In House of Murdoch, Sons Set
About an Elaborate OverhaulSince taking over two years ago, James and Lachlan
Murdoch seem determined to rid the company of the
old-guard culture on which their father built his empire.
By BROOKS BARNES (https://www.nytimes.com/by/brooks-barnes) and SYDNEY EMBER (https://www.nytimes.com/by/sydney-ember)APRIL 22, 2017

The sun was setting in New York as James Murdoch, looking confident in cream pants and a dark blazer, stepped before 350 guests in a glass-walled concert hall and waxed poetic about his pet TV channel and its dedication to “scientific literacy.”
The event on Wednesday night was an advertising showcase for National Geographic, which Mr. Murdoch, 44, has doted on (https://www.nytimes.com/2016/11/15/business/media/a-trip-to-mars-signals-a-new-look-for-national-geographic-channel.html) since becoming chief executive of its parent company, 21st Century Fox. As a person who cares deeply about “issues related to the environment, conservation, exploration and education,” he told the crowd, “I’m personally grateful for the important work National Geographic does.”

They're turning fox into a liberal station, subtly, but the needle is a moving

When they become another MSNBC, they can bitch and moan about photo ID's, allowing men to follow girls/women into public restrooms, discrimination in vetting Muslim immigrants, and how global warming is responsible for terrorism. At which point, like MSNBC, they will discover nobody is watching.

Honest question, other than a few guests that are clearly liberal, which host is? Tucker, The Five gang, Hannity are all conservative or libertarian conservative.

The straight news people are fair.

I have fox on all day in my shop next to my house and at lunch I walk over and putvit on at home I'm not saying they are left but it seems to me that it's changing towards the left. Here's an article about a year old http://conservativetribune.com/rush-malkin-fox-news/

Shepherd Smith is looking more and more confident these days. Dana Perino is much less "conservative" than previously. On the 5 there's good old Juan and Bob Beckel (who is becoming more obnoxious by the minute).

I think it's more of a question of freedom to speak. Greg Gutfeld looked very uneasy Friday, having to close down the last Factor show.

Checked out your link. It looks like Rush and Malkin were thinking along those same lines over a year ago---that Fox was increasingly leaning to the left.


If you’ve noticed Fox News becoming more of a shill for establishment candidates and liberal causes lately, well, you’re not alone. After a major shakeup at the network, several major conservative pundits — including Rush Limbaugh and Michelle Malkin — have started to push back against the network’s leftward drift.
