Murdoch's World

David Folkenflik's new book about the Rupert Murdoch media empire, Murdoch's World: The Last of the Old Media Empires (Perseus Books, 2013), is already stirring up comment. In particular, his account of the way in which Robert Thomson, then managing editor of the Wall Street Journal, tried to keep a lid on accounts of News of the World's phone hacking from hitting the pages of the WSJ is particularly interesting. Individuals at the WSJ declined to participate in the book.

 

Early reviews here from the Los Angeles Times, Roy Greenslade's Blog. NPR interview with Mr. Folkenflik here.
