At least he is not a fraudster and convicted felon

Pot, Kettle….Conrad Black calls Rupert Murdoch a psychopath. I think I’d rather be called a psychopath than a fraudster and convicted felon:

THE former media magnate Conrad Black has labelled Rupert Murdoch a ”psychopath” and compared the News Corp boss to Joseph Stalin.

Lord Black, a former owner of London’s Daily Telegraph and former part-owner of Fairfax Media, spent three years in a US jail for fraud. He described Mr Murdoch as an ”astonishingly cold man”.

”He’s a psychopath … like Stalin, except that he doesn’t kill people,” Lord Black told The Independent in London. ”I’m not suggesting he’s a homicidal psychopath – he just severs people out of his life like that.

”I have great admiration for what he’s achieved but he’s a terrible man.”

He said the outcry overphone hacking was ”one of the all-time backflips of hypocrisy”.

”For 40 years [the establishment] knew how Murdoch ran his company and they did nothing but kiss his undercarriage,” Lord Black said.

Lord Black, who was released from jail in May, was speaking before an appearance to promote his memoirs.
