Want To Block Websites Owned By Rupert Murdoch, There’s An App For That

Jul 20 2011 Published by under Uncategorized

If you are using Google Chrome, there is a new app that will allow you to block all websites owned by News Corp.

Extensions to block undesirable things are on the Internet are nothing new. For years people have been blocking ads or any other Internet annoyances, but Google Chrome is providing users the ability to take their blocking preferences to a whole other level. If you are sick and tired of Derek Jeter, there is the Jeter Filter.

If the News Corp hacking scandal has so enraged you, or if you are sick of the bias of Fox News and don’t want to add to their profits, there is the Murdoch Block. The app does exactly what its name suggests. It blocks all the websites owned by News Corp from appearing on your browser. The list of blocked websites is customizable in case you want to make sure that you never visit Fox News.com again, but still want your Hulu.

Here is a mostly complete list of all the websites Murdoch’s News Corp owns:

Hulu and WebMD would likely be the most missed sites on that list, but principle involves sacrifice. If you are a Google Chrome user and you want send a message to News Corp, install the Murdoch Block and you can enjoy an Internet experience that is totally free of the influence of Rupert Murdoch.
