Rupert Murdoch’s media empire has come under tremendous attack the past few weeks.
I am not a fan on Murdoch and have believed his actions have always been one step ahead of the law. So this latest scandal doesn’t surprise me.
Evil Media Conglomerates are common in history.
Rupert Murdoch is just the latest in a string a mega-maniacal media barrons who manipulate the news, intentionally mis-lead and create a story they want to tell. Murdoch’s cronies went too far and broke the law. They should be arrested and jailed.
But again, this is not the first time, nor will it be the last time someone gains monopolistic control over the media.
William Randolph Hearst and Joseph Pulitzer were known for their battles and the tension to get a story created ‘yellow journalism’ and the active mis-leading of the truth. Hearst is even credited (blamed) with stirring national sentiment and created the Spanish-American War. That is power?
Murdoch is evil. What he has done in the UK is completely wrong and he deserves to be brought down.
Will anyone see that his FOX NEWS in America has done more to harm our Democracy than any single entity of the past 50 years?
Murdoch is old and maybe this scandal will kill him. But there will be others. As long as the media has such control over how and what people think, there will be criminals like Murdoch to exploit it.
