Liberal journalists are fine with media moguls – unless the mogul happens to not be a fellow liberal. When word got out in July that 21st Century Fox owner Rupert Murdoch had made an offer to purchase Time Warner, the parent company for Warner Brothers, HBO and CNN, the media panicked.

Liberal loudmouths Bill Maher, who has a show on HBO and would be impacted by a Murdoch buy, and Jane Fonda, the actress and ex-wife of CNN’s founder, both expressed outrage. Maher called it “a terrible price to pay.” Vox.com, the self-proclaimed news platform started by former Washington Post wonder boy Ezra Klein, also criticized the proposed deal and tastelessly attacked Murdoch himself.
