      That's not some hyperbole that I got caught up in in the heat of the moment, either. I spent much of the 80's trying to tell people that Murdoch was a greater threat to our democracy and welfare than Reagan.

      So, yeah, most dangerous. More dangerous than Glenn Beck. More dangerous than Grover Norquist. More dangerous than Dick Fucking Cheney.

      The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.

        He ruined British journalism, then British politics, and was on the verge of destroying the BBC (his bete noire)

        As I've said many times, the cultural lifeline to me during my tough relatively impoverished adolescence (single mum/state housing) was the Sunday Times, which Rupert took over and ruined.

        Then all my adult life, both politically and in my world of TV, he was the slow drip drip drip of right wing thinking and the lowest common denominator.

        "It is only for the sake of those without hope that hope is given to us." Walter Benjamin. More sane debate on the Moose
