    Source: James Murdoch's attack on News Corp and Fox News 'not discussed by board' | Media | The Guardian

    . . .
    On Wednesday James Murdoch, Rupert Murdoch’s son and a News Corp director, issued a joint statement with his wife, Kathryn Murdoch, in which the couple said they were frustrated by coverage of the climate crisis by Fox News and News Corp.

    “They are particularly disappointed with the ongoing denial among the news outlets in Australia given obvious evidence to the contrary,” a spokesperson for the couple said.
    . . .

    Murdoch news has been following Nero's example, “fiddled while Rome burned.”

    "It is difficult to get a man to understand something when his salary depends upon his not understanding it."

    So I wouldn't hold my breath on an about face by News Corp or Fox News on Climate Change.

    There is a large degree of optimism in anyone talking about good news in connection with Australia fires. He did day "maybe" though.

    Australia bushfires factcheck: are this year's fires unprecedented? | Australia news | The Guardian

    Not to diminish the possibility that Mankind's activity may very well be a contributory cause to global warming - but when the notion is coupled with the idea that it's the greatest evil of the past hundred years or longer? It really diminishes historic events like the slaughtering untold 10's of millions under the rule of the likes of Pol Pot, Mao Zedong - Jo Stalin - Hitler, not to forget the evils of drug wars & tribal slaughterings in Africa. With respect to those who differ - calling a spade a spade, possible man-made global warming is not the greatest evil of mankind's existence.

    A potential editorial change seems a little over the top to compare with famous crimes in history. Shall we instead discuss Masada, Carthage, Able and Cain?

    Perspective, seeing News Corp moving towards facts and data is a good thing. It is not the ‘Second Coming.’
