On Monday, the Wall Street Journal editorial page took a break from denying climate change to vigorously defend parent company New Corp., which is embroiled in a brutal hacking scandal. Kevin Drum was not impressed.
More on Rupert Murdoch possibly stepping down:The CEO of News Corp. may leave his post based on his performance tomorrow in front of the British Parliament. Chase Carey, above (impressive ‘stache, eh?), would be his likely replacement. This would be a slight to Murdoch’s own son James, by the way. It would be a staggering fall for the self-made media mogul, to put it lightly. (EDIT: There are conflicting reports.)
The reports seem pretty foggy right now. But everyone seriously take a look at that mustache.
