It’s Oct. 8, a scorching hot afternoon on the Fox Studios lot in Los Angeles, and it’s been less than 24 hours since Rupert Murdochmade news by tweeting about Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson: “What about a real black President who can properly address the racial divide? And much else.”

 

The comment is being dissected, interpreted and mocked on television and online, just like nearly every move made by the legendary 84-year-old media mogul. But perhaps no Murdoch machination has been more analyzed than his plan to elevate his family members to succeed him atop 21st Century Fox, the television and film behemoth that includes the Fox network; cable channels Fox News, FX and Nat Geo; Fox Sports; a share of the Sky pay TV services throughout Europe; and thriving film and TV studios here in L.A.
