James Murdoch announced his resignation from the Board of Directors of News Corp, the company that serves as the parent of Fox News, on Friday.
Murdoch announced his resignation in a letter that cited “disagreements over certain editorial content published by the Company’s news outlets and certain other strategic decisions.”
The younger Murdoch, who was handed control of News Corp from his father, media mogul Rupert Murdoch, in 2011, has long been known to harbor liberal and left-leaning sympathies. He’s openly discussed his grievances with the nominally conservative Fox News network in a fashion one might expect of an MSNBC or CNN executive in a previous interview with the New Yorker.
He had donated to elitist neoliberal Democrat Pete Buttigieg in the 2020 primary, all but solidifying his left-wing preferences.
The exodus of the younger Murdoch could signal a return of Fox News to its conservative roots, for which the network became know for-often to the fury of liberals- during the tenure of Chairman and CEO Roger Ailes. In recent months, the network has become something of an MSNBC lite, with Sunday show anchors such as Chris Wallace all but cheering on liberal Democrats.
Murdoch’s departure all but certainly seems to have been political in nature from his resignation letter. The heir may have been involved in attempts to silence, stifle or water down the content presented by primetime host Tucker Carlson, who liberals have targeted in a vociferous yet thus-unsuccessful deplatforming campaign
James Murdoch’s departure from the business leaves Lachan Murdoch and his father Rupert as the most powerful figures within the company.
Parler CEO John Matze Forced to Flee Home Under Deluge of Left-Wing Terror Threats
Matze is suing Amazon for deplatforming Parler.
Parler CEO John Matze has been forced to flee his home and go into hiding after receiving an onslaught of left-wing death threats. Parler, a free speech social media platform, has been temporarily shut down in an extensive deplatforming campaign. Amazon promptly cut Parler’s access to its Web Services after the US Capitol riot earlier this month, cherry-picking examples of content that violate Parler’s terms of service and claiming the platform is being used for violent purposes.
Matze made the frank admission in a court filing for Parler’s lawsuit against Amazon, requesting that the court keep any disclosures about his personal life and location secret. Parler is currently suing Amazon in federal court for its immediate revocation of Parler’s hosting agreement, arguing that Amazon agreed to provide 30 days notice before any potential termination of Parler’s hosting, pursuant to the party’s original agreement.
Matze reveals that he’s been forced to leave his home and go into hiding with his family, citing Amazon Web Services’ “vilification” of his company.
Employees of Amazon have allegedly been threatened and harassed as well for shutting down Parler. The court filing in favor of redaction references these threats in requesting the court provide redaction of personal information to both sides.
“Both sides of this dispute have shown that their employees have suffered real harassment and threats—including, on both sides, death threats—owing to the charged nature of this litigation.
Parler therefore agrees with AWS that safety and security concerns justify the limited sealings requested here,” Parler requests in the Amazon lawsuit.
Parler’s administrators are still seeking to return the free speech social media platform to full operation, although it could take weeks to bring it back online. They may have learned a lesson about the futility of contracting hosting services with a Big Tech monopoly such as Amazon.
