Steve Jobs: Fox News a Destructive Force


For those who have not read the new Steve Jobs Book by Walter Isaacson heres an excerpt from it regarding Steve Jobs and Rupert Murdoch's comunications which started between them of adding content for the iPad. Here is Jobs view of Fox news:

“Steve Jobs pressed Murdoch on Fox News, arguing that the network was destructive to the nation and harmful to Murdoch’s reputation: ”You’re blowing it with Fox News,’ Jobs told him over dinner. ‘The axis today is not liberal and conservative, the axis is constructive-destructive, and you’ve cast your lot with the destructive people. Fox has become an incredibly destructive force in our society. You can be better, and this is going to be your legacy if you’re not careful.’ Jobs said he thought Murdoch did not really like how far Fox had gone. ‘Rupert’s a builder, not a tearer-downer,’ he said. ‘I’ve had some meetings with James, and I think he agrees with me. I can just tell.’ Murdoch later said he was used to people like Jobs complaining about Fox. ‘He’s got sort of a left-wing view on this,’ he said.”

Apple News Online likes this reply best from a fellow reader of Apple News: 
"Jobs is way off base here. The destructive force in the US are labor unions and liberals. They are going all out to communize the US, take away private property, rights, destroy the constitution, and brain wash our kids. No way. Jobs wife is a huge liberal. Figures. Thank God for Fox News and the internet. Screw the garbage “Lame Stream Media”. Those days are over. We’re on to them. They don’t control the message-propaganda any more."
Besides Job's world view we are in aggreement of his brilliance regarding Apple, Technology and some Social Views.
