Rupert Murdoch’s sprawling media empire

Text by FRANCE 24

Latest update : 2011-07-14

Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp is a unique media conglomerate, with hundreds of brands all over the world. As its British subsidiary reels from a sprawling phone-hacking scandal, FRANCE 24 takes a closer look at the controversial media empire.

Will the highly regarded Wall Street Journal take the rap for the unorthodox – and often illegal – investigative methods of the late British tabloid News of the World? What do the readers of News Corp’s 147 Australian papers think of the scandal that has rattled Rupert Murdoch’s media conglomerate? Would a book about the sprawling case have any chance of being published by HarperCollins, another asset in the News Corp stable? Can the fall of News of the World affect the global fortunes of the firm founded by Murdoch in 1979? And just how big is the Australian-American billionaire’s media empire? Find out this and more on FRANCE 24’s map of Planet Murdoch.
