Will Lachlan Murdoch sue Chris Stirewalt? Of course not! Stirwalt has no problem publicly outlining the intended mis and disinformation broadcast on Fox News and it has nothing to do with Murdoch’s ideology. Their alliance is soley with business and wealthyconservatives whose primary interest was fattening themselves on profiting from others. The Murdoch’s aren’t purveyor’s of news or information but influncers hired guns for sale and nothing offends them more than any drive to reveal or prevent them from that goal. That’s why they have taken to threatening Crikey in Australia and not Stirwalt in the US because the laws say they can and the world gets the message.
Nonetheless, in his memoir, Stirewalt maintains that Fox News’s alliance with Trump and other Republican political candidates has nothing to do with ideology. Instead it has everything to do with delivering ratings and fattening profits, without caring that its top-rated host, Tucker Carlson, endorses conspiracy theories that radicalize violent, far-right white supremacists, including ones who staged the deadly January 6 Capitol attack.Former Fox News politics editor says network stoked ‘paranoia and hatred’ | Fox News | The Guardian
