News Corp has hired a new treasure to fulfill the role of general counsel, a man with a name you just couldn't make up for this kind of challenge (via NY Times):
Gerson Zweifach, a partner at Williams & Connolly. In his own words, a carefully prepared statement summarising just why he's so thrilled to be the newest Murdoch cheerleader (and proof in itself of why he deserves it):
"I could not be more thrilled to join the leader in global media at such a pivotal time in its history. It would be hard to imagine a more compelling opportunity to have far-reaching impact across a variety of legal issues and challenges."
