Hacking murdered children’s phones, paying off police, destroying evidence of crimes, threatening politicians — UK leaders say Rupert Murdoch’s empire has “entered the criminal underworld”. For decades, Murdoch has ruled with impunity — making and breaking governments with his vast media holdings and scaring opponents into silence, but we’re fighting back, and winning!
