In related news:

I highly recommend the movie "Outfoxed" if you are interested in Murdoch's business practices. The movie focuses on the power of the media, and specifically Fox News, as a central cog in the propaganda machine.

Outfoxed examines how media empires, led by Rupert Murdoch's Fox News, have been running a "race to the bottom" in television news. This film provides an in-depth look at Fox News and the dangers of ever-enlarging corporations taking control of the public's right to know. The film explores Murdoch's burgeoning kingdom and the impact on society when a broad swath of media is controlled by one person."

Bonus fact: Murdoch's son, James, went on to form a small label by the name of Rawkus in 1996
