Murdoch's World Thrives on Pop Culture
JOHN YDSTIE, host:
Good morning. I'm John Ydstie.
More evidence that Rupert Murdoch is taking over the world: Twelve 7-Eleven stores are being transformed into Kwik-E-Marts like the one seen on "The Simpsons," the cartoon show that airs on Murdoch's Fox Network. Regular products will make way for Krusty-O's cereal and Sprinklicious donuts - Homer's favorites. It's an attempt to promote the upcoming "Simpson's" movie, and we just gave them some free publicity. D'oh!
