They taught the Americans most of what they know.
Fox's parent company is in deep doodoo.
News International, the stable of that Australian blight on the human race, Rupert Murdoch, has been discovered in Britain (courtesy of News of the World) to have tapped the phones of murder and terrorism victims and, now, soldiers killed in Afghanistan as well as a multitude of "celebrities" ("celebrated" primarily only because News of the World tapped their phones).
And Britain doesn't even have a Patriot Act that News of the World can use to justify these noxious intrusions.
Caught up in this are the British police who accepted bribes to feed News of the World titbits they thought the British public should know about for a fee in addition to the cost they already paid for actually running police activities.
The British PM was seen yesterday orgasmically venting fury in Parliament about stuff he had known about for years. And then, with a vehemence not seen in the British parliament since Blair promised his troth to George W Bush, he ordered the setting up of a Police enquiry to examine the corruption of .. er .. the Police.
And I thought the Americans were weird.
No matter. Rupert Murdoch is in the gun, primed, and about to be detonated. I must watch more Fox News for a minute-by-minute, blow-by-blow analysis and outcome of the enthralling saga about to unravel.
It could be another Casey Anthony drama of tragedic and comical proportions.
