The original NEWS CORPORATION or NEWS CORP. was an American multinational mass media corporation headquartered in New York City. It was the world's fourth-largest media group in 2014 in terms of revenue. Board members include prominent former Spanish prime minister José María Aznar

.

News Corporation
News Corporation
was a publicly traded company listed on the NASDAQ
NASDAQ
. Formerly incorporated in Adelaide
Adelaide
, South Australia
Australia
, the company was re-incorporated under Delaware
Delaware
General Corporation Law after a majority of shareholders approved the move on 12 November 2004. News Corporation was headquartered at 1211 Avenue of the Americas
1211 Avenue of the Americas
, New York, in the newer 1960s–1970s corridor of the Rockefeller Center complex.

On 28 June 2012, after concerns from shareholders in response to its recent scandals and to "unlock even greater long-term shareholder value", Rupert Murdoch
Rupert Murdoch
announced that News Corporation's assets would be split into two publicly traded companies, one oriented towards media, and the other towards publishing. The Corporate spin-off formally took place on 28 June 2013; where the present News Corp. was renamed 21st Century Fox
21st Century Fox
and consists primarily of media outlets, while a new News Corp
News Corp
was formed to take on the publishing and Australian broadcasting assets.

Its major holdings at the time of the split were News Limited (a group of newspaper publishers in Murdoch's native Australia), News International (a newspaper publisher in the United Kingdom, whose properties include The Times
The Times
, The Sun , and the now-defunct News of the World —which was the subject of a phone hacking scandal that led to its closure in July 2011), Dow Jones subsequently the controlling interest was bought by The Herald and Weekly Times . In 1949, Sir Keith Murdoch
Keith Murdoch
took control of The Adelaide
Adelaide
News. When he died in 1952, his son Rupert inherited a controlling interest in an Adelaide afternoon tabloid, The News . News Limited operates today as News Corporation's Australian brand, The Australian
The Australian
operating out of Surry Hills , in Sydney.

MOVING INTO THE UNITED STATES

News Ltd. made its first acquisition in the United States
United States
in 1973, when it purchased the San Antonio Express-News
San Antonio Express-News
. Soon afterwards it founded the National Star , a supermarket tabloid , and in 1976 it purchased the New York Post
New York Post
.

In 1981, News Corp
News Corp
bought half of the movie studio 20th Century Fox
20th Century Fox
, buying the other half in 1984. In 1985, News Corp
News Corp
announced it was buying the Metromedia
Metromedia
group of stations, setting the stage for the launch of a fourth U.S. commercial broadcasting television network. On 4 September 1985, Murdoch became a naturalized citizen to satisfy the legal requirement that only United States
United States
citizens could own American television stations. In 1986, the Metromedia
Metromedia
deal closed, and the Fox Broadcasting Company was launched. This network, known on-screen as "Fox", can now be picked up in over 96% of U.S. households.

EXPANSION AND CONSOLIDATION

In 1986 and 1987, News Corp
News Corp
(through subsidiary News International ) moved to adjust the production process of its British newspapers, over which the printing unions had long maintained a highly restrictive grip. A number of senior Australian media moguls were brought into Murdoch's powerhouse, including John Dux , who was managing director of the South China Morning Post . This led to a confrontation with the printing unions National Graphical Association and Society of Graphical and Allied Trades . The move of News International's London operation to Wapping
Wapping
in the East End resulted in nightly battles outside the new plant. Delivery vans and depots were frequently and violently attacked. Ultimately the unions capitulated.

By 1992, News Corp
News Corp
had gotten huge debts, which forced it to sell many of the American magazine interests it had acquired in the mid-1980s to K-III Communications , as well spinning off long-held Australian magazines interests as Pacific Magazines . Much of this debt came from its stake in the Sky Television
Television
satellite network in the UK, which incurred massive losses in its early years of operation, which (like many of its business interests) was heavily subsidised with profits from its other holdings until it was able to force rival satellite operator BSB to accept a merger on its terms in 1990. (The merged company, BSkyB
BSkyB
, has dominated the British pay-TV market since.)

