Murdoch Scandal Hits Home: FBI Launches Investigation Of News Corp

The FBI has launched an investigation into Fox News parent News Corp, looking for evidence that the rightwing news organization may have hacked into the cell phones of 9/11 victims and family members. The inquiry apparently comes at the demand of wingnut Rep. Peter King (R-NY). The FBI has declined to comment on the investigation. According to the British press, Murdoch's organization asked a private detective to hack into the voice mail archives of UK citizens killed at the World Trade Center.
