Rupert Murdoch: Neither Shy Not RetiringJon Fine
I suppose it’s a sign of severe geekhood if you walk away from a lengthy interview with Rupert Murdoch thinking about how funny he is. Anyway, he spoke today at the McGraw Hill Media Summit* and it went a little bit like this.
One thing: A Borat sequel pends. UPDATE 2/9: Turns out Rupert got a bit ahead of this one. As this Variety story reports, and a News Corp. spokesman confirms, no deal’s been inked.
(*Obligatory Disclosures: The McGraw Hill Companies, which puts on the Media Summit, is BusinessWeek’s parent company. The gentleman who interviewed Murdoch at the conference, BusinessWeek’s editor-in-chief Stephen J. Adler, is my boss. This last sentence is only here so that this disclosure paragraph is substantially longer than the rest of this post.)
