How did the heir to a small Australian newspaper become the ruler of a global media empire? How has he altered the face of publishing, broadcasting, media consumption, and even politics? This program examines the career of Rupert Murdoch, focusing on his creation of highly successful media establishments at the expense, many say, of substance and journalistic integrity. Outlining Murdoch's upbringing and sink-or-swim appropriation of the family business, the film describes his entry into British publishing, the violent labor conflicts it touched off, and his eventual expansion into television and worldwide media. Expert commentary comes from Jon Fine of BusinessWeek, Emma Duncan of The Economist, and FAIR founder Jeff Cohen.
