The James Murdoch Rumor Mill Begins to Churn

Yesterday FishbowlNY told you about James Murdoch getting promoted and moving to the city. It’s a big announcement, so of course, New York media wants to play the guessing game.

Adweek takes a stab at why Murdoch was promoted with “What’s The Real Reason for James Murdoch’s Promotion?” And then there’s The New York Observer, who asks “The Muppet Manse Isn’t For Jesse, But What About James?” That piece ponders the theory that the house purchased by Jessse Angelo is actually new digs for Murdoch.

However, as we’ve frustratingly mentioned, headlines that ask questions never actually provide an answer in the piece, so neither Adweek or the Observer deliver any goods.

But stay tuned! We hear tomorrow’s Murdoch Rumors hit hard, with headlines like “Will James Murdoch Wear Nice Shoes?” and “James Murdoch: Frosted Flakes Hater?”
