Is Rupert Murdoch the Devil?

So firstly, I do want to apologise for the radio silence. Work has been crazy, and frankly any time I could spend on weekends NOT sitting at my laptop was hard fought and rare.

However, I am pleased say that I am back and looking forward to picking up where I left off…. starting of course with a redesign of my blog, which I hope you all like (feel free to comment).

Now that I AM back, it feels only right to start with something topical, and what better than phone hacking and Murdoch Snr etc etc. The title of this post may seem inflamatory, but you will forgive me for coming to this conclusion when I recently went onto the Guardian website. Here is a screen grab of the front page:

Now I ask you: is this or is this not an awesome use of the shirt collar of the chap sitting behind Murdoch to make a point that the Guardian would not normally make? Not to mention the pained look on his face, which just adds to the effect.

    Murdock’s Eulogy by Peter Shakespeare Baxter

    Friends, Readers, countrymen, lend me your ears;
    I come to bury Murdock, not to praise him.
    The evil that men do lives after them;
    The good is oft interred with their bones;
    So let it be with Murdock.
    The noble Orwell hath told you Murdock was ambitious:
    If it were so, it was a grievous fault,
    And grievously hath Murdock answered it.
    Here, under leave of Orwell and the rest –
    For Orwell was an honourable man;
    So are were all, all honourable men –
    Come I to speak at Murdock’s inquest.
    O judgment! thou art fled to brutish beasts,
    For all men have lost their reason. Bear with me;
    For my heart is in the custard pie there with Murdock,
    And I must pause till it come back to me.
    A once noble profession graced by the likes
    Of Orwell and Greene as today become the
    Possession of a custard pie.
    A pie cooked in Murdock’s bakery.

    PS that is George Orwell or Eric Blair and Henry Graham Greene for the benefit of journalists everywhere.
