Until the 2020 presidential election, the majority of Conservatives considered Fox News  trustworthy but that drastically changed after the news network declared Joe Biden the winner of Arizona hours before the polls were even closed. Now viewer’s trust in the network may dwindle even more after a 2019 tax report shows that Fox News heir James Murdoch has donated over 100 million dollars to left-wing organizations. According to a recent report by CNBC, James Murdoch and his wife Kathryn’s tax return documents of their nonprofit Quadrivium revealed the couple shacked out over $100 million dollars to Democrats, climate change initiatives, and some other bipartisan projects. James Murdoch also reportedly dished out over 20 million dollars to Biden’s campaign to oppose Donald Trump’s re-election bid.


Who are the Murdoch’s?

James Murdoch’s father is Rupert Murdoch who is worth over 21 billion dollars. Rupert also owns Fox Corp. and News Corp. which controls Fox News. Rupert and his other son Lachlan Murdoch both claim their allegiance to the Republican party whereas James and his sisters align themselves with the Democratic party. At 90 years old Rupert Murdoch’s empire could be passed down in the near future which would mean James and his more liberal sisters would then be in control of Fox News.

Where Did Murdoch’s $100 Million Dollar Donations Go?

James and his wife Kathryn donated over $25 million dollars to fighting climate change and help support voter turnout. Most notably the Get-out-the-vote campaigns in Georgia which resulted in two Senators losing their seats was financially supported by the couple too. The Murdoch couple also donated over $20 million dollars to the Biden campaign and other organizations that opposed President Donald Trump. The other $55 million was distributed to Environmental Defense Fund, Democracy Works Inc, Represent.Us and the Brennan Center for Justice.

What Will Happen To Fox News In The Future?

In 2019 the late legendary Fox News radio host Rush Limbaugh voiced his concerns about the future of Fox News and blasted the news network for sliding more and more to the left under the leadership of Rupert Murdoch’s sons. As of right now, Fox News still has better ratings than both of their competitors CNN, and MSNBC but if the 2020 election taught us anything it’s that people are awaking out of their slumber and no longer going to accept anything the media throws at them. That’s why Tucker Carlson has one of the highest-rated programs on the network because he’s not afraid to call a spade a spade or to put it in a more political analogy a RINO a RINO!
