Elisabeth Murdoch Rumored to Join News Corp. Board

Despite claims from News Corporation shareholders that there is rampant nepotism taking place, it looks like the Murdoch family will not be stopped. According to Bloomberg, the next move is to name Elisabeth Murdoch a member of the company’s board.

The board was expected to meet today and discuss her joining the ranks. Add that to James Murdoch‘s recent promotion, and the fact that Lachlan Murdoch is still on News Corp.’s board, and you get the feeling the Murdoch family is going to be calling the shots for a long, long time.

Shareholders might be complaining for decades.
