Rupert Murdoch - from journalist Mike Royko - a prescient and fabulous quotation.

When the Chicago Daily News closed, Mike Royko ( a fabulous journalist jmp)  worked for its allied morning newspaper, the Chicago Sun-Times.

 In 1984, Rupert Murdoch, for whom Royko said he would never work, bought the Sun-Times. Royko commented that: 

"no self-respecting fish would want to be wrapped in a 

Murdoch paper".

And with that Royko resigned from the Sun-Times.

I suggest that Mike Royko had more integrity in his little finger than former and current British Premiers  ( Blair [Labour] and Cameron [Conservative] ) have in their well fed paunches.
