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.

New York Times Writer Blames Evangelical Christians for Chinese Coronavirus
Not China’s Communist Party.
A New York Times writer published a column largely assigning blame for America’s Chinese coronavirus epidemic on Evangelical Christians.
In Stewart’s column, titled ‘The Religious Right’s Hostility to Science is Crippling Our Coronavirus Response,’ she frames conservative Christians for a supposed lacking national effort to contain the disease. Stewart alleges that Christians within the administration are preventing the federal government from recognizing ‘science,’ repeating a trope long alleged by liberals that their political opponents are supposedly ignorant of the discipline.
In the article, Stewart claims that “Donald Trump rose to power with the determined assistance of a movement that denies science, bashes government and prioritized loyalty over professional expertise. In the current crisis, we are all reaping what that movement has sown.”
She fails that recognize that scientific experts on viral outbreaks such as Dr. Anthony Fauci have informed the federal government’s response since the beginning of the crisis.
Stewart fails to mention that it was progressive liberals across the world who largely opposed international travel bans, a scientifically verifiable means of virus transmission and spread. The European Union lagged well behind the United States and Canada in placing curbs on travel across borders.
Perhaps most egregiously, she fails to even so much as assign any culpability for America’s coronavirus epidemic on the Chinese Communist Party, which failed to so much as even admit the scale of the problem as the disease first took the form of a true public health pandemic in China. The CCP’s negligent cover-up of the coronavirus epidemic in undoubtedly the most ‘unscientific’ governmental approach to the virus, with grave consequences. And China’s authoritarian leaders are by no means conservative Christians.
Stewart’s reaching move to blame Evangelicals for the coronavirus outbreak in America is merely a reactionary take from a cultural liberal seeking to impute political commentary in the midst of a pandemic.
