  2. And we can rest assured that he will give the TRUTH, the WHOLE truth, and NOTHING but the truth because that's what his "news" empire is known for.

  3. This whole thing is a dog and pony show. A lot of British politicians have links to Rupert. They are not going to want everything to come out. Don't fall for the dog and pony show.

  5. For such a big event, that little blurb couldn't have been more boring. Held in a conference room? You don't say! And it's near the House of Commons! Which is near the River Thames! Which is in Westminster! Which is in London!

  6. I think the woman in pink sitting behind Rupert and his son is Rupert's Chinese wife. Rupert married her about 10 years ago, I believe. Some speculated that it might have something to do with Rupert's desire to build his empire in China.

  8. It's hard to imagine that Murdoch's US entities haven't gotten up to similar villainy. It's even harder to imagine US "political leaders" (nudge nudge wink wink) doing anything about it.

  10. 1) The character and tone of News Corp comes from the top. The ruthlessness and win-at-all-costs mentality is Murdoch's. 2) I think James Murdoch is kind of cute.
