Read through Chaper 6 Australian Media Institutions pages 102 to 110. Then  read the following articles regarding tabloid newspapers, the Murdoch Inquiry and general related articles about regulation and self regulation. You do not have to read them all (but they are all very interesting!)

When you have read through these articles I would like you to summarise what you have read and your feelings about media ownership and the influence of Rupert Murdoch in particular. Try and write 500 words (you can write more but not less).
