The R Word
A lot interests me about the Rupert Murdoch and News Corp unfolding crisis. But two things are on my mind. One is a quote that I have used from Murdoch in articles or such: ” Reputation’s worth more than the last hundred million dollars.” The second is that Murdoch has not used the “reputation” word in his comments although the only female in this drama, Rebekah Brooks, has. She said the following in her resignation letter: “The reputation of the company we love so much, as well as the press freedoms we value so highly, are all at risk.” Let’s see who uses it next.
7-16 Just read that Murdoch said that the da mage to News Corp’ reputation is “nothing that will not be recovered” and that “We have a reputation of great good works in this country.” More to come.
