Hoover Institution Interview Of Rupert Murdoch

In this video Peter Robinson of the Hoover Institution interviews Rupert Murdoch.

Murdoch owns the controlling interest in News Corporation, which in turn owns media properties on five continents — properties that include some 170 newspapers, dozens of television stations, half a dozen television networks, a publishing company, and a movie studio.

Murdoch discusses his media empire and the current state of the newspaper business, as well as other issues on Uncommon Knowledge.

Murdoch’s best quote is at 9:13 into the video in response to Dan Rather’s plea for a government bailout of the press.

Murdoch says – “I think you’re talking rubbish… we don’t want government money in that we want a free press.”
