That's about how much I value them.

Close em down then.

Hey, we finally agree on something.

So the sensationalist rag lost out to the other sensationalist rag?

Sun: Here are boobs and stupid words.
DM: Immigrant paedophiles will steal your boobs.

Sun Owner: Supports new Nazis
DM Owner: Supported old Nazis

Where's the WWN when you need them?

The Sun is no longer there?

No. Negative value.  Society is paying for the abject evil that comes out of Murdoch's rectum.

We should be able to directly bill newspapers that take a huge shiat on society for the time it takes to personally clean that shiat up.  Every farking facebook post, every farking Qanon lie, all those hours deprogramming people.  Bill it directly to these farkers.

And here's a photo of Murdoch visiting McConnell to give him his marching orders:

How does that make you feel MAGAts? Some foreign guy giving instructions to American politicians?

Who am I kidding, they're fine with it.

Are you saying the Sun shines out of Murdoch's ass?

Then perhaps he should sell them to actual news people.

It's a tax avoidance scam.

In the old days, when a ship captain would come into the harbor, he was supposed to pay a tax on the value of his cargo - but the captains always undervalued their cargo to avoid taxes.
So the harbors instituted a new rule: you could value your cargo anyway you wanted - but the Harbor city had the option to buy the cargo for that price.

I say it's time to do the same with corporations. Murdoch says his company has zero value? Great - here's zero dollars, we own it now.

Tax scheme?

Didn't have enough other avenues to write off all his tax obligations so marked this down?

I can't believe he is allowed to write off the penalties they paid for phone hacking. He broke the law, and it gets him out of paying taxes. Doesn't that kind of write-off incentivize breaking laws?

Huh. I thought the Sun was far older. Like, it was instrumental in driving the fear of Jack the Ripper so readers wouldn't hear about the successful organizing at the match factory in the same area.

It's way too many years sitting in front of a desk with bad posture.

I know a professor whose neck has bowed forward that exact way.
