Someone Finally Gets Fired Over NY Post Chimp Cartoon -- But Who?

Someone has finally been fired for that dreadful NY Post cartoon which appeared to portray Barack Obama as a monkey.

But you'll never guess who they fired...

Rupert Murdoch's empire needs to be taken down. A good start would be revocation of his U.S. citizenship, which he obviously got only so that he could set up a network in the U.S.

Not that I think this will ever happen.

I think Olbermann has a very good take on this when he states that Murdoch would back the Democrats "in a nano second" if he thought it would make him money.

Here in the UK, as soon as he could see Labour in the ascendency, he dumped the Tories and backed Labour. Recently, he has gone back the other way but, for the last thirteen years, The Sun has supported progressive politics.

In fact, I read in this month's Vanity Fair that Murdoch is kicking himself for not backing Obama.

He goes where he thinks the profit is. He's got even fewer morals than we thought.
