Poor Murdoch

In the last two days, I happened to see two opportunistic ads on the Internet at the expense of Rupert Murdoch. Here they are:

Real Journalism means…never having to say you’re sorry

Powershop ad: Same power different attitude

While finding the whole UK News of the World phone hacking scandal┬áincredibly… well scandalous, I can’t help but feeling sorry for Murdoch. The way the newspaper gathered there information were questionable, but haven’t we heard enough about it already? Shouldn’t we give Murdoch a rest? All I hear on my media podcasts about three weeks ago were ‘phone hacking scandal’ ‘Murdoch’ ‘News of the World’ etc on mediawatch from the UK, Australia and New Zealand, those are the only ones I listen to so I wouldn’t be surprised if similar content were broadcast all over the world.

Do you think these two ads offensive?

Do you think the Powershop ad could even be offensive religiously?
