Rupert Murdoch has power, wealth – and legions of detractors, who say the media mogul's tabloids and TV stations have fueled crass celebrity culture, phone hacking and fake news."Ink" shows how Murdoch revolutionized British journalism at the end of the 1960s, turning the failing Sun newspaper into the country's most influential tabloid through a canny mix of sin, sensation and sex.Murdoch and Sun editor Larry Lamb shocked the stuffy, class-ridden newspaper business with a paper that embraced the populist delights of sports, television, sex and free giveaways.Lamb, who led the Sun for nine years, died in 2000 . Murdoch, now 86 and still atop his empire, has not been to see "Ink," but many of his executives and journalists have.Today, Murdoch owns the film studio 20th Century Fox, U.S. broadcaster Fox News, the New York Post, the Times of London – and the Sun, still Britain's best-selling newspaper.
