Is Jeff pursuing a content strategy? Washington Post for investigation and Business Insider for Biz news would be great.
Personally I'd rather have Jeff Bezos than Rupert Murdoch, but maybe that's just me...
Murdoch is easily one of the most evil people to have ever walked on this planet. He enabled the Iraq war which has seen a mass loss of life for no real gain. He supported the widespread hacking of UK citizens. His meddling in politics and elections in the UK, US and Australia is unprecedented, brazen and has unquestionably undermined democracy.
Even now he flew over an Editor from the NY Post to Australia to influence the election here who already is shocking the political scene here.
He didn't take a negative or neutral position. He actively campaigned for it across three continents (UK, US and Australia). And it has been widely reported that Blair was heavily influenced by Murdoch.
The NYT didn't officially take a position. It just failed in its duty to check the facts.
Even if I were to believe that, it would be an odd comparison to make.
Yeah him and healthy majorities of both houses of Congress. Did Parliament not get the memo?
Was that undermining democracy?
On the first day of an election campaign the headline was:
"Finally you now have the chance to KICK THIS MOB OUT"
That is undermining democracy.
Hmm! Didn't notice that, interesting.
