Steve Bannon criticized Murdoch, saying his media empire is dumping Trump in favor of DeSantis

“Fox News, Wall Street Journal, New York Post, Times of London, The Sun etc. etc. etc. are all right against Trump,” Bannon wrote Wednesday on the right-wing website. Gettr Social Media Platform. He also attacked the Murdoch family as “Australians through England, not Americans” who “never sacrificed anything for this country”. Murdoch became a US citizen in 1984.

Murdoch has “zero feeling” for “America or the Americans,” Bannon added.

Bannon replied to article in Vanity Fair on Wednesday, saying “DeSantis’ fever is spreading through Murdoch’s media empire.”

The Murdoch-controlled media has recently launched a scathing attack on Trump, including unexpectedly scathing editorials earlier this month in the New York Post and the Wall Street Journal.

“Trump betrayed his supporters by deceiving them on January 6, and he continues to do so to this day,” the magazine wrote in a June 10 editorial.

“King Lear of Mar-a-Lago”, who cannot accept defeat, “became prisoner of one’s own ego‘, the Post reported the same day. ‘He won’t stop insisting that 2020 has been ‘stolen’ though he did not provide any evidence that this is true“.

Longtime Murdoch collaborator Piers Morgan wrote in Monday in the Post opinion article that “by almost any political metric you choose, this guy [DeSantis] a much better option for Republican leadership in the 2024 election than Donald Trump.”

A British TV presenter called Trump “an aging, angry gorilla who has turned into a whiny bore who defies democracy.” The headline read bluntly: “Time to Ditch Donald.”

Vanity Fair noted that Morgan, in fact, “lifted a grenade, pulled out the pin and threw it towards Mar-a-Lago.” More importantly, the feature article underscored Murdoch’s media message: “Drop Trump,” the magazine added.

Morgan predicted that DeSantis and Trump’s “mutual admiration society” was “about to fall apart.”

Morgan added, “If there’s one thing Trump can’t stomach more than people who don’t believe in his ‘rigged election’, it’s people who could jeopardize his chances of returning to the White House in 2024.”

The chill is already evident. DeSantis chose Not asking Trump to approve his bid for re-election for governor.

Trump posted Zogby Poll (which the rated B- for predictability last year) on Truth Social on Wednesday, which showed him leading with 54% of the expected vote to DeSantis’ 12% in a supposed multi-candidate primary presidential race. Fox News reported Wednesday that a poll in New Hampshire found that DeSantis the smallest advantage over Trump in this state.

Although Fox News missed the broadcast of the first of the televised hearings of the House Select Committee investigating the January 6, 2021 uprising, the network has aired the rest to date.

Following Tuesday’s hearing, Fox host Martha McCallum called “staggering” the lack of evidence to support Trump’s claims that the 2020 election was rigged against him.

One source told Vanity Fair: “Rupert Murdoch is a pragmatic guy. He knows better than anyone how to read political coffee grounds.”
