Also of note: He is the arch-nemisis of the pencil-thin moustache wearin', traitor-banging, moody American media mogul Ted Turner who owns the city of Atlana including the Falcons, the Braves in addition to such cable networks as CNN, TNT, TBS and TMC among others. He once challanged Murdoch to a pay-per-view boxing match which the entire world (myself in particular) would love to see.
I share his birthday too: March 11th.
In other words, he controls a good portion of western civilization. He should be toppled for the sake of western civilization.
Its too bad he isn't the A-Team Murdoch, or Mr. T woulda owned him.
