Rupert Murdoch Short Bio

Keith Rupert Murdoch (Melbourne, Australia, March 11, 1931) is an American businessman, investor and nationalized Australian tycoon, CEO and principal shareholder of the companies News Corp and 21st Century Fox, They include media such as The Sun and The Times and television networks such as Fox and Sky.

Son of the journalist Sir Keith Murdoch, who had consolidated the business holding News Limited, which he inherited after the death of his father, in 1952, assumed the presidency at only 20 years. Since then, Murdoch began to acquire several newspapers in Australia and New Zealand, after which it expanded to the United Kingdom, with the acquisition of the newspapers The Sun and News of the World, which was the starting point for the construction of the vast media empire, which would shape News Corporation.

Throughout his life, two elements have been constant in his business career, his tendency to use the means to favor his political positions, and the numerous legal cases that he has had to face, with accusations ranging from monopolistic actions to channel the profits of their businesses, through tax havens.

In July 2011, Murdoch had to face several complaints against his companies, including News of the World, owned by News Corporation, about the intervention of telephones of some celebrities, people of royalty and citizens. He faced police and government investigations of bribery and corruption in the United Kingdom, and FBI investigations in the United States. On July 21, 2012, Murdoch resigned as director of News International.
