"Did you see this article in the Wall Street Journal? Firefighters rescued a puppy from a tree!"

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!"

Get the Murdoch defence mug.
term coined after the press Barron Rupert Murdoch, used to indicate a corporations mind set that uses bent or twisted morality in the so called public good to countenance amoral behaviour by that corporation. As in hacking of a murdered school girl mobile phone in the name of freedom of the press.
The actions of this drugs company are pour "murdoch's morality" hiding the fact it kills users because they say it gives hope to others.

A man who is responsible for lots of damage with his propaganda machine “news” networks. Specifically with Fox News in the US, that has spread so much disinformation to millions of Americans. This has created a massive cult of ignorance and facts denial within the country. This cult eventually manifested itself in the form of the events that took place at the US Capitol on January 6, 2021.
So yeah, Rupert Murdoch has caused lots of damage. People who have consumed the propaganda and lies from his “news” networks have completely disconnected from reality. Some of these people have become so severely deluded that it is almost frightening.
