Murdoch being just the latest crooked CEO to use the old "Sergeant Shultz" act to avoid questions, lie, and attempt to soften opinions of himself.
Curtis – Nope, just the crooked ones and their shills. The very ones you love so much. Admit it.
Well, when CEOs are talking about why they’re paid thousands of times what their company’s workers are paid, they often mention that part of that salary is in recognition of the "risk" they take – after all, the buck stops there, the CEO is ultimately responsible for anything that goes wrong in the company, yada yada yada.
But oddly, all that "the buck stops here" mentality goes out the window the instant something actually DOES go wrong. Suddenly the CEOs are just innocent bystanders, victims to the corruption of their companies. Funny how that changes.
