Kids want to figure out why Rupert Murdoch is really divorcing wife Wendi Deng? Don’t bother reading the tabloids, just do what the tabloids do in the first place.

Topping the heap comes ‘Undisclosed reasons for Murdoch divorcing Deng are jaw-dropping,‘ courtesy of BBC financial correspondent Robert Peston where the journalist retweeted a post courtesy of the guardian’s Michael Wolff who happens to be Rupert Murdoch’s biographer.
Wolff goes on to tell about his years of knowing Murdoch and how he sensed that marrying Deng had been a mistake from the start.
