    According to the magical Nexis machine, in the past week, Fox "news" has mentioned, on air, the horrific scandal involving dead children, soldiers, and terrorism victims, and its parent company, News Corp a grand total of just once, on Bret Baier's comedy hour of alleged news, and just to say that Rupert Murdoch's son is shutting down the News of the World because its employees bribed cops and hacked into phones of dead kids. The story lasted about 30 seconds.

    CNN has been all over the controversy, which has resulted in the arrest, among others, of a former official for David Cameron. MSNBC has at least spent a little time. But, as with most things, Fox viewers are blissfully unaware. (By the way, we're at the tip of the huge iceberg of awfulness involving one of the largest media companies in America and its CEO, who is, you know, a naturalized American. One would think that the American media would be all over this.)

    Synthia, you're painfully stupid.

    30 seconds is fair and balanced I suppose...

    Well lookie here Front page under World News Fox.com
    World - FoxNews.com
    They said it on Fox & Friends and in the next show called America's Newsroom and Bret Baier's show
    They talked about the arrests and them shutting down of the paper.
    Fox viewers are very much aware of it.
    Your link to a lefty bloger is wrong Synthaholic.

    No, that can't be right.... a left wing blogger has said so.... the left wing never lies. Only Fox do that. :lol::lol:

    So, now the question is.... how many hands does Synthia need to hold his ass now it's been handed to him? :lol:

    LOL, of course CNN would "be all over it". Its their one big chance to go after their biggest threat and the company that is beating them.

    And I know the OP/source link is full of shit, I've heard FoxNews mention the story a couple of times while listening to it yesterday. So I know they've talked about it more than "once".

    I don't know what kind of research your source does. I suspect Shoddy is the term most appropriate.

    I've seen stories aired on FOX in the Brett Bair show, Shephard Smith and on Fox and Friends if memory serves. I usually watch all of Brett Bair's show, about 10 minutes of Smith's show and Fox and Friends as I walk past it in the morning.

    I listen to news on the radio and NPR in snipets through the day driving around and I check headlines in papers on the internet and watch the local news.

    I have not seen this story reported in a featured way on any of these other outlets.

    My research like that of your source, is shoddy.
