Hosted by

Is Rupert Murdoch Unfit to Broadcast?The British police and the US Justice Department are investigating the way Rupert Murdoch has conducted an empire that spans the world of communications media. But a majority of a committee of Britain's parliament has already acknowledged his "willful blindness" and concluded he's "not a fit person" to lead a major international company. We look at his problems and his influence on journalism worldwide.
