Murdoch unfit to do anything

This is today's "Breaking News" on BBC News:
Rupert Murdoch "is not a fit person to exercise the stewardship of a major international company"
Is this news to anyone? I know it's following an official report by a bunch of UK MPs (all of whom generally have a rather nasty reputation these days). I thought everyone realised Rupert was a bit of a nutter a long, long time ago.

EDIT: I also noticed that CNN did exactly the same thing. Guys, seriously, it may be a slow news day but there's no need to start "breaking news" every little thing. Especially if the "news" is something everyone knew for years, and years, and years...!

EDIT 2: Huffington Post just put up extracts from an internal memo from the dark evil, Rupert, himself to his employees about the earlier report.
"I recognize that for all of us – myself in particular – it is difficult to read many of the report’s findings. But we have done the most difficult part, which has been to take a long, hard and honest look at our past mistakes. There is no easy way around this, but I am proud to say that we have been working hard to put things right."
