James Murdoch has condemned the US media for “propagating lies” which have unleashed “insidious and uncontrollable forces” that will endure for years.
  • Questioned about whether Fox News – founded by his father Rupert Murdoch and run by his brother Lachlan – had played a role in the riot at the Capitol last week, he said media groups had amplified election disinformation, which successfully sowed falsehoods.

    Providing his sternest reproach yet of the US news industry since stepping away from the family business, Murdoch stopped short of naming Fox News
  • but the comments will be seen as a thinly veiled rebuke.
