Rupert Murdoch: media baron extraordinaire

30 06 2007

chances are, whereever you are reading this, Mr Murdoch has some stake in your media business

he owns papers around the world

he owns cable tv operations around the world

now, these news rooms and channels are “on paper” independent

but the whole point of media consolidation is to reduce costs

ie reduce duplication

ie reduce the number of sources

different outlets for the same information
