This from the company that made its name dumming down the news

This perfectly tasteless editorial cartoon appears in the Rupert-owned Times of London. It's message, as I understand it, is as follows:

"Please stop talking about our embarrassing scandal even as it threatens to bring down the British government and to destroy a huge, multi-national corporation. Because that's not news. Somalia, on the other hand, is news, and that's where you dogooder journalists ought to be directing your attention."

Only IRONY! the Times of London did not, in fact, have a story about Somalia or famines in the edition in which this self-serving cartoon appeared.

Next time, we get full-press Fox led coverage of Anthony Weiner's junk, or an edited Acorn Video, or any of the other fake FOX controversies, I hope someone nails this cartoon to Uncle Rupey's forehead.
