Tom Watson, of the UK Labour Party, has written a book which calls the Murdoch empire a "shadow state"
Watson book calls Murdoch empire a "shadow state"
The book, entitled "Dial M For Murdoch: News Corporation and the Corruption of Britain", is co-authored by The Independent's Martin Hickman.
The book alleges that the Murdoch Empire used intimidation to ensure that the police, most of the media and many top politicians did not properly probe the phone hacking scandal that emerged in 2009.
According to Watson, "Fear allowed the phone hacking scandal to happen - fear of public humiliation for an indiscretion, fear of not winning that glowing endorsement."
Watson has described Murdoch's son James as "a mafia boss."
In the UK, Murdoch and his empire had close relationships with prime ministers, top government officials, and top police.
Scotland Yard's public affairs office employed 10 former Murdoch employees.
On 6th July 2011, Rupert Murdoch's media empire was accused by a UK Member of Parliament of being in 'the criminal underworld'.
Former UK government minister Tom Watson has referred to Murdoch media people's attempts to destroy incriminating email evidence held at a storage facility in Chennai, India.
"We know now that News International had entered the criminal underworld," Mr Watson told MPs.

The murder of Daniel Morgan was being investigated by Detective Chief Superintendent David Cook.
According to The Guardian, top Murdoch journalist Alex Marunchak reportedly agreed to carry out 'surveillance' on behalf of Jonathan Rees and Sid Fillery, the two people suspected of murdering Daniel Morgan.

The police see this as a possible attempt to pervert the course of justice.
The Guardian claims that surveillance of Detective Chief Superintendent David Cook involved Murdoch staff:
1. Following Cook and his children
2. Taking Cook's personal details from police databases.
3. Attempting to access the voicemail of Cook and his wife, and possibly trying to steal information from Cook's computer.

News of the World’s investigator, Glenn Mulcaire, got hold of:
Cook’s home address, his internal payroll number at the police, his date of birth, figures for the amount that he and his wife were paying for their mortgage, the mobile phone number for Cook’s wife and the password she used for her mobile phone account.
According to The Guardian, two vans, linked to Murdoch's media, were seen parked outside Cook’s house.
The vans followed Cook as he took his two-year-old son to nursery.
Murdoch's News of the World investigated Cook's private life.
Rees and Fillery, suspected of murdering Morgan, were eventually arrested.
But, charges against both Rees and Fillery were then dropped.
The suspicion is that Murdoch's men control elements of the police.

UK Member of Parliament Chris Bryant claims the UK Parliament has been 'systematically lied to' by the Murdoch people and a 'very dirty smell' also surrounds the police's handling of phone hacking inquiry.
Bryant told MPs: "Scandalously, it also seems that the News of the World targeted some of those police officers who were at various times in charge of the investigation into the News of the World itself...
"These ... are the immoral and almost certainly criminal deeds of an organisation that was appallingly led and had completely lost sight of any idea of decency or shared humanity..."
The Guardian has reported the news that relatives of victims of the 7 July 2005 attacks were targeted by Murdoch's News International, the BBC says that News International has uncovered emails showing that payments were made to the police by the paper when Andy Coulson was editor, apparently with Coulson's approval, and the Independent says that Rebekah Brooks personally commissioned a search for information by one of the investigators subsequently used to trace the family of Milly Dowler.
Alex Marunchak is a former senior executive editor of Rupert Murdoch's News of the World.
On 14th March 2011, BBC's Panorama programme claimed thatMarunchak paid a hacker to intercept emails from Ian Hurst, a British army intelligence officer.
Hurst wrote a book called Stakeknife which linked British intelligence to assassinations in Northern Ireland.

