This is absolutely shameful.
In a shocking turn of events, the founder of Fox News, Rupert Murdoch, threw former President Donald Trump under the bus and told him to let go of his past obsessions because he could stagger conservatives as political tension rises across America.
According to Deadline, Murdoch hit Trump and stated, “The current American political debate is profound, whether about education or welfare or economic opportunity. It is crucial that conservatives play an active, forceful role in that debate, but that will not happen if President Trump stays focused on the past. The past is the past, and the country is now in a contest to define the future.”
Currently, Murdoch’s son Lachlan Murdoch serves as the Fox Corp CEO.
This isn’t the first time former President Trump and Fox News have had issues. Trump was furious after Fox News called Arizona for President Biden in the 2020 presidential election, which Trump believed was too early to tell.
Like Trump, Murdoch strongly believes that there is major censorship of conservative voices by social media giants such as Facebook.
“Both of these issues highlight the fundamental need for algorithmic transparency. The idea falsely promoted by the platforms that algorithms are somehow objective and solely scientific is complete nonsense. Algorithms are subjective and they can be manipulated by people to kill competition and damage other people, publishers and businesses,” Murdoch said in the past.
