This video of Fox News host Steve Doocy ineptly attempting to clean Rupert Murdoch has been making the rounds. I think the most amazing portion of this alleged act of journalism is when the guest asserts:
We know its a hacking scandal. Shouldn't we get beyond it and deal with the issue of hacking?
One can imagine Ayman Al-Zawahiri asserting, by similar logic, that we should get beyond 9/11 and deal with the issue of terrorism.
It's worth remembering that this is a scandal that's closed a newspaper, taken down the head of Scotland Yard, and put one of the most powerful editors in England in bracelets.
Fallows has some background on the entire episode. Given what happened with Milly Dowler, it's this is utterly classless.
