      you're welcome to remain ignorant and swallow the twaddle the leftist media feeds you. That's the nice thing about capitalism; you're not forced to buy anything... except insurance, but that's not capitalism...

        @hiraghm@...

        Yawn. Your ideological huffing and puffing makes you sound 80 years old. Need a blankie?

        This is just more lobotomized fare for Murdoch's easily gulled TV-minded non-thinkers. Line up for your digital swill; be sure to burp yourself.

    Don't trust any New Corp product to be unbiased.

      Absolutely! No matter where your news comes from, you should always verify and double-check what news they're presenting...

      It's just a lot easier to do that with News Corp subsidiaries (such as Fox News) since they present news with an unmistakable bias for facts.

        @hiraghm@... unmistakable bias is correct.. facts? I beg to differ...

    And now we reveal the problem with the Apple Store...

    Way back in the dark ages, when cable was new, one of the advantages advertised was that there were *no commercials*... because you paid by the month. Now, of course, cable is loaded with commercials and you still pay for it.

    News Corp has come out with this app, which I hope they come out with the equivalent for Android, and ooh, it's only 99 cents a week, cheaper than a printed paper!

    Before long, there will be ads appearing in your news content. No problem, some enterprising person will come up with ad-blocker software...

    Not so fast... this was created in cooperation between News Corp and Apple... and Apple must approve every app in the store. What are the odds that Apple will approve an app that removes ads and costs Apple, or one of their major partners, ultimately, revenue?

    What a waste of "programming" time in order to "develop" for the stupid iPad.
