Rupert Murdoch gives me Schadenfreudegasm

There is nothing happening right now that gives me schadenfreudigasm more than what's happening to Rupert Murdoch.  In my opinion, he is one of the most dangerous persons on earth.  His bile-filled, world-wide, media empire threatens the very roots of freedom of speech, indeed, the very roots of individual freedom altogether.  If the Nazis were in control, he would be Joseph Goebbels.

Here's a partial list of U.S. assets (which are dwarfed by his world-wide assets):

  • 20th Century Fox Television
  • Fox Broadcasting Company, which includes 42 individual television stations in major markets throughout the U.S.
  • Fox News, Sports, and Movie channels on cable.
  • Fox Interactive Media on the internet including My Space.
  • 29 Magazines world-wide
  • The Wall Street Journal
  • USA Today
  • The New York Post
  • The Washington Times
  • Baron's
  • Financial News
  • The Dow Jones Company and all of it's subsidiaries, including the Dow Jones Index.
  • HarperCollins Publishing
The man has a virtual stranglehold on Australia where he owns or controls a whopping 178 newspapers.

There was a time when foreign entities were not allowed ownership of media within the U.S. so as to prevent undue influence of U.S. policy from outside sources.  Of course, Ronald Reagan, in another of his wonderful "free market" moves, opened the door to this media monster and the grid-lock and hatred that permeate our society and government today are the result.  Fricking good job Ronnie.

May the hounds eat you alive Mr. Murdoch.


  1. I used it yesterday, so I'm just glad someone else used Schadenfreude.

    As for Murdoch, well, I find it very interesting that he also owns Zondervan, a publisher of Evangelical Bibles and Christian publications. Interesting because he's the devil, yet he's propagating God's word.

  2. Power corrupts, as they say. This man is a good demonstration of that.

  3. I say it couldn't happen to a nicer fellow. I agree that he is a very dangerous person. However, he's old, and I don't think his son has what it takes to run the empire. And hopefully, there isn't another like R.M with the money to take it over.

  4. Like slimy lifeforms I figure Murdoch will wiggle free of any consequences. Now, I figure if he can't buy his way clear of this stuff soon that redhead will be sacrificed along with anyone else to save his butt.

  5. From your mouth to the hounds ears, Mr. C. I can think of nothing healthier in the current dismal financial and political climate than to witness the crumbling of Planet Murdoch. I wanna watch him curl up in the corner and melt away into an acid pool, him and all his flying monkeys. Might be just what this country needs to shake it out of its "The American people have give us a mandate..." mythology.

  6. I don't remember. My son says...is that custard that fellow is bringing me for a snack...

    Ol' Rupert damn near brought me to tears when telling the story of his dear old daddy and his being hated for exposing corruption. But then I remembered this man holds the keys to many many many mental slaves and how much he has adversely affected the entire economy of the world.

  7. Yes, I live in a box. I didn't know he owned Fox News. Nope. Now it all makes sense.

    I know it isn't nice to rejoice in the downfall of the enemy, but I'm pretty darn happy.

  8. Unfortunately the British Parliamentary Committee seemed to have failed to bite Mr. Murdoch where it hurts. And I have to even grudgingly admire his wife's loyalty and tenacity - she even managed to hit and foil the pie wielding man trying to assault her husband.

  9. Sadly, I don't think he will ever be brought to account for all the bad he has done.


Sorry about the comment thingy folks. Too much spam.
