Murdoch Slams Old Toffs Who Want Monopolies: So Here's News Corp's Assets In Full

Posted: Updated:

Media mogul Rupert Murdoch is facing waves of fresh negative publicity over alleged hacking, this time at his Australian paper conglomerate News Limited.

Murdoch struck back this morning via Twitter, rejecting the claims as "every competitor and enemy piling on with lies and libel", criticising the "old toffs and right wingers who still want last century's status quo with their monopolies."

We're not sure exactly what monopolies Murdoch was referring to, but we though it was a good opportunity to take a look at News Corp's holdings around the world.
