Murdoch's "News" Empire Continues Losing Credibility
The problem with Murdoch is that he is among those wealthy Republicans who have put idiots into the Senate and the House. But he neglects to notice that Republican Senators and Representatives actually take his news empire seriously. The consequence? The idiots can't govern.
As extraordinary as it may sound, Murdoch actually has trouble understanding that if you feed nonsense to your senators and representatives, they won't actually have the skills to know what they're doing beyond the usual campaign and propaganda nonsense. Real news is actually valuable when dealing with the news of the day. For example, if global warming is having a damaging effect on agriculture and there are things that can be done about it so food can continue to be put on America's dinner tables, wouldn't you want your senator and representatives to be informed?
Ah, but Murdoch is not a farmer, nor even much of a news man.
