Murdoch to Ailes: Tilt the Election to Anyone But Trump – EVEN HILLARY
Rupert Murdoch didn’t want Donald Trump to win the presidential election. According to a longtime friend of the former Fox News CEO, Roger Ailes, Murdoch wanted to tilt the election to any other candidate than Trump, even if it was Hillary!
Ailes passed away in May at the age of 76.
Media mogul Rupert Murdoch wanted to tilt the U.S. presidential election to any candidate but President Trump, according to a longtime friend of former Fox News CEO Roger Ailes.
“Murdoch instructed Ailes to tilt to anyone but Trump, Ailes confided to me before he was fired, even Hillary. (Ailes, for his part, characterized Murdoch’s periodic efforts at interference as similar to Nixon’s instructions to bomb this or that country — best ignored.),” Michael Wolff wrote in a column Thursday, one day before the one-year anniversary of Ailes’ resignation.
The former writer for USA Today and the UK edition of GQ insisted Ailes’ unapologetic support for President Trump ultimately led to his firing by the parent company’s Murdoch family.
“It was Ailes’ tacit support of Trump that, in part, made his removal from Fox all the more urgent for the Murdochs. And it was not just the liberal sons who were agitated by Ailes’ regard for Trump, but also the father, whose tabloid, the New York Post, helped create Trump, but who found him now, with great snobbery, not of ‘our’ conservative class,” Wolff wrote.
James and Lachlan Murdoch, two committed leftists with perhaps a different vision (or secretly the same) 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.
They wiped Bill O’Reilly’s name from “The Factor” on Wednesday night.
In another sign of the direction of the new FOX News the Murdoch family not only dumped Bill, but promoted far left hacks Bob Beckel and Juan Williams. Bob Beckel was subsequently fired for making racist comments to an IT staffer.
Megyn Kelly was also very anti-Trump during the 2016 presidential election. She eventually moved to NBC, however; her ratings are in the tank.
Fox News’ Shepard Smith is also anti-Trump with his most recent statements that the White House keeps getting caught in lie after lie following the report that Donald Trump Jr. met with a Russian lawyer. Hannity unleashed on Shepard Smith over his anti-Trump comments.
Aren’t there enough anti-Trump news outlets? People go to Fox News to get away from the Trump bashing. If Fox News doesn’t change, they will continue to lose viewership.
