Rupert Murdoch owns the controlling interest in News Corp., which in turn owns media properties on five continents -- properties that include some 170 newspapers, dozens of television stations, half a dozen television networks, a publishing company, and a movie studio.In this wide-ranging interview, Murdoch discusses his rise from proprietor of the Adelaide News at age 22 (on the death of his father) to international media mogul. Weighing in on topics as varied as capitalism, feature films, China, and Google, the conversation invariably returns to newspapers and journalism.

Rupert Murdoch calls it "rubbish, and very dangerous rubbish."moreless
