UNITED KINGDOM – Evil villan Dr Claw has come out in defense of Rupert Murdoch after a parliamentary committee report insisted he was not fit to run an international corporation.
The leader of the international criminal organisation M.A.D. is among several well-appointed executives to send out statements supporting the 81-year-old News Corp CEO.
Murdoch has also been backed by members of the Anti-Justice League, the Galactic Empire’s Emperor Palpatine and Mr Burns, who branded the judgement as “cruel and usual as the working conditions in this power plant”.
Speaking from Springfield Nuclear Power Plant, Mr Burns declared the report finding to be “without basis” and declared Rupert Murdoch “as fit to run his large organisation as I am to run mine.”
Rupert Murdoch and his son James were heavily criticised in the parliamentary report, but Dr Claw urged members of Parliament not to forget the inspiration the Australian had provided to many others looking to start their own shadowy, international network of influence.
“I only got into this game because of Rupert. He made me believe I could maintain a global empire of borderline criminal influence all of my own.”
The reclusive megalomania from M.A.D said he had a lot in common with the reclusive megalomania from News Corp and took the verdict from an MP led inquiry “very personally”.
“This parliamentary board simply do not understand business. Sometimes you have to read the voicemails of murder victims to get the job done and Rupert knows that.”
“In fact, he was the one who taught it to me.”
Friends in high places
The Anti-Justice league also came to Murdoch’s support. Sworn enemy of Superman, Brainiac, who worked with Murdoch before going on to establish the team of super villains also attributed their success to the media mogul.
The extraterrestrial called him an “honourable” executive when it came to putting aside honour in the name of conquering.
“Everyone in the Anti-Justice league would trust him run things around here. In fact, with him in the team we would have conquered the world long ago.”
