Someone Hid a ‘Murdoch Is Evil’ Message in the Kids’ Crossword at Murdoch’s Own Paper

Someone is sooooo fired today.

Seems that a wiseass at the Sunday Telegraph decided to convey his or her feelings about publisher/employer/supervillain Rupert Murdoch by hiding a “Murdoch is evil” message in the kids’ crossword puzzle at the back of the paper and spelling it backwards to avoid getting caught.

We’re a little surprised that a detail-oriented snoop with a fondness for kids’ wordplay found the message, but then some 70′s genius was brilliant enough to play “Stairway to Heaven” backwards, too. We have a feeling this newer discovery was not preceded by three massive bong rips, but what do we know?

Many journalists are very amused by the fact that Murdoch’s own employees dislike him so very much, but there might just be a few safer ways of stating one’s displeasure. Maybe the guilty party should just vent on Facebook next time.
