Rupert Murdoch The Prince of Evil

"Fair and Balanced"

Australian born Rupert Murdoch has for Decades used the somewhat lax media regulation laws in the U.S. to consolidate power over the wider media empire in the United States and abroad. His satellites deliver T.V. content to five continents, dominating Britain,Italy,and wide swaths of the Middle east. He publishes one hundred and seventy five newspapers, including the New York Post and the Times of London. In the U.S. alone he owns Fox studios,The Fox network, and 45% of television stations in the United States.
Murdoch is by all accounts a far right wing (think Rush on steroids) partisan who uses his empire to swing political debate firmly to the right. He also is a man who admits to having money in tax havens throughout the world...........

 

"Fair and Balanced"

Australian born Rupert Murdoch has for Decades used the somewhat lax media regulation laws in the U.S. to consolidate power over the wider media empire in the United States and abroad.

He publishes one hundred and seventy five newspapers, including the New York Post and the Times of London. In the U.S. alone he owns Fox studios,The Fox network, and 45% of television stations in the United States.
Murdoch is by all accounts a far right wing (think Rush on steroids) partisan who uses his empire to swing political debate firmly to the right. He also is a man who admits to having money in tax havens throughout the world.
A little perspective:  The war monger
Just after the invasion of Iraq, Murdoch came out as one of the more ardent supporters of the war, not terribly surprising considering Bush's agenda (not to mention Karl's brain). He gave his full backing to President Bush and described Tony Blair as "full of guts" for his backing of the war effort. One of Murdoch's many papers is the Weekly Standard, A neo-conservative publication that has employed key figures who pushed for the war in Iraq.
Imperialist
Murdoch acknowledged publicly that his support of the war was based on one thing. Yes, you guessed it...Oil. He Believed that getting rid of Hussein would provide cheaper oil for the rest of the world.

"Do Democrats cause cancer"?
Murdoch the Bully: Murdoch's own Fox News channel threatened to sue the creators of the brilliant show "The Simpsons" over a parody that the show did of the channels right wing stance. Mat Groening the shows creator recalled how the channel had considered legal action despite the fact that the show was on a "sister" channel. The Simpson's episode in a parody of right wing radicals asked the question "Do Democrats cause cancer"? Murdoch was not amused...Not one bit.
"Murdoch the tax cheat"
Murdoch uses arcane tax loopholes to spread his considerable wealth all over the world tax free.  He uses these dicey accounting practices to pump up his acquisition sprees.  Because "News Corp," is viewed as an Australian company, it does not have to adhere to U.S. tax laws.
So this morning (Wednesday) it was revealed that Murdoch has decided to pull out his bid for the acquisition of BSkyB, as the situation in his words has become "too politicized for the Fox News corporation to move forward". A Prime Minister spokesman stated today that, "we welcome the news. As the P.M. has said, the business should be focused on cleaning up the mess".
"A litany of lies and preying on the sick and grieving"
All of the accusations of phone hacking by NOTW have actually been going on for years.  The tipping point came on July 4th when allegations emerged that the mobile phone of murder victim Milly Dowler was hacked when she went missing all the way back to 2002.

JULY 5TH: It emerges that the parents of murdered school girls Holly Wells and Jessica Chapman had been contacted for information looking into the hacking case.
JULY 6TH: Families of 7/7 bombing victims may have been targeted by the NOTW goons,as well as relatives of the soldiers killed in Iraq and Afghanistan. "inappropriate" payments may have been made to Scotland Yard police officials.
JULY 7TH: Advertising companies start abandoning the Murdoch pirate ship. Also it was revealed that over 4,000 victims of hacking and payoffs have been identified by Scotland Yard. Murdoch is forced to shut down the paper.
JULY8TH: Former Downing street commissioner chief Andy Coulson is arrested on suspicion of phone hacking and corruption. Former NOTW chief editor is arrested as well.
JULY 10TH: The final NOTW comes off the presses to much fanfare and many thousands lose their jobs. although you would think they had all won the lottery the way they were celebrating.
JULY11TH: Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg says Rupert needs to reconsider his take over bid of BSkyB.
JULY 12TH: As the crisis deepens it is revealed that the sun accessed the medical records of Gordon Brown's son Fraser, diagnosed with cystic fibrosis in 2006. the Sunday times gained information about Brown's personal bank accounts as well.
JULY 13TH: A full enquiry into the phone hacking scandal is initiated.
" Breaking News"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Is it too much to hope that the domino affect is in play and Fox News will be the next to tumble. Probably not, but this is only the beginning...Stand by.

Stream, rent, or whatever the brilliant documentary "outfoxed". You will find out a thing or two about talking heads and how they are instructed to talk. You might even take a trip to the famed Reagan Library in Semi-Valley, California to see how one movie cowboy can be a God to Murdoch.
