Excellent column! Congrats on the promotion. All of us here at CM knew you could do it! We'll probably see you on "Fox and Friends" soon!

Congratulations!

If I haven't mentioned it already .... I WANT YOUR JOB. I don't think it gets any better.

Paul Motter September 27th, 2011 11:52 AM

Thank you to all of you. I think most of you know me as fiscally conservative and socially unbiased (liberal would be too strong a word).

I doubt I will be doing any political writing, but sometimes I would certainly like to...

By the way - I heard that Sarah Palin refuses to do a cruise (she has been asked), but the Fox commentators usually do one every year. Biily Kristol "discovered" Palin on a cruise to Alaska and recommended her to McCain (or so the story goes).

Now, I'm not so sure how I feel about that, personally, but it isn't my place to say.

I don't know about Barbara Boxer, but maybe we'll get Juan Williams.

Fox is part of the Murdoch empire?

Yes, as far as I know. That story has gotten far less play here in the states (even with the so-called liberal media) than it has in the U.K.

Annie - I was going to say, cruising in the U.K. is still young, you could establish yourself as a cruise reporter now. Get in early - who knows maybe you will have my job someday.

That being said, I have cruised with John Honeywell of the Guardian many times on press trips. He is a nice guy.

I have retired (early) and plan to stay that way :)

You probably know in the UK - the Murdoch Empire is a dirty word - none of my family and friends will allow any of his publications or TV programmes in their homes.

Paul... congratulations on the upgrade. Sure you'll get your thoughts out to a much wider audience.

Pretty soon you'll be leading a charge to remove taxes from cruise fares :mrgreen:

Snoozeman September 27th, 2011 03:32 PM

Congratulations Paul....looking forward to seeing them with a wider audience!

Thank you to all of you...

MY mistake, it was the Queen of Oakville who wants my job, not Annie. Sorry I mis-read that.

I know the Murdoch thing hit really hard in the U.K. but I don't think a lot of Americans understand how big a publishing empire he owns.

He has a reputation as something of a sensationalist, celebrity stalker, I guess.

I think the mainstream media tried their best to play the story up here in the U.S. but it just didn't get any traction.

I guess I could make the argument that what he did was just in keeping with the stupidity of people to go on Facebook and tell the entire world their entire lives. Do any of us have any privacy anymore?

(Annie, that would be "priv -a-see" for you, not "pry-va-see.")

anniegb September 28th, 2011 05:33 AM

Paul

It was not the phone hacking of celebrities that angered the UK.

It was the hacking of the voicemail messages of a murdered teenager - which tipped the balance.

Sienna Miller et al 's voicemail - not interested.

Paul, That is great and I loved your column. Your in very good company.
