Re: "...inadequate, commercially, socially and journalistically," said Murdoch

When someone makes Murdoch look like Bogart in "Deadline", you have to think something must have really gone wrong...

Which, by the way has this quote "It's not enough any more to give 'em just news. They want comics, contests, puzzles. They want to know how to bake a cake, win friends, and influence the future. Ergo, horoscopes, tips on the horses, interpretation of dreams so they can win on the numbers lottery. And, if they accidentally stumble on the first page... news! "

Just baits were used to drive people to real news - now some real news are used to drive people to remunerative baits...
