Altice to buy CablevisionAltice, a European telecom company controlled by billionaire Patrick Drahi, has agreed to buy U.S. cable operator Cablevision in a deal valued at $17.7 billion, according to a person familiar with their talks.

Dan Rather’s Moment of ‘Truth’: The Movie CBS and George W. Bush Don’t Want You to See

Murdoch is a notorious climate change denier, and his family's Fox media empire is the world's primary source of global warming misinformation. Which would be no big deal here, I guess, were it not for the fact that the National Geographic Society's mission includes giving grants to scientists.

Or had you forgotten? Here's a refresh for you, a fun little interview with Murdoch on his climate change views.
