I heard a rumour that Wendy Deng Murdoch is a daughter/relative of Deng Xiao Ping. is there any truth in it?
Here’s her Wikipedia write up to search for clues…
There’s not much to go on that I can see. There was this on a google search –
* “During the same period Murdoch cancelled the publication of a book from News Corp.-owned imprint HarperCollins by former Hong Kong Governor Chris Patten that was critical of the Beijing regime. Murdoch ordered HarperCollins to publish a stunningly awful hagiography of Communist Party boss Deng Xiaoping, authored by his daughter Deng Rong, for a $1 million advance.”
