Market preview: Benchmark S&P futures -0.6% and following Europe lower as gold passes $1,600/oz for the first time, as Washington and Europe can't put debt issues to rest. News Corp. -4.9% on the continuing phone-hacking scandal and Hasbro -1.4% despite earnings beating forecasts, although Halliburton +1.7% and Gannett +4.5% after doing the same.
