Rupert Murdoch Serenaded: “You Hired Glenn Beck to Ruin the Republicans”

The Wall Street Journal’s All Things D Conference is going on in Carlsband, California this week. Look for coverage from Fox Business Network’s Brian Sullivan. He’ll be interviewing Microsoft’s Steve Ballmer, Dallas mavericks owner [and Bill O'Reilly nemesis] Mark Cuban and chief Twitterers Evan Williams and Biz Stone.

CNBC is also covering today with Jim Goldman and Julia Boorstin. Interestingly, while News Corp. owns The Wall Street Journal and FBN, the WSJ continues its partnership deal with CNBC – a deal brokered before Rupert Murdoch bought Dow Jones.

And speaking of Mr. Murdoch, he was serenaded…or rather roasted… last night by singer-songwriter Jill Sobule, who wrote and performed a song called “Oh Rupert” which included the line, “You said you’ve got a secret plan / You Hired Glenn Beck to Ruin the Republicans.”
