Reuters) – Astronomers have spotted an exotic planet that seems to be made of diamond racing around a tiny star in our galactic backyard.

The new planet is far denser than any other known so far and consists largely of carbon. Because it is so dense, scientists calculate the carbon must be crystalline, so a large part of this strange world will effectively be diamond.

“The evolutionary history and amazing density of the planet all suggest it is comprised of carbon — i.e.,  a massive diamond orbiting a neutron star every two hours in an orbit so tight it would fit inside our own Sun,” said Matthew Bailes of Swinburne University of Technology in Melbourne.

The hearings are live right now on MSNBC and we have seen the photos of Rupert pallling around with Rebecca who ran News of the World which makes up one percent of his holdings he claims he did not know that in 2003 she pleaded guilty to knowing about phone hacking. 

Murdoch ‘I was clearly misled” whoa, why? You were the boss that the stockholders have said used his corporation as a candy jar.  His own daughter runs TV productions such as “Masterchef” and much more. 

Murdoch is completely out of the loop on blackmail charges and t he like.  He said he had a zero tolerance policy about wrong doing of his employees.  Either he is a bad liar, bad CEO one who ow ns all kinds of newspapers KNOWS NOTHING ABOUT HIS OWN PEOPLE WHO MADE THE NEWS FOR WRONG doing!!! WTF? Dude you think we are buying this horsecrap? 

Who said that bloggers and blogging would not amount to anything? After the fall of the house of Murdoch who’s next? Who will be left? Bloggers!!!

The website of British tabloid The Sun has been hacked by internet pranksters.

The homepage of the News International newspaper has been replaced with a story announcing the false death of Rupert Murdoch.

The hoax story said the Australian media mogul had been found dead in his garden after an overdose of palladium, a poisonous chemical.

“Officers on the scene report a broken glass, a box of vintage wine, and what seems to be a family album strewn across the floor, containing images from days gone by; some containing handpainted portraits of Murdoch in his early days, donning a top hat and monocle,” the story read.

Whistleblower Found Dead

A show-business reporter who was the first journalist to allege that News of the World editor Andy Coulson was aware of phone-hacking at his tabloid has been found dead, according to The Guardian, in circumstances that U.K. police deem “unexplained” but “not suspicious.” Sean Hoare worked at the News of the World as well as at another Murdoch tabloid, The Sun, until he was dismissed for drug and alcohol problems. Police won’t confirm his identity, but The Guardian reports that Hoare was found at his property and pronounced dead shortly after.

Deadly Shooting in Yuma, AZ 5 dead 1 was attorney

The shooter apparently took his own life, the Sun reported.

Yuma police spokesman Clint Norred told the Sun that the shootings were connected.

Four fatalities took place in the county and the fifth person was killed inside Yuma, a city of 91,000 along the Colorado River.

The downtown Yuma victim was attorney Jerrold Shelley, who was shot and killed, colleagues told the Sun. Norred would not confirm victims’ identities.

The Arizona Republic said Shelley was shot at his office, a quarter-mile from the county courthouse.

The Yuma County Sheriff’s Office was called to the first scene this morning, when the body of a woman was found in a yard at Avenue 35-1/2E and Old Highway 80, the Sun said.
