Today, Melanie appeared on the Thom Hartmann radio program, to discuss the News Corp. hacking controversy, Rupert Murdoch's influence and the effect FOX News has on politics in the United States.
…we should also be very concerned about whether politicians here in the United States, like in Britain, have been afraid to criticize Murdoch because of what he might have on them or what he might do. And I do think we see politicians having a fear. You don't see politicians in America very frequently taking on FOX, taking on Rupert Murdoch, they are remarkably quiet even in the face of terrible thing, un-true things, FOX broadcasts.
