Rupert Murdoch and his son James, the tycoons who own British tabloids and Fox News, will be appearing next Tuesday in front of a committee of the British House of Commons about the phone-tapping scandal by their newspapers.

It is about time that the Murdochs answered for their poison press tactics that have changed the political discussion in Britain and our country. Phone hacking, bribes and the distortion of news seem to be the Murdoch way. And now the FBI is investigating whether News Corp. hacked into 9/11 victims’ cell phones.

Its about time that we learned what the Murdochs and the News Corp. are all about.
