Power of the Voices

Simpson book and television special canceled by NewsCorp.
I will consider this a victory for all of our voices. Power to the People? Perhaps.
Time will tell where the biggest pressure came from, but for now lets pat ourselves on the back

Wow. I mean, WOW! I think this is a first in television history. Who knew that Rupert Murdoch, of ALL people, had a conscience? Oh, wait, he was about to take a baseball bat to the balls. Nevermind.

I'm not sure what you mean by 'baseball bat to hte balls' Do u mean loss of revenue?
What is now just as galling is watching Fox News congratulate themselves and hold up Murdoch as the hero! Good God, it never stops with the spin! Now the 'no story' is the big story and all the media types are MAKING THEMSELVES the freeaking heroes. GAAAAAHHHHH!

Loss of revenue, indeed. Nineteen percent of Rupie's income comes from Fox News advertising and those advertisers were about to bolt, en masse, over the OJ deal.
