Rupert Murdoch: Google Is Piracy Leader

By: Chris Crum - January 14, 2012

Rupert Murdoch is really getting into this tweeting thing. The other day he was talking about how his company “screwed up in every way possible” with Myspace, and now he’s blasting Google and Obama (presumably in reference to his administration’s response to SOPA petitions).

Within the last couple of hours or so, he has tweeted the following:

So Obama has thrown in his lot withSilicon Valley paymasters who threaten all software creators with piracy, plain thievery.

Piracy leader is Google who streams movies free, sells advts around them. No wonder pouring millions into lobbying. 1 hour ago via Twitter for iPad · powered by @socialditto

Film making risky as hell. This has to lead to less, hurting writers, actors, all concerned. 1 hour ago via Twitter for iPad · powered by @socialditto

    From his tweets, at least the ones discussed here and the few I’ve seen. It’s pretty clear Murdock is out of touch with reality. How old is he now? I dunno but he looks old enough to be put in a home and he sure is acting like it.

    I agree with the above poster’s response. What would he say if yahoo, msn/bing and google never created there business. Wonder how crappy the online world would be without these search engines today?
