.

Nothing like Murdoch family business machinations to fuel speculation about motives and outcomes and so it is with the news that, nine years after splitting the empire in two, the Murdochs want to re-merge them.

Cue references to Lachlan’s ambitions and succession planning and Succession – the TV show about a Machiavellian media mogul who is not based on Rupert Murdoch. (I don’t think the script writers ever suggested Logan Roy was backing Donald Trump and embedding climate denialism in Australian conservative politics.)
