Who is Rupert Murdoch?
Rupert Murdoch is now a trending topics on the net. He is up because of his well known latest scandal, phone-hacking scandal. But who is he actually? He is a media mogul and three times listed in Times 100 most influential people. Yes, he is so influential because his media are globalized. You could find his media company in all the continent. Wikipedia have everything about him.
Beginning with one newspaper in Adelaide, Murdoch acquired and started other publications in his native Australia before expanding News Corp into the United Kingdom, United States and Asian media markets. Although it was in Australia in the late 1950s that he first dabbled in television, he later sold these assets, and News Corp’s Australian current media interests (still mainly in print) are restricted by cross-media ownership rules. Murdoch’s first permanent foray into TV was in the USA, where he created Fox Broadcasting Company in 1986. In the 2000s, he became a leading investor in satellite television, the film industry and the Internet, and purchased a respected business newspaper, The Wall Street Journal.
