In light of yesterday's critical parliamentary report, which described their boss as "not a fit person" to run a company, the News Corp. board of directors has unanimously "announced its full confidence in Rupert Murdoch's fitness and support for his continuing to lead News Corporation into the future as its Chairman and CEO."
