Murdoch feted at Wiesenthal tribute dinner

WHAT: Simon Wiesenthal Center’s 21st annual tribute dinner Jan. 11, honoring media mogul Rupert Murdoch.

WHO: Fellow Aussie Nicole Kidman, who presented Murdoch with the center’s highest honor, the Humanitarian Laureate Award.

WHERE: The Grand Ballroom at Gotham’s Waldorf-Astoria Hotel

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.”
