Oh, to be young and think your campus administration gives a flying fuck about undergrads' opinions.

Um, Rupert Murdoch has been America's Rupert Murdoch since 1985.

Go ahead and let 'em buy all the newspapers they want. The Koch brothers are going to find it a whole lot easier to make money selling toilet paper than printing on newsprint. It'll be the worst thing that's ever happened to their business empire. Maybe they could ask Barry Diller how he's made such a killing owning Newsweek.

Cute girls.

Not to marginalize the issue.

But man, really cute girls.

ditto @2.

Murdoch already owns the Wall Street Journal. Do your research.

I'd worry more about this proposed buyout by the Koch's, but the newspaper business seems to be relentlessly heading into the shitter. If the Koch's want to loose money on a bad investment, I'm reluctant to demand a stop to it for political reasons.

I wholeheartedly agree with the students ideals—the Koch's are dangerous lunatics—but I can't work up too much concern for this particular transaction. Maybe I'm just burned out.

Good luck with that :-/

I'd be convinced that they're already paying teabaggy dinguses to comment the shit out of various newspapers if those stupid dingbats weren't already doing that for free.

What libertarian paradise they'll live in when they're taken advantage of.

I'm guessing the dudes are going along with the whole thing because the girls are relatively cute and pretending to be a caring white man might let them get her drunk and, maybe, second base.

Or they could have room temperature IQs and actually not understand:
- the difference between Libertarian and Republican.
- that they're being used by the Democrats as useful idiots and free labor.
- they don't have a chance with those girls. Those chicks will be getting it from some non-political bad boys later.

On the Media ran a story on how billionaire asshat Sheldon Adelson purchased a big newspaper in Israel.

He gives the paper away.

Other more objective papers can't compete and die.
His now more Adelson-minded paper floods the market and attains highest-readership. That market is now his mouthpiece.

I will never be able to get over how WHITE Seattle white people are. Seriously, that girl holding the paper blends in with it. Never seen paler people as I have in the PNW.

@8 the propensity for German/Scandinavian heritage around here doesn't help things much (I know firsthand)
