Decepticon Paul Ryan Joins Fox News Board of Directors…

A week after saying any Democrat who made the 2020 presidential race about “Trump’s personality” will beat him, Fox News owner Rupert Murdoch hires Paul Ryan to serve as a board member for the news organization.  This announcement follows on the heels of Fox News hiring the former head of the DNC, Donna “Debate-Gate” Brazile, as a contributor.

Yes, it is clear to see the direction and intent of Rupert and Lachlan Murdoch.

It must also be remembered that in 2013 Fox News worked behind the scenes to facilitate the Senate’s comprehensive immigration reform platform.  Additionally, a year later, Murdoch himself advocated for Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio as the preferred candidates in 2016, using Megyn Kelly to achieve their objective.  Yes, it is all one unfortunate, political and ideological continuum.

(NBC News) Fox Corporation debuted as a public company on Tuesday with a new board member — former House Speaker Paul Ryan.

The company, which includes Fox News and the Fox broadcasting network, had been dubbed by some in the media industry as “New Fox.” On Tuesday it announced the completion of its separation from 21st Century Fox, which houses the company’s TV and movie assets that are being acquired by Walt Disney Co. The new entity will trade on the Nasdaq exchange. (read more)

    Paul Ryan won a statewide election (a Senator) and then LOST when he ran nationally with Romney– that’s his record. PDJT won the nation. PR has no clue on personality. PDJT will win in a landslide BECAUSE of his personality and backbone, both of which PR lacks. In regards to Fox News, their “toast” or if I were Italian, “dead to me” and NEVER to be turned to again. oh an on a happier note Happy St Joseph’s day y’all!

        @Zippy: Yes, it could take ten Presidential terms to clean out the rot, but I haven’t yet seen a single other man or woman, as candidate running for the Presidency, ever, who was honest enough, and bold enough, to identify the Swamp as the real problem in D.C. Only Donald Trump was willing to shine the spotlight on the rats in both Parties and start tearing out the rotting detritus of tangled undergrowth by the roots. It’s a big job, but he’s a big man. And he’s got us to help him in any way he deems requisite, to preserve the aspirations as well as the functions of good governance according to the U.S. Constitution.

        The President’s spotlight has exposed conditions that are far more deleterious to our Republic than any of us even imagined. We knew it was bad, but we assigned blame to one Party, rather than to a majority in ALL Parties.

        President Trump will strive to accomplish this mission single-handedly, if necessary, because I am certain that he has always prepared himself to go into battle on his own, if his supporters were to grow faint of heart. This is a David and Goliath sequel. King Saul’s entire army stood by watching as the lone figure of the youngster, David, approached the gigantic Goliath, and knocked him out with a single stone from his slingshot – before he cut off the Giant’s Head. President Trump is working, long hours with no pay, to destroy the Giant. What are we, his army, doing to help him?

    Will Megyn now return next like the picture?

    Paul Ryan is now safe from any public or on air criticism from any Fox employee. The fix is in now. The Murdochs were never Trump’s friend but they are now fully out of the shadows and have publicly and unabashedly joined the TDS anti Trump bandwagon. The wagon seems to be roaring at full throttle. Why now and so obviously? Did Trump’s McCain criticisms finally trigger an all out meltdown after all of his trade tariffs, his anti globalist actions and other policies?

    Maybe the Murdochs are embarrassed by the overt coziness between Trump and some of their on air hosts this sent them over the top. Or did the Dems shaming campaign dupe the Murdochs into turning on their own viewers and employees?

    How did any of the well laid plans of Murdoch Inc work out in the last election? The average age of a Fox viewer is about 70 and Trump needs more than that geriatric demographic to win. Which is why he uses social media so effectively, better than any Democrat with the exception of AOC. I don’t see this as harming Trump that much. On the other hand, Fox is committing suicide before our eyes by trying to appeal to the left. It’s not going to work out well for them.

        Interesting they would hire Brazile and Ryan within
        days of each other. Although they are (supposedly)
        from different parties, what they do in the background
        is eerily similar.

        Both are good at trying to pre-arrange outcomes. Brazile
        did it with stacking the deck in 2016 with questions for
        the debates. Ryan did it in October of 2012 by taking a
        fall in the debate against Biden. A situation where anyone
        normal could have called Old Joe out on his mugging,
        face making. And easily won.

        The next question. Have the two crossed paths way
        back when?

      What Fox news is doing is total suicide.

      Every liberal has been conditioned by all the other MSM outlets, all the late night political “comedy” hosts, their schools & the rest of their echo chamber that Fox News is the devil. This has been going on for 10 or 20 years. The liberals will not be able to shift their programming (actually brainwashing) and give a liberal Fox News a chance.

      It is fundamental to their entire world view: Fox News is bad!, Just like Orange Man is bad!
      There is no thought involved, it is an automatic, Pavlovian response.

      Meanwhile their former loyal supporter will be boycotting them in short order.

Bring in Donna and Ryan let the judge go and neuter Hannity and Tucker and isolate Loria. Play ball or your out. Fox is selling their soul to survive. The loyal viewers are starting to leave and now Fox is now bleeding from head to toe. The left has found the formular to take Fox out. Lose your sponsors and lose you viewers and its just a matter of time before Fox is absorbed by CNN and MSNBC. As far as Ryan he is another McCain the pure definition of RINO and an enemy of Trump and us.

    Ryan is employed in a board position, not management.
    To me this means the Murdochs are planning something on the legislative front. Possibly to curb the fast growing alternative on-line media via congress.
    Ryan would be perfect to advise and lobby for the Murdochs for this purpose and a board position means he need only turn up once a month for board meetings to pocket his salary and perks.
    Win win for both parties.
    Objectively looking at this from a business point of view, this is a good move for the Murdochs (but probably not good for us plebs).
