This week's podcast: what's up, Murdoch
While I cheer the tear down of all-powerful media companies and any exposure of their alleged shady dealings the disturbing thing about the Murdoch deal was the quick and viral reaction to his wife swatting away a pie thrower during the hearings. That she was so quickly seized upon as a hero suggests the real story of criminal activity has already receded back beyond the summer haze.
Scott also asks about the trip to New York. I'm in Manhattan to check out the giant outdoor set of Boardwalk Empire, which returns to HBO Canada for a second season in September.
You can listen in here.
