With every recent, except Shorten (and he lost), PM-aspirant having gone crawling to #RupertMurdoch to kiss his rings and seek his favour, it seems likely that much energy that is rightfully spent improving #Australia will instead continue to be spent trying to appease the misanthrope Rupert.

Lachlan, who became CEO of Fox in 2018, was already seen as the winner of the battle of succession. However, it remains unclear if he will have the support of his siblings to stay at the top once his father passes. https://www.japantimes.co.jp/business/2023/09/22/companies/rupert-murdoch-steps-down/?utm_content=bufferad0b2&utm_medium=social&utm_source=mastodon&utm_campaign=bffmstdn #business #companies #television #rupertmurdoch #lachlanmurdoch #newspapers

Your influence extended far beyond the rest
You wielded power enough to shape a world,
Instigating wars that would forever unfurl
The political career of Trump and the Brexit too
Your work helped shape what we all knew
Your career was unique, and undeniably destructive
So to mark your retirement, we raise a salute in respectful

OP by @jeffjarvis 👍️
I wish I could celebrate news of the departure of the single most malign influence in English-speaking democracy, Rupert Murdoch, but I fear Fox will only be worse under son Lachlan & that this is a means to solidify his power before Dad's death.
We have Murdoch to curse for giving us Trump, Brexit, & a right-wing news monopoly in much of Australia.

Rupert Murdoch to finally resign at 1,006 years of age
This is a devastating blow to journalism
I must bring you the sad news the media’s most reliable and fearless truth teller, Rupert Murdoch, is resigning from Fox and News Corp. This announcement has caused concern about how we will maintain media impartiality and exceptional journalistic standards when he's gone.
@jeffjarvis The family business model of turning deadly lies and deception into power and profit started with #RupertMurdoch ‘s father over a century ago! 👉 https://insidestory.org.au/the-myth-of-keith-murdochs-gallipoli-letter/
Good morning. It's 9AM, Friday, 22nd September. The headlines: Zelensky visited #Biden and appealed to the US Congress for more aid. Rupert #Murdoch has stepped down from Fox & News Corp, with his eldest son set to lead. The US auto worker strike is nearing its first week. Brazil is debating the decriminalisation of abortion. JetZero claims their design can halve carbon emissions. #RupertMurdoch #BBC #News
News at 6AM: #Ukraine's President Zelensky visited #Biden in Washington, appealing for more aid. In response, Biden announced an aid package for Ukraine. The US auto worker strike is nearing its first week with a possible expansion looming. Rupert #Murdoch has stepped down from Fox and News Corp, with his eldest son set to take over. #India's parliament is moving towards gender equality by allocating a third of seats to women. #UK ends interest rate freeze after 14 increases. #RupertMurdoch
Can we stop talking about #RupertMurdoch leaving Fox? He's doing piss all of the sort, just abdicating responsibility for it. Anyone who thinks he won't really be calling the shots until he dies is a fool.
Today's news that #RupertMurdoch is stepping down as the #CEO of #Fox is mildly ironic to me because last night I happened to watch the episode of the (really bad and trashy) #tv show, #TheMentalist, in which a #media #mogul stepped down (after being forced out by his son).
Sadly, perhaps, in real life no mogul's son was murdered by the father...
Now that #RupertMurdoch is leaving #NewsCorp & #Fox, do I need to start watching #Succession to see what happens next?
Him leaving reminds me of the successful campaign with #ColorOfChange & #AngeloCarusone to get advertisers to leave the #GlennBeck show.
I asked #Rupert how long he was going to support the money losing show.
Beck was fired after this for lack of revenue after thia story.

Rupert Murdoch stepping down as chairman of Fox and News Corp | Al Jazeera Newsfeed
In shock news, Horrible Old Shit steps aside in favour of Horrible Middle Aged Shit.
"...#RupertMurdoch has stepped down as the chairman of #FoxCorp... and #NewsCorp... ending a more than seven-decade career during which he created a media empire spanning from #Australia to the #UnitedStates.
"His son, #LachlanMurdoch, will become the sole chairman of News Corp and continue as the chair and CEO of Fox, the companies said on Thursday..."
I would not disagree. However the first quarter century of his career seemed - and perhaps was - very different. Some time in the 1970s/1980s he changed. Some of his statements - including his valedictory today - suggest that he may believe that he is still that earlier #RupertMurdoch .

Take the *#WSJ*: since Khan took office, they have published *67 vicious editorials* attacking her. Khan is living rent-free in #RupertMurdoch's head. Not only that, she's got the presidential suite! You love to see it.
These attacks are worth reading, if only to see how flimsy and frivolous they are. One major subgenre is that Khan shouldn't be bringing any action against Amazon, because her groundbreaking scholarship about the company means she has a conflict of interest.
"The creatures outside looked from pig to man, and from man to pig, and from pig to man again; but already it was impossible to say which was which.”
Labour, including their prospective governor of North Britain, Anas Sarwar, reassuring Rupert Murdoch of a seamless transfer of puppet politicians from blue to red under his watchful eye.
Another important risk from "bargaining codes" and link taxes is that they tend to favor the largest and/or most sensationalist news companies, who have the leverage to bargain for the highest sums. In Australia, #RupertMurdoch's #NewsCorp bargained for a sizable payment from the tech sector - but then it laid off its news workers. Merely transferring money to media giants doesn't mean an increase in investment in news.

Murdoch is said to be concerned over Carlson’s coverage of the #Jan6, 2021 insurrection at the Capitol, where the host has promoted the conspiracy theory that it was provoked by government agents."

Murdoch was so concerned that .... he allowed Carlson to broadcast program after program making this claim.
Grandson of man who shot unarmed Black teenager #RalphYarl says his brain was rotted by an endless diet of #FoxNews #racism and #fearmongering. #RupertMurdoch should be on trial at the Hague for crimes against humanity in a Hannibal Lecter mask. https://www.vice.com/en/article/5d9b45/ralph-yarl-shot-andrew-lester-foxnews
Quite right. The best practicable result was for a bruised #RupertMurdoch to retreat some way incurring substantial losses in the process much as he was forced to in the #UK in July 2011. If that experience is anything to go by we can expect further repercussions within the #Murdoch empire - most likely affecting the role of the son involved.
Those who hoped this case would lead to a true reckoning, where Fox would admit its lies to its own viewers, were always going to be disappointed.

The $787.5 million settlement by #FoxNews in the #DominionVotingSystems lawsuit, and the pending $2.7 BILLION lawsuit filed by #Smartmatic , are not just comeuppance for #RupertMurdoch and his spawn. It is long overdue karma for deadly lies spread by Murdoch’s FATHER during World War I. 👉 https://insidestory.org.au/the-myth-of-keith-murdochs-gallipoli-letter/
The network reached a last-minute settlement with Dominion Voting Systems to avoid more embarrassment over allegations it pushed lies about the 2020 election.
