Can News Corp pay a special dividend when the demand for cash to pay compensation and fines is not known?
Err, what special dividend is that? As he himself points out:
News Corp has announced plans to buy back $5bn (£3.2bn) of its shares in an attempt to halt the slide in value of Rupert Murdoch’s media empire.
So there you have it. The man who would remake the global financial system in his own image cannot tell the difference between a dividend, special or not, and a share buyback.
Why is anyone at all paying attention to his prognostications?
