    He looks more like a horse steroid affected Harry Potter with those glasses. This could be the sunburnt version?

    drmick: He’s very careful with sun-protection.

    And the irony of our media being broke and not trusted by anyone much is lost in the rantings of the Murdoch ragsters.

    One complaint – had to actually see the Telegraph. Erk, still gagging!

    The front page of The Tele is the quintessential example of shooting oneself in the foot. It would almost be worth buying today’s edition to frame. But best not.

    I think that you meant Goebbels, not Goering – all he did was run the Luftwaffe – whereas Goebbels was the wannabe journo & creator/editor of Beobachter, the virulent nazi rag.
    VA – to misquote Hannah Arendt, “the evil of banality” – Mudorc’s minions would be lucky to be street sweepers in the real world.

    “Shooting yourself in the foot” – or a “Murdochasm”?

    Can’t be long now before Old Rupe is brought to The Hague on a tumbrel to have the rat cage clamped to his face.

    Yaiz, I had a look at the Daily Tele and heard part of the speech made by the CEO of News Corp (Oz) at an Australia/Israel confab. He put up a magnificent display of mock outrage. So much so that he ran the risk of exposing the hoi polloi to a solid round of laughter. His audience merely kept silent. Gutless bästards.

    As usual Will Shakespeare had it right about evil succeeding and good being drowned.
