Murdoch Requests Correction Over Guardian Fake News

Anyone with a Twitter account will at some point have seen one of the many memes quoting Rupert Murdoch on why he backs Brexit: “When I go into Downing Street they do what I say; when I go to Brussels they take no notice“. The quote was first attributed to him by Anthony Hilton in the Standard and repeated in the Guardian and Indy, as well has being shared thousands and thousands of times on social media by the usual Murdophobes. Today Rupert has written to the Guardian to demand a correction:

“There is much fake news published about me, but let me make clear that I have never uttered those words.”

Sure all those ‘press ethics’ campaigners will be posting prominent corrections on their Twitter accounts…
