Summary
The unauthorised biography of Australia's first media magnate. Following the News of the World phone-hacking scandal, Rupert Murdoch said his greatest regret was that he had let his father down. Popular history views Sir Keith Murdoch (1885-1952) as a fearless war correspondent, author of the famous letter that led to the evacuation of the Anzac force from Gallipoli and a principled journalist and dedicated family man who, on his death, left a single provincial newspaper to Rupert. But is there another side to the story of Keith's success and the origins of News Corporation? Before Rupert is an unflinching prequel to the saga of the Murdoch family's rise to power. Historian Tom Roberts draws on an unparalleled range of interviews, correspondence and archival sources to trace the genesis of the family's involvement with the news and entertainment industry and their resulting influence. This book explores how Keith Murdoch ruthlessly exploited his networks to gain ultimate control over Australia's media and political landscapes
