No Better way to put gag orders on the Media, phone hacking is the door to this eventuality, watch how they spin it into something else.

As the LA Times noted, convictions among News Corp employees could potentially endanger the company's broadcast licenses in the US and, as King's call for an FBI showed, endanger the company's reputation among once-loyal conservatives.

We can only hope.

Why would it endanger the rep among conservatives? As long as the media continues to be 'fair and balanced' as opposed to All lib spin all the time, people are going to keep watching.

Molenir, if you repeat 'fair and balanced' often enough, people start to believe it. America has become a country that prefers fantasy to reality, and Fox News gives it to them. If Fox is so 'fair and balanced', why is it the only news network that requires its employees to sign nondisclosure agreements?

All lib spin all the time

Name me one other media outlet that went to court to claim it has a right to distort the news and lie. Only FOX did this. Jane Akre case.

people are going to keep watching.

But only people who see "lib spin" everywhere while refusing to acknowledge that the Jane Akre case exists will believe.

Every organization requires employees to sign NDAs. Most of them deal with certain proprietary material. Fox is no different.

Sorry, but if you watch the news in the US, the lib spin is more then obvious. In fact, there have been studies done to back it up. One study, went through how many positive stories were broadcast about Obama before the 2008 election, on each network. And how many postive stories were broadcast about McCain. On Fox, it was about 50/50. In other words, about as many positive mentions, or stories about McCain, as Obama. On MSNBC it was more then 5/1. CNN 3 or 4/1. Thats what I mean by all lib spin all the time, and the reason why even the President is starting to use the term 'fair and balanced'.

Yes, just make things up.

No reputable news organization requires its journalists to sign NDAs. I wouldn't even call Faux a news organization. Clearly they have plenty of dirty laundry to hide regarding their internal practices -- hence the need for contracts prohibiting employees discussing that dirty laundry.

And who decides what constitutes a "positive story?" Some people are just so gullible to believe such "studies."
