Ex-Murdoch Executive Says He Quit Because of Fox News ‘Relationship with Facts’

Outside of Trump, FOXNews could be the greatest threat to America. They are the voice of the rightwing. Without FOX there would be no Trump presidency:

Former Newscorp senior vice president Joseph Azam says he resigned from the company in 2017 because of a “significant change in tone,” and a “significant shift in the relationship with facts, particularly on the Fox side.”

On Sunday morning’s edition of CNN’s Reliable Sources, host Brian Stelter asked Azam “What prompted you to resign in late 2017?”

Azam noted that he hadn’t worked for Fox News directly, and so “I hadn’t been exposed, for a long time to a lot of what was going on on the opinion side, but beyond that I noticed a significant change in tone.”

“I’m a big believer in the marketplace of ideas, and I was fine working with and for people who had very different values and opinions than I did,” he continued, “but I noticed a significant shift in the ferociousness, and frankly, in the relationship with facts, particularly on the Fox side.”
