Ralph 'n Rupert

Friday, July 16, 2004

Presidential candidate and anti-corporate crusader Ralph Nader's new book hit stores this month, courtesy of publishing house HarperCollins. The irony is that HarperCollins is owned by Rupert Murdoch, the media mogul who does not hesitate to use his media organs to promote Republican causes. Is HarperCollins admirably backing books that fly in the face of its owner's politics? Or is Murdoch another one of the powerful Republicans cynically supporting Nader to re-route votes from John Kerry? Bob talks to Salon senior writer Eric Boehlert.
