This combination business biography, corporate history, and family saga chronicles the rise of Australian-born media mogul Rupert Murdoch, whose vast media empire started with newspapers and expanded to media worldwide. When he embarked on his project, author Michael Wolff had Murdoch's approval, which granted him unprecedented access to papers and people close to Murdoch. THE MAN WHO OWNS THE NEWS exposes family squabbles, and discusses behind-the-scenes relations between Murdoch and some of his closest associates. Wolff explores whether there is a gap between Murdoch's world view and the positions taken by some of his more controversial, and high profile, companies, which include Fox News as well as the Wall Street Journal.
