We gained an insight into the close connection/networks in the UK that had developed between the political class and Murdoch's media company in the UK. We are looking back into the decades-long process that made Murdoch so powerful and unaccountable.

If Murdoch is now in the process of being ejected from the politicians' social network for good, then who replaces Murdoch in terms of media power?
