And he can't stand Conrad Black either:
This just in: Conrad Black has been sentenced to six and a half years in prison for his role in "misappropriating" (which is Rich People for "stealing") millions of dollars from the Hollinger newspaper empire, and for obstructing justice by allowing certain documents, which would have determined whether or not he was guilty of the nine charges he managed to evade (including racketeering), to "disappear."
For you non-Canadians out there, Conrad Black is our Rupert Murdoch, except with added imperial douchebaggery -- when Conrad found out he couldn't become Lord Black of Crossharbour because Canadian citizens are forbidden from accepting British peerages, he threw a massive hissy fit and renounced his Canadian citizenship in 2001. (Don't let the door, etc.) Then he tried to get it back again last year. Now he's been sentenced to 78 months in an American jail. Time to break out the bubbly -- schadenfreude never tasted so sweet.
