Rupert Murdoch's son James quits News Corp

Aug 01, 2020 10:09 IST

James Murdoch, the younger son of media mogul Rupert Murdoch, has resigned from the board of News Corp, the media company said on Friday, citing “disagreements” over editorial content. It was not immediately clear what editorial content might have fueled James Murdoch’s decision to step down. In a letter of resignation filed on Friday afternoon, Murdoch wrote: “My resignation is due to disagreements over certain editorial content published by the company’s news outlets and certain other strategic decisions.” 47 year old James Murdoch has previously criticised News Corp outlets, which include the Wall Street Journal, for climate change coverage. Whilst Murdoch Senior has pledged support for Donald Trump, James Murdoch has reportedly contributed hundreds of thousands of dollars to the campaign of Trump's Democratic rival, Joe Biden.
