Just weeks ago the New York Post, a tabloid newspaper owned by Fox News boss Rupert Murdoch, published a ridiculously false story involving Joe Biden and Hunter Biden. It was clear that the Post was entirely in Donald Trump’s pocket. But now that’s taken a sharp turn tonight.
The New York Post just ran an article with this headline: “Downcast Trump makes baseless election fraud claims in White House address.” That’s right, even the Post has now turned against him. This suggests that Murdoch has given his newspaper the go ahead to turn against Trump, on the expectation that Trump is going to lose anyway.
Now we wait to see how soon Murdoch’s other property, Fox News, ends up calling Pennsylvania for Joe Biden. Tick tock.
