Have you ever seen the 2004 documentary Outfoxed? You should. It’s an interesting perspective on the inner workings of Fox News – Rupert Murdoch’s favourite place to spread the bullshit. These days that’s not really working out for him and that’s why Ruppie’s moved on to bigger and better things: the kids. It’s always about the kids, “Murdoch’s gonna save the children!”
Of course this makes perfect sense…if he can’t listen to your phone conversations, control your mind and flip your ideas, he’s going to make damn sure that he gets your kids for his puppet show. I feel like this could be a new hit reality show 20 years from now. We could call it Children of Murdoch.
Anyway, how did this all come about? In 2010 Murdoch bought Wireless Generation, a Brooklyn-based company dedicated to providing educational software such as, assessment tools and data services to schools. Isn’t he just so wonderful? The issue here is: who actually wants Murdoch in schools? Should anyone involved in business, political and social scandals be allowed to educate future generations? Um, no.
And isn’t it just so nice of him to ‘all of a sudden’ notice that schools need funding. You think he would have read that in one of the numerous newspapers he owns, right? Well good ol’ Ruppie feels like now is the time for him to step in and help the kiddies because according to him there is ‘a colossal failure of imagination’.
Let’s think about this quote as we watch this short clip of Ruppie admitting that his Corporation supported the Bush policy and manipulated news stories for the News Corps agenda:
Sorry Ruppie, but, you’ve got to stay away from the kids and their imagination. You’ve already done enough damage to one generation. I mean, we just can’t trust you Ruppie, you’re sketchier than a crackhead; at least we know their intentions.
