Wolff To Pen Murdoch Bio

New York Post Media Ink columnist Keith Kelly reports that Vanity Fair‘s Michael Wolff will be penning a biography of Rupert Murdoch including the winning bid for Dow Jones. Wolff’s September 2007 piece for Vanity Fair describes the News Corp. chair as having “held more power over more time than any other contemporary figure.” Doubleday senior editor Phyllis Grann, who has been assigned the book, told The Post: “.. I want to know about him, what makes him tick. The Dow Jones deal is the culmination, perhaps, of what he’s accomplished, but the deal is more his march to take over the establishment,” Grann said.
