Defending the People from the Media...

I thought this was sort of funny:
In his opening statement in the Commons debate on News Corporation, Ed Miliband, the leader of the opposition Labour Party, called the decision by Rupert Murdoch???s media company to abandon a $12 billion bid for outright control of BSkyB, a satellite television network, ???a victory for Parliament.???

Speaking for the government, George Young of the Conservative Party echoed that comment and said that the pressure piled on News Corporation by members of Parliament proves that the House of Commons has proven itself ???a champion of the people.???
