Roger Taylor takes on Murdoch

People are starting to fight back against the Murdoch empire, using whatever they're good at to land jabs on the already-reeling business. Or, possibly, they're running quite fast to leap onto a bandwagon that's rolling.

Roger Taylor - the one out of Queen and not the one out of Duran Duran - has done this:

What's interesting is not so much the anti-Murdoch polemic (why didn't you say this last month, for example, Rog?) as the video he's made for it. All the cash at his disposal, and he's produced something that wouldn't look out of place for a fan-made clip to support an early Queen b-side?

I can't defend the video, which is clearly a bit of a rush job, but the song is a re-worked version of one he released quite some time ago - in the mid-90s in fact - so it's probably fairer to sat that Taylor had nailed his colours to the anti-Murdoch mast before many of the Twitterati had even realised that there was a bandwagon upon which to jump.
