Jan Masaryk on Rupert Murdoch

Dictators are rulers who always look good until the last ten minutes.
At least I think it was Jan Masaryk. Some people attribute the quote to his father Tomas Masaryk, but - either way - I cannot find where it was said.

I should also admit that I came across this quotation in the introduction to Gideon Haigh's Ashes 2011, where he applies it to the sudden collapse of Australian supremacy in cricket.
