MEDIA MAN: “Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp. provides cutting content, which gives us so many choices,” Kidman said. “Communication is the key to making our world a better place, and nobody knows how to communicate more effectively on such a huge scale than Rupert.

“The relationship between the media and the Simon Wiesenthal Center is (important),” she added, “because without the media we would not know the pressing issues that confront the center in this uncertain world.”
