Then, surprise surprise, Murdoch some months later launched the News of the Worlds daily sister newspaper on a Sunday!.What do you know?!
So. Today was the elderly eels turn to give evidence at the aforementioned enquiry. He ( from what I heard on the radio) made a spirited attempt to both bluff & name drop his way through the questions put to him by the barristers.
He summed himself & his gutter press empire up when he said at one point that....."you (the British & the world) can sum (my) thinking by what's inside the Sun...."(newspaper).
Yes Mr Murdoch we can indeed! When we 'read' the Sun we discover that its full of gibberish, topless girl models, words of no greater than 2 syllables, gossip about which celeb is sleeping with Ryan Giggs et al, cheap money off tokens for holidays in second rate tourist resorts,pages sports news etc etc. All this when the Middle East is in a state of turmoil, the Euro Zone nations are frantically attempting to solve the crisis that threatens to destabilise the European economy- I won't bore you with all the other current newsworthy items-just either log onto the BBC News site or read a quality newspaper NOT owned by Rupert Murdoch.
I've saved the best til last: It appears as though the current Culture Secretary-Jeremy Hunt- in Cameron's Government had his hand in the shit bucket that is the Murdoch empire. He apparently backed the Murdoch empires bid to take over the broadcaster BSkyB-in so doing gave his Governments approval to the bid.
what the hell is going on? Evidently, it appears as though ALL politicians are corrupt & can't be trusted. Gordon (bumbling) Brown (God help us), was also (it appears) involved to some extent or other.
Now Mr Hunt should do the honourable thing, follow the example of his 'special advisor' Adam Smith & resign.
What a mess.
