Working for Rupert Murdoch

(Desiderata)
by John Carr. I worked for News Corporation for about two and a half years, until the end of 2009. At first I gloried in the title of Vice President of MySpace, Safety and Security, Europe. Rupert Murdoch Murdoch completely rejected a laissez faire philosophy in relation to content appearing on his site. The company insisted on using a blocking list to prevent anybody posting links to any web sites known to contain child abuse images. They helped develop a US-wide system which allowed MySpace to seek out anyone with a conviction for sex offences and kick them off.
