Bruce Page conjures up a pantomime villain in his biography of Rupert Murdoch, The Murdoch Archipelago. Page isn't a great help on some of these questions

Bruce Page conjures up a pantomime villain in his biography of Rupert Murdoch, The Murdoch Archipelago. Page isn't a great help on some of these questions. He's interesting when digging up Australian roots and - as befits a former opening bat for the Insight team - pretty good on financial chicanery. But the main feat of this mix of memoir, media philosophising and panegyric to the great days of the Sunday Times is to put Murdoch back where he doesn't always care to be: the 'gorilla' of Greg Dyke's imaginings, performing centre stage. How does the old boy keep getting away with it? Page can't quite understand

Rupert Murdoch is one of the most powerful men in the world today. As chief executive of News Corporation, he controls a global media empire which boasts some of the major players in newspapers, television, publishing and the movie business.

Rupert Murdoch is one of the most powerful men in the world today. In the English-speaking world, and increasingly in 'untapped' but potentially lucrative markets such as China, he wields an influence as political kingmaker second to none.

Page's critical view of Keith Murdoch will not surprise those who have read Les Carlyon's fine book on Gallipoli.

Rupert Murdoch and his empire present huge obstacles to the unauthorised biographer. Page's critical view of Keith Murdoch will not surprise those who have read Les Carlyon's fine book on Gallipoli.

Only one book (and that not strictly a biography) has been written about David Astor, although, as the architect of the post-war Observer, he was one of the most innovative newspaper owners of the second half of the 20th century. Or take, again, Katharine Graham. As the widow who re-created The Washington Post and rescued Newsweek from the fate of being merely the poor relation of Time magazine, she was probably the most powerful working woman in America. Yet the only literary memorial to her achievements is her own classic volume of autobiography, Personal History.

Comments:

Kata
In this brilliantly written and hard-hitting book, Bruce Page analyses in depth R. M.'s character (based on T. Adorno's `The Authoritarian Personality'), the history of his media empire, the power links, the revolutions in the media scene and the crucial test `freedom v. pseudo-freedom' for democracy.
His book contains also excellent information on such important historical issues as `Bloody Sunday' or the `Thatcher Years'.

Media landscape
In the early days of TV, newspapers didn't cover TV programs enough compared with the role they played in the life of their readers. Now, there is a close and vital embrace between TV and the newspaper industry (and most of all the tabloids).

Newspapers and pseudo-newspapers
A real news business, like newspapers must chase tirelessly after authentic (independent of opinion) disclosures. Some newspapers don't even try it; they are called pseudo-newspapers.
Effective and independent disclosures will bring newspapers into substantial conflict with the governing powers of the day.
Pseudo-newspapers will give active support of governing power to the extent of assisting it with official propaganda. The facts that are in the public interest are not published or selectively disclosed or covertly manipulated.

Freedom v. pseudo-freedom
The media system has been rightly thought to be the brightest hope for enlightenment, liberty and entertainment. But, the system became corrupted through profitable (corporate) alliances with the powerful in government. Law and regulations don't constitute a barrier anymore, if there is sufficient influence with sufficiently powerful people.

Democracy
For B. Page, democracy is fictional if media are there only for the ruling class. Only when the media are transparent, can the essential qualities of the intimate republic be saved.
Governments must not be allowed to hand over the use of public `goods', which give liberties material expression, to conspicuous free riders. Otherwise, a free society commits suicide.

Bruce Page wrote a very courageous and most necessary analysis of the Australian, English and US media scene. For him, democracies should be foolish to ignore media influences, which may be considered the greatest danger modern society faces.
A must read.

Bruce Page obviously loves the profession of journalism and has written a fine book about the business in it's political environment, specifically relating to Rupert Murdoch.

Murdoch's father Keith became an Australian hero by attacking the "Establishment" with populist lies about the ill fated Gallipoli landings and his son follows in his footsteps, also posing as an outsider while attaching himself to any rising political party.

Page amply illustrates the fiction of editorial independence at News International and shows beyond dispute that the group has achieved it's dominance by trading populist press support for political favours.

I think that it helps to have a familiarity with Anglo/American/Australian politics and press history from the 1970's onwards, but if you do have this interest, then it's an extremely valuable reflection on the real life power plays, idealism, responsibilities, confusions and compromises of journalism - in fact the best that I've read.
Vudozilkree
This is one of the most badly written books I have ever read. Bruce Page must have written it in a hurry.
People are giving this book good reviews because they are trying to get their own back on Murdoch after the Milly Dowler phone-hacking scandal in the UK.
As much as I despise Rupert Murdoch and his nasty right-wing media empire I will not give a good review rating to a book simply because it criticises Murdoch.
Bruce Page had the opportunity to stick the boot into Murdoch and he ended up kicking himself in the face.
This book was reviewed in Private Eye magazine when it first came out. Private Eye gave it a terrible review and I concur.
