Jane Fonda Torches The Idea Of Rupert Murdoch Buying Time Warner


Jane Fonda shouldn't expect any Christmas cards from Rupert Murdoch this year after she trashed his attempts to buy media giant Time Warner.

“I think it would be a catastrophe,” Fonda told The Wrap on Wednesday. "If that happens I'm going to be so angry at the FCC. They cannot let that happen...his news outlets do things that are unconscionable. And it just cannot happen that he becomes that much of a dominant force in American media.”

Tell us what you really think, Jane! (Can we call you Jane? It feels weird. Ms. Fonda, maybe?)

Ironically, the acting legend plays a rather Murdoch-esque media tycoon on "The Newsroom," though she'd probably put her character closer to her former husband Ted Turner. Leona Lansing would probably cherish the thought of scooping up a huge slice of the corporate pie like Time Warner. Whether she'd pay upwards of $80 billion, as Murdoch is prepared to do, is another matter.
