The money did not influence the outcome of the trial. It merely paid for lawyers that had a winning argument already. What is immoral about that?
Not only do I agree that these phrases aren't necessarily meaningless because they were not intended to be hold meaning, but IIRC the 'researcher' said the average ratings for these statements were about ~2.3/5 or "relatively profound" - something that strikes me as merely being worth pause, rather than this genius scholar's successful trickery in getting plebs to believe in like, totally fake philosophy that he like, didn't even muse on.
I'm really not happy about this either, and fake quotes are usually quite obvious, but as a title here it ends up being just as dishonest as cheeky, and does little credit to the cause as such.
I didn't see any quote by Murdoch in the article.
