Well, I'll be

Even the conservatives in Great Britain (who to be fair would be more liberal than most Democrats in this country sadly) have summed up Rupert thusly:

Zac Goldsmith, a Conservative, said the Murdoch empire had become too powerful.

We have seen, I would say, systemic abuse of almost unprecedented power. There is nothing noble in what these newspapers have been doing. Rupert Murdoch is clearly a very, very talented businessman, he's possibly even a genius, but his organisation has grown too powerful and has abused that power. It has systematically corrupted the police and in my view has gelded this Parliament to our shame.

If only Americans would be similarly "fair and balanced" for real.

the man knows how to use the language: gelded parliament is a very exquisite word choice.
