Elisabeth Murdoch seconded her father's characterization of how family members were brought up, saying that as children they would read the newspapers around the kitchen table and discuss issues and ideas with him.
"It's about what media can do in terms of empowering individuals and being aspirational and democratizing -- that's what's always motivated my dad," she said....
Yeah, as an individual, I feel so empowered by all this. It's all so aspirational and democratizing.
