    Fox News is everything that is wrong with the USA. They need to be reined in.

    • @John B you are so shallow not hard to know your opinions on any issue, whatever Trump’s opinion was you just repeat, parrot

    • @Mary UpLate in contrast to Cnn, lol.

    • Malcom Turnbull disrespect the office of Prime Minister. He was sacked by his own party.Any Australian knows that. Now he is starting on you Americans. By the way Malcom Turnbull is X Goldman Sachs. Where he ran back to after he was sacked

    • @Don Nwzad What country are you from????

    • If every person Fox lied about sued them for defamation–that would be the only thing that might reform the network.

  4. Let’s see how the defamation lawsuits work out.
    It could be the beginning of honest journalism with guard rails…

      @Ben Stewart Suuuure. Rupert murdoch is driving the hate . Tell you what, lets do an expirement. You wear a trump hat in a major city, and I’ll wear a hillary/biden/ obama hat somewhere of your choosing. We’ll quickly find out whose more tolerant!

    • @grandma k. Russian had great influence in the election? Please tell me how? Do you think any conservative voters voted for Trump because of Russian influence? They voted for Trump because they hated Obama. They voted for Trump for his economy, immigration polices ect ect. You are delusional if you think some facebook ads did anything. Russia’s economy is tiny they have zero influence. Trump was right China is a way bigger threat and risk

    • @grandma k. Paul Manafort gave some polling deta to a Russian official. Oh my god! That changes everything! The election must have been rigged! You are seriously a delusional lefty. Stop watching cnn or whatever lefty version of cnn you watch in ur country

    Here in Australia it’s not only Turnbull, he’s teamed up with Rudd to fight Murdoch. Two ex PM’s from the right and left who are trying to get a royal commission going looking into his monopoly on our media. Murdoch is a truly evil person as his record shows.

  7. No one has done more to hurt western democracy since WWII than Murdoch. He is the worst of us.

    • @Rick Starling that’s only because clown cable has been pushing fake propaganda down your throat and you are too stupid to believe otherwise

    • @Michael rushoki funny you bring up morals on clown cables channel LMAO

    • @Rick Starling and yet clown cable’s employee’s all know they are working for the propaganda network joseph goebbels would be proud of

      Yes, entirely accurate. Hypocritically and ignorantly, the Trump-cult’s slogan, “Make America Great Again”, is referring to a time when America was a democratic-socialist nation.

      Democratic socialism was used to pull the US out of the Great Depression with FDR’s New Deal and worked exceedingly well up until 1980, when Reagan’s economics started to reduce and eventually lower the life expectancy of the average American.

      “Even before the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic occurred, the US was mired in a 40-year population health crisis. Since 1980, life expectancy in the US has increasingly fallen behind that of peer countries, culminating in an unprecedented decline in longevity since 2014.”

      “We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”

    For all of you that don’t know Malcom Turnbull was a conservative prime minister in Australia and him and the former labour prime minister Kevin Rudd have being working to stop the Murdochs

      @Eh-lien No, there is no Conservative party in the US, as there is in the UK, Australia and Canada. We have conservatives (note the small ‘c’), and most have left the Republican party in disgust.

    • Labor party*

    • Nor is Fox allowed to call their ‘News’ a news channel. At least with parliamentary system we can get rid of PM’s if needed. USA isn’t making being a Republic system too brilliant thing for the people to have. America is going to take years to recover their right to say ‘Be like our democracy’. The rest of the world are looking in and wondering if your public ever going to realise that you don’t have one.

    • @agf1700 that wont stop them mate cmon

    • CNN is the reason why there are so many crimes in the USA right now.


    • CNN is the reason why there are so many crimes in the USA right now.

    • @L What BS, Turnbull and Rudd are exposing the truth about Murdoch and News Corp, they control 70% of the media in Australia, their influence on politics is immense, they’re virtually an arm of the Liberal Party. The Murdoch’s use Sky News and their newspapers to spread their extreme rightwing agenda and propaganda to the public, you’re beyond gullible and ignorant if you believe otherwise.

