about this book

By Michael Wolff, one of the nation’s most influential writers about media, culture, and politics, The Man Who Owns the News offers an unprecedented access to Rupert Murdoch himself, and his associates and family. In intimate detail, Wolff chronicles the astonishing growth of Murdoch's $70 billion media kingdom and 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 also offers accounts of the Dow Jones takeover as well as plays for Yahoo! and Newsday.
