I’m sure that’s what the Murdochs’ hoped-for alibi was when the phone-hacking scandal first broke about two weeks ago.

Namely, find some underling to pin it on, then swear on a stack of bibles that said underling was a “rogue” who acted independently.

Just two small problems:

1) Tourre works for Goldman Sachs (or did); and

2) The Murdochs’ would-be fall guy (and his immediate superiors) wouldn’t stick to the Murdochs’ script.
