Rupert Murdoch's $uper Bowl

Reported by Melanie - February 3, 2008 -

Are you watching the Super Bowl?

Think about this: Rupert Murdoch owns News Corp. News Corp. owns the Fox Broadcasting Company, the station that is airing the game. The woman who sang the Star Spangled Banner was a former contestant on Fox's American Idol, and you can catch a replay of your favorite Super Bowl ad at Murdoch's MySpace.com/superbowlads.

Comment: Does media consolidation ring a bell here?

UPDATE: I figured Tom Petty, the halftime "talent," must have a connection to Rupert. Sure enough. I Googled him and imagine my surprise, surprise. I found him under "The 2008 Republican Convention/video theme/tom," and under this Republican convention theme.

Yep. We're talkin' Fox and Friends * here folks.
