RUPERT THE RED NOSED RAIDER, BOUGHT HIMSELF A BASEBALL TEAM

          RUPERT MURDOCH is profiled by Diane Shah in LOS ANGELES
     magazine under the header "Will Rupert Buy L.A.?"  The
     Dodgers purchase "will be no more than a decimal point in
     Murdoch's creeping global hegemony. ... Still, what makes
     the Dodgers acquisition different from other Murdoch
     conquests is that he lives here."  Shah adds that "one can't
     help but wonder what Murdoch and his $25 billion News Corp.
     portfolio might mean to us.  Will he be a good corporate
     citizen, sprucing up the city and erecting various wings --
     or a jet-propelled carpetbagger?" (LOS ANGELES, 12/97).
