It's ironic that this week Rupert Murdoch's Sunday Times included a supplement listing the 100 best companies to work for. You won't find his company listed, or any other publisher or broadcaster for that matter.
"Never let a crisis go to waste", James Murdoch told gathered journalists at one of his 'town hall' business briefings, attended by staff from the News of the World under a three-line whip. Few wanted to be there. They had too much work to do back in the office.
There is never an ideal time to either have a baby or launch a newspaper. If we sat around waiting for the perfect economic conditions, we would have neither. That is why we have such a thing as, 'the force of nature'. Rupert Murdoch is part of that force.
