What’s black and white and read all over the world? In this new four-part series, we look at the in-fighting, back-stabbing, and the many marriages of Rupert Murdoch and his children. The fight in the Murdoch clan to take over the media tycoon’s empire is so juicy that it inspired HBO’s hit series “Succession.” Well, we have a secret: the real-life story is even juicier. The true heir will control a multi-billion dollar conglomerate with the power to elect presidents. In this episode, young Rupert Murdoch transforms a single newspaper into a global media empire. He hopes one of his kids will take it over someday. There’s only one problem: Rupert can’t decide which kid.
