Although his aides are obviously dirty, I’ll wait a while on the man himself.

On the other hand, there is years of evidence that Murdoch and Ailes will do anything in their quest for political power. The article states “Murdoch’s henchmen (and Rebekah Brooks) were running a protection racket in London that collated embarrassing personal information on lawmakers and celebrities.” Many news outlets seem to downplay the fact that the real quest was to control politicians, using the dirt on celebrities was just a sideline that helped the bottom line as a bonus. Murdoch has all the money he needs, his quest is purely for power now.

It is interesting, though, that Bill Clinton’s Arkansas, which set a kind of gold standard for fiefdom politics (along with a few bodies here and there), didn’t hurt Bubba’s POTUS aspirations.
