Rupert Murdoch`s promise

Mudlock has promised that "He will do everything in his power to prevent another phone hacking scandal"
Is it just me or do I cynically understand that differently to the way it is being portrayed?

Re: Rupert Murdoch`s promise

I didn't realize that since 14th July the FBI are investigating his newspapers' antics,

I would cynically think you are not being anymore cynical than Rupert M!

Quote:
Jim Riches, a former deputy chief in the New York Fire Department whose 29-year-old fireman son was killed in the 9/11 attacks had also been among those calling for an investigation.
“Someone should look into it to see if their rights were violated – the family members I’ve talked to are appalled, they’re disgruntled, they have to relive the pain all over again,” he had said.
“I think they crossed the line. They’re trying to get messages from loved ones in the last moments of their lives. It’s horrible, and they should be held accountable. It’s despicable and unethical.”
