According to Michael Wolff’s new book, Fox News CEO Rupert Murdoch personally gave final approval to Fox News’s decision to call Arizona or Biden.
Rupert Murdoch personally gave final approval to Fox News’s decision to call Arizona for Joe Biden during the 2020 presidential election, according to Michael Wolff’s new book on Donald Trump.
The episode features in “Landslide: The Final Days of the Trump Presidency,” an early copy of which was obtained by Insider.
Wolff wrote that Murdoch’s son Lachlan, the CEO of Fox Corporation, got a call from the network’s election-data operation shortly after 11 p.m. ET on election night saying it was ready to declare Arizona for Biden.
The book noted that the Murdochs – who spearhead a vast right-wing media empire – had “every reason” to delay calling Arizona at the time, given Fox’s steadfast allegiance to Trump and the fact that no other network had made the call yet.
“Lachlan got his father on the phone to ask if he wanted to make the early call. His father, with signature grunt, assented, adding, ‘F— him,'” Wolff wrote.
Now, I have no interest in trusting Michael Wolf alone.
So, here is all the other evidence we have.
We reported on November 4th that the White House was furious at Fox News over the premature call.
So, this claim by Wolff is substantiated.
The next part we have is that Murdoch’s son donated $100 million to stop Trump.
So, this confirms the anti-Trump bias among the heads of Fox.
So, this claim made by Wolff is substantiated by two prior reports we have done.
It seems that Fox News Arizona call was likely more nefarious than previously thought.
Remember, Fox News claimed that the Democrats would expand their House majority.
They were dead wrong.
What the hell was going on at Fox?
