I'll provide the cheerleaders

Rupert Murdoch, owner of News Corp, in his own words:

The Associated Press reported that in a discussion with Business Week’s editor-in-chief, Steve Adler, on 8 February, Rupert Murdoch said that the business news channel his media conglomerate plans to launch this fall will be more "business-friendly" than its rival CNBC.

Murdoch said the new Fox business channel - Fox Biz - would be friendlier to the business world than CNBC, whose parent company is GE’s NBC Universal.

"They leap on every scandal, or what they think is a scandal," Murdoch said.


“Leap” on business scandals? Report on CEOs turned crooks? Go after consumer ripoffs? Maybe talk about Halliburton’s use of U.S. taxpayer dollars in Iraq? Point out industrial rape of our environment? The audacity!

Expect more cheerleading from News Corp and those “fair, balanced and unafraid” Fox folks.
