Inside Lachlan's plans for the Murdoch empire
Rupert Murdoch changed the face of global media – and now he’s stepping down from his empire and giving it to his son, Lachlan.

Today, Lachlan Murdoch biographer, Paddy Manning, on why Rupert chose Lachlan, and what the empire will look like under the family’s eldest son.
