Um no, I don't recall him ever commenting on subversive subtexts in The Simpsons. He is involved personally with the news arm, though.

As for the rest of the Murdoch entertainment product,they all seem fine with any klass act that will attract their audience. And they do know their audience. Compare to Paley's CBS in the early decades.

I think he's a conservative as well at heart, but he is also a businessman, and like successful businessmen do, you expand your market. Hence why his News Corp. plays both sides. Which is how you end up with conservative Fox News and liberals like Wanda Sykes both employed by his company

They’re ALL just one big propaganda machine, which is why I don’t defend the right or the left. They feign dissension to keep the sheeple at each other’s throats, while they sip cocktails together, and give each other high-fives. We are mere pawns in their game.

Well as far I'm concerned - "law abiding illegals" is just another meaningless euphemism along the lines of "undocumented American" - no such animal exists, except in the minds of the illegals and their self serving advocates and apologists. (I'm not even sure THEY truly believe the pap they spew tbh)

They don’t. But, they MUST follow the script.

Explain how then. And yes it does. How do you explain the movie Avatar then, which is owned by 20th Century Fox, aka News Corp? The movie had anti-human and environmentalist undertones in it, which falls into the left side of the spectrum

this argument iss way too old, and ther is no answer any one is going to be happy with.
Are you going to ay $5.00 for a head of lettus, or grow your own?
There are no wages any one is going to be satisfied with to compensate a ballance .
Illegals do work that for the most part you won't do. unless you are willing to part with all that wealth hidden in your mattress. ya , all of you are rich and can afoard to pay some body $20. an hour to clean your toilet.
I don't like the fact the liegals have more rights than we do and don't actually get punished for it where as if we were in their country the whole picture would be much different .
so what are you going to do? nothing but complain.
I have worked along side illegals, most of them send their wages home. they don't blow it on junk they don't need . Their money is siphoned out of this country to their own . So who is smarter ?
The borders of america are a sad joke, democrats have seen to that, NAFTA. we are dissolving into the rest of the world like coolade in water. America was fun while it lasted , get ready to say good by.

Oh, I thought you meant the news division. My bad, or since it's Murdoch and Fox, my ba-a-a-ad.

Answered above, then.

Illegal immigrants have been working in the agriculture industry and as domestic workers in huge numbers since the Second World War.

You're right that people who don't want amnesty need to stop complaining and start making noise, but I think without FreedomWorks or some similar corporate group doing it for them they'll never get organized on their own. You're so right, much easier to lie in the Barcalounger behind their stomachs and fume.

I wonder why FreedomWorks et al. aren't organizing anti-II rallies in Washington?
