James Murdoch - son of News Corp. (NWS) chief Rupert and head of its European operations - turns down his $6M bonus.

    Accepting his bonus would be a pr nightmare considering his leadership saw the end of a 140 year old newspaper.

    The man probably wipes his rear end with crisp $100 bills, so $6 million is probably pocket change to him. However, it is good to see someone that isn't tone deaf to what is going on outside of their own billionaire reality.
