Kelly Ripa
If I had sat there saying, I have job security here at Fox News, they're not going to fire me, they're going to pay me very well,' that would have been a decision based on fear. Fear of the unknown, fear of failure. And that's an unhealthy place from which to make any decision.feedback

Karen Bradley

Ofcom has now confirmed it considers this to raise non-fanciful concerns, but which are not sufficiently serious to warrant referral. I consider that these non-fanciful concerns do warrant further consideration. The fact that Fox belatedly established such procedures does not ease my concerns, nor does Fox's compliance history.feedback

Karen Bradley

The existence of non-fanciful concerns means that - as a matter of law - the threshold for a reference on the broadcasting standards ground is met.feedback

Karen Bradley

I have the power to make a reference [to the CMA] if I believe there is a risk - which is not purely fanciful - that the merger might operate against the specified public interests.feedback

Josh Herrmann - Tab Media

The mindset we're looking for is super hungry, anti-establishment, and a little subversive.feedback

Erik Wemple

Last month, a guy from Kentucky sabotaged a “Fox & Friends” segment staged at a diner in the Louisville area. “FOX LIES, ” read a sign that the man had prepared for this moment. He found out about the diner’s TV guests, however, by watching Fox News. “You have to check out the competition, ” contractor Bob Reams told this blog. “You have to check out what they’re saying. If I didn’t watch them, I wouldn’t hate them. I wouldn’t know what they’re up to.”.feedback

Bill O'Reilly

I've got a kids book I want millions of kids to look at, that's what I'm interested in. Not making my network look bad. It's open season let's whack the Fox News Channel, I've had enough of it! It's a good place to work alright? If somebody is paying you a wage, you owe that person or company allegiance. You don't like what's happening in the workplace, go to human resources or leave.feedback

Suzanne Scott - Fox News Channel

Eric has cultivated a strong fan base and has become a staple to the Fox News brand. His insight is valued, and we are pleased to have him at the network for many more years to come.feedback

Jack Rivlin

It was right after Glastonbury so we were nursing some pretty sore heads. I didn't have any clean shoes so I borrowed some from a friend's father, and we were covered in glitter. I knew news was something they value, so I printed out a hundred of our best stories. The message must have really appealed compared to other pitches that may be really technical.feedback

Jack Rivlin

I think News Corps reputation for journalism is seriously impressive. They own the Sunday Times, which exposed Lance Armstrong for drug cheating, and the Wall Street Journal, which has won three Pulitzer prizes in the last four years.feedback

Rebekah Brooks - News Corporation

The Tab and Babe have the youngest editorial staff we've ever seen, and they have built an incredible connection with the new generation of young people in the US and UK. News Corp champions original journalism and this is an exciting investment for us, with opportunities to support grassroots talent on both sides of the Atlantic.feedback

Les Hinton - News International

Rupert Murdoch was a big part of my working life and this book contains my version of the truth about him. Rupert could be hell to work for and he earned many of his enemies. He's a driven businessman with heavy boots who bruised a lot of people. But, love or hate him, he's an authentic colossus. I saw him at all angles – brilliant, brutal, and often – to the surprise of many – extraordinarily kind.feedback

Tomi Lahren

I am blessed and honored to join the Fox News team. This exciting new step will allow me to give voice to all the America-loving patriots who have had my back since day one. I will remain a solid and passionate advocate for you. Thank you for following me on my journey. I assure you, I will always stand up and speak out for our brave service members, our law enforcement community, our veterans and hardworking Americans from coast to coast. The Fox News digital future is bright and I can't wait to take it to new heights!feedback

John F. Harris - Politico

Rightwing populists are operating according to different rules. If everything is a circus, who cares about bread?This week brought a fascinating spectacle indeed: Donald Trump telling the unvarnished truth. The occasion was a joint press conference with the stoic-looking president of Finland, three days after Hurricane Harvey made landfall and Trump simultaneously announced his pardon of Joe Arpaio – the notorious former sheriff of Maricopa County, Arizona, who was facing a possible jail sentence for defying a court order to stop racially profiling Latino people. Up popped the White House correspondent for Fox News with a couple of simple questions: why had Trump done it, and what was his response to those people who insisted he was wrong?feedback

Jim Cramer

When President Trump sticks to the script on his teleprompter, the market seems to go higher. When he's all caught up in the enthusiasm of the moment and starts improvising, he says things that get in the way of his economic agenda. So let me be real, Mr. President: I like your economic agenda! So would you mind being kind enough to emphasize it even when you extemporize? It could be fun! Instead, talking about the wall or Obamacare or protesters or the non-Fox News media just creates a distraction that pushes out the agenda.feedback

