If you think Rupert Murdoch has only been pushing mainstream journalism rightward and for the worse since 9/11, Maury Povich will avuncularly disabuse you of that notion in "The Murdochs: Empire of Influence." ?

Compared to what Murdoch would wreak on the media landscape, political discourse and democracy on the whole, this is a cheeky detail.

Murdoch made Povich a famous man by bankrolling one of the trashiest shows on TV.

If something is lacking in the landscape, Murdoch will not only fill that gap but use that device to alter the full picture.

Rupert Murdoch, like his henchman, the late Roger Ailes, made a fortune off of giving the audience what it wants.

It's better for all of us that the Roy kids are mulling their place in a legacy that mirrors that of the Murdoch children, only with the brainpower of the Trumps.

The first covers the rise and dominance of Rupert Murdoch, media mogul.

But the relationship between Rupert and his children is even stranger than that of their fictional counterparts because, by all accounts, he does seem to care about them.

"The Murdochs" stands on its own merits owing to its double-fisted servings of media insight on one hand and juicy biographical examination on the other.

Rupert Murdoch and wife Wendy Deng on February 27, 2005 in West Hollywood, California.

Nobody in the family agreed to participate in the making of the series, but the producers make an extensive effort to help us understand who Rupert Murdoch is and what spurs him onward.
