Welcome to a discussion about the upcoming 5th Revolution in the US, which I’ve titled the “Revenge Revolution.” For more about the Revenge Revolution and the author, Entry #1. Periodically I write a “sense check” to assess whether a revolution in the US is possible or whether the entire exercise is based on a statistical aberration — i.e., a roughly 50-year cycle between major upheavals in the US. Entry #430 was the most recent “sense check.”
BEGIN ENTRY #475: After Entry #474, I had no intention of giving Fox any more ink. What changed? My mind was an article in the New York Times about remarks from the CEO of Fox News.
Lachlan Murdoch (son of Rupert Murdoch), while speaking during an investor conference, praised Suzanne Scott, the chief executive of Fox News Media (Fox seems as if they have a lot of executives with lofty titles but not much authority). “The brand is incredibly strong. The core business is incredibly strong,” Mr. Murdoch said.
Asked to comment on the Dominion Voting Systems lawsuit, Mr. Murdoch again defended Fox News from its detractors. “A news organization has an obligation — and it is an obligation — to report news fulsomely, wholesomely and without fear or favor, and that’s what Fox News has always done and that’s what Fox News will always do,” Mr. Murdoch said.
Murdoch’s claim about the integrity of Fox News might be the most outrageous quote of the year. Anyone who claims Fox News is a credible news organization with a fair-and-balanced approach deserves the “Liar, liar pants on fire” award for 2023.
The court filings in the Dominion suit include quotes and texts from the primetime talking heads at Fox. Each of the talking heads admitted they knew they were lying to the audience. The icing on the cake was an admission by Rupert Murdoch, CEO of all the News Corp holdings, that he knew the talking heads were lying and did nothing to stop them.
So sunny boy Lachlan, if the CEO of the Murdoch empire – remember he’s your father — admitted the broadcast content was false, please tell me please why Fox should be considered a news organization, let alone a credible one? All those connected with the organization have admitted lying in the Fox lair for lira (ok dollars). I’ll await your response. (The title? How many times do you get to use the same four letters in four different words?). END ENTRY #475
