About this product
- DescriptionRupert Murdoch's News Corporation is the most powerful media organisation in the world. Murdoch's commercial success is obvious, but less well understood is his successful pursuit of political goals, using News Corporation as his vehicle. In Murdoch's Politics David McKnight tracks Murdoch's influence, from his support for Reagan and Thatcher, his deal with Tony Blair and attacks on Barack Obama. 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.
- Author BiographyDavid McKnight is an associate professor at the Journalism and Media Research Centre at the University of New South Wales, Australia. He is the award-winning author of Beyond Right and Left: New Politics and the Culture War (2005) and worked as a journalist at the Sydney Morning Herald and ABC TV's prestigious investigative programme Four Corners.
