Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Thursday, March 26, 2020

The Murdoch family, which owns Fox News, took precautions against the new coronavirus as the network's hosts downplayed the risk posed by the pandemic on TV. The family abruptly canceled Fox News Chairman Rupert Murdoch's 89th birthday party at his California estate on March 8 "out of concern for the patriarch's health," according to The New York Times' Ben Smith. Smith previously reported that Lachlan Murdoch, who runs the news network, "knew the virus was coming" in January, because he was "getting regular updates from the family's political allies and journalists in his father's native Australia."

Of course he did! There is no bottom to the depravity on the Reich, no matter if they're in the US, Europe or Australia. Reichwingers anywhere in the world, especially the Murdoch/Bannon/Drumpf/Putin brand of it are absolute scum!

The excuse will go something like:

They're just filling their fiduciary duty to maximize shareholder value.If they could of done it different they would have but Obama's rules forced them to do it this way and if they only had the choice to do otherwise back when they really wanted to things would be different now.Thankfully now that President Trump is aware he will do his best to stop the unjustified attacks on the Murdoch's and has changed things to the strongly beautiful system now in place.Were all on the same team now fight the invisible scourge!

They had to give themselves time to unload stocks before the rest of the country did.

Of course he did. He has connections in Oz. the Aussies were waaaaaaaaay ahead of us on this. I have 3 wealthy friends in Sydney and they put that majority of their assets in gold weeks ago.

Australia has a very different trade agreement with China and good diplomatic relations. They knew this was coming and heeded the warnings a couple of months ago.

Fact is here in the US the clowns were too busy being focused on imposing tariffs... it was making them all hot and bothered to see the orange talk tough about stuff. Never mind that he hosted countless business events in his properties held by business leaders bent on cutting costs and moving operations overseas... to China for instance.

Fekkin hypocrites...

Well now the orange pig is a pinko... and so are you.
