News Politics: Lachlan Murdoch, the CEO and executive chairman of Fox Corp., has threatened legal action against a news organisation in his family’s country of Australia. Murdoch is already occupied with two multi-billion dollar defamation lawsuits against Fox News in the United States. The threat is a result of articles accusing him of being behind network propaganda that encouraged the siege of the US Capitol on January 6, 2021. Bring it on, says Australian political news outlet Crikey, whose editor-in-chief, Peter Fray, tells NPR from Sydney that Lachlan Murdoch “appears keen to dissociate himself from the acts of Fox in encouraging the January 6th uprising.” He is also making exceptional efforts to stifle public discourse in this nation.

So, in full-page ads set to appear today in The New York Times and the Canberra Times in the Australian capital city, Fray and Eric Beecher, the chairman of Crikey’s parent company, Private Media, proclaim they welcomed Murdoch’s threat of a lawsuit.

Fray says his news site was not literally saying Murdoch personally incited people to violence that day. But, Fray says, “the buck has to stop somewhere.”

Murdoch’s complaints arose from a June 29th piece driven by revelations about the activities of former President Donald Trump and his allies ahead of the insurrection at the U.S. Congress last year.
