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.
Outfoxedexamines 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
Shock G, the talented front man, from the Oakland based group Digital Underground, calls it quits. Perhaps, this makes a larger statement about the pressures of doing something you love with (sometimes) little reciprocation.
"I'm retiring from all forms of studio work and song writing.
My reasons for retiring are: 1. I get no satisfaction or fullfillment from it anymore. It doesn't make me happy. On the contrary, it depresses me. Normally I'm not depressed, it's only surrounding the studio. I'm happy when I'm away from the studio.
2. Can't make a living at it. 90% of the studio work I've done in the last 6 years has all been either for free or for peanuts, and hasn't generated any income since.

This movie focuses on Robert Moog, who was responsible for designing and building theremins in the 1940's. It was, however, the development of the Moog synthesizer, an analog instrument with electronic components, that made the moog name synonymous with electronic music.
Haven't had a chance to watch this one yet, but it looks to be a good introduction to the world of electronic instruments, and the man behind the music.
