Anyone else watching the comedy show on Sky. Poor little old man is getting all upset.

I cant make my mind up whether he is a confused old duffer, or a very astute and clever old fox.

My moneys on the first but I could be wrong.

I think this is the game they are playing; he will step down, as a shareholder, watching today would you have any confidence in his ability to run the company?

Soon the audience will be crying leave the poor old man alone!

Was about to start a thread on this myself :) He certainly doesn't seem to have much of a grip on what's going on in his companies. Can see the shares in News Corp going into freefall unless James pulls off a miracle. Makes for damn good TV.

Don't be fooled, previous employees have reported that he mumbles, talks to himself when being presented to, drifts off on other subjects but instantly talks over you forcibly when he spots an error. A bit like Sugar but more money and power. Clever old ******.

I wouldnt have confidence in him running a bingo game, the son on the other hand is showing all the signs of being as slippery as a slippery thing, he's the one to watch!!

NotW, NC and NI have only been doing (allegedly along with other newspapers) been doing what the russians do 24 hours a day, through their trade mission and embassy, and that is listen into ALL mobile phone calls or calls by microwave link, into and out of London. Unfortunately for Murdoch, they did it underhand, using bribery and illicit payments, allegedly.

Can't wait for the selective amnesia from Ms Brooks

There's an awful lot of long pauses and hesitation before/while answering the questions, I reckon Murdoch jnr is going to need help getting off that chair his arse is proberbly clamped like a vice on it right now.

Now we are into the "I have no knowledge of this" show.

Lots of plausible deniability going on.

He probably genuinely doesn't know the answers to a lot of these questions.
He is an incredibly wealthy man who owns a huge business, I doubt he is interested or aware of what were (until very recently) minor operational details.

From what I have seen this is a charade by the Murdoch's Rupert playing the frail old man and James trying to protect him, we are sorry, we didn't know. Arrest the buggers and lock them up.

The I do not know is coming from both Murdochs and they have had plenty of time to prepare!

Welll...the same happened in Russia, when Putin started throwing people like Murdoch into cages/prisons.

Well...I predict...if the British public rise up against him...he will do what most rich guys like him do...claim exile in Israel or go to America.

I have always thought him to be an odious little rodent.

For no other reasons than to further his media ambitions, and inflate his own self importance,

- he was/is prepared to exploit the most basic of human (male) instincts, in introducing the unnecessary titillation that is “Page 3”,

and that,

- to obtain a USA passport (simply to further his media ambitions in the USA), he was prepared to deny his country of birth.

He is also a Republican, and anti-Royalist.

None of the above, does anything to mitigate against his (apparent) repellent character!

That he is eighty years old, simply means he is now an aging, odious little rodent.

So, to summarise:

1. He didn't know what was going on.

2. His son (the highly-paid executive) didn't know what was going on.

3. His editor (paid to be in overall control of the paper) didn't know what was going on.

Two questions I'd like the answer to are 'Who, exactly, did know what was going on?' and 'Why hasn't he sued the other two to recoup the wasted salaries he was paying them?'
