The lies and propaganda that Fox "News" spreads needs to be checked. For example Bill O'Reily and his minion Megyn Kelly stating that the spray used at UC Davis is a "food product" is misleading (of course) I suggest we have an "Occupy FAUX NEWS" at EVERY AFFILIATE they have here in the USA!!! Here's the link and video:

Murdoch's empire includes Fox "mews" and The New York Post. These are legitimate targets of OW protests, especially considering the law that Newscorp has violated (Foreign Corrupt Practices Act.- FCPA) is not being enforced. http://www.fool.com/investing/general/2011/07/13/rupert-murdochs-never-ending-headache.aspx Rupert Murdoch's Never-Ending Headache ARTICLE PREVIEW — For full access, register below, it's free By Jonathan Berr | More Articles July 13, 2011 | Comments (1)

News Corp.'s (NYSE: NWS ) decision to repurchase $5 billion worth of the media conglomerate's shares, which have been tanking amid rancor over the News of the World phone-hacking scandal, is like giving a Band-Aid to someone who has just been stabbed. While the gesture would be appreciated, it is grossly insufficient, particularly if U.S. regulators launch an investigation under the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act.

The accusations In a nutshell, the FCPA makes it illegal for U.S. companies to pay bribes overseas to win business. According to legal experts, the Securities and Exchange Commission and the U.S. Department of Justice may investigate New York-based News Corp. for possible FCPA violations.

News Corp. Chairman Rupert Murdoch and other members of senior management could face legal liability if it can be proved that they knew about illegal conduct but failed to stop it, according to Mike Koehler, an assistant professor of business law at Butler University who edits an FCPA blog. He added that just because a company faces scrutiny, that doesn't mean its executives will as well.
