Today’s Republican party would look a lot different if Rupert Murdoch never ended the picture. Thanks to Murdoch allowing his anchors to say essentially anything on Fox News, anger and rage is at an all-time high in America.
Murdoch, though, does not seem to like Donald Trump very much. The two men had a massive falling out after Fox News called Arizona for Joe Biden on election night. And during a recent speech to share holders, the Australian business mogul claimed Trump is hurting the Conservative movement.
According to Maggie Haberman, Murdoch told share holders, “The current American political debate is profound, whether about education or welfare or economic opportunity. It is crucial that conservatives play an active, forceful role in that debate, but that will not happen if President Trump stays focused on the past. The past is the past, and the country is now in a contest to define the future.”

Of course, the words seem a little ironic considering the ‘news’ Murdoch’s network reports each night. In fact, Fox recently aired a special where Tucker Carlson claimed that the 1/6 insurrection was a ‘false flag operation.’
