I just rediscovered this video clip of the playwright, Dennis Potter, giving Rupert Murdoch a good and well-deserved kicking back in 1994. Potter was dying of cancer, and he only had a few months to live, but he used his last energies to fight for artistic freedom against the “pollution” represented by Murdoch. Now seems the perfect time to air it again. It’s a pity the wrong people die before their time.
Oh, and he named his cancer, “Rupert.”
Update 16/7/11: Morfoubey has the full interview in his post on Dennis Potter.
