    On 4 September 1985, Murdoch became a naturalized citizen to satisfy the legal requirement that only US citizens were permitted to own US television stations. This resulted in Murdoch losing his Australian citizenship.  ...  Murdoch went alone and bought the [Metromedia TV] stations, and later bought out Davis' remaining stake in Fox for $325 million. The six television stations owned by Metromedia would form the nucleus of the Fox Broadcasting Company, founded on 9 October 1986...   In 2004, Murdoch announced that he was moving News Corporation headquarters from Adelaide, Australia to the United States.
    Can't hold that against him.

    Norquist seems to take his orders from the Koch brothers.

    Pogo rulz...
