Fox News Anchor To Rupert Murdoch: ‘Mr Chairman Sir, Why Are You So Great?’

Rupert Murdoch, chair and CEO of News Corp, emerged from his bunker yesterday to face the media.

Well, one media outlet at least – Fox News (proprietor: Mr R. Murdoch).

A good opportunity, then, to quiz the great man about the goings-on in another part of his empire, namely News International’s News of the World.

This is how that particular exchange played out:

Fox Anchor: “Mr Chairman sir, thanks very much for joining us. We appreciate it.”

Rupert Murdoch: “Fine, good afternoon.”

Fox Anchor: “The story that’s really buzzing all around the country and certainly here in New York is that the News of the World, a News Corporation newspaper in Britain used…”

Rupert Murdoch: “I’m not talking about that issue at all today. Sorry.”

Fox Anchor: “Okay. No worries Mr Chairman, that’s fine with me.”

And the great inquest was over.

Fox News – fair and balanced. And awfully nice to the boss.

And Sarah Montague stuck it to Mark Thompson on Today, even though the expenses allegations really weren’t that much to write home about. Ah, public service broadcasters. Couldn’t bear to be without them…
