RUPERT MURDOCH is profiled by Diane Shah in LOS ANGELES magazine under the header "Will Rupert Buy L.A.?" The Dodgers purchase "will be no more than a decimal point in Murdoch's creeping global hegemony. ... Still, what makes the Dodgers acquisition different from other Murdoch conquests is that he lives here." Shah adds that "one can't help but wonder what Murdoch and his $25 billion News Corp. portfolio might mean to us. Will he be a good corporate citizen, sprucing up the city and erecting various wings -- or a jet-propelled carpetbagger?" (LOS ANGELES, 12/97).