Charlie Sykes

In order to be really influential with Breitbart, you have to have a cohesive conservative media. If other outlets don't pick their stuff up, it doesn't have the same resonance. He needs talk radio, Drudge, Fox News, to act as megaphones. It wouldn't really be a good fit for us.feedback

Brian Wieser - Pivotal Research Group

James has to be mindful that the health of the overall enterprise is dependent on Fox News holding up.feedback

Brian Wieser - Pivotal Research Group

He is trying to straddle a recognition that there are a lot of problems out there, and whether Fox News has contributed to them or not, the problems exist. Even though James is technically the C.E.O., he's somewhere between can't and won't do anything that would cause changes to Fox News. This is a tricky divide.feedback

Jennifer Rubin

James Murdoch, chief executive of 21st Century Fox, has pledged to donate $1 million to the Anti-Defamation League, according to an email he sent to friends. He told them, “What we watched this last week in Charlottesville and the reaction to it by the President of the United States concern all of us as Americans and free people.” He continued: “These events remind us all why vigilance against hate and bigotry is an eternal obligation - a necessary discipline for the preservation of our way of life and our ideals. The presence of hate in our society was appallingly laid bare as we watched swastikas brandished on the streets of Charlottesville and acts of brutal terrorism and violence perpetrated by a racist mob.” In pointed criticism of President Trump, he went on: “I can’t even believe I have to write this: standing up to Nazis is essential; there are no good Nazis. Or Klansmen, or terrorists. Democrats, Republicans, and others must all agree on this, and it compromises nothing for them to do so.”.feedback

Angelo Carusone - Media Matters

Much of what Donald Trump said this week that James Murdoch is condemning actually came directly from Fox News. So if James Murdoch really believes what he wrote in that email, then he needs to start with Fox News, the network that he runs.feedback

James Murdoch - Fox News Channel

The presence of hate in our society was appallingly laid bare as we watched swastikas brandished on the streets of Charlottesville and acts of brutal terrorism and violence perpetrated by a racist mob. I can't even believe I have to write this: standing up to Nazis is essential; there are no good Nazis. Or Klansmen, or terrorists. Democrats, Republicans, and others must all agree on this, and it compromises nothing for them to do so.feedback

Rupert Murdoch - News Corporation

I'm writing to you in a personal capacity, as a concerned citizen and a father. It has not been my habit to widely offer running commentary on current affairs, nor to presume to weigh in on the events of a given day save those that might be of particular or specific concern to 21CF and my colleagues. But what we watched this last week in Charlottesville and the reaction to it by the President of the United States concern all of us as Americans and free people.feedback

Erik Wemple

Hey, Sean Hannity, make room for colleague Harris Faulkner. Pro-Trump shilling during the daytime at Fox News is approaching your level of eagerness.feedback

Rupert Murdoch - News Corporation

This is a significant day for all at Fox News. Bill has played a huge role in building Fox News to its present position as the nation's biggest and most important cable channel in the history of the industry. His contribution to our channel and our country will resonate for many years.feedback

Megyn Kelly

While I will greatly miss my colleagues at Fox, I am delighted to be joining the NBC News family and taking on a new challenge. I remain deeply grateful to Fox News, to Rupert, Lachlan and James Murdoch, and especially to all of the FNC viewers, who have taught me so much about what really matters. More to come soon.feedback

Lachlan Murdoch - 21st Century Fox

In news, the Fox News Channel was the most-watched cable network for the last 12 months, during which it achieved its highest-rated quarter ever in 24-hour viewership. We believe that as time-shifted, on-demand and ad-free viewing continue to grow in popularity, our strengths in live news and sports globally is a great advantage. News and sports, the least likely programming to be watched delayed, comprised more than half of our advertising revenues.feedback

Ed Miliband

Six years ago people vowed that the anguish caused to grieving families like the Dowlers by the Murdoch empire would never be allowed again. Now in 2017 we see another grieving family – the parents of Seth Rich – also suffering deep anguish at the hands of that empire without so much as an apology. If ever an episode showed why the Murdochs should not be allowed more control of our media, it is this.feedback

David Folkenflik

Rupert Murdoch has been in this place before, where he has to decide how much he wants his outlets to be serious news organisations or not.feedback

Jeff Zucker

Thank you everybody for coming to this Fox News party. People on television, as people in this room know, are a strange breed. But there's nobody more normal and more real than this one. I'm so grateful that you guys are still my friends.feedback

Ryan Lizza - The New Yorker

Scoop: Trump is dining tonight w/Sean Hannnity [sic], Bill Shine (former Fox News executive), & Anthony Scaramucci, per to 2 knowledgeable sources.feedback

