Rupert Murdoch - Caricature

Martin Lewis on Rupert Murdoch's motivation to build a reactionary Right Wing press:

Murdoch's smarts told him that he could profit mightily if only there was a permanent Conservative government in power in the UK. But how to do that when working class people selfishly insisted on voting for their own economic interests rather than those of Rupert? BINGO! It suddenly hit Rupert. Find a way to seduce working class people away from their natural instincts.
