Murdock now owns National Geographic !!!


Murdoch purchases Nat Geo for infotainment synergy
Like The Wall Street Journal, National Geographic will lumber on; this deal is all about the boob tube

upert Murdoch’s high-profile purchase of National Geographic — perhaps the most esteemed remaining icon of middlebrow American print culture — has touched off alarms over how the swashbuckling Australian press lord may visit a Fox News makeover on the science monthly. Murdoch, like many a right-wing mogul, is a climate change skeptic, and his flagship cable news company has famously issued editorial directives to downplay the well-established fact of human activity driving up global temperatures. Fox’s on-air talent was explicitly instructed by Washington managing editor Bill Gammon to safeguard against the blurting of the inconvenient truth about global warming during newscasts without first “immediately pointing out that such theories are based on data that critics have called into question.”
