This is a bombshell announcement.
James Murdoch, the younger son of media mogul Rupert Murdoch, has just RESIGNED from the board of News Corporation citing “disagreements over editorial content”, according to BBC. James Murdoch is a Democrat and HUGE Biden supporter. And his decision to leave Fox News may have a good affect on the company.
Murdoch Son GONE
In a filing to US regulators, the liberal Murdoch son says that he also disagreed with some “strategic decisions” made by Fox News’ parent company owned by his father. And as a result, he decided to hand in his resignation.

A copy of Murdoch’s official resignation letter was released to the public below. You can read it yourself:

James Murdoch, the son of the media mogul Rupert Murdoch, and his wife, Kathryn, each gave $615,000 in June to Mr. Biden’s shared committee with the Democratic Party.”
And before Biden, James even gave money to Pete Buttigieg. He’s definitely a supporter of Democrats:
“During the primary campaign, Mr. Murdoch had donated to Pete Buttigieg…”
