Murdoch vs Murdoch.
Compare the quotes from two different Murdoch publications:
From the Wall Street Journal:
“We are not coming here to receive lessons in terms of democracy or in terms of how to manage our economy,” said European Commission President José Manuel Barroso.
Mr. Barroso, asked by a Canadian reporter why North Americans should help pay for Europe’s crisis, broke from his conciliatory tone and effectively blamed U.S. practices for causing the European troubles.
“This crisis was not originated in Europe,” Mr. Barroso said. “This crisis was originated in North America. Many in our financial sector were contaminated by unorthodox practices from some sectors of the financial market.”
Meanwhile on news.com.au:
In an embarrassing swipe at the PM, on the first day of the official meeting of leaders gathered at the Mexican luxury resort region of Los Cabos, EC President Jose Manuel Barroso said he would not be lectured by anyone.
“Frankly, we are not coming here to receive lessons in terms of democracy or in terms of how to handle the economy,” he said.
A swipe at a Canadian journalist has somehow morphed into criticism of the Australian Prime Minister.
The Murdoch Virus in action.
