Media mogul Rupert Murdoch, 69, said he is all finished with his nine weeks of radiation treatment for prostate cancer -- and that he has no plans of stepping down from his seat as head of his worldwide News Corp Ltd. (The company controls such entities as 20th Century Fox, the Times of London newspaper and the New York Post.) Speaking to reporters in Sydney, Australia, this morning, Murdoch said, "My treatments are over." He also added that the bout of ill health "convinced me of my own immortality."
