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.)
The media, entertainment and marketing worlds continue to shapeshift on a near-daily basis, as new forms arise and old assumptions erode. Where is it all going? No one really knows. But on this blog BusinessWeek’s media writers Tom Lowry and Ron Grover promise to provide ample helpings of scoop, provocation, and sharp analysis as they track and annotate this constantly changing terrain.
