The original News Corporation
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.[7][8][9][10][11] Board members include prominent former Spanish prime minister José María Aznar.[12] News Corporation
News Corporation
was a publicly traded company listed on the NASDAQ. Formerly incorporated in Adelaide, South 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, 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", founder Rupert Murdoch
Rupert Murdoch
announced that News Corporation's assets would be split into two publicly traded companies[13], 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
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 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 & Company (an American publisher of financial news outlets, including The Wall Street Journal), the book publisher HarperCollins, and the Fox Entertainment Group (owners of the 20th Century Fox
20th Century Fox
film studio and the Fox Broadcasting Company—one of the United States' major television networks).

History[edit] News Corp
News Corp
was created in 1979 by Rupert Murdoch
Rupert Murdoch
as a holding company for News Limited. News Limited
News Limited
was created in 1923 in Adelaide; subsequently the controlling interest was bought by The Herald and Weekly Times. In 1949, Sir Keith Murdoch
Keith Murdoch
took control of The Adelaide News. When he died in 1952, his son Rupert inherited a controlling interest in an Adelaide
Adelaide
afternoon tabloid, The News. News Limited operates today as News Corporation's Australian brand, The Australian operating out of Surry Hills, in Sydney. Moving into the United States[edit] News Ltd. made its first acquisition in the United States
United States
in 1973, when it purchased the San Antonio Express-News. Soon afterwards it founded the National Star, a supermarket tabloid, and in 1976 it purchased the New York Post. In 1981, News Corp
News Corp
bought two eights of the movie studio 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[edit] 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.[14] 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.[14] Ultimately the unions capitulated.[citation needed] By 1992, News Corp
News Corp
had gotten huge[clarification needed] 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[citation needed] rival satellite operator BSB to accept a merger on its terms in 1990. (The merged company, 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.[15][16] Murdoch declared that:[17]

"(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
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
Fox News
Channel, a 24-hour cable news station to compete against Ted Turner's rival channel 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
Festival Records
to create Festival Mushroom Records (FMR). Both Festival and FMR were managed by Rupert Murdoch's son James Murdoch
James Murdoch
for several years. Also mid 1999, The Economist
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[clarification needed] taxes.[18][19] Development since 2000[edit] 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
DirecTV
was sold to Liberty Media
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.[20] The manoeuvre delisted Fox from the New York Stock Exchange; Fox traded on the NYSE under the ticker FOX.[21] In July 2005, in one of the company's first major Internet purchases, News Corporation
News Corporation
purchased the social networking website Myspace
Myspace
for $580 million.[22][23] News Corporation
News Corporation
had beat out Viacom
Viacom
by offering a higher price for the website,[24] and the purchase was seen as a good investment at the time.[24] Of the $580 million purchase price, approximately $327 million has been attributed to the value of Myspace
Myspace
according to the financial adviser fairness opinion.[25] Within a year, Myspace
Myspace
had tripled in value from its purchase price.[24] 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. 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."[26] In July 2007, News Corp. reached a deal to acquire Dow Jones & Company, owners of The Wall Street Journal, of $5 billion for[27].[28] Despite CNBC
CNBC
already having a contract with Dow Jones to provide content and services to the network, Fox officially launched the Fox Business Channel
Fox Business Channel
on 15 October 2007. Alexis Glick, the network's original morning show host and vice president of business news, indicated that its lawyers had reviewed the details of Dow Jones' contract with CNBC, but noted that it would still "actively use" other Dow Jones properties.[29][30] In 2009, News Corp
News Corp
established NewsCore, a global wire service set up to provide news stories to all of News Corp's journalistic outlets.[31] In 2010, due to the Fijian government's requirement that the country's media outlet must be 90% owned by Fiji Nationals, News Corporation sold 90% of their stake in their Fijian newspapers (Fiji Times, Nai Lalakai, and Shanti Dut) to Motibhai Group of Companies.[32] In late February 2011, News Corp
News Corp
officially put the now-struggling Myspace
Myspace
up for sale, which was estimated to be worth $50–200 million.[33] Losses from the last quarter of 2010 were $156 million, over double of the previous year, which dragged down the otherwise strong results of parent News Corp. Its struggles were attributed to the growth of the competing social network Facebook.[34][35] The deadline for bids, 31 May 2011, passed without any above the reserve price of $100 million being submitted.[36] The rapid deterioration in Myspace's business during the most recent quarter had deterred many potent suitors.[34] Later in June, Specific Media and pop singer Justin Timberlake
Justin Timberlake
bought the site for $35 million, which CNN
CNN
reported noted was "far less than the $580 million News Corp. paid for Myspace in 2005."[37] Murdoch went on to call the Myspace
Myspace
purchase a "huge mistake".[38] On 13 July 2011, Rupert Murdoch

