It has been two years since we last caught up with Rupert Murdoch at one of his annual meetings in the US, but with some crowd-sourced funding underway, it now looks like November 10 will be a double-header to remember.

Catching up with Rupert at his Adelaide AGM was an annual affair for six years from 1999 until 2004. The history of Rupert’s abandonment of News Corp’s Australian domicile goes back to when shareholders voted down an options issue to directors at the 2003 AGM.
