Republicans cripple FCC to protect Fox News

"Murdoch revealed Fox News Corporation's role as a wing of the Republican Party" - Letters from An American

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) regulates media firms and is currently deadlocked. Republicans have blocked President Biden's nomination of Gigi Sohn to the commission. They accuse her of having tweeted "I believe that Fox News has had the most negative impact on our democracy. It's state-sponsored propaganda, with few if any opposing viewpoints."

Rupert Murdoch has admitted to providing confidential information to Jared Kushner.

Deeply corrupt

During Trump's campaign, [News Corp CEO] Rupert [Murdoch] provided Trump's son-in-law and senior Advisor, Jared Kushner, with Fox confidential information about Biden's ads, along with debate strategy. Ex.600, R. Murdoch 210:6-9; 213:17-20; Ex.603 (providing Kushner a preview of Biden's ads before they were public).

While this, at the moment, is an allegation and not a fact, Dominion signaled in its citation that it has significant evidence to back it up. Dominion says the allegation is substantiated by two passages of Murdoch's deposition, which has not been released in full, and another exhibit — likely an email or text message. The behavior described in the Dominion filing is deeply corrupt. Fox News was entrusted with Biden's campaign ads in advance because the Biden campaign trusted it to operate as a legitimate news corporation. Murdoch abused that trust in an effort to give the Trump campaign an edge in the 2020 election. - Popular Information

Murdoch NEWS CORP helps the GOP spread disinformation

Top Fox executive involved

"Executives at the highest levels of the Fox Corporation and the Fox News Network knowingly permitted Fox News Channel personalities to spread false conspiracy theories about the election in order to protect their profits. It includes testimony from Rupert Murdoch, the chair of the Fox Corporation, showing that Murdoch and his son Lachlan Murdoch, the executive chair and chief executive officer of the Fox Corporation, as well as Suzanne Scott, the chief executive officer of Fox News Media, were all deeply involved in the question of how to deal with Trump’s lies and with the personalities who were echoing those lies, without losing viewership.

FOX NEWS pushes racism and election deniers to sell more ads on Tucker Carlson show

Anything for ratings

Rupert Murdoch spoke with Scott frequently, and testified: “I’m a journalist at heart. I like to be involved in these things.” Lachlan Murdoch, as well, was in the loop with his father and Scott. Ultimately, although they knew that claims of massive election fraud were unfounded, they decided to give the lies airtime anyway to stop their audience from abandoning them for other channels. - Letters from An American

TakeAway: Hold corporations that would destroy democracy for ratings accountable for the harm they cause. Call your Senator to confirm Gigi Sohn to the FCC.
