This time he'll be carried in by a bunch of starving African children.

/They will serve a dual purpose of eating any pies before they reach him

He can't enter a place without being invited.

If that guy had white hair he'd look like the villain from Tomorrow Never Dies.

On the one hand, he's pretty far removed from the day to day operation of the business, and is pretty blameless as far as the tragic treatment of that family goes.

On the other hand, the buck has to stop somewhere, and as the head of the business, the responsibility for the actions of his subordinates falls upon him.

What happened was reprehensible, but let's not get carried away with the pitchforks. There are guilty parties, and much to the mob's chagrin, James Murdoch isn't really the monster he's made out to be.

Easy joke, but for some reason it always makes me laugh.

Don't know if you've been paying attention, but it was a lot more than one family. Phone-hacking was pretty much endemic throughout News Corps' biggest newsrag, if not the others, and the younger Murdoch was aware of it, according to recent testimony.

Of course, there's little doubt that the old bastard was aware of it as well, but they don't have anything to pin on him...yet.

^^^ I was aghast with amusement. That's gonna pop into my mind randomly for at least a week and cause awkward social explanations. Well done, sir.

On the other hand he *was* aware of the hacking, within a corporation he was an executive of, despite saying he wasn't.
