Rupert Murdoch


Media Perverts

I’ve been closely following the news and news commentary for a quarter century now and drawing cartoons about it almost as long. Sick freaks from the top down to the lowly cartoonist at bottom.

Quitting Twitter has spared me from catching a lot of the worst takes people rage share, and it’s been a marked improvement on my quality of life. Yet somehow I still see the worst offenders when they cross over to the more earnest folks over on Mastodon.

I drew myself in better shape than my last self-insert and you’ll just have to trust me that it’s accurate.

Fox News’s Deposition Bloopers

Read the comic on Patreon.

Evidence collected during discovery in Dominion’s defamation suit against Fox News  clearly shows they’re the propaganda arm of the Republican party. So has the last several decades of its existence, but mainstream media continued to pretend they’re a real news outlet.

Murdoch usually settles so this stuff gets buried in NDAs, but this piece by Amanda Marcotte gives an explanation for why he’s letting all this dirty laundry go out to the public.

Cable carriages fees continue to prop up Murdoch’s media empire, and I’m part of the problem. While I was drawing this, I was using my cable subscription to watch a Bruins game. At least the win soothed my conscience for a couple minutes.

Forgot to post this here over the holiday. Apologies!

Short week for Thanksgiving, even though I’m not traveling. COVID, flu, RSV, and even our dear old pal the common cold will be. Stay healthy out there.

Tucker Carlson’s Toadies

Read the comic on Patreon.

Since COVID’s still rippin’, there aren’t many options for sports fans who don’t want Long COVID to watch games. Stadiums and bars are out, and if you’re in the same TV market as the teams you like, the streaming options are blacked out.

The names of everyone featured in the comic aren’t stated explicitly, because they are tedious people who name-search and I don’t want to deal with them or their weird fans. If you can’t identify them, you have a healthier media diet than I do!

Consider this comic an attempt to alleviate some of the guilt I feel every time I plop on a baseball or hockey game.

Rupert Murdoch’s National Geographic

Rupert Murdoch's National GeographicI was bummed when I heard Rupert Murdoch was purchasing National Geographic. I haven’t read it regularly in years, but it was a huge part of my childhood; right up there with “Highlights” and “MAD” magazine. Now that it’s owned by a climate change skeptic who’s also the┬áprogenitor of toxic cable and tabloid news, I won’t be picking it up the next time I’m waiting at the dentist’s office.
