Rupert is Evil ads; Moveon.orgGothamist can't wait to see the new ads that basically paint Rupert Murdoch as the media tyrant we know he is. Created by MoveOn.org, the ads try to inform the American public about Rupert's evil plans to take over the world, by way of his Death Star, News Corporation, as the FCC may be relaxing media ownership rules.

The TV spot focuses on Murdoch and a channel surfer's inability to get the octogenarian media mogul off his screen regardless of which channel he visits. A voiceover then declares, "On June 2nd, the Republicans on the FCC plan to get rid of an important regulation so that Rupert Murdoch can buy more TV stations, radio stations and newspapers, giving him control over much of the news you hear." The spot ends with the tagline, "This monopoly is no game."

More on Rupert Murdoch. Rupert, Ted Turner, Sumner Redstone...they don't make crazy media moguls the way they used to. They seem to get crazier as they get older. If only we could do a crazy old people ad with crazy media moguls.
