1. Instead of working to change the direction, he simply quits.

3. Maybe he already tried to change the direction and was

rejected.

But honestly, I don't really care all that much.

6. That is also possible. He clearly didn't care enough to stick around and fight for changes.

4. Interesting.

Rupert Murdoch’s son James and his wife Kathryn recently dropped more than $2 million to help elect Biden and Democrats, I wonder if one has to do with the other.....

5. No kidding? They were Biden supporters?

No wonder! They probably couldn't bear the stench any longer.

7. Yes. James hates trump openly.

His brother Lachlan only tolerates him - wonder what will happen to Fux News and their fluffing of trump when daddy Rupert who is almost 90, passes?

10. exactly. My guess is it just got too toxic & can't be saved so he bailed to help other causes.

12. Interesting

I think James is to the left of his father; and maybe this is finally boiling over.

13. Things aren't as simple as they used to be.

James Murdoch

James Rupert Jacob Murdoch (born 13 December 1972) is a British-American businessman, the younger son of media mogul Rupert Murdoch, and was the chief executive officer (CEO) of 21st Century Fox from 2015 to 2019.

He was the chairman and CEO for Europe and Asia of News Corporation until 2013 when it was split into News Corp and 21st Century Fox. He sits on the News Corp board of directors and is a member of the office of the chairman.

If you go looking for him in the Fox Corporation proxy statement, you won't find him.

14. James is the Murdoch married to an ex-Clinton staffer.

He wanted control of Fox News but Rupert refused because James doesn't share his politics. James is more centrist, I guess.
