From Der Spiegel

NEWS CORP INTERVIEW: Der Spiegel Q&A with James Murdoch.

SPIEGEL: In your youth you were the enfant terrible of the family: You quit your studies in Harvard, colored your hair blond, had a piercing and founded a hip-hop label. What remains of your rebellion today?

Murdoch: Let me answer it this way: We have always been rebellious. As a company, News Corp. was always the outsider, different from others … a challenger who tries to be better and more efficient than the established players. What I want to say is this: The rebel in our family is the boss, and he’s been that way since the 1950s.

SARAH PALIN … DISINGENUOUS: “Palin would be all but disappearing from view if [Levi] Johnston wasn’t keeping her script interesting.” [Gawker]

She spent today acting shocked, shocked that anyone would put him near a camera, when she should be lapping up the attention — just in time for her book, too!

ONE FRY SHORT OF A HAPPY MEAL: Here’s Rep. Alan Grayson (Florida Democrat), Bill O’Reill, and O’Reilly’s bulldog producer, following up our Wednesday’s Evening Edition video post. This video features an extended tape of Fox’s attempt to interview Grayson (starting at 0:38), and O’Reilly’s spin. Grayson’s called a female lobbyist a whore, said of Dick Chaney that “blood drips from his teeth when he speaks,” and called Fox News “an enemy of peace.” Rep Weiner said Grayson is “one fry short of a Happy Meal.” O’Reilly says Grayson is “out of control.” We post, you decide.