Ian Whittaker - Liberum Capital Limited

In some ways, the results are academic as the main driver for the share price is the Fox bid. However, with the bid likely to come under review from the Competition Authorities and subject to political approval, if there is any concern the bid will not go through, the shares could come under pressure as investors focus more on the fundamentals.feedback

Jennifer Rubin

A large segment of Republican voters should try turning off Fox News and allowing reality to permeate the shell they’ve constructed to keep out ideas that interfere with their prejudices and abject ignorance. Unfair? Take a look at the latest poll to suggest that Trump voters like their cult hero feel compelled to label inconvenient facts “fake news.” Morning Consult reporters: “A plurality of Republicans say President Donald Trump received more of the popular vote in 2016 than his Democratic rival, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. According to a new Morning Consult/POLITICO poll, 47 percent of Republican voters said Trump outpaced Clinton - despite her nearly 2.9 million-vote advantage after all the states certified their election results.”.feedback

Steve Doocy

Well, on Sunday, the New York Times sent Fox News a lengthy statement saying the Times described its 2015 reporting prior to the Pentagon before publication and they had no objection and no senior American officials had complained publicly until now. You want to read the entire statement? It is posted on FoxNews.com.feedback

Anthony Scaramucci

The politicians don't want to go at Trump because he's got a big mouth and [they're] afraid he's going to light them up on Fox News and all these other places, but I'm not a politician. You're an inherited money dude from Queens County – bring it, Donald. Bring it.feedback

Greg Dyke

They got Parry onside. He was flown up to see Murdoch and given all of the Murdoch shit, you know. Rick came back and said he was the most impressive person he'd ever met.feedback

Karen Bradley

Nothing I have seen so far has changed my mind but I am going to look at all representations I have received. I will look at them all to see what evidence they provide. Ofcom's report on broadcasting standards was clear, unequivocal, there were no grounds on which I can refer. I am therefore looking [to see if there is any] new evidence, new substantive evidence.feedback

Damian Green

All those appointed by Her Majesty and the Queen to Cabinet and ministerial roles are selected by the Prime Minister based on their merit and experience, drawing on each member's best talent. The decision is the Prime Minister's alone.feedback

Tom Watson

With 21st Century Fox's bid for Sky being considered by the government right now, questions about Rupert Murdoch's influence over Theresa May were already being asked. This makes them all the more relevant.feedback

Damian Green

Government ministers are fully transparent about such meetings, but I observe that the Labour party has still failed to publish any information about shadow cabinet members' meetings with senior media executives since Jeremy Corbyn became leader - including your own meetings.feedback

Neil Doncaster

There was very strong interest in the role from a host of highly-qualified candidates, but Murdoch was the board's unanimous choice and we look forward to working with him as we continue to drive the game to even greater success in Scotland.feedback

Neil Doncaster

Murdoch brings with him a wealth of top-level business and media experience and has been at the cutting edge of the digital revolution as CEO and now deputy chairman of the Telegraph Media Group. He demonstrated a real passion for the role and a clear insight into the opportunities and challenges we will face in the years ahead.feedback

Ralph Topping

I've greatly enjoyed my time in Scottish football and it was an honour to be chairman of the SPL and SPFL, especially during a period of substantial change and challenge. After advising the SPFL board in January that developing business commitments meant that I had decided to leave, I am delighted that my final act as chairman is to have secured the appointment of Murdoch as the new chairman.feedback

Murdoch MacLennan

I am thrilled to have been selected to be the next chairman of the Scottish Professional Football League, and to build on the achievements of Ralph Topping. I am so proud to be a part of its future. I greatly look forward to working with Neil Doncaster and to the opportunities and challenges that are ahead for the whole of Scottish football.feedback

Brian Stelter

The real journalists at Fox News must be disappointed that Don Jr. is talking to Hannity, not them.feedback

Joe Scarborough

It's better for America and the world if he turns his set to Fox News. Stay calm. Stay in the bubble.feedback

Karen Bradley

The proposed entity would have the third largest total reach of any news provider – lower only than the BBC and ITN – and would, uniquely, span news coverage on television, radio, in newspapers and online. Ofcom's report states that the proposed transaction would give the Murdoch Family Trust material influence over news providers with a significant presence across all key platforms.feedback

Alice Enders - Enders Analysis

What she is saying is that she is going by the book. She is going to make sure she has bulletproof cover.feedback

Karen Bradley

The transaction may increase members of the Murdoch family trust's ability to influence the overall news agenda and their ability to influence the political process, and it may also result in the perception of increased influence. These are clear grounds whereby referral to a Phase 2 investigation is warranted, so that is what I am minded to do.feedback

