Murdoch puts off retirement plans 'forever'

Rupert Murdoch, chairman of News Corporation, said yesterday he had no intention of stepping down from the global media empire he has spent more than 50 years building.

The 72-year-old said he would have to be "carried out" from the company, which he has developed from a single newspaper into a giant spanning television, film production and publishing companies across the world.
