Rupert Murdoch Moseying On
The major news today was that Rupert Murdoch is stepping down from the role of Chief Executive of 21st Century Fox and hand control of the film and television unit over to his son James while maintaining control over the News Corp periodicals outlet. While it would be certainly removed from reality to say Fox News is the only guilty party when it comes to misrepresentation of all things Levantine, Rupert has a special place in hell waiting for him for the fever-pitch levels of racism, xenophobia, and anti-Muslim bias he fostered, not to mention being the head troubadour for the band of idiots who led us into the Iraq quagmire. Some of his greatest hits include promoting the nonsense ideas about "Islamo-fascism", the perception of Ariel Sharon as a man of principle and peace, and a steady stream of chicken-hawk jingoism towards an invasion of Iran, not to mention catering to the absolute worst kind of lunatic fringe Christian fundamentalists with streams of invective against feminists, minorities, and just about anyone else who is not white.
