Telegraph article on Rupert Murdoch: 'Don't let him get away with it' Whatever you think of Tony Blair, his success is linked directly to Rupert Murdoch. Remember when The Sun transferred its support from the Tories to New Labour? Ever since that moment we have had to put up with the BLiar. As Richard Branson says: "All of us know governments are scared stiff of Murdoch. If The Sun, The Sunday Times, The Times, Sky, The News of the World, just to name a few of the things that Murdoch owns, all come out in favour of a particular political party, the election is likely to be won by that particular party." What he hasn't listed are the US interests of Murdoch, eg the Fox TV network, the extent of which dwarfs his reach to UK audiences. Perhaps siding with Branson in this dispute is like siding with Apple against Microsoft, both are aiming for domination in their field, just one seems slightly less sinister than the other. In this case, a balance of power might not be a bad thing.
