Wow, it’s the third Fox News controversy this week! First, they suspended Judge Jeanine, then they hired former DNC chair Donna Brazile, and now they are giving RINO Ryan a job as well!
As 21st Century Fox was recently acquired by Disney, the Fox News network broke off to form its own company, Fox Corp.
And, guess who was appointed as a board of director of this new company? That’s right, none other than Paul Ryan – the so-called Republican who recently criticized Trump’s ability to win in 2020 and stepped down from his duties as House Speaker!
Check it out:
NBC News reported on the story:
Fox Corporation debuted as a public company on Tuesday with a new board member — former House Speaker Paul Ryan.
The company, which includes Fox News and the Fox broadcasting network, had been dubbed by some in the media industry as "New Fox." On Tuesday it announced the completion of its separationfrom 21st Century Fox, which houses the company's TV and movie assets that are being acquired by Walt Disney Co. The new entity will trade on the Nasdaq exchange.
Ryan, a Wisconsin Republican, stepped down as speaker in Januaryafter about 20 years in the House, saying he wanted to spend more time with his family.
Ryan’s position on the board provides Fox with a politically connected ally who can help advocate on behalf of the company, which is expected to attempt to acquire other media companies.
The Washington Post had the following to say:
Former House speaker Paul D. Ryan has landed his first post-Congress job as a board member for Fox, the new parent company of Fox News.
Fox spun off from the larger 21st Century Fox, which Rupert Murdoch sold to Walt Disney Co.
Ryan (R-Wis.), who retired from Congress last year citing his desire to spend more time with his family, was named to the board Tuesday. A Fox news release credited him for leading “efforts to revise the federal tax code, rebuild the national defense, expand domestic energy production, combat the opioid epidemic, and reform the criminal justice system.”
