Oh, and This Happened Too.

While everyone is in a tizzy after the President's press conference because either A) he nailed it, B) he schooled the Republicans or C) he sold out the liberal "base," this also came to light:

PWIRE: Journalists from across Rupert Murdoch's News International "repeatedly targeted" the former British prime minister Gordon Brown, "attempting to access his voicemail and obtaining information from his bank account, his legal file as well as his family's medical records," the Guardian reports.
"The sheer scale of the data assault on Brown is unusual, with evidence of attempts to obtain his legal, financial, tax, medical and police records as well as to listen to his voicemail. All of these incidents are linked to media organisations. In many cases, there is evidence of a link to News International."
Holy fuckballs! A Murdoch operation hacked the Prime Minister of England?! Is a world wide investigation to see if NewsCorp has tried this elsewhere the next step? In hindsight, it's no wonder they decided to fold NOTW so quickly. This may just be the tip of the iceberg.
