Rejecting responsibility for any wrongdoing within your organisation because it's too big. Laying the blame on people who you trusted that let you down and let down the people who you trusted and so forth. Then claiming you're the best person to clear up the mess!
Louise Mensch: "Mr Murdoch, have you considered resigning?

Rupert Murdoch: "No."

LM: "Why not?"

RM: "Because, I feel that people I trusted, I'm not saying who, I don't know what level, have let me down. I think they behaved disgracefully and betrayed the company, and me. It's for them to pay. I think that, frankly, I'm the best person to clear this up. I plead the Murdoch defence!"
