Murdoch’s Sun Influence in Pictures

One of the most memorable soundbites from the Leveson Inquiry was Rupert Murdoch telling Mr Jay: “if you want to judge my thinking, look at the Sun“. That mantra was strikingly evident this morning as Uncle Rupe’s tweets on Scientology were followed by front page splash just hours later:

Now that the media mogul is on Twitter,  Sun editor Dominic Mohan doesn’t even have to wait for the call…

    Is it not an offence under Section 5 of the Public Order Act to call this cult a cult?

    Almost anything to do with Hollywood is probably best treated with either deep suspicion or outright contempt.

    Scientology sounds about as much benefit to humankind as Islamic Fundamentalism.

Rod Liddle on the loony UN sexism special rapporteur:

“There is more sexism in Britain than in any other country in the world, according to a mad woman who has been sent here by the United Nations.

Rashida Manjoo is a part-time professor of law at Cape Town University in the totally non-sexist country of South Africa (otherwise known as Rape Capital Of The World).

Mrs Magoo has been wandering around with her notebook and is appalled by the sexist “boys’ club” culture here, apparently.

I don’t doubt we still have sexism in the UK. But is it worse than in, say, Saudi Arabia, d’you think, honey-lamb? Or about 175 other countries? Get a grip, you doolally old bat.”
