Murdoch Sets Sights on Full-scale Internet Acquisition

Special interest media tycoon Rupert Murdoch has long since owned the television and newspaper outlets, but now he's ready to tackle the internet with disinformation as well. He is already going to now be allowed to own TV stations and newspapers in the same area, and he has completely turned MySpace into his own little marketing device that pertains to his agendas, and his endorsing of Hillary Clinton can already be seen all over that website. Murdoch now wants to master the new technologies of the internet, and use them in the same manner as he 'uses' other owned media outlets. There is too much truth and information getting out on the internet, so they must put a dent in it. Just in time for the Iran war, huh Mr. Murdoch?

The chairman of News Corporation has told a meeting in Adelaide that the company will have to work hard to educate advertisers on the virtues of the internet.

Rupert Murdoch has addressed a shareholders information meeting, speaking about the competing technologies News Corporation must deal with, which include the internet.

He says the company is making headway through its social networking site MySpace, which now has more than 200 million registered users.

"It's taken off and we have to do a big job in educating big advertisers that this is a wonderful platform for them to sell their goods on," he said.

"We already do business with the 80 of the top 100 marketing companies but we should be doing it in larger amounts."
