President Biden reportedly called Fox News owner Rupert Murdoch the “most dangerous man in the world” according to an upcoming book by New York Times reporters.
According to The Hill:
Excerpts from the book by journalists Jonathan Martin and Alexander Burns obtained by CNN reveal Biden assessed Fox News “as one of the most destructive forces in the United States.”
The book reportedly describes Fox News as a “torrent of anti-Biden programming, stoking skepticism about vaccines and disseminating wild conspiracy theories about the January 6 attack.”
Biden’s alleged comments to Martin and Burns are the first the president has ever made publicly about Murdoch, CNN noted.
Biden has regularly sparred with Fox News since announcing his presidential campaign. The network has repeatedly called into question Biden’s mental fitness for office and held him accountable for his lack of leadership while more left-leaning networks have often gone above and beyond to provide excuses for President Biden.
Biden in January infamously was caught on a hot mic chiding Peter Doocy, once of Fox’s White House corespondents, calling him a “stupid son of a bitch” after Doocy had asked a question about inflation.
