Rupert is only 81. His mom is like 102, though. And still moving.

Didn't know Rupert was still making moves...at the ripe old age of 120, he's still making moves!  LOL

Good point @Cat Tail. And that is probably a good thing.

You must not be an Australian media mogul with a wife who takes on pie throwers.

My wife tweeting "Let's have it on" would certainly be outside my comfort zone.

@Ted Faraone, thank you so much for sharing your "boots on the ground" impressions of News Corp and Rupert's management style.  Fascinating insights...

I think Rupert's kids, especially James are his Achilles heel.  It's a drama played out everyday around the world--a family business in transition.

You illuminate an interesting paradox:  News Corp needs to be centrally controlled, but the few competent people who can really do the job are overextended in trying to do everything themselves.  Rupert struck out with James, and that must hurt.

I think highly of Chase Carey but he and Rupert have their hands full all right!

Maybe his wife tweeted from his account. She's pretty feisty -- and has proven she'll defend her husband.

I see the lashing out from the man at the helm of News Corp as quite scripted, the kind of targeted bluster you see on Fox News.  A man like Murdoch did not get to the top by flying off the handle under pressure.

Undoubtedly the home secretary hit a nerve somewhere, but it's unclear where.  As the clip mentions, the reverse-engineering involved did not break the law.

The complete trust of ITV in Canal-Plus' unhackable smart card could not fail to remind me of the western democracies reliance on the Maginot line to hold back the Germans.  If there is ever a lesson to be learned from this tale of espionage it is that network security is a game of walls and ladders.
