More Disinformation From the Disreputable FoxAttacks Website

AP: News Corp. “Highly Unlikely” to Proceed With Dow Jones Buy(!!!)

by DJK · Monday July 30, 07:48 PM


"Associated Press reported this potentially good news today:

"As of late Sunday, some 28 percent of the Bancrofts supported the deal, the Journal reported on Monday, but a News Corp. spokesman told the paper that the company was "highly unlikely" to proceed with the deal at that level of support. A News Corp. spokesman confirmed the remarks.

"The Bancroft family, which has controlled Dow Jones for more than a century, has been deeply divided over whether to sell to Murdoch, largely over concerns that his hands-on management style could affect the papers' coverage.

"I’ll believe it when the deal is finally dead, but keep your fingers crossed anyway. I really can’t think of any good reason why Murdoch’s empire needs to get any bigger and more powerful. Not one.

But Thankfully Reuters is there to set the record straight.

Bancroft family accepts News deal: DJ executive

Tuesday July 31, 2007

"CHICAGO (Reuters) - Dow Jones & Co. Inc.'s controlling Bancroft family "has accepted" News Corp.'s $5 billion offer to buy the publisher of the Wall Street Journal, an executive of a Dow Jones unit said on Tuesday.

"The Bancroft family has accepted," John Prestbo, editor and executive director of Dow Jones Indexes, told reporters on Tuesday in Chicago. Dow Jones "will be part of News Corp," he said.

"Prestbo told Reuters the information came from an internal company memo.

(Reporting by Sam Nelson) "

I know, I KNOW, they merely posted an AP story that turned out to be wrong, as the negotiations continued and the deal changed, BUT it's the inference that (1) Murdoch is somehow "evil and (2) that this deal is somehow "bad for business and bad for America," that's shear DISTORTION and DISINFORMATION and this is the kind of pablum we've sadly come to expect even from the major organs of the MSM.


No wonder the radical Left wants to shut down FoxNews and silence Talk Radio, with them out of the way they’d be free to use the media as a full frontal indoctrination tool.

This just in, it looks like a plea from the children of America: “Please don’t brainwash us, PLEASE????”
