Amid the News International scandal, details have remerged about the papal knighthood given to Rupert Murdoch back in 1998 after a donation to a Catholic organisation. Now debate is raging over whether to strip him of it:
In 1998 Rupert Murdoch was made a Knight Commander of St Gregory. He had apparently been recommended for the honour by Cardinal Roger Mahony, after giving money to a Church education fund. A year later he donated $10 million to help build Los Angeles Catholic cathedral.
Just another group/institution that lined up to pay homage to Rupert Murdoch.
