Hacked to Death: The Times Murdoch "News of the World" Cover
1. What’s black and white and dead all over?
2. Is Rupert history … or is this addition by subtraction?
3. London blackout.
4. What’s a newspaper?
5. Forty-two years later, it’s still about the pay-off.
As England stews over Murdoch pulling the plug on the News of the World, The Times delivers this smashing front page featuring Murdoch in ’69. (Caption below.)
(h/t: @A_L. photo: Times archive caption: Rupert Murdoch casts a proprietorial eye over his new purchase in 1969 after fighting off a £34 rival bid from Robert Maxwell to buy the News of the World. It remained a broadsheet until 1984.)
