Washington Post Compares Victoria Newman to Rupert Murdoch?!
Okay, this is awesomeness. A blogger for the Washington Post referenced a storyline from CBS Daytime's The Young and the Restless in a piece about the News Corp. phone hacking scandal! When discussing allegations that British tabloids like Rupert Murdoch's now defunct and disgraced News of The World made practice of bribing elected officials, Genoa City's own Victoria Newman (Amelia Heinle) was cited.
A partial nod must go to the soap opera The Young and the Restless, whose character Victoria Newman was arrested on her wedding day for allegedly bribing a foreign dignitary. Television and Murdoch and ’round-the-clock FCPA conjecture — it’s a welcome publicity storm for the FCPA bar.
Thank Soap Jesus they weren't watching the day Genie Francis nearly bit off Tristan Rogers' bottom lip, or they'd be using it to discuss a story on marital cannibalism.
