Murdoch, The News of the World and News International

Apart from recording the rabbit's utter glee at seeing the evil empire coming unstuck and his suspicion that unfortunately it will come bouncing back after a little cynical rebranding (why does the thought of a Sun on Sunday seem less than reassuring as regards an improvement in journalistic ethical standards?) what is there left to say?

Only that those naughty Downfall spoofers have been at it again! Oh and that Steve Bell has been on storming form as usual.

On a more pleasant note, below is a short film by a young woman of the rabbit's slight acquaintance from his sojourn in Birmingham named Rebecca Sloan. Quite nostalgic stuff here - at least for me... Filmed in Birmingham in April 2011.

I was anxiously awaiting your post on Rupert. I knew you wouldn't be able to resist.

I was amazed how that goose in the film could pull the boat. It must have terrifically strong legs.

As cheesy as that song is, there is something about it I like. The video was, well, lovely.

steve bell - national treasure.
the sun (whatever the day) - national embarassment.

I have to admit that Rupert Murdoch is a slight diversion compared to the mess that is going on in the US regarding the Budget.

Although, it is all related since Murdoch's Fox News fuels the Tea Party idiocy and he is a significant part of the Libertarian Cato Institute (not to sound too paranoid).

It would be nice to see Murdoch's Thousand Year Reich come to an end.

It would be even better to see Michelle Bachmann do an Iris Robinson!
