Murdoch's Empire Is in Orbit: With the OK to buy DirecTV, the media titan can conquer more U.S. viewers via satellite

Los Angeles Times

Note the word choice: Murdoch "conquers" viewers, he doesn't "win-over" or "please" them. Apparently Murdoch is looking to be the American Berlusconi. Although "conquer" better connotes a media Mussolini. A Machiavellian mogul, if you will. I won't anymore.

Given Murdoch's influences, perhaps he should consider conquering Italy. Oh yeah, he's already trying to do that.
