The mogul says that News Corp. has been meeting privately with members of the Parliament committee investigating his empire.

"powerful person," 1670s, from Great Mogul, Mongol emperor of India after the conquest of 1520s, from Persian and Arabic mughal, mughul, alteration of Mongol (q.v.), the Asiatic people.
"elevation on a ski slope," 1961, probably [Barnhart] from Scandinavian (cf. dialectal Norwegian mugje, fem. muga, "a heap, a mound"), or [OED] from southern German dialect mugel in the same sense.
