Guardian celebrates Murdoch at 80, they like his take on journalism

Today the Media Guardian is all about Rupert Murdoch, following Peter Preston on Sunday

Anyone who supports the losses from so much print cannot be all bad.

Hardly any mention of MySpace. But a welcome for the idea of news for the iPad, back to broadcast as an intent.

I think MySpace is still ok for most music bands. The trouble is that Murdoch has not been a good public presenter for where MySpace could have gone. When he argues that only professional journalism has any value, then the tracks from unknown bands are not an obvious fit, even if they are well known a few months later.

Similarly the Guardian web presence without Guardian Talk may not fare so well. Former Guardian readers may go somewhere else. Just my guess.