Meredith Alexander

This emerging scandal, and the denials and obstruction by senior people at Fox, are analogous to the industrial-scale phone hacking in the U.K.feedback

Tom Watson

The secretary of state has known all along what she wants to end up doing but she has to follow the established dance steps.feedback

Tom Watson

The culture secretary’s inclination to call in the takeover bid is no surprise. Labour would review media ownership rules and stop backroom deals• Tom Watson is deputy leader of the Labour party. Rupert Murdoch wields enormous power through his global network of media companies, particularly in Australia, the US and the UK. He’s adept at leveraging commercial dominance to win political influence, which leads to the removal of legislative or regulatory barriers to further expansion. It’s a tested formula, but it’s hard to discern how the rest of us benefit. What a pleasant surprise it would be to see his ceaseless expansion thwarted. I’m not holding my breath.feedback

Gregory M. Lipper

We litigated against a number of religious organizations, and they all, generally, have similar or slightly different angles. But the ACLJ seemed to become much more like a movement right-wing organization. They were very noisy on Islamic terrorism . . . and they started to sound more like Fox News than focusing specifically on free speech or religious liberty issues.feedback

Polo Tang - UBS

In terms of potential remedies, should the issues arise we continue to think Fox could revisit a spinoff of Sky News, as it did with the original bid for Sky in 2010-11. Separately, James Murdoch could step down as chairman of Sky, but remain chief executive of Fox.feedback

Alison Poltock

I don't know whether to laugh or cry. The film in question, Forgotten Man addressed the stigma of homelessness so I do hope it made a positive impact on him.feedback

Gabriel Sherman

It is hard to overstate the significance of what shedding 'Fair & Balanced' means for Fox News. Ailes invented the slogan when he launched the network in 1996, and over the years it became a quasi-religious doctrine among Fox's anchors and viewers. The effectiveness of Fox News as a vehicle for conservative ideology depended on it.feedback

Aidan Barclay - Telegraph Media Group

He has the ideal background and track record to build on the successful business we run today and I'm very optimistic about our future. He has led The Telegraph's transformation during a period of profound change within the media and I look forward to continuing to work closely with him.feedback

Murdoch MacLennan

I am immensely proud of everything we have achieved at The Telegraph, and honoured to become deputy chairman of the group. I look forward to representing The Telegraph on a number of national and international organisations fighting for press and commercial freedom. I wish Nick well and look forward to continuing to support him and the Telegraph Media Group team in my new role.feedback

Aidan Barclay - Telegraph Media Group

I am delighted that Nick Hugh is to become chief executive. He has the ideal background and track record to build on the successful business we run today and I'm very optimistic about our future. I am extremely grateful to Murdoch for his work over the last 13 years. He has led The Telegraph's transformation during a period of profound change within the media and I look forward to continuing to work closely with him.feedback

Michael Gove

Tom sees Rupert Murdoch's hand behind everything. I think Tom believes that Rupert Murdoch picks the England cricket XI and the rugby first XV as well as decide who is on Britain's Got Talent. This is par for the course for Tom when it comes to political mischief making.feedback

Tom Watson

I am writing to ask you about any influence Rupert Murdoch may have sought to exert over cabinet appointments. Specifically, it has been suggested to me that Rupert Murdoch asked you to appoint Gove to the cabinet. Given your failure to secure a parliamentary majority and the consequent weakness of your position, it might be tempting to allow yourself to be influenced by powerful media proprietors who can shape the way your government is covered.feedback

Tom Watson

It has been suggested to me that Rupert Murdoch asked you to appoint Michael Gove to the Cabinet. Given your failure to secure a parliamentary majority and the consequent weakness of your position, it might be tempting to allow yourself to be influenced by powerful media proprietors who can shape the way your government is covered. Congratulations on your election campaign, by the way. Fantastic stuff, well done.feedback

Suzanne Scott - Fox News Channel

Eric has cultivated a strong fan base and has become a staple to the FOX News brand. His insight is valued and we are pleased to have him at the network for many more years to come.feedback

Clayton Morris

Earlier on the show, we had a couple of guests mention the word internment, the idea of internment camps, as a possible solution to this. I think I made it well-known my feeling on that, which I find reprehensible, but on behalf of the network, I think all of us here find that idea reprehensible here at Fox News Channel. Just to be clear.feedback

Megyn Kelly

I'll put it to you this way: It was very, very rare that I ever cried on Fox News – I think it happened twice in my 12 years there. And I've already cried repeatedly [at NBC]! I'm just a hot mess over here. But it's been lovely. The chance to feel emotion is always welcome in our jobs, so it's really been enriching for me.feedback

