If the New York Post actually covered the News Corp. scandal

Slide show: Imagining a month of front pages from a world where Murdoch didn't own America's feistiest tabloid

Published July 23, 2011 5:01PM (EDT)

One of the great shames of the News Corporation phone-hacking scandal is that the New York Post has been totally unwilling to cover it. New York's scrappy, offensive, right-wing tabloid is a News Corp. property, and so it's let weeks of outrage pass it by.

What if Rupert Murdoch didn't own the Post? What if they it was free to go after the old man like it goes after everyone else at the center of a scandal? This month's papers might've looked a bit more like ones you see here.
