I try to not have schadenfraude. Really, I do. I don't watch or laugh at "AFV" or when horrible accidents happen to people. But when you're a piece of filth and you get called on the carpet by the Houses of Parliament, I'm beside myself.
Next Tuesday I'm getting up super early and gonna be a media hound to hear what ol' Rupie, James and Rebekah Brooks have to say for themselves. If it weren't so damn early I'd throw a party so we could heckle and cheer from my sitting room.
And it gets better- the FBI is investigating Murdoch's minions for hacking the phones of 9/11 victims, AND for giving $1 MILLION bucks to the US Chamber of Commerce:
"News Corporation contributed $1m to the US Chamber of Commerce last summer. In October the chamber put forward a six-point programme for amending the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, or FCPA, a law that punishes US-based companies for engaging in the bribery of foreign officials."- (from the Guardian UK- http://www.guardian.co.uk/media/2011/jul/14/hacking-murdoch-paid-us-lobbyists )
We citizens who've been awake for the past few years have been bitching about the USCoC for a long time. This is almost better than sex. I could cry. There is hope.
In my head and heart I'm doing the Snoopy dance.
The Door Is Ajar.
