Murdoch's Spin on Iraq

Finally, an admission that big-media (in the shape of Murdoch's News Corporation.) that the Iraq war was spun:
Murdoch was asked if News Corp. had managed to shape the agenda on the war in Iraq. His answer?

"No, I don't think so. We tried [...] We basically supported the Bush policy in the Middle East...but we have been very critical of his execution."

Let me repeat this: "We Tried!"

I wonder if the bigwigs at Davos think that only fellow elites are listening and care what is said? The pushing of Davos onto the global agenda for its lack of democracy is another plus for the anti-capitalist/globalisation movement.