In 1993, News Corp
News Corp
acquired a 63.6% stake of the Hong Kong-based STAR TV satellite network for over $500 million, followed by the purchase of the remaining 36.4% in July 1995. Murdoch declared that:

"(Telecommunications) have proved an unambiguous threat to totalitarian regimes everywhere ... satellite broadcasting makes it possible for information-hungry residents of many closed societies to bypass state-controlled television channels."

In 1995, the Fox network became the object of scrutiny from the FCC when it was alleged that its Australian base made Murdoch's ownership of Fox illegal. The FCC, however, ruled in Murdoch's favour, stating that his ownership of Fox was in the public's best interests. It was also noted that the stations themselves were owned by a separate company whose chief shareholder was a U.S. citizen, Murdoch, although nearly all of the stations' equity was controlled by News Corp. In the same year, News Corp
News Corp
announced a deal with MCI Communications to develop a major news website as well as funding a conservative news magazine, The Weekly Standard . In the same year, News Corp
News Corp
launched the Foxtel
Foxtel
pay television network in Australia
Australia
in a partnership with Telstra
Telstra
and Publishing
Publishing
and Broadcasting Limited .

In 1996, Fox established the Fox News Channel
Fox News Channel
, a 24-hour cable news station to compete against Ted Turner 's rival channel CNN
CNN
.

In 1999, News Corp
News Corp
significantly expanded its music holdings in Australia
Australia
by acquiring the controlling share in a leading Australian-based label, Michael Gudinski 's Mushroom Records , merging it with already held Festival Records to create Festival Mushroom Records (FMR). Both Festival and FMR were managed by Rupert Murdoch's son James Murdoch for several years.

Also mid 1999, The Economist reported that News Corp
News Corp
paid comparatively lower taxes and Newscorp Investments specifically had made £11.4 billion ($20.1 billion) in profits over the previous 11 years but had not paid net corporation tax. It also reported that after an examination of the available accounts, Newscorp could normally have been expected to pay corporate tax of approximately $350 million. The article explained that in practice, the corporation's complex structure, international scope and use of offshore tax havens allowed News Corporation
News Corporation
to pay minimal taxes.

DEVELOPMENT SINCE 2000

In late 2003, News Corp
News Corp
acquired a 34% stake in DirecTV
DirecTV
Group (formerly Hughes Electronics), operator of the largest American satellite TV system, from General Motors for US $6 billion. DirecTV was sold to Liberty Media in 2008 in exchange for its holding in News International.

In January 2005, shortly after reincorporation in the United States, News Corporation
News Corporation
announced that it was buying out Fox Entertainment Group . The manoeuvre delisted Fox from the New York Stock Exchange ; Fox traded on the NYSE under the ticker FOX.

In July 2005, in one of the company's first major Internet purchases, News Corporation
News Corporation
purchased the social networking website Myspace for $580 million. News Corporation
News Corporation
had beat out Viacom
Viacom
by offering a higher price for the website, and the purchase was seen as a good investment at the time. Of the $580 million purchase price, approximately $327 million has been attributed to the value of Myspace according to the financial adviser fairness opinion . Within a year, Myspace had tripled in value from its purchase price.

In February 2007, Murdoch announced at the McGraw-Hill Media Summit that Fox would launch a new business news channel later in the year, which would compete directly against rival network CNBC
CNBC
. Murdoch explained that the channel would be more "business-friendly" than CNBC, because he felt that they "leap on every scandal, or what they think is a scandal." In July 2007, News Corp. reached a deal to acquire Dow Jones "> by Sen. Robert Menendez (D-NJ), who specifically requested an investigation into 9/11 victims, as well as Sen. Frank Lautenberg (D-NJ) who encouraged an investigation by the Securities and Exchange Commission. On 13 July 2011, Representative Peter King (R-NY) wrote a letter to the FBI requesting an investigation into News Corporation's ethical practices, and on 14 July, the FBI opened a probe into the hacking of 9/11 victims. Les Hinton, chief executive of the media group's Dow Jones, resigned on 15 July, saying, "I have seen hundreds of news reports of both actual and alleged misconduct during the time I was executive chairman of News International and responsible for the company. The pain caused to innocent people is unimaginable. That I was ignorant of what apparently happened is irrelevant and in the circumstances I feel it is proper for me to resign from News Corp, and apologize to those hurt by the actions of the News of the World."

