    to do with any of the exec's decisions will have their lives turned upside down if News Corp goes down.

    I care when anyone not involved in the decision-making process looses their job.

    However, I also care about whether heartless people like Murdoch get their comeuppance. Our government is supposed to be of the people, for the people, and by the people. Murdoch's vote (and money) should not count more than my vote. To me, that principle is a core liberal belief, too.

      hostage so the rules of hostage negotiation are in effect

    •  News Corp was not the only employer in town (0+ / 0-)

      Assuming most of these people are not recent hires, they went to work for News Corp when their were other choices.  It's not their fault Murdoch is a slime-bag, but they did ultimately choose to work for him, to help implement his twisted vision, so I guess I have mixed feelings about their fate now.

      Frankly, I blame everything on Nixon.
