If Rupert Murdoch isn’t making headlines, he’s busy buying the media outlets that generate the headlines. His News Corp. holdings—from the New York Post, Fox News, and most recently The Wall Street Journal, to name just a few—are vast, and his power is unrivaled. So what makes a man like this tick? Michael Wolff gives us the definitive answer in The Man Who Owns the News. With unprecedented access to Rupert Murdoch himself, and his associates and family, Wolff chronicles the astonishing growth of Murdoch's $70 billion media kingdom. In intimate detail, he probes the Murdoch family dynasty, from the battles that have threatened to destroy it to the reconciliations that seem to only make it stronger. Drawing upon hundreds of hours of interviews, he offers accounts of the Dow Jones takeover as well as plays for Yahoo! and Newsday as they’ve never been revealed before. Written in the irresistible stye that only an award-winning columnist for Vanity Fair can deliver, The Man Who Owns the News offers an exclusive glimpse into a man who wields extraordinary power and influence in the media on a worldwide scale—and whose family is being groomed to carry his legacy into the future.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

Wolff, a nimble writer with a knack for spotting colorful details, moves the story along at movie-of-the-week pace. Katie Hafner, New York Times Book Review
Burn Rate is a hilarious and frightening account of the life of an Internet startup. Amy Cortese, BusinessWeek
Wolff has given us the best account of both the lure and the frustration of the Internet. Peter Martin, Financial Times
Burn Rate is the real deal: a smart, thoughtful, funny, knowing, clear-eyed, candid and altogether exhilarating insider’s chronicle of the new media business—that is, the new media ‘business.’ If there’s a more honest and entertaining book on the digital revolution, I haven’t seen it. Kurt Andersen, columnist at The New Yorker
Burn Rate has a terrific feel for the crazy deals, the characters, and the clashing bicoastal cultures of the Internet. Deborah Stead, New York Times
