News Corp. Trips Up Again With [Insert Adjective] Cartoon

Thu Jul 21, 2011 6:53am EDT

Rupert Murdoch has not made many friends in recent weeks given the phone-hacking scandal tainting his media empire.

A new editorial cartoon in the Times of London won't help matters.

There's not much to say about the cartoon -- it speaks for itself. One Murdoch publication is already guilty of morally and ethically bankrupt journalistic practices. Now another is trying to make those improprieties seem insignificant -- in, to use Rebekah Brooks' favorite word, abhorrent fashion.

Needless to say, response on Twitter has not been exactly favorable:

 

Disgraceful cartoon in the Times. What happened to editorial independence? (via@KathViner) t.co/9vGn5XB

 

HuffPostMedia: Is this cartoon about phone hacking in a Murdoch paper 'horrendous' or just misguided? 

EMMAGKELLER Emma Gilbey KellerAnyone else wondering if this cartoon from today's London Times is part of the Edelman strategy? yfrog.com/kezx9np
