That book grew out of Wolff's sympathetic and sometimes flattering account of Murdoch's takeover of the Wall Street Journal in the September 2007 Vanity Fair. But another aspect is that, differentiating himself from every other candidate, he has a long, intimate relationship with nearly every significant player in the media and, indeed, lavishes copious praise on almost all of them.
'Fire and Fury': A look inside Donald Trump's White House Ivanka Trump the 'first woman president'? Became one of the top business people. Republicans currently have a 51-49 majority there, although they have a geographic advantage in the seats on the ballot this fall.
The media mogul was largely displeased with Wolff's book, making it all the more puzzling why Trump granted him such wide latitude to roam the White House - watching the comings and goings, but also talking to people. Only twice in that window have Presidents' parties gained seats in the Senate: one each in 1982 and 2002.
Michael Wolff, who was granted unusually wide access to the White House during much of Trump's first year, has said in promoting his book, "Fire and Fury - Inside the Trump White House", that Trump is unfit for the presidency.
President Trump speaks about the passage of the tax bill on the South Lawn at the White House on Dec. 20, 2017.
U.S. President Donald Trump on Saturday rejected an author's accusations that he is mentally unfit for office and said his track record showed he is a "stable genius".
Murdoch's high regard for his Boswell ended as soon as the book was finished.
Still he has twice won the National Magazine award, including one for a series he wrote on the Iraq War in 2003. We've come to a point when there is no integrity in the White House.
Political strategists generally caution against shutdowns. Congress takes a temporary hit, but the public seldom knows - or cares - who runs that end of Pennsylvania Avenue.

Consider the 2013 government shutdown.
Wolff appears to have juked the Trumpies with a similar move.
The spokesperson for the First Family was not immediately reachable for comment. That there were no limits on what the assembled clergy could or should say. And he's built up goodwill with the base. Amos C. Brown, president of the San Francisco chapter of the NAACP and pastor of the Third Baptist Church of San Francisco since 1976, embodied that custom with every word of his sermon. As Steve Bannon continues to support the validity of the highly anticipated exposé, the hype increases but cannot stand up in court.
Invoking Trump's name only once, Brown lamented the state of the nation - its leadership and its people. The average length is seven days, although the costs can top billions in lost productivity for the economy. I don't think that he is done. The tweet about a "good shutdown" earlier this year came just a little after 8 a.m. and sent his team into overdrive to argue that they did not want that. Yes, the Wolff pieces were generous; they were not fawning.
He told NBC News on Friday that White House staff treated Trump like a child. "The last time I went to a book release was Harry Potter".
"He used sloppy Steve Bannon, who cried when he got fired and begged for his job".
MARTIN: Do you think any of this has to do with the loss in Alabama that - Steve Bannon supporting Roy Moore in that race, losing that race? I never spoke to him for book.
Either way, the clock is ticking.
