Now that you’ve registered at the NY Times site (what, you mean you don’t just blindly follow every link I put up here because I tell you to like you have nothing better to do?), you’ll be able to read this opinion piece on the dangers of private ownership, which is particularly scathing about everybody’s favourite hugely powerful media tycoon, Rupert Murdoch.

Although I agree entirely with the article (and despise Murdoch as much as the next guy), I did just wonder if the fact the he is singled out has anything to do with the fact that he is the proprietor of their rival New York paper, the Post?
