About Rupert Murdoch
Rupert Murdoch is an American business magnate best known as the founder and CEO of the multinational mass media corporation News Corporation, the second-largest media conglomerate in the world, which was later split into New News Corp and 21st Century Fox in 2013. Through his corporation, Murdoch also owns the film studio 20th Century Fox, the publishing company HarperCollins, and the international daily newspaper The Wall Street Journal.
Phone Hacking Scandal
During the 2000s Murdoch was under heavy publicity when one of the publications under his corporation, News of the World, was accused of utilizing phone hacking and police bribery to get stories, most notably on celebrities, politicians, and members of the British Royal Family. The scandal eventually forced the 168-year old newspaper publication to be shut down in 2011. Although, Murdoch did not face any charges due to him being not in direct control of the publication’s methods.
