9020: Adweek On The Murdochalypse.
Given Adweek Editorial Director Michael Wolff’s interest in media over advertising—as well as his authorship of a Rupert Murdoch biography—the publication is dedicating lots of editorial space to examining the News of the World scandal. A series of videos allows Wolff to offer his two cents, while also probably serving as casting auditions for cable news sources seeking pseudo-expert commentators. The overly dramatic collection includes Michael Wolff on the Murdochalypse, Goodbye Rebekah and Michael Wolff on the Latest Murdoch Casualty. Yo, Mikey, lighten up—you’re not a war correspondent reporting from a battle zone.
