Comments on: Murdoch, Bancroft & Murdoch Esq. http://blogs.reuters.com/mediafile/2008/10/17/murdoch-bancroft-murdoch-esq/ Where media and technology meet Wed, 16 Nov 2016 08:48:25 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: fbla1805 http://blogs.reuters.com/mediafile/2008/10/17/murdoch-bancroft-murdoch-esq/#comment-352970 Tue, 21 Oct 2008 07:50:58 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/mediafile/2008/10/17/murdoch-bancroft-murdoch-esq/#comment-352970 I find it interesting that the theme of integrity in Murdoch’s media empire didn’t come up for discussion.

It certainly is an issue in the current US election, with huge numbers of citizens
desperate for change, while Murdoch’s Fox News and Wall Street Journal agitate relentlessly for the Republican ticket (Rupert even went so far as to put radio talking-head Rush Limbaugh on the pages of the Wall St Journal)!

However, in just 14 days, the politics of ploys, stunts, slime, sleazy robocalls, and culture wars will be on the ballot! I’ll wager a bet that on Nov. 4th, the politics of Bush/Cheney, McCain/Palin, Karl Rove/Steve Schmidt, and Rupert Murdoch’s Fox News, will be defeated.

Fellow American citizens – we need a massive turnout of citizens, and a landslide victory, because we know the Republicans will again try to steal this election at the polling stations, just like in 2000 and 2004!

People, let’s find the strength and courage to vote Obama/Biden into office and return honesty, decency, and integrity to American politics.

And starting Nov. 5th, let us together begin the hard work of repairing the immense damage these thieves and scoundrels, among them Rupert Murdoch, have done to our country and our people.

I’ve had 10 rounds with Rupert at shareholder meetings over the years but couldn’t make the trip from Melbourne to New York this year.

What’s your email address as would like to send you our account of the News Corp annual meeting.
