              American Idol. Period. Need I say more? News Corporation (NYSE: NWS) and its Fox Broadcasting division are in one word powerful, and in one phrase, “The Most Powerful Name in News” (which is one of the slogans for the multi media behemoth).

              For decades, American television broadcasting power has been monopolized by what are often referred to by the media as the big-three television networks.

In an age where content and delivery systems are paramount, Fox is present in almost every sector and format.

I just got the sense that Mr. Wilson did not have to say much of anything twice to make things happen, well that was the way it was with me and my team scheduling the interview with him.

              You see as an Arkansas based television and radio producer, there was not much that I would not do if Mr. Wilson or his assistant were to request this or that. As I have said before when reporting to you on my experiences interviewing high powered business executives such as when I was granted an unprecedented chance to meet, engage and interview Mr. H. Lee Scott in 2006. In my article titled, “Interacting
with a Giant; My Experience Interviewing: H. Lee Scott, Jr., CEO, Wal-Mart Stores, Inc., I reported to you my experience leading up to and subsequently resulting from an hour and 18-minute-long riveting and impacting exchange with the World’s largest ...
