Murdoch the Muppet

The Observer's Matt Chaban is sniffing out this whole James Murdoch/Muppet Mansion rumor thing, and he's uncovered another clue. A name on the deed for the $23 million Upper East Side townhouse (once owned by Jim Henson) is Clare Sweeney, Rupert Murdoch's assistant. And the speed at which she hung up the phone on Chaban definitely makes it seem like something is up. Rupe paid $44 million for his triplex at 834 Fifth Avenue, so $23 million sounds about right for one of his boys. [NYO]
