Rupert’s Brand

by Bruce Bennett

“Rupert Murdoch to Retire From Fox and News Corporation Boards
The move leaves his son Lachlan as the sole executive in charge
of the global media empire.”
The New York Times

Glad to see the old boy go.
Doubt that it’ll matter, though.

Lachlan’s there to carry on.
See to things once Daddy’s gone.

Fox and such will stay the same.
Truth will play a losing game.

Keep that bubbly stowed away.
Rupert’s brand is here to stay.
