Rupert Murdoch’s news Corp will acquire Beliefnet the largest (so they claim) spiritual website. It seems that big American business— one of the few top wolves of big American Business— has decided to develop a whole new demographic for media and advertising, the “multi-faith” communities. Murdoch has not exactly been praised for his objective journalism, as seen through his acquisition in London and the chaffing that has occurred in New York with the WSJ. Just think of the wonderful opportunity he has to skew information in the world of religious faith! Perhaps I am being cynical. Maybe he intends to help bridge the religious/cultural differences in our world. To put an end to the wars that are ravaging countries like Iraq and Lebanon. I wonder if he will bring his four horsemen?
