Rupert Murdoch has done one of two things:
- Built a far-reaching multi-national criminal and espionage organization intentionally, or
- Been duped over and over again by malicious and unprincipled executives.
News America was led by Paul V. Carlucci, who, according to Forbes, used to show the sales staff the scene in “The Untouchables” in which Al Capone beats a man to death with a baseball bat. Mr. Emmel testified that Mr. Carlucci was clear about the guiding corporate philosophy.
According to Mr. Emmel’s testimony, Mr. Carlucci said that if there were employees uncomfortable with the company’s philosophy — “bed-wetting liberals in particular was the description he used” Mr. Emmelt testified — then he could arrange to have those employees “outplaced from the company.”
Either way, it's Murdoch's responsibility.
