It seems Lachlan and his father Rupert have significantly different views “in public” than they do “in private”. Rupert’s views and concerns were expressed very clearly in demanding Fox News “pivot” in order to save its ratings and share value from severely Bungie diving. In order to do that truth, facts, and their real beliefs needed to be abandoned in favour of what their audience wants to hear and not what it needed to. Lachlan well he simply abandoned showing his beliefs years ago when he proved to be a failure as an executive and investor years ago. He burnt millions with One Tel, Ch10 and is now aiming for strike 3.
