What a lovely site with reading, pictures, some moving. I felt like that I was almost standing there in the scene.
National Geographic always a good publication, which I hope won't be ruined by it being bought by Rupert Murdoch.

I also hope that Rupert doesn't ruin a very excellent magazine.

The people taking these videos and photos are on top of the food chain. I don't care who they work for, this is a good thing. What a shame to let greed and ignorance spoil this perfect place.

Murdoch purchased National Geography in September of 2015. Do these photographs seem any less professional or spectacular that the photographs before 2015?

"It is definitely about the TV channels which is why the buyer is 21st Century Fox. 21st Century Fox is Murdoch’s movie and TV media company, while his print media is owned by his News Corp. company. Murdoch has had an ownership interest in the NatGeo cable channels dating back to 1997. This purchase just expands his ownership to 73% of all of National Geographic’s various media holdings (magazines, maps, TV, etc.).

As for grants, I doubt much will change. Murdoch bought a 73% interest in the “for-profit” media company, National Geographic Partners. THE NATIONAL GEOGRAPHY SOCIETY, which dispenses the research grants, is still an independent non-profit. The Society not only owns a 27% stake in National Geographic Partners, but it just received $725 Million from Fox to add to its endowment.

For more info, see the NatGeo website: http://news.nationalgeographic.com/2015/09/150909-21st-century-fox-media-partnership/
