Murdoch Resigns from Major Newspaper Posts
A few weeks back, we examined a day in the tweeting life of NewsCorp Presidente, Rupert Murdoch - the notorious purveyor of conservative commentary and, recently, the subject of a widespread Parliamentary investigation into a phone-hacking scandal that has consumed the entire company. Through his tweets, he upset the Romney campaign, the Scientology community and defended his case against the Levenson Inquiry. However, it looks like he'll have to defend his case against his own company.
believe that Murdoch's resignation is a sign that he is preparing to sell the newspaper group. The Board of Trustees at NewsCorp has already told the press that it will be splitting in half: one side being the troubled newspaper/publishing side (TheNew York Post
,Wall Street Journal
, et cetera) and the other being the film/television side (Fox News, Fox Spotlight, et cetera).
