A phone hacking scandal shakes the Murdoch empire. We’ll look to the future of News Corp.
Mayhem outside the British Parliament today as global media tycoon Rupert Murdoch arrived for questioning.
A huge mob of photographers shouting, pushing, clacking away. The elder Murdoch in his Range Rover. Scandal all around. Treated like Voldemort stepping into Hogwarts.
Murdoch’s News Corp. holdings in the UK are at the heart of an uproar over widespread phone hacking, police corruption, compromised politicians. The sense of a nation compromised, corrupted. What does it mean for News Corp. worldwide?
This hour On Point: Murdoch’s empire now, from The Times of London to Fox News.
