Rupert Murdoch's Other Other Newspaper Invokes Starving African Children in Phone Hacking Cartoon

Newspapers owned by Rupert Murdoch and his friends just won't stop defending their master. Days after a Wall Street Journal editorial ran in defense News Corporation's handling of the UK hacking scandal, the Times of London comes today with the above political cartoon: "I've had a bellyful of phone-hacking," it reads under the headline "Priorities..." alluding to famine in Somalia. Which, okay sure, let's have a conversation about the media's obsession with itself, but maybe not while there's so much self-interest at play. As is, the "children are starving in Africa" defense rings mighty hollow. [via]
