To: Governor Andrew Cuomo

Special Murdoch Prosecutor

Whereas, it has become obvious the power of a media empire to corrupt all it touches (and it touches all spheres of public and private life), a fitting response in a republic is to assure the integrity of the findings of a thorough search of all relevant documents and testimony by appointing a Special Prosecutor in and for the State of New York in order that facts as honestly ascertained be candidly presented to a concerned citizenry.

Why is this important?

An attempt to inspire the sort of investigation which has proven invaluable whenever official channels be clogged with influence peddling and favoritism of the sort manifest in the UK (and not exactly unheard of on these shores). Specifically, the appointment of a Special Prosecutor to plumb the depths of News Corp, wherever the trail leads throughout the Murdoch realm.