News Corporation
announced that it would buy out ESPN Inc.'s stake in ESPN Star Sports
ESPN Star Sports
to gain full control over the Asian sports network.[40] In January 2013, News Corp. attained 54.5% majority control of Sky Deutschland.[41] On 4 February 2013, News Corporation
News Corporation
announced the sale of IGN
IGN
and its related properties to the publishing company Ziff Davis. News Corp. had planned to spin off IGN
IGN
as an independent company, but failed to do so.[42][43] Scandals[edit] Main article: 2011 News Corporation

scandals In July 2011, News Corp
News Corp
closed down the News of the World
News of the World
newspaper in the United Kingdom due to allegations of phone hackings. The allegations include trying to access former Prime Minister Gordon Brown's voice mail, and obtain information from his bank accounts, family's medical records, and private legal files. Allegations of hacking have also been brought up in relation to former Prime Minister Tony Blair, and the Royal Family.[44] Other allegations put out by The Guardian newspaper include the exploitation, with intent to gain access to or use private information, of a list of 4,332 names or partial names, 2,987 mobile phone numbers, 30 audio tapes of varying length and 91 PIN codes, of a kind required to access the voicemail of the minority of targets who change the factory settings on their mobile phones.[45] The names are said to include those of British victims of 11 September 2001 terror attacks, family members of victims of the "7/7" bombings on London's transit system, family members of British troops killed overseas, Milly Dowler, a 13-year-old missing British girl who was later found dead, actor Hugh Grant
Hugh Grant
and a lawyer representing the family of Princess Diana's lover at the inquest into her death.[45] On 13 July 2011, News Corp
News Corp
withdrew its bid to purchase the final 61% stake in BSkyB
BSkyB
after pressure from both the Labour and Conservative Parties in Parliament.[46] Allegations about the violation of ethical standards by the News Corporation subsidiary News of the World
News of the World
have been speculatively applied to News Corporation
News Corporation
holdings in the United States. Senator John Rockefeller (D-WV) stated on 12 July 2011 that there should be a government investigation into News Corporation
News Corporation
"to ensure that Americans have not had their privacy violated."[47] His statement was echoed on Wednesday[48] 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.[47] 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.[49] 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."[50] In 2012, following a BBC Panorama report, allegations were made that News Corp
News Corp
subsidiary NDS Group
NDS Group
had used hackers to undermine pay TV rivals around the world. Some of the victims of the alleged hacking, such as 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
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.[51] 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.[52] Split[edit] Main articles: 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, as CEO. The present News Corporation, which retains most of its media properties (such as the Fox Entertainment Group
Fox Entertainment Group
and 20th Century Fox) and Murdoch as CEO, was renamed 21st Century Fox. Murdoch remains chairman for both companies.[53][54][55]

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.[57][58][59] The Wolverine (2013) became the first film to feature the 20th Century Fox logo without the News Corporation
News Corporation
byline during the logo, and has been featured in Fox films since then. Shareholders[edit]

In August 2005, the Murdoch family
Murdoch family
owned only about 29% of the company of which as of June 2013 had been diluted to around 17%. 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
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% 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.[60] Murdoch sold 17.5 million class A shares in December 2007.[61] 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.[62] 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.[63] Sold all shares which was already at 6% in November 2017[64]

Annual conference[edit] News Corporation
News Corporation
organises an annual management conference, discussing media issues related to geopolitics. Attendees include News Corporation executives, senior journalists, politicians and celebrities. Previous events were in Cancún, Mexico, and the Hayman Island off the coast of Australia. The events are private and secretive, there are no records available for the agenda or talks given at the conferences, and no uninvited journalists are permitted access.[65] The 2006 event in Pebble Beach, California
Pebble Beach, California
was led by Rupert Murdoch. According to a copy of the agenda leaked to the Los Angeles Times
Los Angeles Times
and other media accounts,[66] issues discussed related from Europe to broadcasting and new media, terrorism to the national policy.[67] The event included speeches from Murdoch, Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, former British Prime Minister Tony Blair, Bono, Al Gore, Senator John McCain and Bill Clinton
Bill Clinton
while Israel's President, Shimon Peres, appeared on a panel named "Islam and the West". Other notable attendees included Newt Gingrich
Newt Gingrich
and Nicole Kidman. Political donations[edit] In anticipation of US midterm elections, News Corp. donated $1 million to the Republican Governors Association
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
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, 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."[68] 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.[69] 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.[69] Corporate governance[edit]
