I'll admit that I watch a couple of Fox networks (Fox Soccer Channel and Fox Soccer Plus) but I don't mind giving him my money for them because they're the only places I can get regular football matches from Europe.
That said, I got a problem with giving him billions of my tax dollars:
(Reuters) - Rupert Murdoch may not garner as much attention for his financial savvy as he does for his journalistic escapades, which last week led to the shuttering of Britain's oldest tabloid. But that doesn't make his money management any less impressive.
Over the past four years Murdoch's U.S.-based News Corp. has made money on income taxes. Having earned $10.4 billion in profits, News Corp. would have been expected to pay $3.6 billion at the 35 percent corporate tax rate. Instead, it actually collected $4.8 billion in income tax refunds, all or nearly all from the U.S. government.
I say it's about time we stop paying him to help destroy the country.
