Who's Afraid of Rupert Murdoch?


Episode Info

A biography in the vein of Citizen Kane, this Frontline report turns the spotlight on one of the biggest and boldest media barons of modern times: Rupert Murdoch. Following the past 40 years, this feature highlights Murdoch from his start as a newspaper man in Adelaide, Australia, to the current massive empire built around the communications medium involving both print, television, and the 20th Century Fox Studios. Correspondent Ken Auletta and the PBS production team flips the switch on a man, who, with a penchant for aggressive business acumen and a healthy gambling spirit, seemingly spends more time creating headlines than actually printing them.
