As The Rupert Turns

Never a dull moment in the soap opera that is Rupert Murdoch's life. This past weekend, according to the Daily Mail, Rupert was banned from attending the 50th birthday party of his son-in-law.

The Freud party snub came after Mr Murdoch had Mr Blair barred from attending a media summit in the US after finding a note suggesting Ms Deng had a ‘crush’ on him and discovering the pair had spent weekends at Mr Murdoch’s homes without his knowledge. Mr Blair and wife Cherie were star guests at Mr Freud’s celebrity-studded party at his Oxfordshire mansion, with his father-in-law conspicuously absent.

I do think it's somehow fitting that Rupert's son-in-law has the last name Freud.
