Robert Greenwald Offers An American Perspective On News Corp.'s Phone Hacking Scandal

Reported by Ellen - July 12, 2011 -

Robert Greenwald discussed, among other things, the American implications of the News Corp. phone hacking scandal on The Ed Show Monday (7/11/11). My favorite line: "This is what happens when you have media consolidation. And I think we've all forgotten for a moment, Ed, how much extraordinary power one man has over all of our lives." Second favorite line, this one from Ed Schultz, noting how not one American employee of News Corp. has come forward to assure the public he or she has never engaged in such behavior: "The silence is deafening." Oh, and News Hounds got a shout out, too.
