Feedback loop fails him
Along with Murdoch, there's Charles Koch who is now claiming that the hundreds of millions of dollars that his empire has sunk into the Republican election machine was a mistake. The Koch Brother's dark money was such a major cause of our partisan politics over the past thirty years. Now at the age of 85, after he saw brother David pass, Libertarian Charles is having a come to Jesus moment? He saw what the Frankenstein monster that he helped sew together has done to our democracy so now he's offering a mea culpa? If he really wanted to make a difference and show he's truly sorry for his sins, he needs to come out and say without equivocation that Trump is a malignancy that the country must turn away from. Koch wouldn't divulge who he voted for which of course is his right. However, if he really wants forgiveness for all the pain the Koch money has wrought, he'd have shown the courage to denounce the narcissist and chief directly. And for good measure, how about donating a billion or two to help fight global climate change that his corporation helped to create.
I think you give Murdoch too much credit. Perhaps he's afraid of a new "Trump TV" network taking viewership, and sponsors, away from Fox News. It's certainly not for the "good of the country". That is why Fox News has changed its tone, and that alone explains it.
Fox is hungrily awaiting 4 years of Biden bashing, and Murdoch is probably relieved to be able to remove Trump as de facto assignment editor. By the way, Eric, many thanks for the Tesky & Grunwald video. What a treat!
Oh please he left a sinking ship that all. He wants to be in good with the new administration so he can get more media consolidation under his odorous armpit.
Yes, but. How many of the people in question actually watch Fux Noise for daytime news and how many actually are watching while TucKKKer KKKarlson, Sean Hannity, and Laura Ingraham are lying on a nightly basis?
Peggy Noonan is the last person I would have expected to have a firm command of the obvious.
