the cover of this week’s new york magazine features a black and white foto of rupert murdoch with the headline ‘the endgame’ written in bloodred. murdoch celebrates his 71st birthday this week. so it seems fair game to wonder out loud who could replace rupert murdoch. on the surface, all roads point to james murdoch. but perhaps murdoch knows the real reason james murdoch never graduated from harvard.
the magazine speculates on what could happen to the highly successful cable t.v. station, fox news in america. it is the big cash cow (if not the only cash cow) of newscorp. it is for sure that his children will cave into the pressure of their liberal leaning london friends and seek to gut it by offering a talk show to the likes of steven bing and al snore–we mean, gore.
