Keith Olbermann Details How Rupert Murdoch Blackmailed Him

E-mail Print PDF

Olbermann pointed out that Rupert’s crew will do anything to you to get you to do what they want. He speculated that this is why nobody whistle blows on Fox News and News Corp. Until Keith Olbermann brought it up, I had never really thought about why so very few former Fox employees talk about their time at News Corp after they leave.

I have always thought that part of the reason for the silence was that there are very few television jobs available. Most people aren’t as lucky as Keith Olbermann. They don’t have the ability to do both news and sports. Jobs are scarce, so don’t go burning your bridges. It does seem to be the case that many in the media are rightfully afraid to cross News Corp. The culture there seems intent on destroying all enemies, real or imagined.

The revelations are coming fast and furious. Each new detail from the across the pond creates another crack in the News Corp armor. The News of The World Scandal has it all, corporate corruption, media corruption, and law enforcement corruption. This story is not going away, and if the company wants to stop the financial bleeding they may have to dump Rupert Murdoch.
