This Howard French article is terrific. The little-remembered tidbit is that Murdoch’s kowtowing began as an attempt to remedy his terrible relations with Chinese leadership due to a 1993 speech in which he boasted that the news, including the variety produced by himself, was an irresistable weapon against “totalitarian regimes”. Then he had to start kissing some serious authoritarian ass to make up for it. Sheez, the irony of it.
