Van Susteren Gets Around To Reporting News Corp. Phone Hacking Scandal – Briefly

Reported by Ellen - July 14, 2011 -

Near the end of On The Record last night (7/13/11), host Greta Van Susteren finally got around to reporting the News Corp phone hacking scandal engulfing the parent company of her employer. There were no guests and the brief segment aired about 50 minutes into the hour (after an interview with the Casey Anthony jury foreman) but this was the first mention of the scandal I’ve seen on Fox News prime time at all.

You can almost hear the behind-the-scenes discussions at Fox as producers and their higher-ups try to figure out how to handle the biggest scandal in the news that they’d rather not discuss at all. You can almost see them desperately searching for a way to blame Democrats, liberals and/or President Obama.
