James Murdoch departed Fox in March. But it is clear that he did extensive damage before that. Fox News has been in steep decline for years, with only Hannity and Tucker Carlson holding the line against the network becoming just another leftist enemedia propaganda outlet, pumping out disinformation in a desperate attempt to protect the deep state swamp and discredit and destroy President Trump. James Murdoch at the head of Fox News was like making Adolf Hitler Prime Minister of Great Britain during World War II.

In April, Murdoch gave $2,800 to former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg’s campaign, the largest amount possible to a primary candidate. Appearing at Vanity Fair’s New Establishment summit in October, Murdoch declaredButtigieg has the “composure, character, thoughtfulness, courage to handle some of the hardest challenges that we have.”
During the same discussion, Murdoch admitted that he no longer watches Fox News and lamented the departure of longtime anchor Shepard Smith…
