Well, the proverbial saying of “The fox in the henhouse” definitely can be said about the rapidly changing Fox News. What was started as the conservative alternative to CNN, is quickly morphing into their former nemesis?
Rupert Murdoch, who along with Roger Ailes, guided Fox News to capture a large market share of the cable news market, was mentoring his son to follow in his footsteps, but his son has decided to go a different direction.
Rupert’s son, James Murdoch, is not an apple from the same tree and is known to be a progressive whose politics fall more in line with the other liberal news networks than his fathers’.
James resigned in July from the board of directors of News Corp. publicly separating from his fathers’ vision for the network’s future.
James said it was over “differences in editorial content.”
As with Jezebel in the Bible, Murdoch’s influential outspoken wife Kathryn has the ear of the FOX News’s heir, her husband.
Kathryn Murdoch posted several anti-Trump tweets over the years. She even urged FOX News to “put country above their profits” and start pushing anti-Trump stories.
Right after the election Kathryn called President Trump a dictator.
And then last Saturday, she tweeted, “We did it!” after FOX News declared Joe Biden winner.
Of course, she’s talking about Democrats, Trump haters, and the hundreds of thousands of Biden votes they had to manufacture in only swing states this year.

James Murdoch’s wife Kathryn tweeted ‘we did it!!!!’ and shared anti-Trump posts after Joe Biden’s historic win Saturday.
On Election Day she had written: ‘What will you tell your children or your future self about the part you played in history?’
By Saturday she had also shared posts that referenced ‘Trump’s authoritarian antics’ and ‘surviving the gravest threat to our system of government since the Civil War.’
Kathryn, 47, had also voiced her agreement that her family, which owns Fox News, must ‘put their country above their profits’ and disavow President Donald Trump‘s claims of widespread voter fraud.
Fox News’ rating have plummeted since they were the first to call Arizona for Joe Biden, during their election night coverage.
Many of their viewers have moved over to Newsmax ,or OAN looking to get a more balanced view of the news, with a conservative slant to it.
