An article currently appearing on Fox 19 in Cincinnati asks if the media is fairly covering the Ruppert Murdoch hacking scandal. After giving a vague background on the story, they go to their analysis:
In the great scheme of things,"News of the World" is pretty immaterial to News Corp.'s earnings, in the one percent range. As one analyst said "whatever happens there is a flea on the back of an elephant,"
Where that flea becomes a bigger problem, when media entities like Fox news, which are owned by News Corp, barely cover the scandal.
The left leaning site Media Matters tracked the number of times the three cable networks covered the scandal between July 4th and July 17. This was when the scandal first broke.
CNN covered it the most, 107 times. Compare that to Fox news which ran only 30 stories.
