Right wing lawbeaking Brits rewarded

An interesting story via Wired.com: Rupert Murdoch-employed reporters hacked into the voice mail of the royal family, various government officials and celebrities. After a half-hearted investigation by Scotland Yard, the reporters went to jail.

Then, in a stunning display of taking responsibility for one's own actions and avoiding lawsuit abuse, as the right continually pontificates about, they sued their employer for wrongful dismissal and collected big payouts.

Then, showing that (as they tell us about illegal aliens here) breaking the law simply cannot be tolerated, their boss, who encouraged the hacking, became the media advisor to Conservative Prime Minister David Cameron.

Fortunately, in this country, the Murdoch media empire is strictly non-partisan.

Apropos of recent events in Chicago

"The word ‘appeasement’ is not popular, but appeasement has its place in all policy."

"Appeasement from strength is magnanimous and noble and might be the surest and perhaps the only path to world peace."

What flaming, weak, cheese-eating surrender-monkey libtard would say something like that?
