Idiosyncratic brilliance, 5 Dec 2011
This superb account of the Murdoch empire, brought right up to date, is an exciting and scholarly read. It tells of how Murdoch has systematically traded media reporting for power and monopoly. It breaks the myths - for example that he is a guru of tabloid circulation, that he is anti-establishment, that he is a news hound - and shows the news empire for what it is: a tyrant's tool.
