Former President Donald Trump has discussed possibly running again for office in 2024.
However, News Corp Executive Chairman Rupert Murdoch stated during the annual meeting of News Corp stockholders that Trump prevents conservatives from moving the nation’s political discussion forward.
Murdoch adds the former president keeps the country focusing “on the past.” “The current American political debate is profound, whether about education or welfare or economic opportunity,” Murdoch said.
“It is crucial that conservatives play an active, forceful role in that debate, but that will not happen if President Trump stays focused on the past. The past is the past, and the country is now in a contest to define the future.”
Trump and Fox News have been at odds ever since the network decided to call Arizona for President Joe Biden in the last election. Murdoch’s comments will likely reach the former president, and it wouldn’t surprise anyone if he decided to respond.
Murdoch wasn’t only calling out Trump; the Fox News CEO accused Facebook and Google of trying to “silence conservative voices.”
“Both of these issues highlight the fundamental need for algorithmic transparency,” Murdoch said. “The idea falsely promoted by the platforms that algorithms are somehow objective and solely scientific is complete nonsense.”
“Algorithms are subjective, and they can be manipulated by people to kill competition and damage other people, publishers, and businesses. What we have seen in the past few weeks about the practices at Facebook and Google surely reinforces the need for significant reform.”
Tucker Carlson Takes Aim at Howard Stern Over Covid Commentaries
“Maybe it was coronavirus that broke him, maybe it was hormonal changes from middle age, he is now a coward.”
Tucker Carlson took aim at a mega media star on Thursday night. The highly opinionated FOX News host made it clear, he views SiriusXM radio host Howard Stern as a coward.
During Carlson’s show, he focused on comments Stern made on the air on September 7th of 2021 and January 3rd and 19th of 2022 and followed up by labeling the king of all media as a coward. That was further supported on social media where Carlson tweeted out the clip of the segment where he blasted Stern.
“Howard Stern, by any measure, is one of the great radio hosts of all time,” Carlson said as he began his commentary. “He has made a huge amount of money for doing what he does but there is a reason for it. He was incredibly brave, vulgar yes, but truly talented, above all courageous.”
That was followed by Carlson mentioning a number of Stern’s accomplishments and crediting him for his prior fights against free speech and the government.
But then, Carlson described Stern as he sees him now.
“Maybe it was coronavirus that broke him, maybe it was hormonal changes from middle age, he is now a coward. His broadcast is now about cowardice. Amplifying his fears about corona over the air, and attacking, more precisely, attacking anybody else who has decided to live life as a free person.”
Carlson then aired the September clip from Stern’s show where he talked about wanting it mandated that everyone had to be vaccinated. That was then followed by a clip from Stern’s show in early January where he criticized Oprah Winfrey for holding large gatherings at her home.
From there, Tucker mocked Stern and moved into his next soundbyte from Stern’s January 19th program where he said that those who weren’t vaccinated wouldn’t be able to seek treatment at a hospital if he was in power and had his way.
The segment ended with Carlson stating ‘there is something sad about this’ before welcoming Jimmy Dore to the show, who proceeded to ridicule Stern and explain how the satellite radio host has lost his way and turned into a modern day version of Don Imus.
Report: Gayle King to Renew Contract with CBS
King, who recently celebrated her 10th anniversary with CBS, saw her contract coming to an end this year.
“CBS Mornings” co-host Gayle King appears to be staying with the company as CNN’s Brian Stelter reports that she’ll renew her contract.
King, who recently celebrated her 10th anniversary with CBS, saw her contract coming to an end this year. Furthermore, there was speculation whether she’d remain as her deal and that of anchor Norah O’Donnell is due to expire.
Nonetheless, Stelter does caution that CBS hasn’t confirmed King’s renewal, and any new deal most probably never will be. Moreover, the morning show anchor is said to be discreet about contract matters.
“King’s future has been a guessing game both inside and outside CBS for months, so any end to the guessing is a step forward for CBS News boss Neeraj Khemlani,” Stelter wrote.
A few months ago, CBS rebranded its morning show with King at the forefront, so it would be a significant loss to see her go less than a year into the new program.
