You can basically tell who is going to win an election in Britain based solely on whom Murdoch is supporting at the time, since he controls The Sun http://ruttienthevisa.com/like-several-other-suburban-districts-that-failed-to-receive/, and The Times and BSkyB, making him second only to the BBC (who are supposed to be impartial) in media ownership in the United Kingdom (Explaining why most of his papers are incredibly critical of the BBC in almost all capacities). His influence is so great that after an unexpected win for the Conservatives in the 1992 election the Sun triumphantly announced ‘It’s the Sun wot won it’, and the triumphant Conservatives practically acknowledged as much. Potential prime ministers get one meeting a year to wow Murdoch into supporting them. His cosy position of influence is in some jeopardy after several years of allegations that the News of the World hacked into the phones of several celebrities and famous people, which has now extended to include hacking the phones of the families of dead soldiers and 7/7 victims and deleting messages on the phone of a murdered girl to listen in on more. Shortly afterwards, Murdoch’s son announced that the paper was being shut down due to the controversy (but another Murdoch rag, the Sun on Sunday, quickly popped up to replace it, despite being at least as explicit in its hacking activities as the News of the World.) Despite this, the scandal has spread to other News International titles and also abroad, with his US companies also being investigated as a result (However thanks to his almost total ownership of the British media, the reporting on the phone hacking scandal has perhaps not been as revealing and scandalous as it should have been). His influence may be waning in the aftermath of these revelations, with the Parliamentary Select Committee on Culture, Media and Sport publishing a report on May 1st, declaring “that Rupert Murdoch is not a fit person to exercise the stewardship of a major international company” and broadcasting regulator Ofcom looking into whether BSkyB can retain its broadcasting licence while News Corp still owns 39% of its shares.
Those who desperately want to believe that President Kennedy was the victim of a conspiracy have my sympathy. I share their yearning. To employ what may seem an odd metaphor, there is an esthetic principle here. If you put six million dead Jews on one side of a scale and on the other side put the Nazi regime the greatest gang of criminals ever to seize control of a modern state you have a rough balance: greatest crime, greatest criminals. But if you put the murdered President of the United States on one side of a scale and that wretched waif Oswald on the other side, it doesn’t balance. You want to add something weightier to Oswald. It would invest the President’s death with meaning, endowing him with martyrdom. He would have died for something. A conspiracy would, of course, do the job nicely.
