This Week's Toon: News Corp's Wedding Pride

Gay City News of New York City reports that a subsidiary of Rupert Murdoch's staunchly conservative News Corporation smells financial opportunity in them thar gay nuptuals in the Empire State:

While the New York Post, the conservative tabloid owned by Rupert Murdoch’s News Corporation, opposed gay marriage in an editorial and gave scant coverage to the June 24 state Senate vote that enacted that law, a second News Corporation unit in New York City is selling pricey ad space in the inaugural issue of "Wedding Pride: The Magazine for Gay and Lesbian Wedding Planning."

CNG Publications is a unit of the Community Newspaper Group, which puts out a number of local newspapers in the New York metropolitan area. CNG is owned by News Corp., which bought out previously independent papers such as the Brooklyn Paper and Times Ledger.

I can see Joseph Cotten storming out of Orson Welles' office right about now.
