Faux News exposed!

Crooks & Liars:
While at Davos, Rupert Murdoch discusses the rise of the Internet and digital media, but tells us he used News Corp. to manipulate the news.

Asked if his News Corp. managed to shape the agenda on the war in Iraq, Murdoch said: "No, I don't think so. We tried." Asked by Rose for further comment, he said: "We basically supported the Bush policy in the Middle East…but we have been very critical of his execution."

Am I reading this correctly? I found the webcast and it seems they haven't included Rupert's admission in the 9 minutes or so that they posted? I emailed The World Economic Forum for the full video. A memo to Murdock: A news organization is supposed to report—–— the news, not support an agenda.

Mark Howard sent in the tip and has more

Juan Cole…Murdoch's media have done more to cheapen American values…

H/T The Liberal Journal:

Supported the war, but critical of its execution--kind of sounds like Murdoch's favorite Democrat, Hillary Clinton.
