Murdoch is never in trouble because news isn’t his business. Good bad or ugly as long as the attention is on him he’s ahead and a winner. The issue really is “fake product” is being delivered and sold as news and information. If commercial advertisers did the same as Murdoch they’d be jailed like Australia’s Peter Foster has time and time again.
Murdoch’s conservative media outlets seem to have launched a coordinated effort to nudge Trump off the stage. It is not going well.
