Rupert Murdoch Under Fire for Erratic Behavior: ‘The King Is Senile but No One Wants to Say Anything’

Fox News boss Rupert Murdoch is coming under fire for a recent string of erratic decisions that ended with the shocking firing of Fox News star Tucker Carlson.

Fox News has not explained the decision to fire Carlson other than to issue a two-sentence statement thanking the top anchor for his service.

The rumors are flying as to why Fox would dump its cash cow.

Most argue that the move has to do with a lawsuit filed by an ex-Fox News producer.

But a man with close ties to the Murdoch empire is floating a more serious reason for Carlson’s dismissal in Vanity Fair.

92-year-old Rupert Murdoch has been showing his age recently.

The billionaire just broke off a two-week engagement to his ex-fiancée Ann Lesley Smith.

This came right after he shocked his wife, Jerry Hall, with a surprise divorce.

Vanity Fair’s Gabe Sherman writes that that weird decision “is part of a string of erratic decisions he has made of late that raises questions about Murdoch’s leadership of his media empire.

“According to sources, executives at Fox are worried about Murdoch’s unsteady hand at the wheel of the company,” Sherman reports.

“’It’s like the King is senile but no one wants to say anything,’ the source said.

“According to two sources, Fox settled with Dominion moments before the trial was set to begin because Fox’s lawyers didn’t want Murdoch to testify in public,” Sherman continues.

“They were hoping and praying to settle for months, but they didn’t want to pay up,’ the second source said.

“Once the trial began, the lawyers told Fox execs that Murdoch would be ‘disgraced on the stand, run out of the boardroom, and his testimony will expose him as a lunatic sliding into senility.’

“The person close to Murdoch disputed this. ‘Rupert was very well prepared to testify,’” Sherman writes.