Clare Lugar

Groundwater replenishment ticks two of these boxes - increases water recycling and developing a new source. It is a climate-independent source of water, and the new plant at Beenyup will have the capacity to supply the same amount of water used by 100,000 homes each year.feedback

Wendell Ela

That's inevitable and it's not a bad thing because any time we talk about water we should be interested in the water we are getting and the quality we are getting. You want it to essentially be a net zero balance.feedback

Steve Korinko

Check out Fox News. They just reported that this guy was a follower of Marcus. You better get your story out quick.feedback

Seth Meyers

Trump's idea of presidential is trying to get to the conference room before the free pizza is gone. Well, here's a sentence I never thought I'd say: thank you, Fox News, for telling us the truth.feedback

Sean Hannity

I did it out of my own heart. Nobody tells me what to say on my show. They never have and frankly they never will. I'm not that type of person you can say, Go on air and say this.' That's been the beauty of Fox News all these years. They leave me alone.feedback

Jim Trainor - Hyundai Motor America

We are aware of the sensitive story line raised by Mr. Hannity and expect Fox News will use editorial discretion to ensure that all reporting is substantiated.feedback

Monica Lewinsky

Although I imagine the desire to present a clean record to the European Commission reviewing the Sky News deal played a role in their thinking, the brothers Murdoch deserve praise for their part in the decision to fire Bill O'Reilly, whose show brought in $100 million a year in ad revenue but who systemically harassed and bullied the women he worked with. I hope the Murdochs understand that Americans will no longer tolerate a corporate culture that views hate and harassment as part of running a successful news business.feedback

Judd Burstein

Fox News has now handed me the smoking gun – evidence that they were electronically surveilling Ms. Tantaros's telephone conversations. Plainly, there was a slip-up between Fox News and its lawyers, which caused this unwitting self-immolation.feedback

Barack Obama

Part of it is Fox News in every bar and restaurant in big chunks of the country. But part of it is also Democrats not working at a grassroots level, being in there, showing up, making arguments. That part of the critique of the Democratic Party is accurate.feedback

Monica Lewinsky

Ailes, a former Republican political operative, took the story and the trial that followed and made certain his anchors hammered it ceaselessly. My family and I huddled at home, worried about my going to jail – I was the original target of Ken Starr's investigation, threatened with 27 years for having been accused of signing a false affidavit, obstructing justice, suborning perjury and other crimes – or worse, me taking my own life. Meantime, Mr. Ailes huddled with his employees at Fox News, dictating a lineup of talking heads to best exploit this personal and national tragedy.feedback

Erik Wemple

Fox News viewers haven’t seen a change in the tone and outlook of the network’s broadcasts since the departure last summer of chief Roger Ailes. There’s still plenty of apologism for President Trump; slanted coverage savaging Obamacare and other legacies of the former president; and demagoguing any immigration topic in sight.feedback

Kerwin Swint

Roger Ailes was first and foremost a political consultant. He brought to Fox News this real politically oriented, take-no-prisoners mentality to news programming. He and Rupert Murdoch believed there was a whole lot of American conservatives out there who didn't really watch the news, because they thought it was liberal and they wanted something else … It was an untapped market.feedback

Kerwin Swint

There's no question there's tremendous carryover from the Fox News audience base to supporters of Donald Trump. Trump was able to tap into that eager Fox News consumer that really bought into a lot of the things he said in the campaign.feedback

Rupert Murdoch - News Corporation

Everybody at Fox News is shocked and grieved by the death of Roger Ailes. Roger and I shared a big idea which he executed in a way no one else could have. Roger was a patriot, who never ceased fighting for his beliefs.feedback

Roger Ailes - Fox

They just believe what they believe and they think their job is to drag the rest of the redneck morons toward the light. They don't understand that the so-called redneck morons, the people they don't like, are the people that grew up with values, patriotism, all those things. And they hate all those words. I built Fox news on my own life experience - I built it understanding the pressures and the worries and the aspirations of average Americans.feedback

Betsy West

The creation of Fox News was a sea change. [By] staking out Fox News as a media outlet attuned to the voices of the political right – including the far right – he really set the stage for our current politicized media landscape. That talk show mentality where you really want to create controversy, where you want to create energy, where you want it to be entertaining – like when he worked on 'The Mike Douglas Show' – you can see it when Fox News debuted. It had a different rhythm to it than CNN.feedback

