NYT: Murdoch in-fighting has seen James ordered back to New York


The New York Times today reports on tensions between News Corp boss Rupert Murdoch and James Murdoch, who runs the Europe and Asia side of the business.

Apparently the relationship has frayed in recent years, with both men barely on speaking terms at times. The NYT also reports that James has been ordered back to the company’s New York headquarters and that he has bought a $23m townhouse in the city.

The NTY concludes that James is still in prime position to succeed his father as the head of News Corp: “Most Murdoch watchers say they believe the top job is still his to lose among his siblings.”
