Rupert Murdoch tweets:
Public figures can parade their families, automobiles, books they've read, and lots of other things. It does not mean that they have therefore surrendered the going's on within their household.
So, if someone hacks into Rupert's cell phone or office computer and publicizes the results, that's ok because Rupert is definitely a public figure.
Good to know.
Rupert Murdoch should not be confused with Richard Mourdock, yet another "pubic" figure.
Seriously, he's been in the newspaper business for 50 to 60 years on several continents and he pretends not to know the law about public figures?
