    He wouldn't leave a money source unless the alt is worse.

    Tucker leaves, now Murdock? Seems like someone sees the writing on the wall and doesn't want to be anywhere near FOX when the election cycle picks up and they start the crazy train again.

    He sees the mess he made, sees that it won't work next year and worse that people won't tolerate it anymore. He ain't stupid and if Trump never happened he'd still be at FOX guaranteed.

    MSNBC and morning Joe are the most respected and truthful news source in the country. They will never lie to us or have us believing something without concrete evidence. God bless these defenders of democracy.

    Murdoch is the new Medici, the damage is done, the money is "theirs. Murdoch's have their mind on their money and their money on their mind, and unless 1st Amendment overreach is patriotically scrutinized there's not much that'll change.

    Good riddance to “HITLER” number two! This man help damage this country by promoting hate and misinforming the American people, with his rethoric news panel! And I don’t think it’s going to get any better! The damage is done!

    For justice to be truly served, Murdoch would be charged & convicted of conspiracy to overthrow the US Constitution, & wire fraud. Instead of a gold watch(& billions) he should be getting a cell at Rikers Island or an Australian penal colony and his children should not be able to benefit from the father's life of media crimes & undermining of the worlds democracies. He's a pathetic, narcissistic, sick little man.

    Murdoch has done more to destroy democracy in three nations than any other single person. He is an awful human who personifies why concentrated wealth is a problem. Too much power in one man's hands and was never held accountable to laws and norms everyone else is subject to. Good riddens evil. I pray karma catches up to him.

    That heading is misleading. Rupert isn't retiring. Read his statement. He's still actively involved in the organisation and decisions. He's not going quietly into retirement, if at all.

    Lachlan is no better than Rupert, News Corp is still going to do massive damage to democracies around the world with their right-wing propaganda.

    Rupert Murdoch's mum was very loved in Australia for her charitable organizations and warm nature. She had a rose named after her as she was known as an avid gardener. DAME Elizabeth Murdoch, His mother would be ashamed for the damage that her son has caused and what filth he has unleashed on the world stage.
    I hope retirement is not a means of escaping accountability.

    He made billions by selling white supremacy, racism, sexism, bigotry, homophobia, lies. He will end up in the ash heap of history. More billion dollar lawsuits settlements are coming..

    How disappointing tar and feathering cannot be applied to this toxic right wing trash titan. The damage he has done in America is without measure; he was thrown out of the UK as Persona non Grata and hopefully he will not return to Australia. We dont want him back!!! Trump Murdoch and Marjorie t Greene: thats a trinity of poison.

    Oh come on. That pos is giving up on ruining America? Maybe he will move back to Australia. No, they won't take him back.

    I'm astounded that anyone would be gullible enough to believe that Rupert Murdoch would step down from Newscorp., his "precious".
    It's obvious none outside of Australia know much about Rupert Murdoch.
    Rupert has "stepped down" many times now.

    I was suggested this website by my cousin. I’m not sure whether this post is written by him as nobody else know such detailed about my difficulty. You are amazing! Thanks!
