In breaking news, Rupert Murdoch, head honcho of one of the world’s largest international corporations said today “Give me another shovel, this hole’s not big enough!”
Haha, I jest, but what he actually said was effectively the same thing, when he tweeted that the people making a representation to British Prime Minister David Cameron over News Corp’s reprehensible hacking of their phones were ‘scumbag celebrities’. Nice one Rupert, that’ll endear you to just about everyone.
But best of all, this Twitter exchange was made:
Commenter: “Scumbags”? And your journalists and executives are what?”
Murdoch: “They don’t get arrested for indecency on major LA highways!(i) Or abandon love child’s”
Love child’s? Love child’s? Awesome. The head of one of the biggest news agencies on the planet has no grasp of grammar OR punctuation.
It’s not a crossword puzzle, Mr Murdoch, it’s a leopard. You’re totally fucked.
- Oh, but they DO get arrested and charged for other much more serious criminal activities, or perhaps that’s slipped your mind? [↩]
