Rupert Murdoch is one of the most powerful and influential men of his time. Over the last 12 months this power has been under the microscope of UK government-led inquiries and intense media scrutiny. In conversation with Jonathan Holmes, David McKnight will discuss his book on Rupert Murdoch’s political power and whether it has been broken, in Britain at least, by the hacking scandal that has engulfed his newspapers there.

Presented by State Library of New South Wales.
