The Murdoch/Sky/News Ltd affair is getting positively biblical.
Look for old business rivals resurfacing to drag the company over the coals, government imposition of rules of play for media organisations (unnecessary IMHO), law suits in abundance ... even more than at present, and heaps of smiting and slewing going on in the background.
Rupert, James, Lachlan and Co obviously knew nothing about this as well. :)
