I first learned about Rupert Murdoch's daughter's having a bi-racial husband (African father Dutch mother) from a friend of mine who happens to be from Ghana. When she first told me I couldn't believe it. Murdoch? The same Rupert Murdoch who runs the most racist and insensitive news organization in the world? That Rupert Murdoch? As it turns out, it was true. Later on, of course, Elisabeth ditched her bi-racial husband and has since remarried. Her new husband is the subject of this post.
Seems Murdoch's new son in- law is speaking out about the evil empire, and the folks over at Radio Rwanda are not pleased. If he had his way Robert Ailes (That man with a mug that only conservatives and a mother could love) would be out the door.
“I am by no means alone within the family or the company in being ashamed and sickened by Roger Ailes’s horrendous and sustained disregard of the journalistic standards that News Corporation, its founder and every other global media business aspires to..”
Bravo Mr. Freud! Your great grandfather would be proud of you. We all know that Roger Ailes is a despicable excuse for a human being, and he runs an equally despicable organization, [please note how they initially covered the Haitian earthquake. They gave more coverage to the ACORN incidents.] but having one of Rupert's family member say it was very refreshing. Especially one from a family tree who should know a psycho when he sees one.
Now, of course, Roger is fighting back, and he vows that he is not going anywhere. The scum bag made over 20 million last year, so why should he. Still, at the end of the day, it's Rupert writing the checks. So we will see.
And finally, before I go, a few words about another news organization: I have to give props to Anderson Cooper and the folks over at CNN for being all over the Haitian earthquake from day one, and for keeping us updated by putting this tragedy right in the middle of our living rooms. That is what a real news organization does. The folks over at FOX should be taking notes....wait, never mind, that would actually involve writing.
