Murdoch's Faux News Corp Takeover of WSJ

Olbermann and Rachel Maddow discuss the takeover of the Wall Street Journal and its possible implications.

They actually even discuss the lawsuit filed against News Corp by 2 Fox News employees that had been fired for refusing to distort a story and Fox News succesfully argued in court that they had a 1st amendment right to lie in their news coverage.

Fox News argued and won in court the right for a news corp to lie and call it news.

Daily Kos:
In February 2003, a Florida Court of Appeals unanimously agreed with an assertion by FOX News that there is no rule against distorting or falsifying the news in the United States.
Faux News indeed.
