(trendingpoliticsnews) – Media tycoon Rupert Murdoch found himself in a confrontation with a fan of Tucker Carlson in a video clip that resurfaced online, capturing an encounter in which he denied any involvement in the firing of Carlson from Fox News.
“Did you fire Tucker Carlson? Did you fire my favorite guy, Tucker Carlson?” the person asked. “Why’d you lie, Mr. Murdoch?”
“I didn’t do it,” Murdoch responded.
Murdoch’s denial is not surprising given the influential role he has played in shaping the media landscape for decades. As the chairman of News Corp, which owns Fox News, Murdoch has been at the center of numerous controversies and has often been a target of criticism from those who disagree with his viewpoints.
Critics of Murdoch remain convinced that the media mogul had a direct hand in Carlson’s departure, arguing that Murdoch’s personal leanings may have influenced the network’s decision-making process.