      CNN staffer caught on tape saying network tried to help the Black Lives Matter movement

    • @Dorian Shades of gray nope, you’re thinking of Tony Abbott. Now there’s a guy who is REALLY hated 😉

    • Lots of partisan Aussies replying here. Turnbull wasn’t the worst, wasn’t the best P.M. What he is saying is true, the Murdoch’s are evil. Remember, this is the family that tapped telephones of murder victim’s families in the U.K. The U.S. has a press freedom in its horrid constitution but Fox claims to be “entertainment”. Wouldn’t be hard to slap some bans on them then watch them squirm and say they are “news”.

    Hat s off to you Mr. Turnbull. I am neither an Aussie, an American or a Brit. But I truly admire you for taking on the Murdochs and their evil media empire.

    • Don’t listen to him he’s X Goldman Sachs. Australia had to get rid of him

    • CNN promoted and lied to the American people my entire lifetime.
      Every single War in the Middle East they actively promoted and lied to the American people.
      CNN is still looking for the weapons of Mass destruction i believe
      In fact you can still find CNN faking “war” footage on YouTube in the Middle East 🤔

    • @QuincyBear Good on yah Brother

    Murdoch is why I never watch British news… or much news… and have to be careful with ANY news….
    I can’t overstate how much harm the Murdochs do to everyone on the planet.

    • @Dorian Shades of gray Most all of the SOMEWHAT straight shooters at Faux are GONE thanks to the CULT of TRAITOR President Trump and his lies.

    • @R Wags It’s a cult. They believe the most ridiculous crap. Arrogance and idiocy to the extreme.

    • @Ryan Parker I’ll save everyone the trouble. That link you supplied is pure bullshit intended to: Trigger. Frighten. Indoctrinate.
      My advice? Get off YouTube/Twitter/Facebook, pick up a book, get a map, learn another language, travel the world. Your eyes will be opened.

      @Kriptz you have issues

  13. What depresses me is that we have known, and I’ve been saying this, for forty years. Good on ya Malcolm.
    Here in the UK the rot set in when Rupert bought the Times, and then the Sun. The hate and bile started pouring out almost immediately. And then he started Sky.
    And then there was Lachlan.

    How the Murdoch has been able to go unpunished is beyond me. They single handily helped create the insurrection movement that led to j6.

    2 of Australia’s former priminister are condemning Rupert media monopoly the other one is Kevin Rudd, who is leading a royal commission against the Murdock empire, Go Kevin07 one of Australia’s best PMs since Hawke and Keating.

  17. An other reason to be glad to live in GERMANY – Murdoch has no Newspapers or TV-Channels here!

    Turnbull is saying exactly what I and many others have been saying for years, though he puts it succinctly, using gentleman’s parlance. Thank you Malcolm, for speaking truth so clearly.

    • Amen. The Murdock family is a world disgrace

    • @hairy butt sniff yup. You’re moniker and that post proved you to be a trump supporter. Lol.

      I agree,but the problem is that many people in the US have the same views as Murdoch and Co.And the same applies in Australia.It’s not about crazy,it’s about extreme right wing tendencies and all that applies.

    • CNN is the reason why there are so many crimes in the USA right now.

    • @Kriptz WTF?? OH you’re one of those pasty face nazi wannabes lol. Get professional help adolph

    The desire for power for its own sake is simply psychopathic.

  20. This man is SO TRUE! Murdock is 1 of the root causes for what has happened in the USA!

    • Malcom Turnbull disrespect the office of Prime Minister. He was sacked by his own party.Any Australian knows that. Now he is starting on you Americans. By the way Malcom Turnbull is X Goldman Sachs. Where he ran back to after he was sacked

      After the Dump Error,we can all see how wealth and power corrupts.

    • The main thing, in my opinion, is the sheer ignorance of the people who refuse to believe facts, and believe ( because they choose to) only what they want to. Newsmax, fox, one America news, are scandal ridden outlets. What’s far more worrisome to me, isn’t the crap they spew minute by minute, but those who choose to believe their perfidious bull S**t. We all witnessed the ramifications on Jan.6. We have, in this country, some of the most ignorant, wastes of space probably in human history.
