Another Murdock aide flees the controversy

In another symptom of a bloodbath in the Rupert Murdock newspaper operation, Les Hinton, CEO of Dow Jones in the US – who had worked for Murdock for FIFTY-TWO YEARS, no less – quit his media empire.

British PM David Cameron is also chewing his nails, as it is revealed that he had 26 meetings in 15 months with Murdock chiefs, a cogent sign of the malign influence the Aussie-born mogul wrought in British politics.

Murdock is now trying the humble-pie-eating ploy. In a distinct contrast to his earlier defiance, he has published full-page signed apologies in seven national British dailies this weekend.
