And the powerful Roman catholic, Fascist, former president of Spain, and personal friend of King Juan Carlos of Spain, José María Aznar is current President (of the board of directors). He is the one Hugo Chavez called a Fascist and King Juan Carlos told Hugo to "shut up".
José María Aznar: Aznar has been a Distinguished Scholar at the Edmund A. Walsh School of Georgetown University since 2004 ~Link
- Aznar in 1999 had urged President Clinton to bomb Serbian radio and television
- Aznar's government, along with the Bush administration, openly backed the April 2002 military coup against Chavez (Which probably had several psychological functions on the nations involved because Hugo Chavez is one of them as far as I know. See pics on this page.)
- Aznar actively participated in the “illegal” and brutal invasion of Iraq, on the basis of false assertions about weapons of mass destruction.
Another member of the Board is, Andrew Stephen Bower Knight (born 1 November 1939 in England) is a journalist, editor, and media baron.
He was educated at the Roman Catholic school Ampleforth College, where he was appointed Head Boy, and was awarded an Exhibition to Balliol College, Oxford (MA, Modern History).
Director of Rothschild Investment Trust Capital Partners plc since 1997
Interesting and strange connection: Another NewsCorp board member Rod Paige, (2nd Link)was sitting with George W. Bush at the Emma E. Booker Elementary School in Sarasota, Florida, when Bush received the news that a second plane had hit the World Trade Center in the September 11, 2001 attacks.
