Opinion| It has been reported that former Republican Speaker of the House Paul Ryan is to join Fox Corporation’s Board of Directors. The announcement was made on Tuesday morning.
What the hell is happening to Fox? Bret Baier and Shepherd Smith connive to take down Jeanine Pirro, and now the news network brings onboard the man responsible for control of the House going to the Democrats. Had Ryan supported President Trump’s agenda, heck, if Ryan simply made sure to fund the border wall, the Republicans would still be the majority party in the House and the country would not have to be dealing with absolute lunatics running the House.
Ryan and Formula One Group executive chairman Chase Carey will join Rupert Murdoch, Lachlan Murdoch, and Jacques Nasser as members of the powerful board. Aragon CEO Anne Dias and Hernandez Media Ventures chief Roland A. Hernandez have also been added.
“We are thrilled to welcome our new colleagues to the FOX board. We look forward to working with and being guided by them as we begin a new chapter, steadfastly committed to providing the best in news, sports and entertainment programming,” Lachlan Murdoch explained in a statement that was released.
The company had separated their entertainment divisions which Disney will be taking control of on Wednesday evening this past Tuesday. This includes 21st Century Fox, along with its associated movie studio and coinciding entertainment cable channels.
DavidHarrisJr.com reports, “Ryan’s appointment is noteworthy due to his history as someone in the leadership of the Republican Party. Rupert Murdoch and he have been friends for many years. In 2014, Murdoch named him as a presidential contender he had ‘particular admiration for.’”
Murdoch will have the title of co-chairman of the corporation, meaning he will be at the center of it all.
