Overview

He came, he built, he bullied, he bought—all while creating the world’s most powerful media empire. But at the age of 80, with his underlings ensnared in a perilous and very public phone-hacking scandal, News Corp. chairman Rupert Murdoch saw his empire begin to totter.

Collected here in this no-holds-barred Vanity Fair e-book are 20 stories from the pages of the magazine, tracing the rise of the ultimate media baron and illuminating the roots of his current predicament. Rupert Murdoch: The Master Mogul of Fleet Street paints a truly intimate portrait of Murdoch from his days commanding tabloids on London’s Fleet Street to his cunning maneuvers on Wall Street, from his acquisition of 20th Century Fox to his launch of Fox News. These classic, deeply reported stories from Vanity Fair—by Bryan Burrough, Frank DiGiacomo, Sarah Ellison, Edward Klein, Sarah Lyall, Kim Masters, Andrew Neil, Judith Newman, John Ortved, William Shawcross, James Verini, Garry Wills, James Wolcott, and Michael Wolff—contain narratives of fortune and folly, bruising competition and blind ambition, family struggles and corporate intrigue. This compendium reinforces the recent observation of Reuters.com: “Vanity Fair has…become the home of the best financial journalism in the world of magazines.”