Rupert Murdoch - News Corporation

Roger Ailes has made a remarkable contribution to our company and our country. Roger shared my vision of a great and independent television organization and executed it brilliantly over 20 great years. Fox News has given voice to those who were ignored by the traditional networks and has been one of the great commercial success stories of modern media.feedback

Rupert Murdoch - News Corporation

Everybody at Fox News is shocked and grieved by the death of Roger Ailes. A brilliant broadcaster, Roger played a huge role in shaping America's media over the last thirty years. He will be remembered by the many people on both sides of the camera that he discovered, nurtured and promoted. Roger and I shared a big idea which he executed in a way no one else could have. In addition, Roger was a great patriot who never ceased fighting for his beliefs.feedback

David Axelrod

For better or worse & the ignominious end 2 his reign at Fox News, the impact of Roger Ailes on American politics & media was indisputable.feedback

Douglas Wigdor

The sudden passing of Roger Ailes will make it difficult for Fox News to refute the allegations against him as his testimony was not secured by sworn testimony to date. For example, our client Lidija Ujkic claims in her complaint pending in the Southern District that Mr. Ailes made the following comments: . . .asking Ms. Ujkic to stand up and turn around so he could see her from behind and commenting that he liked what he saw; and. . .calling her ex-boyfriend and asking whether she 'put out' and 'how's the sex.feedback

Ross Barkan

A large chunk of the people who elected Trump still want him around. Just as importantly, the media they consume hasn’t given up on him. To watch Fox News on Monday night or peruse rightwing outposts like Breitbart and the Drudge Report was to find an America that will always be to Donald Trump’s liking. “Deep State Strikes,” blared Breitbart, perhaps Trump’s most ardent media defender. “Leaks Classified Info to Washington Post to Smear Trump.”.feedback

Lisa Bloom

They are clearly not fit and proper, if those words have meaning ... Nobody has given me an argument that they are fit and proper, by the way. What I have gotten in response is that that they are a very big company and the Murdochs are billionaires. Well, that has nothing to do with it.feedback

Lisa Bloom

When they thought they could get away with it, they kept him, and they paid women off to silence them. The same is true for Roger Ailes. It's only because Gretchen Carlson [a former Fox anchor who alleged Ailes harassed her], a very brave woman, publicly shamed him that he was brought down. Didn't our grandmothers teach us that the measure of character is how we behave when no one is looking?feedback

Lisa Bloom

I hate to break it to you. Unfortunately, I don't think we are going to age out of this problem, . People are far less accepting today of this kind of behaviour. If we get to a jury, we are going to do very well. Most companies, when you call them out on bad behaviour, are going to want to negotiate with us and give my client a good settlement and rectify the situation. Attitudes have changed, but there is still a great deal of work that needs to be done. The parent company may be called 21st Century Fox, but they behave more like 19th Century Fox.feedback

Lisa Bloom

The UK has been a world leader on women's rights. I think when the UK has a choice to make between women's equality and corporate greed, they are going to stand with women's equality and say this company is not fit and proper to expand its interests in the UK.feedback

Lisa Bloom

This is a company that over and over again, when no one was watching them, made choices against women's rights. They made choices to stand with the perpetrators of sexual harassment. This is a company that has flouted the law when it comes to women's rights in the workplace, and I think there should be consequences for that. It's important to teach this company a lesson that other companies will then see.feedback

David Yelland

It's a cultural crossroads for the company. He's a very difficult editor but a very brilliant, talented editor. It will have been very difficult for Rupert Murdoch.feedback

Lisa Bloom

It's phone hacking part two. As with phone hacking in the UK, this Murdoch-owned company has stood by senior staff they knew had acted illegally or immorally. By my count, Fox News currently faces lawsuits filed by 19 different employees alleging sexual and racial harassment and retaliation.feedback

Douglas Wigdor

I told Ofcom that the only way for them to get the full truth of what the Murdoch media has done to its victims is for the company to remove the choke-hold clauses that bind victims to silence. These are Fox's 'hidden figures' – talented, brave people who fought for their rights but were threatened, bullied and permanently gagged … When you have a company that acts more like 18th Century Fox rather than 21st Century Fox by breaking the laws against discrimination, harassment and retaliation, you have to ask yourself, is this the sort of company that you want controlling Sky Plc?feedback

Johan Hufnagel

We don't have a Fox News in France. There's no broadcaster with a wide audience and personalities who build this up and try to use it for their own agendas. French voters didn't want to get into that game. They were mentally prepared after Trump and Brexit and the Russians, even if it's not clear they're behind it.feedback

Nancy Erika Smith

The issues raised in Diana Falzone's lawsuit are a concern for all women. Fox News never banned her male counterparts who have discussed their personal health issues on air. Indeed, those men saw their careers advance.feedback

