Just watching another episode of, "The Murdochs: Empire of Influence" (I'm sure that you can search a link up suitable for your location), and it's amazing how politicians here hobbled him by placing limits on what his newspapers and free to air TV channels could say (you have to actually pay here to get his hateful racist mighty white B.S. through his cable/satellite network) and yet U.K. and U.S. right wing pollies enabled him to be where he is today. :-(

... U.K. and U.S. right wing pollies enabled him to be where he is today.
And vice versa. It's a mutual thing. The old-fashioned print newspapers that Murdoch bought up (before the internet) did a lot of the heavy lifting to get the harder right-wing elements of the established political parties, first appointed to senior roles, and secondly, elected to form governments - starting in the U.K. with Margaret Thatcher.

Maybe Murdoch now realises he has pushed the pendulum too far, aided by the amplification of social media, or maybe not. I wouldn't trust anything he says, yet.

No surprise here:


Watchdog raps Murdoch's Australian broadcaster over climate coverage


Truth be damned for the sake of short term greedy profits?...

All in the world according to Murdoch...


Except... Ohhh wait just one moment...

This is OUR world that is getting trashed.

Say what? Rupert sacks Sucker's ex-producer for telling lies, what's going on?

Fox News producer out after onscreen message calling President Biden a 'wannabe dictator'.

Now if he was telling the truth I could understand that so what's going on? Is Rupert trying to turn a corner?

Rupert's Fake News Central is again back in the real news.

Ex-Tucker Carlson Producer Goes Scorched Earth on Fox News Executives, Replacement Host Lawrence Jones.

Gregg Re, formerly a producer for Tucker Carlson Tonight, is on the warpath against Fox News after it announced that it will be laying off the remainder of his old show’s staff after a few more weeks of work on Fox News Tonight.

In a series of tweets on Monday night, Re went scorched earth on Fox News’ executives, most notably Executive Vice President of Primetime Programming Meade Cooper, and the efforts of the network’s temporary replacements for Carlson.

“Meade Cooper did not simply fire all of Tucker’s old team,” began Re. ‘It’s important to capture the callousness. First, she let the employees hear about the news of their show’s cancellation from a Fox press release. Then, Meade told the employees to hunt around the Fox website to see if they could maybe find another gig.”....

Rupert's Fake News empire continues to bleed more cash over its blatant lies and conspiracy theories.

Fox News reaches $US12 million settlement with former Tucker Carlson producer who testified in Dominion case.

Fox News will pay one of its former producers $US12 million ($18 million) to settle her claims that she faced a discriminatory workplace and that the network coerced her into giving false or misleading testimony in Dominion Inc.'s defamation lawsuit, her lawyer says.

The payout to Abby Grossberg will settle all litigation that she brought against Fox Corporation, Fox News Network and her former co-workers, including former Fox host Tucker Carlson.

The settlement was revealed with the filing of a Notice of Voluntary Dismissal in a lawsuit she had brought this year in Manhattan federal court.

The judge accepted the filing and closed the case.

Although the notice did not reference the terms of the settlement, Grossberg's attorney Parisis G. Filippatos said in an interview that his client would receive $US12 million.....
But what was the total cost?

Anyhow, what happened to all those here that use to breath and preach Rupert's fake words?

Compulsive and delusional liar Alexander is really showing his lowlife status now.

Jones Blows Through Millions Despite Being Ordered to Pay Nearly $1.5 Billion to the Families of Sandy Hook Victims.

.......The families affected by the Sandy Hook shooting have expressed their concern over Jones' lavish spending.

In an August 29 filing, their attorneys demanded that he reduce his personal expenses to "a reasonable level." If he fails to comply, they plan to ask the judge to bar him from further wasting estate assets, appoint a trustee to oversee his spending, or even dismiss the bankruptcy case altogether.

Despite his financial troubles, Jones continues to solicit money from his radio audience to cover his legal fees. However, he has shown no signs of curbing his extravagant lifestyle. He told his audience, "If anything, I like to go to nice restaurants. That is my deal."

He attempted to justify his spending habits by stating, "I like to go on a couple of nice vacations a year, but I think I pretty much have earned that in this fight."
Maybe it's time for Alexander to eat at a restaurant in a local jail for a while.

That's far too nice for him, how about limiting his daily expenditure to say $10 (including food, fuel, clothes etc.)

Rupert's fake news network is bleeding cash fast as the fallout continues for pedaling lies.

The Fox Lawsuits Piling Up on Rupert Murdoch's Desk.

New York City's pension funds and the state of Oregon sued Fox Corporation this week—the latest legal headache faced by Rupert Murdoch's company over the alleged broadcasting of lies about the 2020 election.

The lawsuit, filed in Delaware, accuses the Fox News' parent company of harming shareholders by opening itself up to defamation lawsuits, including one Fox News agreed to settle with the voting machine company Dominion Voting Systems for nearly $800 million.

New York City's pension funds are long-term shareholders of Fox Corporation, with shares valued at $27.7 million as of the end of August. Oregon, which joined the lawsuit, holds shares in the company worth approximately $5.2 million.

"Fox's board of directors has blatantly disregarded the need for journalistic standards and failed to put safeguards in place, despite having a business model that invites defamation litigation," New York City Comptroller Brad Lander, who manages the city's pension funds, said in a statement......

I wonder if that young fake B.S. spreading moron Alexander is now regretting his chosen career path.

Judge rules Alex Jones can't use bankruptcy protection to avoid paying Sandy Hook families.

A Texas judge has ruled that Infowars host Alex Jones cannot use bankruptcy protection to avoid paying more than $1.1 billion to families who sued over his conspiracy theories that the Sandy Hook school massacre was a hoax.

The decision is another significant defeat for Jones in the wake of juries in Texas and Connecticut punishing him over spreading falsehoods about the nation's deadliest school shooting. U.S. District Judge Christopher Lopez of Houston issued the ruling Thursday.

Jones filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection last year and more recent financial documents submitted by his attorneys put his personal net worth around $14 million. But Lopez ruled that those protections do not apply over findings of “willful and malicious” conduct.....
