FOX News CEO Lachlan Murdoch Urges Colleagues to ‘Closely Listen to the Voices of Peaceful Protest and Fundamentally Understand that Black Lives Matter’

FOX News Announced yesterday that it is officially going far-left.  The new CEO, Lachlan Murdoch, urged the FOX team to ‘closely listen to the voices of peaceful protest’.

Well it’s official, FOX News has decided that crushing the competition is no longer their goal.  Instead, the CEO decided to join its far-left competition and symbolically indicated that FOX will now be far-left as well.  CEO Lachlan Murdoch, the son who recently took over the reigns of the company from his elderly father, is now running the show.  This explains the far-left bias during the daily news shows on the FOX News channel when Trump supporters either tune them out, turn them off or gratefully go to work so they don’t have to watch the daily shows.

Son Lachlan is bound and determined to turn FOX News into CNN.  He evidently has no common sense and is willing to stick it to his customers (viewers) who are not of the same ideology as he is.  Unfortunately, the younger Murdoch is not concerned with keeping FOX a going concern, but rather making sure far-left ideas are pushed to viewers.

Yesterday, FOX bragged about the new CEO’s message to the team at FOX News and reported:

Fox Corporation Executive Chairman and CEO Lachlan Murdoch expressed shock and sadness over the tragic death of George Floyd in a memo to staffers Monday in which he urged colleagues to “grieve with the Floyd family, closely listen to the voices of peaceful protest and fundamentally understand that black lives matter.”

Murdoch wrote, “The events that have unfolded over the past week have left me shocked and saddened. Each of you has been in my thoughts as we watch the tragic death of George Floyd continue to cause immense pain and spark important discussions around the country. It is essential that we grieve with the Floyd family, closely listen to the voices of peaceful protest and fundamentally understand that black lives matter.”

We’ve watched as during the day, the FOX news reporting becomes an anti-American President Trump bashing diatribe.  The shows are so bad you might as well watch CNN.  The reporters do all they can to denigrate and berate the greatest President of our life times, if not ever.

For the young CEO to insult his team and his company’s viewers by pushing racists black lives matter and suggesting the violent rioters instigated and supported by the far-left Democrats are anywhere near ‘peaceful’, is a disgrace.  He clearly lacks the ability and foresight to run his company.

As often happens in business when sons take over companies created by entrepreneurial fathers, the sons run the businesses into the ground.  With a CEO as far-left and nutty as Lachlan Murdoch, FOX will soon be in the grave.

Minneapolis protests get heated, looting reported as George Floyd death sparks new outcry – FOX News

Fox News’ Mike Tobin, reporting live from the scene, was caught in the crossfire and said he felt pepper spray get into his eyes.

“Some of the flashbangs have been deployed, primarily from the police on the rooftop,” Tobin said at one point, standing with a news camera and microphone between the lines of protesters and police officers.

Video of the protest showed a line of police slowly backing away from a Minneapolis intersection as protesters continued to move forward, carrying signs and chanting “I can’t breathe.”

Loud bangs can be heard periodically throughout the live shot. The ground was littered with bottles that Tobin said protesters had hurled at police.

The police on the ground, carrying their bicycles like shields along with Tasers, pepper spray and tear gas, received cover from a garrison of officers on the nearby rooftop of the department’s 3rd Precinct, armed with tear gas launchers.

The protesters want charges filed against the officers involved in Floyd’s death.

Nearby, the scene resembled a riot, with looters striking at a Target store off East Lake Street, which is near the precinct building, according to Fox 9 Minneapolis-St. Paul.

“This is awful out here,” tweeted Karen Scullin, one of the channel’s weekend anchors. “No police. Looting continues.”

She posted video that showed a mob of people, many of them in masks, at the front of the store. Looters made off with items ranging from TVs to clothing and even groceries, the outlet reported.

In the video that prompted the protests, Floyd pleaded for his life and said he couldn’t breathe. Numerous bystanders implored the police to take the pressure off of his neck and check his pulse.

He was unconscious by the end of the clip, which is several minutes long. Medics arrived in an ambulance to load him onto a stretcher, and he appeared limp. He was later pronounced dead.

Lawmakers on both sides of the political spectrum have voiced concerns over the video, with President Trump tweeting Wednesday night that he had requested the FBI to open an investigation in Floyd’s death.

“My heart goes out to George’s family and friends,” Trump wrote. “Justice will be served.”

In the suburban community of Oakdale, photos show that protesters rallied near the home of former Minneapolis police Officer Derek Chauvin – one of four cops the department fired this week after Floyd’s death. Other protesters rallied outside the county prosecutor’s home.

The department has identified the fired officers as Chauvin, Thomas Lane, Tou Thao and J. Alexander Kueng.

Chaos also broke out in the city on Tuesday night, prompting police to respond with rubber bullets, tear gas and stun grenades, according to local reports.

Despite the protests, Minneapolis Mayer Jacob Frey is among the people who have called for charges to be brought in the case.

“If most people, particularly people of color, had done what a police officer did late Monday, they’d already be behind bars,” he tweeted Wednesday. “That’s why today I’m calling on Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman to charge the arresting officer in this case.”
