My Sochi Hotel Room Is Horrible!

I have filed an official complaint with the Russian government. Pootie-Poot has pissed off the wrong guy! You don’t treat people like this – especially important people. My room: The sheets, the wallpaper, everything about this place is uninhabitable. The bathroom: My God, these colors. The floor is not even heated and it gets pretty …

Rupert Murdoch’s Divorce

A fellow mogul is in pain today. Last night, I received a private TWEET from Rupert Murdoch – that after months of agonizing separation, he was filing for divorce from his wife Wendi Deng. Even though I couldn’t hear his voice, I could tell he was crying. I’ve known Rupert for many many years. More years …

Gay Moroccan Poetry Is Not Going To Save Our Publishing Business

Last night, I had dinner with Cyrus Weinstein - President of the Manka Bros. Publishing Group.

In Defense of Rupert Murdoch

Rupert Murdoch doesn’t have a lot of friends these days. It seems the only defenders he has are the people he pays to write puff pieces in the newspapers he owns. As a fellow media mogul, I feel I must defend my good friend Rupert. It is not easy to build an empire.  And it’s …

Book Club Meeting On Rupert Murdoch’s Boat

Good morning from the Canary Islands! I’m on the Manka Bros. Employee Yacht (The King Khan) which was paid for by all your hard work! As a reminder, because it is the “Employee Yacht” (paid for by a slight deduction from your weekly paychecks), one of you will be eligible to host your very own …

I Have Restarted My Monthly Book Club

Good morning. I’m back in office after a few days at an Indian [editor's change: Native American] Teepee sweat camp to get all the Sun Valley alcohol out of my system.  That Herb Allen really knows how to over serve his guests. About the only good thing to come out of that suck ass Sun …
