Media mogul Rupert Murdoch is reportedly losing faith in Florida Governor Ron DeSantis’ ability to defeat Donald Trump in the Republican primaries for the 2024 election.
According to The New York Times, Murdoch instead hopes that Virginia Governor Glenn Youngkin joins the already crowded Republican primary race, as he sees another Trump presidency as “unhealthy” for the Republican Party. …
Earlier this week, Rolling Stone reported that Murdoch and other executives at Fox have “grown increasingly displeased” with DeSantis’ “stumbles, lackluster polling, and inability to swiftly dethrone Trump.”
Murdoch, whose empire contains Fox News, formerly supported Trump, but has been distancing himself from the ex-president over the past years, especially in light of the campaign to overturn the 2020 election.
Murdoch forbade any of his media empire from considering the possibility that the US 2020 elections were rigged or unfair. Despite that, and the best efforts of the rest of the MSM, the latest polls show that 62% of Americans now believe Biden did not legitimately win the 2020 election.
