by Michael Wolff
Our Price: $26.00 (including postage)
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. 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 they’ve never been revealed before.
This is an opportunity to see and hear one of the most vivid, powerful, unusual, menacing and captivating men of the age. One of the central figures of our times. Although Murdoch and News Corp have offered Wolff access, this is not in any way an authorised or partisan tale, nothing is off limits.
