  • Media mogul Rupert Murdoch’s youngest son has quit the board of News Corporation citing “disagreements over editorial content”.
  • The resignation will likely hand Rupert Murdoch’s other son, Lachlan Murdoch, more influence within News Corp.
  • Murdoch was dragged into the phone hacking scandal in 2011, while he was in charge of the family’s business across Europe, including the News of the World — the now defunct paper behind some of the hacks.
