Some commentators have said the Murdoch thing is similar to Watergate. They're right, but for all the wrong reasons as usual.
What happened in Watergate: Nixon was a lot like JFK in most ways. Both were firmly anti-Soviet but also devoted to 'progressive' causes in America. Both enjoyed playing political dirty tricks, both recorded all conversations in the Oval Office. The difference: JFK was Popular, Nixon was a Nerd. Nixon made the mistake of assuming he could get away with the dirty tricks because JFK had done the same and more. Nope. You can only get away with shit if you're Popular. Nerds can't get away with anything.
What happened in the Murdoch scandal: Murdoch is a lot like all other media bigshots. Hardline leftist, wildly pro-fag, wildly pro-Gaia, super-hardline Wall Street. In other words, the heart of Gramscian darkness. All "journalists" have always
hated the truth with a purple passion, and all have always
used dirty tricks to acquire the vicious and bizarre lies they love to print. Murdoch thought he could get away with the same thing everybody else was getting away with. At this point I'm not sure what triggered the current piling-on. The hacking stuff isn't new; it's been openly discussed in British media for several years. Perhaps
a major speculator noticed a vulnerability in NewsCorp's share price and pulled strings to cash out his short with a maximum drop.
In both cases the result
is good though it happened for the wrong reasons. Nixon needed to go because he was serving the Left beautifully (affirmative action, environmentalism, abortion) while pretending to be a 'conservative'. Murdoch needed to go because he was serving the Left beautifully by running the false flag operation
of Fox News.
Sooner or later the Left will be sorry they forced Murdoch out, just as they have come to regret forcing Nixon out. Sooner or later they'll realize that False Flag Fox was doing them a great service. False Flag Fox constantly pushes 'conservatives' into absurd and counterproductive positions (eg ZERO TAX FOR BILLIONAIRES! ZERO TAX FOR BILLIONAIRES! ZERO TAX FOR BILLIONAIRES! ZERO TAX FOR BILLIONAIRES!) that are easy to mock and easy to defeat. False Flag Fox also colludes with the openly
Leftist parts of the media to violently silence all Nationalist and Populist sentiments.
