8 Shocking Revelations from the NYT Investigation Into Fox News and Rupert Murdoch's Media Empire

8 Shocking Revelations from the NY Times Investigation Into Fox News and Rupert Murdoch’s Media Empire

by Mediaite Staff | Apr 3rd, 2019, 9:15 am

The New York Times just published a massive investigation into Rupert Murdoch‘s empire, their control over Fox News, and the future of his family in the aftermath of their sale of 21st Century Fox to Disney.

The story, penned by Jonathan Mahler and Jim Rutenberg, is fascinating and packed with new reporting on Fox News as well as the Murdochs, who now run Fox Corporation — the slimmer company left behind after the sale that includes Fox News as its most profitable entity.

As the Times puts it:

A six-month investigation by The New York Times covering three continents and including more than 150 interviews has described how Mr. Murdoch and his feuding sons turned their media outlets into right-wing political influence machines that have destabilized democracy in North America, Europe and Australia.


Lachlan Murdoch, Rupert’s eldest son, is running Fox Corporation. James Murdoch, who is more liberal than both his brother and father, is heading up a family office to manage the Murdochs’ ballooning fortune (the 21st Century Fox sale made Murdoch’s sons billionaires.) Rupert is overseeing the pair — for now.

6. The full article in the NYT is extraordinarily long and probing. Please read it if you can.

Murdoch is behind everything from Thatcher to Reagan to the Bushes to Brexit and Trump. They're the voice of white nationalism across the English speaking world, including Australia and no doubt New Zealand. Between Rupert and Putin, they've made big strides toward carving up the world as we knew it. Whether this piece actually puts them together, I don't know yet. I'm just starting part2.
