Murdoch's Politics: How One Man's Thirst for Wealth and Power Shapes Our World

Murdoch's Politics: How One Man's Thirst for Wealth and Power Shapes Our World Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Rupert Murdoch's News Corporation is the most powerful media organization in the world. Murdoch's commercial success is obvious, but less well understood is his successful pursuit of political goals, using News Corp as his vehicle. David McKnight tracks Murdoch's influence, from his support for Reagan and Thatcher, to his attacks on Barack Obama and the Gordon Brown government. He examines the secretive corporate culture of News Corp: its private political seminars for editors, its sponsorship of think tanks, and its recurring editorial campaigns around the world. Its success is reflected in the fact that the campaigns are familiar to us all: small government and market deregulation, skepticism on climate change, support for neo-conservative adventures such as Iraq and criticism of all things "liberal." While the phone hacking crisis and possible bribery charges have tarnished his reputation, Rupert Murdoch's influence is far from finished.

Synopsis:

A historical and political analysis of the future of education in today's digital world of technological transformation and revolution.

He examines the secretive corporate culture of News Corporation: its private political seminars for editors, its support for think tanks and its global campaigns on issues like Iraq and climate change.

Including analysis of the phone hacking crisis, possible bribery charges and Murdoch's appearance at the Leveson enquiry, this book is a highly topical study of one of the most influential and controversial figures of the modern age.
