It reminds me a bit of the scene from The Godfather in which Don Corleone has a meeting with Sollozzo "The Turk" so that Sollozzo can pitch the idea of the Don going financing his drug dealing business and shielding it from scrutiny by the law. Sollozzo says:
"I need, Don Corleone, all of those politicians that you carry around in your pocket, like so many nickels and dimes."
I guess Murdoch has a similar collection of nickels and dimes.

the Australian government seeking to pass laws making Facebook pay news providers for news provided on their platform.
That's certainly not something I'd be in favor of.

A Don Corleone would be preferable to Murdoch - at least the "little people" in the Don's jurisdiction were protected.