In 2012, following a BBC Panorama report, allegations were made that News Corp
News Corp
subsidiary NDS Group had used hackers to undermine pay TV rivals around the world. Some of the victims of the alleged hacking, such as Austar
Austar
, were later taken over by News Corp
News Corp
and others such as Ondigital later went bust. NDS had originally been set up to provide security to News Corp's pay TV interests but emails obtained by Fairfax Media revealed they had also pursued a wider agenda by distributing the keys to rival set-top box operators and seeking to obtain phone records of suspected rivals. The emails were from the hard drive of NDS European chief Ray Adams. In 2012, it was also revealed that Australian Federal police were working with UK police to investigate hacking by News Corp.

On 28 June 2012, Rupert Murdoch
Rupert Murdoch
announced that, after concerns from shareholders in response to the recent scandals and to "unlock even greater long-term shareholder value", News Corporation's assets would be split into two publicly traded companies, one oriented towards media, and the other towards publishing. News Corp's publishing operations were spun out into a new News Corporation
News Corporation
with Robert James Thomson , editor of The Wall Street Journal
The Wall Street Journal
, as CEO. The present News Corporation, which retains most of its media properties (such as the Fox Entertainment Group and 20th Century Fox
20th Century Fox
) and Murdoch as CEO, was renamed 21st Century Fox
21st Century Fox
. Murdoch remains chairman for both companies. News Corp's post-split logo, based on Rupert Murdoch's personal handwriting.

Shareholders approved the split on 11 June 2013. On 19 June 2013, preliminary trading for the new News Corp
News Corp
on the Australian Securities Exchange commenced in preparation for the formal split that was finalized on 28 June 2013. Shareholders received one share of New News Corp for every four shares they owned of the old News Corp. The two new companies began trading on the NASDAQ
NASDAQ
on 1 July 2013.

SHAREHOLDERS

* In August 2005, the Murdoch family owned only about 29% of the company of which as of June 2013 had been diluted to around 12%. However, nearly all of these shares were voting shares which currently stand at 39% of the total voting shares, and Rupert Murdoch
Rupert Murdoch
retained effective control of the company. Nonetheless, John Malone of Liberty Media had built up a large stake, with about half of the shares being voting shares. Therefore, in November 2006, News Corporation
News Corporation
announced its intention to transfer its 38.5% managing interest in DirecTV
DirecTV
Group to John Malone's Liberty Media; in return it bought back Liberty's 16.3% stake in News Corp., giving Murdoch tighter control of the latter firm. Murdoch sold 17.5 million class A shares in December 2007. * Another major stakeholder has been Al-Waleed bin Talal , of the Saudi Royal Family . In 1997, Time reported that Al-Waleed owned about five percent of News Corporation. In 2010, Alwaleed's stake in News Corp. was about 7 percent, amounting to $3 billion. In 2013, News Corp. had a $175 million (19 percent) investment in Al-Waleed's Rotana Group , the Arab world's largest entertainment company.

POLITICAL DONATIONS

In anticipation of US midterm elections , News Corp. donated $1 million to the Republican Governors Association in June 2010. The move was criticised by Democrats, who said this was evidence of News Corp's media outlets conservative leanings (see Fox News
Fox News
Channel controversies ). The Democratic Governors Association also criticised the donation and demanded more transparency in the reporting by News Corp companies. DGA head Nathan Daschle wrote to the chairman of News Corp company Fox News
Fox News
, Roger Ailes : "In the interest of some fairness and balance , I request that you add a formal disclaimer to your coverage any time any of your programs covers governors or gubernatorial races between now and election day."

Around the same time, News Corp. also donated $1 million to the United States
United States
Chamber of Commerce . The Chamber aggressively supported the Republican effort to retake Congress in 2010. This donation and an earlier $1 million contribution that News Corp. made to the Republican Governor's Association led media critics to question whether the company had crossed an ethical line for a media company.
