Opinion – Well, this doesn’t look good.
Fox Corp, the parent company of Fox News, has hired Danny O”Brien to be its chief lobbyist.
NEWSMAX – The parent company of Fox News has hired a former top aide to Joe Biden as its chief lobbyist in Washington.
On Tuesday the new Fox Corp., a spin-off of 21st Century Fox which just merged with Disney, became a standalone public company, controlling television assets such as Fox News and the Fox television network.
Broadcasting & Cable reported that new Fox “hit the ground running on day one” with its Washington lobbying operation headed by Danny O’Brien, a well-known Democrat.
O’Brien was brought on last October as executive vice president and head of government relations for the Fox Corp.
Previously, he had served as Senator Joe Biden’s chief of staff and went on to head Biden’s 2008 presidential campaign.
In just a few days we have observed as Fox News:
- Jettisoned Judge Jeanine Pirro for pointed, but entirely reasoned and well-measured criticism of freshman Congresswoman Ilhan Omar
President Trump was right when he said the democrat party is now the anti-Israel party. Don’t forget Nancy, history has proven over and over when you appease to anti-Semitic sentiment, the worst happens. #OpeningStatement pic.twitter.com/vrnzhcu95o

- Hired former Al Gore campaign chief and former DNC head, Donna Brazile. Brazile provably lied to Fox’s audience in a previous interview during the 2016 presidential but that didn’t give the Murdochs’ pause.
- The Murdochs also appointed never-Trumper Paul Ryan to it’s management board. Ryan, you’ll remember essentially ran a campaign in opposition to President Trump for the past two years.
Now comes the announcement that O’Brien has been appointed the go-between between Fox Corp. and Congress. How much does Fox Corp. seek to influence Congress gives way to concerns that Fox News has opened a back channel for Congress to influence Fox’s presidential campaign reporting.
Consider that Fox, under the pro open borders management of Rupert Murdoch traveled this road before.

Bombshell Expose’ – Conservative Radio: Limbaugh, Ingraham, Hannity and Levin Were All Part of Gang-of-Eight “Gaslighting”…
Posted on February 28, 2016 by sundance
The New York Times has just laid virtually all of talk radio’s top conservative punditry naked to their enemies by revealing a coordinated effort, between them and top DC politicians, to “tamp-down” opposition to comprehensive immigration reform, and “gaslight” the national republican audience. A brutal expose’…
We already knew the aspect of Fox News via Rupert Murdoch, Roger Ailes, Sean Hannity and Bill O’Reilly meeting with Chuck Schumer, Lindsey Graham and Marco Rubio capturing promises to deliver favorable opinion for immigration reform. – Outlined HERE – We also knew, and wrote about how Fox Executives manipulated program content (including the blacklisting of amnesty critics) to support the collective agenda.
However, we did not know how far the scope of the influence was extended, nor did we know Rush Limbaugh was a direct participant. We also did not know that Laura Ingraham and Mark Levin were lobbied to participate.
Fox News’s founder, Rupert Murdoch, is a co-chair of what is arguably one of the biggest immigration lobbying firms in the country, The Partnership for a New American Economy. Via his lobbying firm, Murdoch has endorsed Rubio’s 2013 amnesty bill, as well as Rubio’s 2015 immigration expansion bill. Murdoch has also endorsed President Obama’s trade agenda, which Rubio has said would be the “second pillar” of a President Rubio’s three-pillar foreign policy strategy. – Breitbart News (February 3, 2016)
Realize what we are seeing take shape.
Understand that neither political party is affiliated with the government in any official capacity. The are private companies that represent the interests of their financial benefactors.
In most cases, and in all leadership positions, that means they represent the interests of Wall Street, the globalists multinationals (banks and corps), the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, and the Business Roundtable who deliver their marching orders through K-Street lobbyists.
All are aligned against President Trump’s stand on border security that threatens the flow of cheap labor into this country, as well as, his America First agenda that is rebuilding Main Street against their proprietary interests.
Like any two companies that find their mutual interests aligned, the sizeable portion of Republican Decepticons and the Marxist Democrats, are united to maintain resistance to, and removal of, President Trump.
This is the UniParty. This is the Club. This is the swamp. There are literally trillions of dollars – of your money – at stake and Donald Trump stands in their way.
Biden doesn't need $$$. He will have unlimited access to the biggest Wall Street (multinational corporate) financial vaults in modern political history; both here and abroad. What Biden lacks is grassroots voter data… Hence, Bernie and Beto sent to harvest. pic.twitter.com/KQKdw09giD
