The end of Rupert Murdoch’s reign
Rupert Murdoch’s succession drama has finally reached its finale. The media mogul is stepping down from his role at Fox and News Corp., leaving his oldest son, Lachlan Murdoch, sole chair of the company. Australian-born Murdoch built a global media empire that influenced news, culture, and politics, most prominently right-leaning Fox News, which shaped American media and politics, particularly during Trump’s presidency.
