Murdoch-Owned ‘N.Y. Post’ & ‘Wall St. Journal’ Blast Trump As ‘Unworthy’ To Be President After Jan. 6

Media mogul Rupert Murdoch, who owns Fox News, the New York Post and the Wall Street Journal, seems to have broken off his support for former President Donald Trump.

On Friday evening, the New York Post published its most-stinging critique of Trump to date.

“As his followers stormed the Capitol, calling for his vice-president to be hanged, President Donald Trump sat in his private dining room, watching TV, doing nothing. For three hours, seven minutes,” the op-ed by the Post‘s editorial board read.

“There has been much debate over whether Trump’s rally speech on Jan. 6, 2021, constituted ‘incitement.’ That’s somewhat of a red herring. What matters more — and has become crystal clear in recent days—is that Trump didn’t lift a finger to stop the violence that followed,” the board added.

The Wall Street Journal added another twist of the knife over the weekend condemning Trump for his lack of action on January 6, 2021, titled, “The President Who Stood Still on Jan. 6.” It dragged Trump as a president who “failed” to carry out the duties of his position.

“Character is revealed in a crisis, and Mr. Pence passed his January 6 trial. Mr. Trump utterly failed his,” the article read.

Sources report that Murdoch may be eyeing a younger politician to support in the 2024 election cycle, such as Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R), who has been deemed the biggest threat to Trump if the former president decides to run again.

“It’s up to the Justice Department to decide if this is a crime,” the Post‘s op-ed concluded following Thursday’s public hearing conducted by the House select committee that has been investigating the Capitol attack for the past year. “But as a matter of principle, as a matter of character, Trump has proven himself unworthy to be this country’s chief executive again.”
