The new parent company of Fox News has chosen its board members, and some of them are highly questionable.
According to several Tuesday morning reports, former “Republican” Speaker of the House of Representatives Paul Ryan is among the group. The failed 2012 Vice Presidential candidate has been friends with the Murdoch family – owners of Fox – for years.
“Ryan and three other board of directors were appointed on Tuesday. It was a necessary step as the Murdoch family wraps up the Disney-Fox deal,” according to CNN. “Disney is acquiring most of 21st Century Fox, including its movie studio and entertainment cable channels.
The parts of Fox that are not being acquired by Disney will be a standalone entity, simply called Fox, the report said. Fox will be the parent company of Fox News, according to the report.
The other notable board member of the new Fox is Rolando Hernandez. Hernandez is the CEO of Telemundo, the Spanish-speaking news organization owned by NBC.
The new announcements come as Fox viewers are particularly miffed at the network. The company suspended Judge Jeanine Pirro for non-controversial comments about Sharia Law, and then subsequently hired former Democratic National Committee head Donna Brazile as a commentator. Both signify a move towards the political left.
Big League Politics reported:
The former head of the Democratic National Committee who ensured that Hillary R. Clinton won the party’s presidential nomination in 2016 has joined Fox News, just days after the network announced that Judge Jeanine Pirro’s show would be cancelled for this entire week.
“I fully admit that in my previous lives as a campaign staffer, presidential campaign manager and Democrat Party official, my own lack of civility in the heat of battle has been on full display. And it wasn’t pretty,” Donna Brazile said in an op-ed explaining why she joined the network.
“Brazile, a veteran Democratic strategist, will offer political analysis across both FNC and FOX Business Network’s daytime and primetime programming,” according to a statement by the network.
An admitted leftist who has fought to destroy conservatism has now joined the ranks of the formerly-conservative network. It is another move towards the left for the the network, which has effectively become CNN-lite.

More than 40 College and Young Republican Groups Sign Letter Demanding Action on Big Tech Censorship from Senate GOP
Calling out Silicon Valley’s election interference.
Almost 50 youth conservative organizations, ranging from Young to College Republican Chapters and America First student groups, signed onto an open letter on Friday demanding action from Senate Republicans on Big Tech censorship and political authoritarianism.
The young conservatives and nationalists cited the recent suppression of the Hunter Biden email scandal, with platforms such as Twitter implementing an unprecedented level of political censorship to squelch a New York Post report detailing insider foreign business dealings and Joe Biden’s knowledge of them.
Read the letter in its entirely here.
In a statement provided to Big League Politics, College Republicans United at Arizona State University emphasized the need for conservatives to unite against the authoritarian alliance of the Democratic Party and Silicon Valley tech monopolies.
“Democrats use to be the loudest critics of ‘Corporate America’ trampling on the rights of average Americans. These days they are nothing more then corporate apologists who protect crony capitalism.”
Populist Senator Josh Hawley has taken point in the drive to hold Silicon Valley oligarchs to account for their censorship of the American people, but the anti-Big Tech movement has been hamstrung by malcontents within the Senate GOP caucus unwilling to do little more than whine about censorship, while actively undermining a policy solution.
