"London (CNN) -- Global media tycoon Rupert Murdoch is not a "fit and proper person" to run a major international company, British lawmakers investigating phone hacking at his tabloid the News of the World reported Tuesday.

The ruling could prompt British regulators to force him to sell his controlling stake in British Sky Broadcasting, a significant part of his media empire.

If you can not rely on Faux News.. oh yeah that is right you can not.

Murdoch

It heard evidence from Mr Murdoch and his son James, and has now concluded that the notion that a hands-on proprietor like Rupert Murdoch had "no inkling" that wrongdoing was widespread at the News of the World was "simply not credible".

It noted that the newspaper mogul had "excellent powers of recall and grasp of detail when it suited him".


I think that in the early days of his publishing career, he was above reproach. but as he got older he let his son take over more and more of the day to day affairs of his business. Now of course that has come back to bite him, but you wouldn't expect him not to stand by his own son would you?

I think the sun may be finally setting on the Murdoch empire, and maybe for the common good of all in the long run.

Empire? No! Murduch? Maybe.

Way too much money at stake for the empire to be allowed to die.
