The Man Who Owns the News PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The Man Who Owns the News free pdf If Rupert Murdoch isn't making headlines, he's busy buying the media outlets that generate them. His News Corp holdings - from The New York Post, Fox News, The Australian, and most recently The Wall Street Journal, to name just a few - are vast, and his power is unrivalled. 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 Murdoch himself, his associates, and family, Wolff chronicles the astonishing growth of the $70 billion media kingdom. 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. He offers accounts of the Dow Jones takeover as well as plays for Yahoo! and Newsday as they've never been revealed before. 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 scale - and whose family is being groomed to carry his legacy into the future.
