Mr. Murdoch is a media mogul. He doesn't hold sway in the global financial system like the folks at Goldman Sachs, or any of the houses responsible for the crash in 2008. He isn't someone of import to the economic ideology of political leaders. Especially since his papers have spied on said political leaders (among other more important people). In that context, he might actually be seen as expendable for very practical reasons.
Virtually everyone but the fanatic right stands to gain from his disenfranchisement. There is blood in the water now. This could be really interesting.
