(5341) Michael Wolff - The Man Who Owns the News - YouTube
See his wikipedia // the least self-aware, not interested in the past, old-fashioned city editor, what counts is today. // @MichaelWolffNYC defends not quoting people in his work bc its lazy and apparently does not get you & reader to the "larger more significant truth." (22:15) //&! See critizism about his writings on his wikipedia. Underlined again in this fire and fury review: "One suspects, though, that many readers will forgive any such errors. The book confirms their worst fears about the Trump presidency: it feels truthful, if not always factual." [... er gibt her was man lesen will ueber trump administration. schreibt trumpian buch ubers erste jahre trump.] Does that not sound very similar to “truth from the gut”?

“Do not be distracted,” writes Matthew D’Ancona, “by those who are scouring the book for minor errors. The big story is what matters, and Wolff has nailed it.”

Disney buys Fox assets in $52 billion split of Murdoch's realm
Walt Disney Co. agreed to a $52.4 billion deal to acquire much of the global empire that media baron Rupert Murdoch assembled over three decades, from a fabled Hollywood studio to Europe's largest satellite-TV provider to one of India's most-watched channels.

Holders of Murdoch's 21st Century Fox Inc. will get 0.2745 Disney share for each Fox share, for assets including the movie and TV production house, a 39 percent stake in Sky Plc, Star India, and a lineup of pay-TV channels that include FX and National Geographic, the companies said in statements Thursday. The price amounts to about $29.54 a share, based on Disney's closing price Wednesday. Both companies' stocks slipped in early trading.

Via a spinoff, the mogul will continue to run Fox News Channel, the FS1 sports network and the Fox broadcast network in the U.S. Disney Chief Executive Officer Bob Iger will remain in his role through 2021, the companies said. Fox plans to complete its planned acquisition of the 61 percent of European broadcaster Sky that it doesn't already own, which will wind up in Disney's hands.

The sale marks an epic downsizing for Murdoch, an 86-year-old former Australian who spent his adult life amassing the assets that made him a kingmaker in U.S. and U.K. politics. Iger said Thursday he'll discuss a possible role at Disney with Murdoch's son James, Fox's CEO, after he completes work on the merger transition. If Disney does offer the 45-year-old Murdoch a job, he could vie to succeed Iger, 66.

"This is the end of an era for the Murdochs, who after 30 years of aggressive empire expansion are now in retreat," said Tom Watson, deputy leader of the U.K. Labour Party. Watson played a pivotal role in the campaign against phone-hacking campaign at Murdoch's newspapers in 2011, which scuttled his first attempt to take control of Sky.

Ken Clarke: Tories had deal with Rupert Murdoch for 2010 election | Politics | The Guardian
David Cameron may have done “some sort of a deal” with Rupert Murdoch to win the Sun’s support for the Conservatives in the 2010 general election, Ken Clarke, the former justice secretary, has claimed.

“Quite how David Cameron got the Sun out of the hands of Gordon Brown I shall never know,” Clarke said. “Rupert would never let Tony [Blair – Brown’s predecessor] down because Tony had backed the Iraq war. Maybe it was some sort of a deal. David would not tell me what it was. Suddenly we got the Murdoch empire on our side.”

How the Tory election machine fell apart | Politics | The Guardian
Fiona Hill Nick Timothy Lynton Crosby // Tim Bale, a historian of the party and professor of politics at the University of London, argues that the Tories have gradually stopped presenting voters with an appealing vision of Britain. “In the 80s, they had a good balance of negativity and positivity,” he says. This meant exploiting the flaws of Labour leaders such as Michael Foot and Neil Kinnock while also promising a society of entrepreneurs and mass property ownership, an attractive idea in an era of increasing materialism. Yet at the 1992 election, under Thatcher’s less secure successor, John Major, this started to change. “He didn’t want a negative campaign,” says Bale, “but he was persuaded.” When the Conservatives won the election unexpectedly, victory was attributed by many Tories – and commentators and Labour politicians – to a single crude-but-effective Conservative campaign phrase: “Labour’s Tax Bombshell.”
