Some good questions in the accompanying transcript, Stephen. All credit to you for not letting up on this crew, obviously you're in a minority taking them to task.

But isn't it like hitting a brick wall - Murdoch and his coven are mostly unresponsive and unedifying. Purporting not to have read the books you mentioned shows what a spineless and dishonest herd they are. If Murdoch genuinely doesn't know who John Stewart is then he must live in a vacuum: Stewart is possibly his most vocal and highest profile critic… not to mention wickedly scathing.

Darned if I know how you can bear to spend even a few minutes in the same room with the good ol' boys of News Ltd - you must have a love/hate relationship with their AGM.

KEITH Olbermann, not Steve Olbermann.

He's on MSNBC, along with other excellent journalists in the form of Rachel Maddow amongst others.

Surprisingly (not) MSNBC is not part of any package offered by Rupert's FoxTel.

Thankfully, the interwebs allow Australian viewers to see their shows.
