If Rupert Murdoch isnâ€™t making headlines, heâ€™s busy buying
the media outlets that generate the headlines. His News
Corp. holdingsâ€”from the New York Post, Fox News, and most
recently The Wall Street Journal, to name just a fewâ€”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, and his
associates and family, Wolff chronicles the astonishing
growth of Murdoch's $70 billion media kingdom. In intimate
detail, he probes the Murdoch family dynasty, from the
battles that have threatened to destroy it to the
reconciliations that seem to only make it stronger. Drawing
upon hundreds of hours of interviews, he offers accounts of
the Dow Jones takeover as well as plays for Yahoo! and
Newsday as theyâ€™ve never been revealed before.
Written in the irresistible stye that only an award-winning
columnist for Vanity Fair can deliver, The Man Who Owns the
News offers an exclusive glimpse into a man who wields
extraordinary power and influence in the media on a
worldwide scaleâ€”and whose family is being groomed to carry
his legacy into the future.
