How can Rupert Murdoch be unfit to run a company when he owns one of the biggest media groups in the world? It is absolutely ridiculous and it is no surprise that it was the Labour MPs on the committee who were more anti-Murdoch. It must be remembered that Murdoch abandoned Labour before the last general election and supported the Tories, so there is plenty of bad blood between the two. I would say that the MPs on the committee are playing with fire. Murdoch will not have taken this criticism lightly although I do agree that there does appear to have been some wrong-doing at his major empire. He has blamed rogue staff members. The MPs decided that the man at the top should know everything that is going on within his media empire, which is quite impossible when you have interests across the globe. While I am no fan of Rupert Murdoch he does deserve credit for building an enormous media outlet which stretches from Britain to Australia and the U.S.. But Murdoch should also remember that a sizeable part of the great British public do not believe that MPs are fit for purpose! I sincerely don´t know how this whole Murdoch episode is going to end but if he decided to leave Britain and sell-off his newspapers it would be a major blow. British newspapers need Murdoch more than he needs them. Politicians should remember that it is them who courted Murdoch not the other way around. They should be very careful.
