Rupert Murdoch’s Son Doesn’t Watch Fox News and Likes Mayor Pete

Rupert Murdoch’s Son Doesn’t Watch Fox News and Likes Mayor Pete(Bloomberg) — James Murdoch, a son of Fox Corp. founder Rupert Murdoch, said he doesn’t watch the company’s flagship news channel and sees a lot to like in Democratic presidential contender Pete Buttigieg.Murdoch, speaking at Vanity Fair magazine’s New Establishment Summit conference on Wednesday, said cable news channels have become too one-sided politically and “there’s plenty on Fox News I disagree with.”The 46-year-old executive, who worked at his father’s business empire for 25 years, said he was disappointed to hear that Shepard Smith, one of the main hard-news voices at Fox News, had left the network.He also said he doesn’t watch “Succession,” the HBO series modeled in part after the Murdoch family.Murdoch said social issues, such as rising mortality rates for mothers in the U.S., concern him and his wife, Kathryn. While stopping short of an endorsement, Murdoch said he thought Buttigieg, the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, and one of the first openly gay candidates for president, “has the composure, character, thoughtfulness and courage to handle some of the hardest challenges we have.”He said he would like to see politicians rethink how taxes are collected and allocated and recognizes that the wealthy may end up paying more.James, the youngest of three children from Rupert’s second marriage, has always been considered the most progressive member of the clan. He said he does benefit from the success of Fox News, indirectly through a family trust which his father controls.Through his investment firm, Lupa Systems, Murdoch has taken stakes in a number of new-media companies, including the millennial news outlet Vice Media and the Void, a virtual-reality entertainment provider.To contact the reporter on this story: Christopher Palmeri in Los Angeles at cpalmeri1@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Nick Turner at nturner7@bloomberg.net, John J.

Fox News Host Quickly Moves On After GOP Rep. Says Tlaib ‘Hates Jews More Than She Likes Her Grandmother’

Fox News Host Quickly Moves On After GOP Rep. Says Tlaib ‘Hates Jews More Than She Likes Her Grandmother’Fox News anchor Harris Faulkner swiftly brushed aside a Republican congressman’s inflammatory comments about Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) on Tuesday, briefly expressing shock when Rep. Mark Green (R-TN) said Tlaib “hates Jews more than she likes her grandmother” before ultimately moving on.Green, who was part of a group of lawmakers who recently traveled to Israel, appeared on Fox News’ Outnumbered Overtime to discuss Israel’s controversial decision to bar Reps. Tlaib and Ilhan Omar (D-MN) from entering the country.Reacting to the two Muslim congresswomen’s recent press conference denouncing the travel restrictions, Green claimed everything they said in the presser was an “absolute lie” before taking aim at Tlaib, who cried while talking about her Palestinian grandmother.“This grandmother visit and the tears,” he groused. “She hadn’t visited her grandmother for 13 years prior to this. If she really wanted to go see her grandmother, she would have gone.”Noting that Tlaib refused Israel’s offer for her to specifically see her grandmother, Green then added, “Obviously she hates Jews more than she likes her grandmother. Obviously.”“Oh my goodness,” Faulkner uttered, apparently taken aback.Instead of addressing the Tennessee lawmaker’s incendiary remarks, the Fox News anchor went right back to her set of questions she wanted to ask Green, which centered around Muslims serving in Israel’s Knesset and Tlaib’s dismissal of criticism of the group that was set to sponsor her Israel trip.The Fox anchor, meanwhile, never circled back to Green’s comments, letting the incendiary accusation sit without any pushback.The Tennessee congressman’s remarks come on the heels of President Donald Trump saying he doesn’t “buy” Tlaib’s tears, claiming he’s “watched her violence, craziness and, most importantly, WORDS, for far too long” while also accusing her of hating “all Jewish people.”Read more at The Daily Beast.Got a tip?
