Conrad Black Calls Rupert Murdoch a ‘Psychopath’ and Compares Him to Stalin

Former newspaper big shot Conrad Black does not think highly of Rupert Murdoch. You wouldn’t think Black, who just served three years in jail for fraud, was in any kind of position to judge someone, but that’s just what Black has done.

“He’s a psychopath,” Black told The Independent. “[He’s] like Stalin, except that he doesn’t kill people. I’m not suggesting he’s a homicidal psychopath — he just severs people out of his life like that.” Black then added that he considered Murdoch to be an “astonishingly cold man.”

Well, at least Murdoch doesn’t kill people. It shows he’s trying!
