Breaking News by Paul Barry

breaking news barry paul

At the age of 82, Rupert Murdoch is divorcing his third wife Wendi Deng and gearing up for the toughest challenge of his life: to hand his empire on to his children. At least twenty journalists will soon face trial for hacking and corruption and could be jailed. But, like King Lear, he needs to anoint the successor, and one wonders whether it's going to work out any better for Rupert than it did for Lear. Whether his backing makes any difference is a moot point, but politicians clearly think it does. Paul Barry has won numerous awards for his work as a journalist, including a Walkley in 2001 for an expose on tax-dodging barristers.

But is this the end of the Murdoch dynasty? These were people who were in danger of losing their jobs and perhaps their liberty as a result of corrupt behaviour at his newspaper. Murdoch's empire is declining, none of his children are both able and willing to take over, and scandal wracks his life—yet he still manages to thrive despite it all At the age of 82, Rupert Murdoch divorced his third wife and is gearing up for the toughest challenge of his life: to hand his empire on to his children. The evidence of the book suggests that there is in fact only one: it is the cynical Rupert, and the charm is cynically deployed in order to help him advance his business interests. Lachlan doesn't want to succeed him. Through this book, a picture emerges of a man with a disordered personality, so obsessive about business success that norms of civilised behaviour, the processes of reason and his treatment of people - including his children - are ruthlessly subordinated to it.

Murdoch even contrives at one point to present himself as a victim of the hacking scandal, a delusional inversion of the truth if ever there was one.
