It’s one thing to be offered a baloney sandwich with a smidgen of mustard in a prison cell, but it’s another thing to be offered it in your hotel suite and be told it’s the main (dish) headline of the day. How ironic then that Mr Murdoch eventually got caught in his own musical chairs routine. Let’s hope he leaves some crumbs for the birds…

So much for being a media titan when you break every rule in the rule book to get there....
