Parliament’s decision to recall Rupert Murdoch is just ludicrous
Parliament’s culture select committee has decided to recall Rupert Murdoch after revelations that he regretted co-operating in the inquiry into phone hacking. Frankly, this is just ludicrous and yet another fine example of pandering to the populist.
Murdoch may have said a few controversial things whilst recorded covertly but do this bunch of foolish MPs not realise that they should be focusing on others?
Piers Morgan’s tenure at The Mirror wasn’t without incident and Alan Rusbridger’s Guardian is hardly innocent either. Murdoch is an easy scapegoat and the Citizen Kane figure of our times, but come on, isn’t it time that this populist caravan moved on?
