Fox lemmings jumping ship...
James Murdoch resigns from News Corp's board over editorial content 'disagreements'

This is big. In reality - I’m sure it has nothing to do with content. If he was concerned about content, there are hundreds of crazy offensive things that Fox has done over past 30 years.
How long is that ogre Rupert going to live? I think it’s true - only the good die young.

It really is huge, r1. There has to be a story behind it. Maybe Lachlan won the favorite kid contest? I wish it were due to editorial disagreements, but probably due to Fox’s future being dicey, and James decided to get out before everything implodes. TBH, Fox’s business model isn’t looking too rosy, so it could be that.

Yeah, that's weird. If there is something that doesn't sit well with him, he could just open his mouth, especially if it's just about content. He wouldn't be the first family/board member to take dirty laundry to the media. There must be more to it.
Which one had resigned years ago before coming back? James or Lachlan?

Frankly I think James was supposed to be the dumb one. But he's been gradually distancing himself from NewsCorp for years, whereas Lachlan has gone all-in, so he's clearly not that dumb after all. At this point maybe he can see the writing on the wall.

Lachlan was the one who worked out a lot and gave off gay vibes until he got married. He used to be hot but he's aged out of it.

Lachlan has gone full white nationalist and James has pulled ‘chute as they say.
James is Kendall and Lachlan is Connor, only James and Lachlan have the same mom.
Either way, I hope every single member in that family burns alive somehow. Acid attack, car accident, I don’t care, that DNA needs to be scourged from the Earth. Including and especially the by association Deng DNA.

Lachlan was never hot. At the most, you could say he was well-styled. Always had that inbred Ozzie look about him.

James has always been hot, to those of us who like slender dorks. I'd still hit it (20+ years and counting). He's also long known his family's business is fucking evil. He had a decent run at "trying to change things from the inside" before retreating.

The only cute thing in the linked pic r12 is the dead mink the whore is wearing.

But the mink wore it better.

My money is on Elisabeth, the second of his four daughters, to get the CEO gig once he dies. If he ever dies.

R16 Every woman aspired to wear mink the 50s and 60s. I bet your mother did!

Lachlan has been running Fox News for years now. He pretended to be more liberal than his father but once he took over he actually made Fox worse. He’s responsible for Tucker Carlson & Laura Ingraham.

The SJWs love to make out this family are evil demons but the family is no different from any other family.
Their company produces stuff which buyers will buy. And lots of people do buy it. It's called Free Enterprise.

Lachlan and Rupert should be tried as war criminals.
Their Fox news empire has destroyed both the news industry and America, fomenting hate and discord.
(Though the same was said of Hearst back in the day.)
Though by not investing in streaming apps the way its competitors did (Disney/ABC, Comcast/NBC, ViacomCBS, WarnerHBO), Fox is sort of fucked going forwards.

That last sentence of yours should make you a very happy man, R24.

I agree--he's hot. And even if he's out of power, he still must be rich as all get-out.

Fox depends on old people who are bored and lonely at home - who wouldn’t know how to use an app-based tv anyway. They are just background blather for lonely old people.

In Bombshell, John Lithgow as Roger Ailes sees Lachlan on a tv screen and says “you can’t tell me that mouth hasn’t sucked a cock!”

The formerly-cute Lachlan has one of those bottom lips which looks though they used to dribble a lot— just like this interesting former UK pollie—Chuka Umanna.

Yeah yeah, but he's still a hypocritical vermin that needs to be fumigated. I just hope to God this family goes through a lot of hell for all the menace they've caused.

Even Trump has started to criticize Fox News. But - this is his plan. If he loses, even after a fight - he's going to own his own tv channel. And continue his nonsense and hate there. Probably steal the nutjobs at Fox. And then destroy Fox News. I think that's what all this nonsense he is spewing right now is about. He laying a platform of hate for his base to have their own new channel.

^ There could be a cure for it. If Individual 1 gets indicted after his presidency is over, Biden could cut him a deal: You won't get a conviction, and in return you'll hide under a rock for the rest of your life. No Twitter, no interviews anymore. I could live with that deal.
