"Tabloid media moguls like (Rupert) Murdoch do not create public taste: they reflect it," wrote British journalist James Delingpole in 2013. Whether that taste whets your appetite or makes you nauseous, the question arises: what's James Murdoch's reflector like?
With reports surfacing that the 84-year old media titan will soon pass the baton at 21st Century Fox to his 42-year old son (with sibling Lachlan to take charge of the far smaller News Corporation subsidiary), it's a fair question: will James Murdoch share his father's famous instincts?
