Conrad Black has tried to kick Rupert Murdoch News Corp (Nasdaq:NWS) in the balls in the upcoming Vanity Fair edition. That’s the one with Angelina Jolie on the cover. Newsstands in NYC and LA Sep 1, iPad Sep 6. Conrad Black who is on his way back to jail complains about Rupert Murdoch’s bitch slaps that he has had to suffer. This from a man about to go back to finish up his sentence. Rupert Murdoch is spending a lot of time wondering how he can stay out of jail. The two guys supposedly have similar philosophies but would probably gladly have their butlers choke each other to death.
Conrad Black ever controversial wonders if he can survive on about $80 million. A few more years and then he will come out. I predict Barbara Amiel will have a cotillion like ball as Conrad Black thumbs his nose and does what ever he wants only restricted by his $80 million. Will it be one of those marvellous Vanity Fair parties. Rupert your invited of course hope you can make it.
Disclosure: George Gutowski writes from a caveat emptor perspective. I usually don’t give a rats ass what happens to these two guy’s on a personal level. There are just fascinating reads.I do not have positions in any stocks mentioned in this post. I have no plans to initiate new positions within the next 72 hours.
