Rupert Murdoch on Steve Jobs: 'Greatest CEO of his generation'
Rupert Murdoch, the head of News Corp., weighed in on Steve Jobs’ death in a statement:
"Today, we lost one of the most influential thinkers, creators and entrepreneurs of all time. Steve Jobs was simply the greatest CEO of his generation. While I am deeply saddened by his passing, I'm reminded of the stunning impact he had in revolutionizing the way people consume media and entertainment. My heart goes out to his family and to everyone who had the opportunity to work beside him in bringing his many visions to life."
Murdoch created a stir this year when he launched his iPad newspaper The Daily.
