Jewish 100, 2015: Rupert Murdoch – Business
Chairman of News Corporation
Rupert Murdoch, in a statement at a pro-Israel event in early 2015, shared that freedoms around the world depend on a free Israel. “You know as I do that as Israel goes, so goes … our morality and our very existence as freedom-loving citizens of the world.”
Many of the titles and channels owned by Murdoch’s News Corporation and Twenty-First Century Fox have, for the most part, covered stories relating to Jews and Israel in a fair manner.
While he officially started in 2015 to hand over the reins of his media empire to his sons, he plans on remaining active in its oversight, which is good news for the Jewish people.
