Over the past four decades, Rupert Murdoch has bought himself a media empire that spans three continents—and in the process degraded the political discourse of at least three nations. Now revelations that News Corporation hacked into the phones of a murder victim and may have bribed police officers are showing just how low the Murdoch empire is willing to go to make a profit. 

On Russia Today’s The Alyona Show, The Nation‘s Katrina vanden Heuvel explains how News Corp. has imperiled democracy and what’s needed to re-establish a free, responsible media.