The BBC report that Marunchak was introduced to the hacker byJonathan Rees, who stood trial for the murder of Daniel Morgan. (PRIME MINISTER; MURDER; MURDOCH)
Daniel Morgan was murdered "because he was about to expose a drugs conspiracy linked to police corruption."
News International records reveal that Marunchak regularly employed Rees and that the News of the World paid Rees more than £4,000 for research relating to Stakeknife.
Rupert Murdoch, whose mother reportedly is Jewish, is linked to Fox News and many newspapers. The Board of Directors of Murdoch’s News Corp includes Andrew Knight of J. Rothschild Capital Management and Viet D. Dinh the chief architect of the USA PATRIOT Act.
Who owns the criminal justice system in your country?
Think of Lockerbie, and you might come to believe that in certain countries the criminal justice system is owned by the CIA and Mossad.
Rupert Murdoch is seen by some as being a friend of Israel and the Pentagon.
According to The Guardian newspaper, Rupert Murdoch journalists have been using private investigators to illegally hack into the mobile phone messages of top people in the UK.

Murdoch papers paid £1m to phone-hacking victims
Does Murdoch control elections?
What is most shocking is the reported behaviour of the UK criminal justice system.
1. Reportedly, the police did not alert all those whose phones were targeted.
2. Reportedly, the Crown Prosecution Service did not pursue all possible charges against Murdoch's News Group personnel.
More lies from a Murdoch paper?
And, reportedly, the Press Complaints Commission failed to uncover evidence of illegal activity.
Reportedly, Rupert Murdoch's 'News Group Newspapers' has paid out more than £1m to settle legal cases which threatened to reveal evidence of his journalists' repeated 'criminal' methods.
The payments 'secured secrecy' over out-of-court settlements.
According to The Guardian, Conservative leader David Cameron's former director of communications, Andy Coulson, was editor of the News of the World when the journalists were engaging in hundreds of apparently illegal acts
According to The Guardian, Murdoch executives appear to have misled a parliamentary select committee.
One 'senior source at the Metropolitan police' told the Guardian that police officers had found evidence of News Group staff using private investigators to hack into "thousands" of mobile phones.

During the buildup to the 2003 invasion of Iraq, all 175 Murdoch-owned newspapers worldwide editorialized in favor of the war.
Gaby Hinsliff in the guardian.co.uk, 23 July 2006, wrote (The PM, the mogul and the secret agenda):
"'I always took the view that Tony Blair's real Europe minister was (political editor of Murdoch's Sun newspaper) Trevor Kavanagh,' says Cook's then special adviser, David Clark...
"Murdoch's pro-American, pro-Israeli, pro-military intervention stance on the war on terrorism is faithfully reflected in Downing Street.
"His close associate Irwin Stelzer ...argued in an article last week that Israel must be allowed to 'finish the job' and attacked Iran and Syria for fuelling the conflict, a position Blair echoes publicly."

According to http://www.radioislam.org/m (Radio Islam: Who controls the British media?):
"Murdoch's mother E J Greene is from a Jewish family.
"Murdoch was able to build up his media empire with the financial backing of Jewish billionaires such as Oppenheimer (diamond cartel billionaire) and Rothschild (banking billionaire)."
Rupert Murdoch's Hidden Jewish Roots by Christopher Bollyn of American Free Press:
According to Richard H. Curtiss, editor of the Washington Report on Middle East Affairs, Murdoch “became an American citizen for business reasons...
“Rupert’s father, Sir Keith Murdoch, was a newspaper publisher, and his mother an Orthodox Jew, although Murdoch never offers that information in his biographies.”
Murdoch’s father married Elisabeth Joy Greene, daughter of Rupert Greene in 1928...
According to Candour (UK) magazine: “Rupert’s father Sir Keith Murdoch attained his prominent position in Australian society through a fortuitous marriage to the daughter of a wealthy Jewish family, née Elisabeth Joy Greene.
"Through his wife’s connections, Keith Murdoch was subsequently promoted from reporter to chairman of the British-owned newspaper where he worked.
"There was enough money to buy himself a knighthood of the British realm, two newspapers in Adelaide, South Australia, and a radio station in a faraway mining town... For some reason, Murdoch has always tried to hide the fact that his pious mother brought him up as a Jew.”
