celebs111008_43_200.jpgLOS ANGELES, California (X17online) - Rupert Murdoch went on the offensive in response to reported corporate piracy allegations that surfaced in the U.K. and Australia this week.

The News Corp. chairman and CEO took to his Twitter account with quotes suggesting that the allegations are falsified.

"Seems every competitor and enemy piling on with lies and libels. So bad, easy to hit back hard, which preparing," Murdoch tweeted.

"Enemies many different agendas, but worst old toffs and right wingers who still want last century's status quo with their monopolies," the media mogul added. "Let's have it on! Choice, freedom of thought and markets, individual personal responsibility."

Murdoch's colleagues, COO Chase Carey and NDS chair Ade Peled, also issued statements defending their companies amid the report released by the Australian Financial Review on Wednesday which claimed NDS was responsible for sabotaging business rivals, fabricating legal actions and obtaining telephone records illegally.
