So, Rupert Murdoch presides over a bunch of flagrant cheats. Why is everyone acting surprised?
IT'S WHAT THEY DO!
Unless you are completely stupid you should know that everything in Murdoch's history points to semi-truths, half-truths, non-truths, lies and worse in order to get what he wants. Whether it is a Prime Minister (Thatcher he actually famously crowed about on his front page) needing election, a war-criminal President, a legislative change allowing him more concentrated control and power, some way for him to not pay tax etc... Whatever it is, he knows no lowness to which he is unstoopable.
This could just upset sport-mad footy lovers enough to do something about this shocking man and his company, maybe.
Unfortunately, a quick look at the comments on the 'Courier-Mail' story doesn't even show a hint of anger directed at Murdoch or News Ltd. for this fraud.
Here is what appears if you leave a comment on one of his crappy mono-media papers' website:
