Once the employers have to pay the newly legalized illegals a little more they will be seeking out new illegals to go back to paying slave labor wages. It will never end.
And contribute to an already escalating crime rate in inner cities controlled by Mexican gangs, in particular

Is this news to you? He and Mike Bloomberg have been pro-amnesty for years. They're part of some business group pushing it.

Does this tell you anything about Fox's interest in the welfare of their loving, trusting audience?

No, I already knew that both are illegal alien peddlers/profiteers. However, after watching his despicable pandering yesterday at the House Judiciary hearing, I thought it would be an interesting forum discussion.

When he was asked about the contradiction between his statements during the hearing, and the reporting on Fox News, he was quick to mention the WSJ. He has all angles covered, and will clearly support whatever is profitable. I have often wondered if the Fox viewers realize how hypocritical he is regarding illegal immigration.

If anyone is interested in viewing the hearing, click the following link. Have a barf bag handy.

Murdoch has ALWAYS played to both sides - this isn't news tbh. He has ALWAYS done what is expedient for himself and his interests.

It is interesting, especially regarding the reactions of anti-amnesty Fox zombies, ah, viewers. I wonder if many will wake up and start observing the many subtle and overt ways propaganda messages are delivered. Hope so. Great C-SPAN link!

law- abiding? I am stuck on just which laws illegals are abiding.
Lets examine these would be citizens.
1. Immigration laws are optional or for suckers.
2. Fraud is a way of life justified by personal desires.
3. Tax evasion is prefered it allows them to send more home.
4. Theft of emergency room services is normal because we some how owe them.
5. Driving without a license is acceptable. After all their needs out way public safety.
6. Auto insurance is optional, its a waste anyway when you don't even use a valid ID card.
Hmmmm yep no doubt about it. These folks are way better than all those people who apply to enter legally.

Yup, I"m kinda wondering how well I'd fare as a legal migrant if I decided to take on the same attitude. Bet the "rules" would be different if I was caught doing the same things they do.

Isn't it neat that that he has created entire TV channels all around the world to be sure his and other plutocrats' interests stay protected? Good thing nobody falls for it!

As I pointed out in a previous post on the first page, Murdoch has both sides covered. he has the right-wing covered with FNC and FBN, and he has the left-wing covered with 20th Century Fox that produces movies and TV shows. To him the Fox News market is just...another market

Murdoch personally has always tended to lean towards the conservative side (I think some may get confused that the "conservative" party in Australia is called the Liberal party) , but as I said that doesn't stop him supporting whichever serves his interests best at any given time.
