Examining The Dynasty of Another Newspaper Family

Wednesday, July 20, 2011

Rupert Murdoch and his son James testified before the British Parliament yesterday, as one of their company's papers is mired in an illegal phone hacking scandal. Apropos of this, we decided to take a look at the dynamic of dynasties in the newspaper industry with Emily Bingham. She is a historian and a descendant of the Robert Worth Bingham, who for decades owned numerous media properties in Louisville, Kentucky, including the Louisville Times and The Courier-Journal.
