Real Power, Murdoch Style
“The mogul, for the most part, does not have to make threats or issue instructions. He just has to show up. Not even that—he just has to exist, somewhere in the background. Everybody understands; the fact of power is enough. If there’s a bull in the field, everybody steps carefully. The fear gives him access; the access, gives him influence. Real power is passive.”
-- Nick Davies, on Rupert Murdoch, in his book, ”Hack Attack: The Inside Story of How the Truth Caught Up with Rupert Murdoch."
