry because Murdoch is getting hammered over things that are actual crimes, rather than Soros' imagined crimes, i.e. helping "lefty" organizations.

    They will soon take refuge in Chicago, sound familiar?
