Oh Mr Murdoch, what a tangled web we weave as we set out to deceive

http://www.businessweek.com/europe/graphic-news-corps-tangled-web-07142011-gfx.html

This is not the fall of the British, Australian or US governments. It is something better. It is their final break from the clutches of the Murdoch empire. No longer will Murdoch be able to dictate the agenda of these governments, no longer will he be able to
blackmail or threaten the Leaders of the main political parties in those Countries.

Imagine how Blair would be viewed without the ugliness of the Iraq war.
Imagine if the Murdoch press had no ability to push the Swift-Boaters.
Imagine if Fox had no ability to push the creation of “The Tea Party”, the only protest group in the World campaigning for cuts in government spending.
Imagine a congress free from the threats of the Murdoch press.

Imagine no more.

Being associated with Murdoch is now a poison. His empire may not be bust, News Corp and News International are massively profitable but they are now impotent. This impotence is likely to be the best result for democracy since universal franchise. We may even see the rise of sensible Republicans as a result.

    Well Rupert, what goes around, comes around. Now it has come to bite him the ass.

    This tangled web is nothing compared to the web that will be exposed when project Fast and Furious is looked into. Obama will have a tough time explaining why he allowed the ATF to sell weapons to the Mexican drug cartels which were later used to kill US border agents along with hundreds of Mexican citizens.
