Service To The British Empire: The Education of Rupert Murdoch

Rupert Murdoch: Information from

Rupert Murdoch, Media Mogul

* Born: 11 March 1931
* Birthplace: Melbourne, Australia
* Best Known As: The power behind the News Corp. media empire

Name at birth: Keith Rupert Murdoch

Rupert Murdoch inherited a small Australian newspaper in 1952 and aggressively turned it into one of the biggest media corporations in the world, News Corp., a conglomerate that includes television, feature films, online services, newspapers and books. Over the years Murdoch acquired more and more media outlets all over the world, from Australia and Europe to the U.S. and China. Now one of the world's wealthiest men, he is frequently criticized for his political views and for "lowering the standards" of the publications and outlets he acquires. In the 1980s he became a U.S. citizen in order to meet requirements for owning TV stations. In the early 1990s his empire was stretched thin financially, but by the end of the '90s it had bounced back with successes on cable television and with the network Asian Star Television. News Corp.'s holdings include the Fox TV Network, HarperCollins Books, 20th Century Fox and The New York Post. Click here for more.

The Education of Rupert Murdoch

Murdoch's father was Sir Keith Murdoch, who had been knighted for services to the crown and was a national hero in Australia. He was also one of the 20th century's most celebrated journalists: he was credited with revealing the truth about Britain's invasion of Gallipoli during World War I and with changing the British government's policy as a result, with troops being withdrawn from Turkey. Murdoch grew up in a spacious home near Melbourne and spent much of his time on a sheep ranch owned by his family.

Editor's Note: Perhaps this part of what's behind FOX's support of Sir Rudy and his/their rabid dog attack of Ron Paul last night.
