Murdoch Is Watching You
An interior designer who apparently thought that Rupert Murdoch is the owner of Australia's Fairfax Media placed some 50 floor-to-ceiling glass pillars featuring Murdoch's image in Fairfax's new offices in Sydney, which opened Thursday. Fairfax is an arch rival of Murdoch's News Corp. It publishes the Sydney Morning Herald, The Australian Financial Review and the Sun-Herald. Bruce Wolpe, a Fairfax spokesman, facetiously told The Australian newspaper, a News Corp publication: "His image is gazing fondly on the newsroom of today, which he has talked about in such rapturous terms, and a vote is being taken now as to whether it is the best place for him or whether we should find another location."
