From popularity and admiration to defamation and loathing by the public, Conrad Black is a man who has seen it all. Born into a wealthy and respected family, Conrad always felt that he was different from the rest of his family. His parents were very cultured and sophisticated people while his elder brother was a talented athlete. Young Conrad felt he lacked his family’s refinement though he grew up to be a very clever and astute young man. He was sent to some of the best educational institutes to study where his inherent penchant for fraud began to show its ugly head. He stole and sold exam papers in his school to make some quick money and was expelled from college for displaying inappropriate behavior. Nevertheless, it could not be denied that he was highly intelligent and began managing several businesses after college. At one time he controlled one of the world’s largest English language newspaper empires. Over the decade of 2000s, it came to light that there were several irregularities in the way the funds of the companies he held were managed. He was found guilty on several charges and told to pay a massive amount as compensation and fine.
