The Man Who Owns the News
[inside the Secret World of Rupert Murdoch]Audiobook CD - 2008
If Rupert Murdoch isn't making headlines, he's busy buying the media outlets that generate the headlines. His News Corp. holdings -- from the New York Post, Fox News, and most recently the Wall Street Journal, to name just a few -- are vast and his power is unrivaled. So what makes a man like this tick? Michael Wolff gives us the definitive answer in The Man Who Owns the News. With unprecedented access to Rupert Murdoch himself, his associates, and his family, Wolff chronicles the astonishing growth of the mogul's giant media kingdom. In intimate detail, he describes Murdoch as Machiavellian titan, overbearing (but loving) father, love-struck husband (of a woman forty year his junior), and the most cynical and brilliant newsman who has ever lived. Drawing upon hundreds of hours of interviews, Wolff offers accounts of the Dow Jones takeover as they've never been revealed before.
