This paper outlines the high level of interest that News Corporation's Chief Executive Officer, Rupert Murdoch, has always had in politics. It details his trajectory on the political spectrum, arguing that while his position has changed, one consistent theme has been libertarianism. It examines the political stance of News Corporation's Australian flagship newspaper and argues that it helped forge a neo-liberal consensus in the late 1970s both within conservative political circles and within the Australian public.
