In 1998, a reporter at the Cincinnati Enquirer, Michael Gallagher, wrote an 18 page exposé on Chiquita Brands International and its corporate goings on in Central America. The report sourced phone calls leaked to the newspaper.

In fact, Gallagher had illegally tapped into Chiquita’s phone system.

In 2010, NBC’s parent company General Electric paid a $23.5 million settlement to the SEC on allegations that its subsidiaries bribed Iraqi officials to win UN contracts.

In neither case was Gannett, the parent of the Cincinnati Enquirer, or GE hauled before Congress with its CEO sworn in to answer questions about their conduct. In neither case did media sensationalize what was going on.

Does anyone think tabloids got lucky with Senator John Edwards? The tabloid knew which floor and room number Johnny was meeting with Rielle Hunter.

What about Media Matters? Media Matters claimed they received FOX News emails and supposedly talked with Fox executives yet they’ve never produced one witness nor a witness with his face and voice concealed. Fox has been hacked and MSNBC discussed the story on several evening shows including Christy Matthews and Ed Schultz;s show. What did they know and when?

Republicans should insist on investigations into GE, Gannett, the tabloids and Media Matters. Lets clean house or simply utilize the courts and let congress focus on fiscal matters. You can't tell that to dems who fixated on sports steroids issues who also can't debate the media unless the host softballs the questions. I'd rather see the courts settle it but with the wacky investigate everything that both sides insist on, we'll they must remember every lead discovered by federal investigators must be disclosed and prosecuted if possible.

This scandal have a mild affect on Newscorp US operations, even the alleged phone hacking of a 9/11 victim has been discussed but no one has produced proof. We’ll see what they produce before condemning anyone.

Liberals prefer to convict first then prove the facts with sometimes flimsy evidence, its more about promoting hatred and lies than truth so some will ignore other media outlets. What liberals have done is call attention to things lefties have done that they’d just as soon forget. Paybacks a bitch.

MSNBC backed off the lies about Newcorp today, in fact coverage this evening excluded Newcorp coverage. Comcast bought a lemon, can they make lemonade with it?

How quickly do criminals react once they get access to an online account?...

How hackers handle stolen login data
Mon, 17 Oct 2016 - If your personal data gets stolen, how long do you have before the criminals come calling?


We've all had them. Those emails you read with a growing sense of dread which tell you to change the password you use on this account, that social network or one of the many other online services you use. Those emails are common given that almost one billion login credentials have been stolen and shared online in the last year. Yahoo, MySpace, LinkedIn, Dropbox and Tumblr, have all been hit and the list goes on and on. The worst part is the uncertainty that comes in the wake of the warning - do you panic now or later? Computer scientist Jeremiah Onaolapo and colleagues from University College London decided to find out how quickly criminals react once they get access to an online account.

The team set up 100 Gmail accounts and then accidentally-on-purpose shared their login credentials on forums and sites that data traders are known to frequent. The accounts were made to look "live" by having message threads, alerts and updates flow through them. They were also surreptitiously locked down to limit abuse. Mr Onaolapo was sure the webmail accounts would be tempting because of the way people use them. More often than not, he said, they have data from other accounts, such as bank details, passing through them. "It's information that can be used for ID theft," he said.

Quiet period

They did indeed prove tempting. By the end of the study, 90 of the accounts had been visited by people who were not their rightful owner. "Judging by the activity on the accounts, I would say that the majority of the visitors did not know they were faked," he said.

Staying secure

* Use two-factor authentication where possible
* Use a sentence or a string of random words as a password
* Do not re-use passwords across sites or services
* Consider using a password manager for all your accounts
* Change the default passwords on gadgets you own
* Regularly check where account activity originates
