To bad Ruppish.
The Murdoch family are wholly responsible for the divisive nature of American politics today. The lies they trotted out are proof that their end game is a fascist regime where they decide their truth is the only truth. You should have arrested and imprisoned them years ago.
Peddling lies has been ruinous to America and the world.
The corporation may change, slightly, but I’m sure they’ll continue doing whatever it takes to get a lot of money flowing in… regardless of what it does to the world.
The numbers should go in the opposite direction.
Long past time.
Now which old jewish guy will republican pin blame on???
Murdoch proved that “No one ever went broke underestimating the intelligence of the American public.”
From HCR’s Substack column 9/21/2023:
Angelo Carusone, president of Media Matters for America, said today that “Murdoch created a uniquely destructive force in American democracy and public life, one that ushered in an era of division where racist and post-truth politics thrive.” Margaret Sullivan, formerly the Washington Post’s media critic, wrote in The Guardian that FNC was “a shameless propaganda outfit, reaping massive profits even as it attacked core democratic values such as tolerance, truth and fair elections.” Murdoch, she wrote, wreaked “untold havoc on American democracy.”
Murdoch sees it differently. In his resignation letter, he attacked “bureaucracies” who wanted to “silence those who would question their provenance and purpose” and “elites” who “have open contempt for those who are not members of their rarefied class.” “Most of the media is in cahoots with those elites, peddling political narratives rather than pursuing the truth,” he wrote.
Forbes estimates that their media empire has enabled Murdoch and his family to amass a fortune of more than $17 billion.
The family has made $17,000,000,000 spreading lies, reporting alternative facts and supporting wannabe dictators with the help of 74M greedy and/or ignorant Americans with a vote. As PT Barnum would say, there are more born every minute.
At least he knew it was time to go. Hopefully Biden will come to see the light as well. After all, this week Joe Biden Tells Donors Real Reason He Ran For President, Then Repeats Exact Same Story Word for Word Minutes Later. “O.K. Dad, you already told us that story”.
“Hate to see you go, Bye.”
He’s a fine example of GQP family values: 6 children by 3 different wives. (This cartoon reminds me of my old Elgin pocket watch, made in 1917 according to its serial number, so it’s almost as old as Rupert, lol. It belonged to my great-grandfather, his son, my dad, and now me. And it still keeps excellent time, if I wind it.)
Rupert Murdoch. The Joseph Goebbels of media
The problem is it will be like North Korea each new generation is worst.
I would love to know if Clay had to hand draw that engraving, or if he drew it without perspective, then a computer slanted it.
He proved poisoning the minds of people is quite profitable.
@Flashaaway- True and maybe so but I think that as witnessed and evident with good ol’ Mr. Trump, that when you have money, you can manipulate a lot of people and situations. Just ask the Koch brothers!
He’s still Chairman Emeritus and can overrule his son.
Just as when George Soros retired and handed over control to his son, who says that he’s even more political and more leftist. Guess who just inherited control from Rupert Murdoch?
Methinks that Bennett rejoices prematurely. But that surprises whom?
His work here is done.Don’t expect his spawn to be an improvement.
Rupert is taking a gap year between Fox and Hell.
Should be 7:22 am!
I know of 36 different species of fish who are insulted to be wrapped in THE NEW YORK POST
$787 million was the tip of the iceberg, Faux is facing Billions in legal liability. Rupert needs to be civilly prosecuted every bit as much as Donald needs to be criminally prosecuted.
Epic contributor to our decline.
You must be confused your are talking about CNN and MSDNC
and leaving his son aka Rupert 2.0 to carry on the lies, hate, and division
Nicely done, sir.
A long time coming.
Actually, the American people who demand this crap are responsible. Too many people on the Left on this site make victims out of the 74 million. A strong democracy demand self education. The 74 million willfully seek uneducation.
