Ladies, Rupert wants you!

Rupert Murdoch is concerned that people don't give him the respect he deserves and the "establishment" is out to get him.

It's hard to feel sorry for a multi-billionaire who represents the very worst excesses of the establishment.

As for his contributions to the media industry, we get insights into Rupert's character by hearing recent comments by John Malone, a large shareholder in News Ltd:

"Rupert's got the creativity and the drive. He's got the guts to drive it. It will be more sensational, it [Fox News] will have topless news reporters if it has to. It doesn't really matter. Rupert is just more aggressive than other people. He's smart and he puts the pieces together. The bottom line is it's more important to him than to other people."

Poor Rupert.

Media barons use to get knighted or raised even higher in the peerage, but poor Rupert only has his international political power and billions. He's ol'Dubya's glad handing buddy when our little Johnny visits.

Meanwhile Malone's comments are largely complimentary and as shallow as one would expect from a business partner.
