The FCC Chairman and the President No one elected Obama to hand over the media to the likes of Rupert Murdoch. Yes, he donated to his campaign, but this giveaway is a doublecross to the American people. An ex-Fox executive is now running the Tribune even before Murdoch officially, though indirectly, takes over the Tribune and LA Times. There is very little he doesn't own: WSJ, Barrons, New York Post, Fox non-news, Fox movies, Fox sports, Fox business, and the list goes on; and then there's NewsMax, a deceptive right-wing rag and internet outlet. In Britain, he's considered an alleged criminal for the phonehacking, but here we bow down to him and his cronies. And he's not the only right-wing media group being handed the airwaves . What's up, Mr. President?
