Is the world beginning top open its eyes and waken up to the lies and deceit we have been fed for years by a cabal of the powerful few? Or is Murdoch, the Grandmaster, sacrificing a pawn to strengthen his position elsewhere on the board?
He has closed News of The World, so the competition commission will be less able to force him to divest Sky News as part of the BSkyB takeover and the share price has dropped, so he’ll get it in the cheap. All in time for him to re-open NOTW or launch the Sunday Sun.
Meanwhile, the rest of his global empire continues – denying climate change and propping the oil and military sectors – business as usual.
