"For decades, Rupert Murdoch has been the most powerful media mogul on earth anointing, manipulating and intimidating political leaders across the globe, including U.S. presidents. "Headquartered in the U.S., Murdochs News Corp. owns dozens of American outlets including Fox News, Fox Broadcasting, Wall Street Journal and New York Post. His outlets are powerful opinion-shapers; no one pushed harder for the Iraq invasion than Murdoch and his media. "A British Parliamentary committee recently declared Rupert Murdoch not a fit person to run a major company. The committee found that Murdoch had turned a blind eye and exhibited willful blindness while his London newspapers massively hacked into private citizens phones and computers and bribed police officials. "When a U.S. company bribes foreign officials, it violates the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act. "Lets urge the U.S. Senate to investigate and hold public hearings on the corrupt practices of Murdoch and News Corp. "For almost a year, while this scandal involving a U.S. company dominated the news in England, our Congress looked away. Weeks ago, the British attorney whose lawsuits broke open the scandal alleged that Murdochs journalists committed the crime of phone-hacking against victims in the U.S. "The Senate Commerce Committee has oversight of American business and the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). While British broadcast regulators today investigate whether Murdoch is fit to hold a broadcast license in England, the American FCC shows no interest in Murdochs fitness to possess 27 U.S. TV licenses. "Urge Senate Commerce Committee Chair Jay Rockefeller (D-W.V.) to initiate an investigation of News Corp. corruption and law-breaking. "After it starts investigating News Corp., we will urge the committee to probe why the FCC has taken our public property the broadcast airwaves and turned them over, for free, to a handful of giant conglomerates (Murdoch, Disney, General Electric, Comcast, etc.) "Please forward this email to friends and family. Its time we occupy the airwaves." Onward, The RootsAction team If you agree, write you senator.
