Wendi, born in Xuzhou, China, has a master of business administration degree from Yale University and after graduation worked in Hong Kong for Star TV. According to the author, News Corp. has struggled to gain a strong foothold in China as the country censors the Internet and limits the number of Western movies allowed to be shown there.
