Rupert Murdoch Turned Passion and Grievance Into Money and Power

Rupert Murdoch Turned Passion and Grievance Into Money and Power

forget it.
These guys are like.
who the heck is this guy?
And he had everyone…
He outfoxed everyone to use the metaphor.
Yeah.
Listen.
Rupert has a long history of doing that.
extending right up till the seminal
deal with Disney.
Many people would say he got an incredible price for the Fox assets that were sold
to Disney.
And I remember when I broke that story.
of course.
the idea that Fox would actually
have been a seller.
but the way people have described Rupert Murdoch to me through
the years is that he’s hyper-rational.
Hyper-rational.
Hyper-rational.
When he sued me.
was that hyper-rational?
I don’t know about that.
Jim.
but in the case.
certainly.
of a decision to suddenly
do an about face and say.
you know what.
this is the time to sell.
and that you
could argue that it certainly was a good decision given.
imagine if Fox were dealing
with the same things.
that Disney isn’t so many others in the content business aren’t
going to come to streaming.
He chose.
no.
we’re going to be news and sports.
and yeah.
we’re going to sell
at a huge price.
We’re going to sell Sky.
We’re going to sell so many of the Fox content assets.
Pixie is.
you know.
Pixie.
I actually enjoy it.
and I did have a bit of a legal battle.
but I enjoyed it.
Fox News has changed the landscape in this country and democracy forever.