Michael Wolff

All those ratings happened because [of] O'Reilly at 8 o'clock. You just have a fall off of his audience across the night. ... Now you start with a lower baseline. We are just left with a network that has a significant penetration but no reason for people now to really watch it.feedback

Michael Wolff

Fox is finished. Fox that we have known for 20 years is over. All that chemistry is gone because all those people are gone. We will definitely lose Sean Hannity, if not in days in months. It is the decision the Murdoch sons wanted. They don't want it tainted by Murdoch politics and ideology. I think it's the wrong decision from a shareholders' position. This is going to cost them an enormous amount of money.feedback

Rupert Murdoch - News Corporation

James Murdoch - Fox News Channel

With respect to potentially the FCC relaxing ownership caps on terrestrial TV stations in the U.S., no, I guess is the most straightforward way to answer the question. I hate [to comment] on future speculation and hypotheticals, but I think you can rest easy there. We really like the shape of our station business right now.feedback

Reed Brody - Human Rights Watch

When recently, in an interview with Fox News, they asked Donald Trump about Russia, he replied that our country is not so innocent. If we were honest, it was a statement with a sense of reality.

If Tucker Carlson takes over the O'Reilly slot, and The Five takes over Carlson's slot – and something else fills in for The Five – there's probably a negative impact on ratings, but probably only a modest one in context of Fox News' total day.

There's vulnerability in that Fox's biggest star is gone. There will be resentment among his loyal base. What mitigates that, of course, is that Fox's success is tied to being sui generis. There is no viable alternative for people who want to have that perspective played back all through prime time. Fox News viewers are old enough to remember, Don't touch that dial. Well, if they do touch the dial, there aren't a lot of places for them to go.feedback

It's unclear, he said, whether viewers come to Fox News to watch O'Reilly and stick around to watch other programs, or vice versa.

There's a mountain of evidence that the Murdochs are not fit or proper to own Sky.

Of course Sweden isn’t perfect, but those who love to portray it as teeming with terrorists and naive towards reality, are just cynical hypocrites. There are few countries in the world that have “lost their innocence” as many times as Sweden. Even before a suspected terrorist and Isis supporter killed four and injured many more in last week’s attack in central Stockholm, Sweden’s policies were being portrayed on the programmes of Fox News and pages of the Daily Mail as, at best, exercises in well-meaning-but-naive multiculturalism, and at worst terrorist appeasement.feedback

Fox News host Bill O’Reilly is under fire based on a weekend New York Times article indicating that $13 million had been paid to five women who had received settlements after complaining about the host’s behavior. The pattern documented by these cases? “As an influential figure in the newsroom, Mr. O’Reilly would create a bond with some women by offering advice and promising to help them professionally, ” noted the newspaper. “He then would pursue sexual relationships with them, causing some to fear that if they rebuffed him, their careers would stall.”.feedback

Flacks for Fox News are going to need a spring break. Yesterday, senior judicial analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano reemerged on the network’s airwaves after getting in trouble for alleging - based on unnamed sources - that the United Kingdom assisted President Barack Obama in surveilling presidential candidate Donald Trump. “You’ve had a few quiet days, ” said host Bill Hemmer, in a clever allusion to Napolitano’s short time on the Fox News bench. After Napolitano surfaced these claims on an opinion show - the idiotic “Fox & Friends” - a representative from the network’s news side, Shepard Smith, memorably countered them on air: “Fox News cannot confirm Judge Napolitano’s commentary. Fox News knows of no evidence of any kind that the now president of the United States was surveilled at any time, in any way, full stop.” Smith was forced to issue that statement after a spokesman for the British GCHQ (Government Communications Headquarters) issued a statement thrashing the Napolitano report, which had been cited by White House press secretary Sean Spicer.feedback

Veteran network newsman Ted Koppel didn’t say “Sean Hannity is bad for America, ” though you might have gathered as much from reading various summaries of the segment from “CBS Sunday Morning” in which Koppel interviewed the Fox News host, among several others, about the country’s partisan divide. The sequence went like this.feedback

Ted Koppel

I am cynical. No, let me finish the sentence before you do that. Beginning, perhaps, from the reasonable perspective that absolute objectivity is unattainable, Fox News and MSNBC no longer even attempt it. They show us the world not as it is, but as partisans (and loyal viewers) at either end of the political spectrum would like it to be. This is to journalism what Bernie Madoff was to investment: He told his customers what they wanted to hear, and by the time they learned the truth, their money was gone.feedback

There is sense that [Fox News], Breitbart and other such media outlets played key roles in putting Trump in the White House.

