Here's hoping it fails miserably.

Just what we need, another right wing tabloid.

I'm reminded of *Ghandi's reaction to the question "What do you think about Western Civilization?": "It would be a good start."

*or the Dalai Lama
*or Confucius
*or Achnaten....

This ungodly piece of shiat.

I'm pretty sure that would either unleash the wrath of Helios or the armies of Khorne upon the earth.

The Sun is basically Daily Mail with less journalistic integrity.

Please. Muricans love fake news.

Murdoch is just deploying another weapon to help trump win the 2020 election with fake news.

An odd choice. I thought print was in its death throes.

Finally, a decent website in the US that Fark can constantly greenlight links to.

What a perfect intro: "We forced Harry and Meghan out of the UK!"

Murdoch made his name with yellow journalism, rags like The Sun in the UK.

OTOH: "Hi, I'm America, I can't read."

It'll be the new zombo.com

Oh yay...more bullshiat on dead trees.

Oh joy... Now we have an American version of a British tabloid because we don't get enough farking Brit tabloids on Fark already....

He used to heavily subsidize the NY Post in order to make it cheaper than the Daily News. Not sure if he still does. So basically doesn't believe in the free market, just propaganda.

Sounds like your taking a pretty firm position on that. Are you going to have to get a new profile pic, sans fence?

Step 2: Block out the sun, so everyone has to buy his SUN.

I heard the quote as "someone should try it sometime".

I guess the Sun is here, too?

Yaaaaaaayyyyyy.... /s

I thought it was, "It would be a good idea."

Competing with the Washington Times/NY Post for the massive right wing print journalism audience.  Sounds like a winning business model.
 
2020-01-13 8:37:04 PM  
List of things Murdoch should do :
1. Fark off and die
2. End of list

That assumes the mission of a print business is to make a profit for its owners.
 
2020-01-13 8:43:45 PM  
That is the worst news I've heard in a long time. I thought Murdoch was dead.

Misinformation needs a new home now that the Enquirer has been defanged.

Wow, bold move Murdoch, looks like your going to do well launching a NEWSPAPER in the age of tech, so many people walking past those newspapers, barely noticing them while they have their noses dug into their SMART phones.....Hey Rupy, how about your next move is to take a wormhole back to the fall of '06 and pour all of you assets into home mortgages, and no, the page 3 girls won't work anymore....
