News Corp

A massive newspaper conglomerate run by the Murdoch family

News Corp is the parent company of Rupert Murdoch’s vast collection of newspaper companies, including The Wall Street Journal, The Times, and the New York Post. Murdoch and his son Lachlan Murdoch jointly run News Corp as executive chairman and co-chairman, respectively. It is also the sister organization of Fox Corporation, the parent company of Fox News. News Corp was spun off from its original iteration as News Corporation in 2013 after its involvement in the British phone-hacking scandal.
