David A. Love: The only thing more remarkable than the news of the Rupert Murdoch hacking-bribery scandal itself is the rate of its unraveling – and Murdoch’s unraveling.
Denis Campbell: This brouhaha could be Murdoch’s Waterloo. Greed, arrogance, and omnipotent vanity are the disease. Brutal business strength is his greatest asset and his Achilles Heel. One perfect shot and everything falls down.
Carl Matthes: While Fox News still dominates cable news ratings, ol’ Roger wants something more: if he, personally, can’t be the 2012 Presidential Republican nominee, he wants to be the man who owns the 2012 nominee.
Jim Fuller: Day after day, Beck strides his set at Fox and rants, spit sometimes spraying from his mouth, his puffy face often growing red and his eyes crazily wide, waving his arms and looking and sounding more each week like somebody who is about to crack up before millions of viewers.
Jerry Drucker: The Tea Party People have GOP reign drops falling on their heads and most seem totally unaware how they’re being used.
Mike Price: Now, Murdoch claims to be an American. Clearly, he thinks so little of Australia that he’s willing to dilute his citizenship to your great country.
