BSkyB alone (let alone Murdoch's vast press and publishing empire - Times, Sun, HarperCollins etc.) spent £140m on marketing last year or 4% of turnover, in contrast the government only spent 0.2% of its total expenditure on PR (less in actual terms than Proctor & Gamble).
So who is spinning, when The Sun criticises local government over its PR spend? What services and benefits does Murdoch provide for his rip-off £42 a month for US imports and footy on Sky?
We know the Sun is despicable - 'pure evil' you could say for calling for social workers to be sacked over Shannon Mathews and baby P, while Sun journalists were virtually camped out in Mathews home for FOUR months while printing 'her story' and didn't spot the 'sickening conditions' they later claimed were easy to spot. Sack the Sun is all I can say. Don't buy it or the Times or Sky TV.
