Scrappy outsider turns modest newspaper business into international media conglomerate. Ambition turns to hubris. Mogul dramatically falls from grace. Before Murdoch came Robert Maxwell and Conrad Black, both of whose careers at the top of the British media establishment ended in disgrace. (AP Photo/Kiichiro Sato, File)

It's no secret that Conrad Black is no fan of Barack Obama and isn't exactly thrilled by the President's re-election on Tuesday. He even wrote an essay for us that contains more than a few of the Lord's patented turns-of-phrase.

On Thursday morning, CBC's The Current did us one better by getting five-year-old Mitchell Cait-Goldenthal to read excerpts from Black's essay.

First, of all, well done Mitchell. Black is not an easy read and we have to commend your parents and teachers for your advanced reading skills.

Second, dear reader, you really haven't lived until you've heard an adorable kid say the words "fiscal blunderbuss" and quote Winston Churchill.

Listen to Mitchell's inspired reading.

And read Conrad Black's full missive on Obama's vexing re-election.
