Mo’Kelly was back on BBC Radio, this time to discuss the evolving News Corp.
scandal and the attempted “foam-plating” of Rupert Murdoch. The UK was curious to know how we were following the scandal stateside and whether we thought it would have repercussions for Murdoch personally and more broadly with his properties of Fox News, The Wall Street Journal and New York Post for starters.
As the corporation’s stock price has dropped more than 17% in the past two weeks, if the perception grows that the hacking practices are systemic in nature, not only is Murdoch (and his son as the eventual heir) done but the News Corp. empire could crumble…no exaggeration.

NY Post (and Newscorp.) Chairman Rupert Murdoch issued a statement of apology regarding the controversial cartoon depicting police officers shooting a chimpanzee last week.
As the Chairman of the New York Post, I am ultimately responsible for what is printed in its pages. The buck stops with me. Last week, we made a mistake. We ran a cartoon that offended many people. Today I want to personally apologize to any reader who felt offended, and even insulted.
Over the past couple of days, I have spoken to a number of people and I now better understand the hurt this cartoon has caused. At the same time, I have had conversations with Post editors about the situation and I can assure you – without a doubt – that the only intent of that cartoon was to mock a badly written piece of legislation. It was not meant to be racist, but unfortunately, it was interpreted by many as such.
We all hold the readers of the New York Post in high regard and I promise you that we will seek to be more attuned to the sensitivities of our community.
