Tell Rupert Murdoch to Fox Off!

Marina Hyde is one of the few reasons to read The Guardian these days.

I particularly commend to you her piece today on the possibility that the rogue Murdochs may be allowed to get total control of the UK's dominant satellite TV company.

I like her style, and particularly this bit:

"Within days of the coalition government being formed, it emerged that one of the prime minister's first meetings was with the News Corp overlord himself. According to one account, Murdoch was "ushered up the back stairs of Downing Street" - which sounds like both a statement of fact and a euphemism for what Rupert has been doing to successive governments for decades."

Go Marina!
