Rupert Murdoch: Pay No Attention to That Man Behind the Curtain

Headline of the hour: "Rupert Murdoch: Fox Not Biased for Bush" (Forbes.com).

See also Outfoxed.org, then hold your sides to keep from exploding what with all that bitter laughter. Fox has regularly declined to attend industry conferences on its journalistic ethics.

The worst news is that NEWS Corp. is coming over here to stay, tranferring its incorporation papers to Maryland. Why is an Australian allowed to interfere in the domestic politics of the United States, you ask? Why do we let the Rev. Sun Myung Moon own newspapers and television outlets? Getulio Vargas of Brazil was probably wise when he outlawed foreign ownership of the nation's media back in the 1940s.Sounds harsh, but there: I said it.
