Pouty, pout, pout. Rupert haz a sad because he can't own all the media on the planet.
Sorry can't buy Trib group or LA Times - cross-ownership laws from another age still in place.

The idea of Rupert Murdoch getting his grimy hands on the LA Times is enough to send me running for the antacids. I felt compelled to reply:
Thank God there’s some shred of our democracy protected from the likes of you, @rupertmurdoch

Seriously, Murdoch owning the Trib and the LA Times would leave most of us with nowhere to turn but right. (Shudder)
