Protest News Corp. Phone Hacking Outside Rupert Murdoch's NYC Home Thursday

Reported by Ellen - July 14, 2011 -

ColorOfChange.org will lead a protest outside the New York City home of News Corp. head Rupert Murdoch Thursday at 12:30 PM ET. Gather on the sidewalk across the street from 834 5th Avenue. My research indicates that's between 64th and 65th Streets.

ColorOfChange says in its press release about the protest:

The African American civil rights organization, ColorofChange.org, will lead a protest outside the home of embattled News Corp CEO Rupert Murdoch this Thursday at 12:30 pm EST, joining the call for a Congressional investigation. Murdoch, who’s FOX News has long been criticized for race-baiting and unethical journalistic practices, is in the midst of afirestorm over charges of phone-hacking and corruption.

“Rupert Murdoch will do anything for a profit, from dividing Americans through race-baiting on FOX News to phone-hacking in order to get viewers and sell newspapers,” said Rashad Robinson, Executive Director of ColorOfChange. “We are standing up to say that we will no longer allow our communities to be attacked by a man more interested in profits than American values.”

Wish I could be there.
