Enemies many different agendas, but worst old toffs and right wingers who still want last century's status quo with their monoplies.

Predictably, “Faux News” haters latched on to Murdoch’s mention of “right-wingers, but his tweets follow piracy allegations against NDS, a subsidiary of News Corp:

The Australian Financial Review, or AFR, claimed in a report on Wednesday that NDS encouraged and facilitated piracy of pay television companies such as Australian pay television companies Foxtel and Austar United Communications Ltd (AUN.AU). The AFR report followed a report alleging similar practices by NDS in a BBC Panorama program.

@rupertmurdoch Wow, have you never watched Fox News, read the Oz or the Telregraph? Right Wingers & Toffs are just what NewsCorp panders to.
