Rupert Murdoch's Slimy Reporters Strike Again!

Rubert Murdoch Reporters Spy Illegally

Even more news has come up regarding the Rubert Murdoch macabre of journalism.

It has become evident now that reporters for News International's Sunday Times and Sun spied on former Prime Minister Gordon Brown.

Everything from the Brit's bank account to family medical records were illegally obtained for the purpose of getting some 'good dish.'

Nick Davies and David Leigh from The Guardian have reported that Times, Sun, and News of the World reporters and their private investigators followed Brown ruthlessly for over a decade.

They used information collected to then report private details including the news of his son's cystic fibrosis.

This shady web has caused News Corp's stock to go down more than seven percent today.

Not only that, but the lawyers suing the company have updated their complaint, accusing the board of "willfully ignoring illicit news-gathering practices."

Murdoch has since made a couple of desperate PR moves, but we don't think anything can help at this point.

People never tend to forget when their privacy is invaded - especially for the purpose of something so seedy.

We've already filled you in on our opinion of this disgusting news, so we won't rant anymore.

Instead, what do U think of this?

That's a bit surprising.

Sienna Miller has settled her lawsuit against News Corp., owners of the British tabloid News of the World, in which she claimed that the company hacked into her cell phone to receive private information.

The tabloid allegedly hired a private investigator to listen to their calls.

Ewww! Totally shady!

Sienna will receive approximately $160,000 to drop the case.

News Corp. said in a statement:

"We are pleased that we have managed to bring this case to a satisfactory conclusion. Several weeks ago we admitted liability in certain cases and offered a genuine and unreserved apology. We hope to resolve other cases swiftly."

Guess money talk$. Not sure we would have done the same thing, Sienna.

Media Moguls' Salaries Going Up Once Again…

Filed under: Media MinuteDisneyBusiness Blitz

media moguls recent stats

Curious to hear which media moguls made mad money in the past couple of years?

Here are some recent yearly total compensation stats from the highest paid moguls in the entertainment industry:

-Disney's Bob Iger earned $28 million total in 2010

-Viacom's Philippe Dauman earned $84.5 million total in 2010

-CBS' Les Moonves earned $43.2 million in 2009

-News Corp's Rupert Murdoch earned $22.7 million in 2010

Certainly, there are some moguls who have taken paycuts for the sake of their companies, but the big guys here seem to be doing quite well for themselves…especially Philippe!

$84.5 million?!?!?!? It's good to be the President/CEO of Viacom!

What do U think of these salaries? Do U think these media moguls are getting paid what they deserve?
