James Murdoch

EXCLUSIVE: News Corp’s Europe and Asia CEO will be giving a speech at the launch of University College London’s new Centre For Digital Humanities on May 20. The invitation says that Murdoch “will address the issues of creativity and culture in the digital age”.

Murdoch’s been making headlines over here this week after he walked into the office of a rival national newspaper and swore at the editor. The Independent newspaper has been running an ad campaign during this month’s election assuring readers, “Rupert Murdoch won’t decide this election. You will.” No doubt the hot-headed Murdoch will have calmed down by the time he addresses academics next month.