There is something about the capital – a rich texture that rejects simplistic incendiary rhetoric. It’s not immune to hate, just too complex to be swayed by it. When the first news from the attack in Westminster began filtering through, I, along with many others, felt that familiar knot in our stomach – the kind one feels when braced for a predictable battle to separate fact from hysteria, plead for a sense of proportionality and entreat the hurt and the angry not to generalise. Despite being poised for the response, something felt different this time. Seemingly within minutes, former English Defence League leader Tommy Robinson was at the scene stirring hate while the shock was fresh. Nigel Farage was on the radio a few hours later, spewing predictable bile. Katie Hopkins published her usual MailOnline column, its tone sharpened to meet the high-octane moment, and was hosted on Fox News. Twitter abuse flooded towards Sadiq Khan, unleashed by Donald Trump Jr, who criticised London’s mayor hours after the attack for a perfectly reasonable and responsible claim he made six months ago that terrorist incidents were now part of the experience of living in a large city. We can only assume he singled out Khan because he was Muslim. All this happened in less than 24 hours after the attack.feedback

With a lot of pretentious talk about the “deconstruction of the administrative state” and political fantasies (tariffs that don’t provoke retaliation, for example), Stephen K.

Murdoch and the Murdoch press is, for the moment and probably forever, hugely weakened as a political force. Can you imagine the next election and politicians lining up to say 'please can I be endorsed by the Sun as the next prime minister'?feedback

Ivan Lewis

The appointment of the judge today is absolutely crucial.feedback

Rupert Murdoch - News Corporation

All I can do is apologise to a lot of people, including all the innocent people at News of the World who lost their jobs.feedback

Tony Blair

Am I saying he's not a powerful figure in the media? Well no, of course he is, and, of course you're aware of what his views are, and that's why I say part of my job was to manage the situation so that you didn't get into a situation where you were shifting policy.feedback

We've measured epigenetic marks of the twins within the identical twins at birth and we've measured the levels of gene activity that these epigenetic markers govern and we found that they can be quite different at birth. So, most of those differences must have accumulated while these twins were in the womb. Some of our so-called identical twins with the same DNA, their mothers don't believe their identical because they can look so different.feedback

Richard Saffery

We've just recently shown for the first time that a change in epigenetic profile translates to a change in gene expression and we all know that changes in gene expression underpins all human disease, so it's potentially quite profound.feedback

David Cameron

In the end the management of the company must be a matter for the shareholders of that company, but the government wants to see this sorted out.feedback

David Cameron

Clearly James Murdoch has got questions to answer in Parliament and I'm sure he will do that. And clearly News International has got some big issues to deal with and a mess to clear up, that has to be done by the management of that company.feedback

Tom Watson

If their statement is accurate it shows James Murdoch had knowledge that others were involved in hacking as early as 2008, it shows he failed to act to discipline staff or initiate an internal investigation, which undermines Rupert Murdoch's evidence to our committee that the company had a zero tolerance to wrongdoing.feedback

Tom Watson

There is only going to be one person who is accurate. Either James Murdoch, who to be fair to him is standing by his version of events, or Colin Myler and Tom Crone.feedback

Harriet Harman

He should not have given the decision to Mr Hunt in the first place as he was clearly biased.feedback

Ali Sheikholeslami

The News Corporation's takeover bid of BSkyB is buried. It is a massive setback for Rupert Murdoch's media empire, but campaigners here in Downing Street will not be happy until they have seen results of a thorough inquiry into unethical practices in British journalism. It's a bad day for News Corporation, but worse days could be ahead.feedback

David Cameron

I think this is the right decision, but also the right decision for the country too. But we now have got to get on with the work of the police investigation and the public inquiry that I've set up today.feedback

Jay Rockefeller

I am concerned that the admitted phone hacking in London by the News Corp. may have extended to 9/11 victims or other Americans. If they did, the consequences would be severe.feedback

Chase Carey - News Corporation

It has become clear that it is too difficult to progress in this climate. News Corp remains a committed long-term shareholder in BSkyB.feedback

David Cameron

What we are talking about here is the relationships that Conservative politicians and, frankly, Labour politicians have had over the last 20 years with News Corporation, News International and all the rest of it. To be fair to the Liberal Democrats, they didn't have that relationship and their abstention tonight is to make that point. And I understand that, it's politics.feedback

Nick Clegg

I think, of course, there are big question marks about how News Corporation is being run. Why is it that people higher up the food chain have not taken accountability for what is emerging as an industrial-scale scandal in the way in which its newspapers were being run.feedback
