News finally reached Blather.net that our beloved Australian pin-up icon Rupert “I think it would be fun to run a newspaper” Murdoch has taken over National Geographic magazine, for all intents and purposes. D’internet, of course, has reacted, with umpteen redesigned Nat Geo covers that speculate on a rather more Fox News editorial direction rather than the dry, boring and altogether too honest house style that Nat Geo has been relying on since 1988. Get over it, kids. The question is, why did Nat Geo sell up? The answer? MONEY.
