The Murdoch family fired Bill O’Reilly, the top personality on cable news for the past 15 years, on Wednesday.
James and Lachlan Murdoch, two committed leftists, have a much different vision than their father for the FOX News channel.
The new FOX News will not include Bill O’Reilly. In fact, the Murdoch family did not even allow Bill to say good-bye to his friends and millions of fans.
The company coldly wiped Bill O’Reilly’s name from “The Factor” on Wednesday night.
Kathryn Murdoch hates Donald Trump and regularly trashes the president on Twitter.
They HATE Donald Trump!
MORE…. From Finanacial Times:
Murdoch’s support for Trump distinguishes him from some of his children, including James, who told more than one friend of his dismay that his father was backing the Trump candidacy. James’s wife, Kathryn, backed Hillary Clinton during the campaign and has been a vocal critic of the new president on Twitter. In September Kathryn tweeted: “A vote for Trump is a vote for climate catastrophe”, while on the night of the president’s stunning election victory she wrote: “I can’t believe this is happening. I am so ashamed.”
James and Kathryn are committed environmentalists: she is on the board of the Environmental Defense Fund, which a Fox News report recently labelled a “leftwing group”, while James wrote in The Washington Post in 2009 that “conservation-minded conservatives” were “missing in the heated partisanship of today’s politics”.
She hates President Trump.
These are the people running FOX News today.
