Rockefeller's statement is the harbinger of corporate death. Every time a real reporter is within shouting distance of Murdoch, the questions will be asked

"Mr. Murdoch, sir:"

Did you hack the phones or other media of 9/11 victims?

How many?

What possessed you to do that?

How many other invasions of privacy have the foot soldiers for your media empire conducted?

Is anyone safe from the spying of News Corporation?

Murdoch's answers matter less than the fact that Senator Rockefeller's statement opens the door to devastating inquiries.  Increasingly, Murdoch will be seen as a toxic entity, someone requiring great distance, a Uriah Heep of the corporate elite.  He's simply not bankable anymore or fit for civil company.

But at long last, Murdoch has no shame.  That requires a moral center, a set of beliefs consistent with the importance and integrity of civil discourse and governance.

Murdoch has inflicted great pain on the world and never flinched, never apologized.  He is, after all, the owner of Fox News.  Murdoch worked hand in hand with former President George W. Bush to justify the invasion of Iraq.  Many  who believe Saddam Hussein was behind the 9/11 attack s got that information from the drumbeat of misinformation provided by Murdoch's US media outlets.

The war cost lives, caused suffering, and has a lot to do with bankrupting the nation.  It also cost the lives of a million Iraqi civilians who died in the civil strife directly caused by the war.

Murdoch never apologized for his central role of supporting the Iraq invasion or for the needless death and carnage that followed.  Why would he apologize for hacking phones to invade the lives of innocent citizens caught in a big news story or those at the top of society and politics.   His character is now his destiny.
