Rupe: ‘Everything We Do, CNBC Will Copy’; Times Bias; Borat Sequel Coming

murdoch_foreign_policy.jpgPlenty of coverage of yesterday’s candid interview with Rupert Murdoch at the McGraw-Hill summit in New York. Some highlights and soundbites:

  • Sequel to 20th Century Fox’s Borat is coming after Sacha Baron Cohen fulfills a movie contract with another studio. Murdoch saw Borat “about three times.”
  • Judith Regan? “Not a team player.” That Mickey Mantle novel that contributed to her ousting? A “pseudo, pornographic thing.”
  • New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg for President? “Really tempting.”
  • Dream Presidential candidate? Newt Gingrich.
  • On the new Fox business channel, announced yesterday: “Everything we do, CNBC will copy.”
  • New York Times‘ political bias? It’s “outrageously biased — just read Page One every day.”
  • Best quote: “I just want to live forever. I enjoy myself too much.”
