Lachlan Murdoch believes it’s Fox News job to oppose the Biden administration to improve their ratings.
Speaking at the Morgan Stanley TMT Conference on Thursday, he said “the main beneficiary of the Trump administration from a ratings point of view was MSNBC. That’s because they were the loyal opposition.” And “that’s what our job is now with the Biden administration. You’ll see our ratings really improve,” he predicted.
A rep for the NBC Universal News Group forcefully responded to Murdoch’s comment about MSNBC:
“Our role, and the role of any legitimate news organization — whether it includes an ‘opinion section’ or not — is to hold power to account, regardless of party.”
