Rupert Murdoch: Self-Described 'Billionaire Tyrant'

Posted by: Jon Fine on September 27, 2007

I’ve been looking online for this forever, and big thanks to Jack Shafer and Slate for finally putting it up. Launch this Slate video and scroll ahead to 4:15, to find the Simpsons scene in which an animated Murdoch—who, as Shafer points out, said the line himself—declares “I am Rupert Murdoch, the billionaire tyrant, and this is my skybox!”

(Funny, though. Always imagined this line would be delivered with much more verve than it was on this clip.)
