The eyes of the world are on London today, where Rupert Murdoch is testifying before Parliament on his role as the puppeteer, er, chairman behind News International's (which operates in the U.S. as News Corp) shady dealings which allegedly range from hacking the phones of abductees and 9/11 victims to paying off British authorities for access to info and more.
