  2. Murdoch daughter won’t join board

    MEDIA: News Corporation has confirmed that Rupert Murdoch’s daughter will not be joining the company’s board.

    Elisabeth Murdoch said that it would be “inappropriate” for her to join the board.

    Some shareholders reportedly believe that the 16-member board is too beholden to Rupert Murdoch.

    The Murdochs control nearly 40 per cent of the company’s voting shares and Mr Murdoch’s two sons James and Lachlan already sit on the board.
