The rise of tabloid journalism in the 1980s and the launch of a TV show, A Current Affair, fuels Rupert Murdoch’s empire. He brought gossip and news together to satisfy our appetite for sensational coverage. The New York Post’s influence knew little bounds, yet, in Murdoch’s aim to become a media titan, he must sell the paper due to US federal rules. The New York Post is suddenly at stake. Cindy Adams’ power as a columnist continues to grow, as do her relationships with controversial figures. Richard Johnson and George Rush lead Page Six.
