Bolt, Credlin, Jones = Murdoch. Enough said.

If you want to get an insight as to what Rupert really is, read "The Fourth Estate" by Jeffrey Archer.

welp.
I refuse to pay for anything Murdoch related.

Fun fact: if you sign up to BetEasy (no need to place a bet), they'll give you a 3-month Kayo trial (no need to put in credit card details in case you forget to opt out). I've been doing that for two years now.

If the content was available on any other platform/provider I'd happily pay, however. Nice way to watch non-FTA games.

Some say the media has a left wing bias, more like a right wing cheer squad.

One interesting thing about Fox and their opinion shows, they rate crap, but they are on all the TVs at parliament house in Canberra and in airport lounges. They know how to get to the important markets.

The accusation that the ABC is somehow left wing is only possible because some seem to think Murdoch papers and TV are somehow in the middle.

Variety is the spice of life.

"Murdoch" is a choice just like following the tigers.

Choose not to read, not to pay, not to listen.

A mate of mine made his way well up the ladder of News Corp and worked closely with Murdoch.

When he got married, Murdoch attended the wedding after his helicopter landed in the grounds next to the church.

At the reception he was like a friendly Uncle, hitting the dance floor and having a ball. I still struggle to reconcile his personality with what an evil old bastard he is.

I doubt he believes he is "evil" and many others clearly don't either

Pretty sure Robbo is a bachelor isn't he? Probably not through choice.

This fella started as a news journo but quickly moved into the corporate side of things. He's good mates with Damien Barrett who was there so not much chance of Robbo being in the same circle!

AB. Good man.
