Vanity Fair Sells Murdoch Tell-All For Just $4
10:00 am, July 31st | by Hillary Reinsberg
Vanity Fair is taking the honors. The mogul-loving magazine has announced it’s publishing a selection of “tell-all” stories about Rupert Murdoch, in the first of what will certainly be many books about Murdoch in the post-hacking scandal era.
The collection of stories about different periods of Murdoch’s life, selected by Vanity Fair editor and elite hobnobber Graydon Carter, is available in eBook form on Kindle or Nook, for just $4. Comparatively, a single issue of Vanity Fair sells for more, costing at least $5 on a newsstand. Burn.
The price may be a blow to Murdoch’s ego, but the stories inside will probably do even more damage. Stories like “Murdoch Blood, Murdoch Empire” and “In Cold Type (Murdoch Buys the Chicago Sun-Times)” sound oddly chilling. And there’s also one about the Murdoch purchase and downfall of MySpace. Sometimes it’s hard to remember Murdoch was a controversial figure (or even existed) before the whole hacking thing went down.
