Rupert Murdoch... blogging?

"We may want to experiment with the concept of using bloggers to supplement our daily coverage of news on the net." -- Rupert Murdoch

But he's got one big concern... "maintaining our standards for accuracy and reliability." It's really gonna be tough, what with all those commenters out there!

The 20th Century Fox, Murdoch, 74, has become 21st Century Daddy.

On Wednesday night the TV season ends with an IDOL bang and FOX finishing #1 -- for the first time -- in the ad demo, 18-49, and #1 in teens.

At the box-office Murdoch takes #1 by distributing REVENGE OF THE SITH.

In the heated cable news race, FOXNEWS [despite faulty Internet rumors] continues to dominate all dayparts, all demos, all ratings, and has all but caught CNN in ad revenues. [Hoping to jump-start its chances against FOXNEWS, NBC is preparing to rename MSNBC to 'NBC NEWS CHANNEL.']

Murdoch's SUN newspaper in London continues to dazzle and ignite the world with shock photos and splashes of Saddam's underwear and Prince Harry's swastika, defying the trend of a fading print genre.

The man from Oz has captured and conquered the popular culture.

Say what you will...
