Fox News Airs Murdoch-Friendly Banners During Phone-Hacking Testimony To Parliament

Reported by Ellen - July 20, 2011 -

Yesterday, Fox News aired the complete testimony of Rupert and James Murdoch to a Parliamentary inquiry into their role in the News Corp. phone-hacking scandal. There was a minimum of commentary from Fox. But the “fair and balanced” network made up for it with its distinctly Murdoch-friendly banners. A sample after the jump.

The banners, compiled in the video below, read:

James Murdoch: Company acted as swiftly as possible

James Murdoch: This is a matter of great regret

James Murdoch: We established group cooperating with police

Rupert Murdoch: I am more than prepared to testify

Rupert Murdoch: I was clearly misled

Rupert Murdoch: We have given all our knowledge to police

Rupert Murdoch: We were 100% cooperative with investigation

James Murdoch: This is a matter of huge, sincere regret

James Murdoch: Our company’s priority is to restore trust

These were just a sample of the banners that appeared throughout the Murdochs' appearance.
