Lachlan, Rupert and James Murdoch

As the Australian football grand finals beckoned late last week, the Murdoch-controlled 21st Century Fox released its 2016-17 proxy statement in the US. It’s more of the same with another hostile shareholder resolution aimed at dismantling the Murdoch family gerrymander through the dual-class share structure.

And it’s more of the same with the three Murdoch men -- Rupert and his only sons, James and Lachlan -- pocketing another US$70 million in salary and bonuses between them.
