UGH! Rupert Murdoch Facing New Scandals!

| Filed under: Tech TalkSad SadBusiness Blitz

New Murdoch Woes

Can't you get to the top WITHOUT getting dirty??

There are new reports coming out that get pretty technical, but they're no bueno none-the-less!

Apparently several news outlets have rolled out investigative projects targeting Rupert Murdoch and News Corp. Among them are Britain's BBC, the London Independent , and America's PBS!

All of them having super similar stories about bringing down rivals to Murdoch's Sky Italia satellite broadcasting company via smart-card hacking!

They claim that the News Corp software company NDS 'cracked the access codes used by ONdigital, the now-defunct satellite broadcaster owned by the then-ITV companies Granada and Carlton, for its settop receivers and then secretly funneled them to a website called The House of Ill Compute (THOIC).'

Pretty technical, right?

Well, both News Corp and NDS (which was acquired by Cisco Systems earlier this month for a measley $5 billion) have denied all the shenanigans.

That hasn't stopped Lee Gibling, the then-operator of THOIC, as he told that he was paid up to nearly $100,000 a year by Ray Adams, NDS's head of security.

Isn't there any honor left in business?

Any at all???

We'll see soon if all of this is true!!

    This world would be much better off if none of the Murdoch clan existed to begin with!

    News monopolies aren't good for the health of news. Look how consumers fled to alternate sources; people have a nose for truth. As for Mr. Murdoch's troubles…if you don't want chickens coming home to roost, don't lay those eggs.
