'I'll provide the war'

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

On 2 February, at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, panelist Rupert Murdoch was asked if News Corp, owner of Fox News, had managed to shape the agenda on the war in Iraq.

Murdoch replied, “No, I don't think so. We tried.”

Asked for further comment, he said: “We basically supported the Bush policy in the Middle East … but we have been very critical of his execution.”


“We tried” to shape the agenda on the march to war in Iraq? Fox News “very critical” of Bush’s execution of that war?

You decide.
