It is no exaggeration to say that every day we read the newspaper, watching TV, enjoy the novel and even the favorite team, there is the appearance of the Australians shadow. A recent survey by the British newspaper Observer Newspaper shows that media and business giants have replaced the traditional British celebrities as the most influential people in British daily life. The survey shows that today the most able to control the British 300 people, the top of the British Prime Minister Tony Blair, the media tycoon Rupert Murdoch and Microsoft Chairman Gates.

In many people’s eyes, Murdoch can not be regarded as a newspaperman, can only be regarded as newspaper speculators. Murdoch is the guts, the combination of strategy and hard work. Murdoch said: buy newspapers and newspapers, I learned to run a newspaper. With the traditional sense of the difference between the newspaper, Murdoch is the success and development reasons, he will not rigidly adhere to the existing newspaper itself, but always staring at the next goal.

In this regard, he has his own unique insights: hands do not mean that the fastest will be successful. This seems to be the current network industry, the law of some contradictions. But Murdoch is not a bubble like man, he like Australia’s most simple farmers, like real achievements. For mergers and business development, he once optimistic, it must be the shot when the shot, spending big bucks unequivocally. At this time, his theory came a 180 degree change – strong as fast.
