One reply on “Is This The End For Rupert Murdoch?”

Rupert Murdock will not see a day of jail time. A "lesser" person would get 10 years, perhaps more. But America today does not have equal justice for all. Some are more equal than others. When I see our government jail the likes of Richard Scrushy (of HealthSouth) for falsifying company earnings — he says he didn't know it was happening <grin> — and the CEOs of Bank of America and Wells Fargo for robo-signing (they didn't know it was happening either <grin>) THEN I'll maybe start to believe that our government really tries to enforce equal justice for all.
