The FoxNews-isation of Australia on full display at Murdoch’s SkyNews. We all know Christian Porter was the biggest story yesterday, but there wasn’t a single video on Sky’s YouTube or Facebook. Just more right-wing grievance and LNP propaganda. #MurdochRoyalCommission
For now, Rupert Murdoch still feels he has time. Even today his pension pot sits untouched. ‘Every pore of [Murdoch’s] body is driven by ambition,’ broadcaster Piers Morgan said. ‘I would be astonished if there isn’t at least one more big play’
Murdoch’s influence is exemplified by Fox News, the liberal-baiting network that became America’s most-watched cable television channel in 2016
The alternative is to re-engineer Murdoch’s corporate interests, from non-core asset sales to recombining parts of Fox with News Corp. Such an option would be seriously considered if his son Lachlan decided he didn’t want to run the business any more
Murdoch’s sons — Lachlan and James — are at the centre of the succession battle. When the next generation assumes responsibility, the power to determine the family trust’s position is also dispersed equally between the 90-year-old’s four eldest children
Much rides on what Murdoch’s elder son Lachlan chooses to run: whether he will put his energy into an entrepreneurial venture or oversee legacy assets. From those choices, a chessboard of options emerge for the family business
Flat-out bullshit from Murdoch’s @couriermail . I DID NOT refuse to express confidence in Albo. Of course he can win Queensland I DID refuse to be interviewed by the #CourierFail because it’s an LNP campaign pamphlet masquerading as a newspaper. This article just proves my point
My lawyers have just sent Murdoch’s Credlin a formal letter demanding an immediate on-air apology for her lies yesterday. She lied that I was “data harvesting” petition signatures. The parliamentary petition site simply makes that impossible.
Murdoch’s Fox News today describing this violent invasion of the US Capitol as a “huge victory for these protesters” and comparing it to the peaceful protest outside a pro-Trump senator’s house. The same Murdoch who dominates Australian media.
A massive blast from James Murdoch pinning responsibility for US violence on far-right media led by Murdoch’s FoxNews. James spent decades inside the Murdoch machine, and knows it better than anyone. The case for #MurdochRoyalCommission is undeniable.
Watch former Australian PRime Minister Malcolm Turnbull stuff Paul Kelly into a locker over News Corp's position on climate change. (Kelly is editor-at-large for one of Rupert Murdoch’s key properties— The Australian.) This is fantastic...
