  • Rupert Murdoch rails against 'awful woke orthodoxy' while accepting award

    Media mogul Rupert Murdoch blasted so-called cancel culture and a "woke orthodoxy" that he described as "awful" and suggested was a threat to the free exchange of ideas in the U.S. and around the world. "For those of us in the media, there's a real challenge to confront: a wave of censorship that seeks to silence conversation, to stifle debate, to ultimately stop individuals and societies from realizing their potential," Murdoch, the executive chairman of News Corp., said in recorded remarks while receiving an award from the Australia Day Foundation, according to The New York Times. "This rigidly enforced conformity,...

    Edra Denise Blixseth, age 55, is tiny, barely 5 feet 3, but she is at the center of a huge financial mess. According to personal bankruptcy papers her lawyer filed in March, she owes $500 million to $1 billion and has assets of barely half that, almost none of them liquid. Earlier this month, the court approved the sale of one of her most prized possessions - the private ski resort in Big Sky, Mont., known as the Yellowstone Club - to the private-equity firm of one of its members for $115 million. Just a year ago, that same buyer,...

    James Murdoch resigned in July from the board of directors of News Corp. in a very public sign of dissent that typically plays out behind closed doors. James Murdoch said it was over “differences in editorial content.” Murdoch’s wife Kathryn is a big lib. Kathryn Murdoch posted several hateful anti-Trump tweets over the years. She even urged FOX News to “put country above their profits” and start pushing anti-Trump stories. Earlier this week Kathryn called President Trump a dictator. And then on Saturday she tweeted, “We did it!” after FOX News declared Joe Biden winner.

    The Australian federal police have raided the Canberra home of intelligence officer Cameron Gill... Cameron Gill was also listed as an adviser to then defence materiel minister, Mal Brough, in defence documents recording a meeting with former US ambassador John Berry in 2015. It is unclear whether Wednesday’s raid is connected to the Smethurst story, which reported that the heads of the defence and home affairs ministries had discussed draconian new powers to allow the Australian Signals Directorate to spy on Australian citizens for the first time.

    In their biggest threat yet to conservative media, Democrats on the Federal Election Commission are laying the groundwork to bar companies with even the tiniest foreign ownership from American politics, a move that could ban Fox, the Wall Street Journal and even the New York Times from covering political races or giving endorsements. In a last-minute submission Wednesday, a top Democrat on the evenly split FEC proposed that the Thursday meeting of the commission begin the process to prohibit companies with foreign ownership as small as 5 percent "from funding expenditures, independent expenditures, or electioneering communications." Democratic Commissioner Ellen Weintraub...

    Media mogul Rupert Murdoch argued Wednesday that Republicans would be "mad" not to rally around Donald Trump should the businessman become the GOP presidential nominee. Murdoch, who suggested earlier this week that Republicans should "close ranks to fight real enemy," shared a tweet Wednesday saying Trump is "reaching out to make peace" with members of the party. "If he becomes inevitable party would be mad not to unify," Murdoch wrote.

    Just who is Donald J. Trump's Prince, and why has he come now to buy into the Plaza Hotel? Prince Walid bin Talal is the Saudi ruling family's most prominent -- and most adventurous -- international investor, with large stakes in Citicorp, Four Seasons Hotels, Fairmont Hotels, Euro Disney and Saks Fifth Avenue, which is controlled by Investcorp of Bahrain.

    Gulf Times ^ | January 26 2016 11:47 PM
    Republican front-runner Donald Trump has broken just about every rule of conventional US presidential campaigning. Short on a long-term political vision to help shape the destiny of the nation, he has gleefully insulted Muslims, Mexicans, women and virtually all of his opponents. A Trump-in-the-White-House scenario poses high stakes for the Gulf region. Gulf Arabs could pull billion in investment money from the US if Trump, who triggered a global outrage when he advocated a temporary ban on all Muslims entering the US, wins the presidency later this year, prominent UAE businessman Khalaf al-Habtoor said. Saudi billionaire Prince Alwaleed bin Talal,...

    Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) was again confronted on his 2013 immigration position Friday, being grilled for nearly 10 minutes by Fox News Channel host Greta Van Susteren. In his lengthy “On the Record” interview, Cruz referenced an exchange on immigration he had with Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) at Tuesday night’s GOP debate. In that exchange, Rubio confronted Cruz on stage and noted the Texas senator previously seemed to support for legalization of those in the U.S. illegally. Van Susteren followed up on this in her interview Friday. “You supported not citizenship, but giving essentially —,” she said. Cruz interjected, anticipating...

And he drew a connection between U.S. foreign policy and domestic culture, arguing that “in recent years, there has been far too much institutionalization of grievance and victimhood."

    The above graphic begs the question: Where is News Corp (Fox and the WSJ) they getting their data from? The info contained herein will establish that Trump's support is vast and solid, and that all available polls and empirical data from virtually any source (other than the incestuous NY/DC establishment green zone) shows Trump far outperforming his competitors both nationally and on a state-by-state basis. All indications are that Trump is set to win all of the early states, super Tuesday, the "big" delegate states and by extension the nomination. Beyond simple "who wins" polling, there are further essential...

    Media mogul and creator of the Fox Broadcasting Company, Barry Diller made it clear today he has no intention of seeing Donald Trump become the next President of the United States. The fellow billionaire went so far as to suggest to CNBC that should Donald Trump win he would, “move out of the country, or join the resistance.” Interestingly, Diller’s comments come just forty-eight hours after a D.C. Whispers report included this information regarding an effort by powerful Mainstream political and media figures to successfully terminate the Trump campaign: “…It was also stated that news media executives at each the...

    Fox News is facing a backlash from conservatives after critics felt the network was biased and unfair in the manner it approached the forum for the Republican presidential candidates' debate Thursday, and namely, Donald Trump. According to Media Equalizer, tens of thousands of observers swamped social media with criticism of Fox and the moderators, with some comments attracting more than 2,000 "likes." "This was shameful. You and Fox News did not treat the candidates fairly. You tried to make Donald J. Trump look foolish. All you did was make Fox News look foolish." "Donald J. Trump still has my vote,"...

    'A Saudi Arabian billionaire is planning on giving his entire $32billion (£20bn) fortune to charity. Prince Alwaleed bin Talal, one of the richest men in the world, said he wants to donate to groups that promote health and help with disaster relief. The 60-year-old will also support women's charities and those that look towards eradicating disease. He did not say whether the generous move would have any impact on his holdings. Mr bin Talal is the grandson of Saudi Arabia's founder Ibn Saud. He is said to have started his business empire with a $30,000 (£19,000) gift from his father...

    Forbes ^ | 02/04/15 | Chris Wright
    Few individual investors have quite as much capital to deploy as Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal of Saudi Arabia. Through his Kingdom Holding , he holds significant stakes in companies including Citigroup C -0.41%, Twitter TWTR +1.28% – and, until recently, News Corporation. The Prince hasn’t sold out completely – he still owns about 1% of the company, as well as a separate 6.6% shareholding in 21st Century Fox Inc which in itself is worth about $1.7 billion – but he previously also held 6.6% of News Corp NWSA 0%, or a total of 13.184 million class B shares. He’s shed...
