PBS ‘Frontline’ Exposé on News Corp. and Rupert Murdoch Slated for March 27

Back in January, we linked to a post on Fox News Channel anchor Geraldo Rivera‘s Facebook page, in which he recalls having dinner with his former colleague from ABC News, Lowell Bergman. Rivera was upset because Bergman wanted to talk about the News Corp. hacking scandal, and whether Fox News was involved in any way. Bergman told Rivera that he was working on a story for the PBS series “Frontline” about the scandal.

Today, PBS and the CBC (which is a co-producer on the special) announced that the “Frontline” special, “Murdoch’s Scandal,” will debut on Tuesday, March 27. Based on the trailer below, there isn’t any doubt as to where “Frontline” comes down on the scandal:
