Former Fox executive trashes ‘bile-filled’ Fox News Channel in blistering op-ed

Like other cable news networks, Fox News has experienced a decline in its ratings since former President Donald Trump departed the White House.

But according to Mediaite, the right-leaning cable network has a new battle on its hands after Preston Padden, a former Fox executive, held nothing back in an op-ed for the Daily Beast in which he trashed Fox News, describing it as a “bile-filled network,” even going as far as accusing the network of being complicit in the Jan. 6 Capitol riot. 

Padden, who worked under billionaire Fox News Channel owner Rupert Murdoch for seven years until he left to work for ABC in 1997, followed by a two-decade stint at Disney. In his op-ed, he praised his former boss, even giving Murdoch kudos for launching one of the most successful cable news networks in television history.

“I worked closely with Rupert and I found him to be brilliant, courageous, optimistic, and a gentleman,” Padden said.

But that’s where the niceties came to a halt. Padden, in his op-ed, wrote that he believes not even Murdoch himself believes what comes out of the “bile-filled” cable network, adding that he believes Fox News began as a “truthful, center-right news network.”

“I don’t believe that most of the falsehoods on Fox News reflect Rupert Murdoch’s own views,” Padden wrote. “I believe that he thought that it was important to protect his own health by wearing a mask during the pandemic and he encouraged me to do the same.”

Padden went on to express his belief that Murdoch, at least behind the scenes, wasn’t the biggest fan of the former president, writing that Murdoch “thinks that former President Trump is an egomaniac who lost the election by turning off voters, especially suburban women, with his behavior.”

The former Fox executive went on to blame some of Fox News’ primetime hosts, which include names like Tucker Carlson and Sean Hannity, for playing a role in the deadly events that transpired at the nation’s capital on Jan. 6.

Padden also accused Fox News of the “unnecessary deaths of many Americans by disparaging the wearing of life-saving COVID masks.”

In other words, this guy is given a ‘microphone’ with which he tells anyone who will listen that he is a globalist and doesn’t want to miss that gravy train.

From the big perspective God has pulled back and is letting the wheat and the chaff declare who themselves.

Tucker and Hannity are #1 and 2 as to cable news shows and this guy is who? Oh yeah, filled with bile.

Preston Padden is promulgating the hard left views of his employers. What a surprise! That he once worked for Fox News is coincidence. Now Padden is required to posture and promote the radical “progressive” views of his biased media employers or be bounced out of the club.

He left Fox news 23 years ago and infected ABC and denigrates his primary competition by saying 90 year old Rupert is medically proficient and knows what is needed.

Another media enemy of the state, all around American hater & evil lunatic that will do anything to destroy us, our constitution and our country! Criminally insane lunatics like this must be punished for their misdeeds and continued destruction if our country!! May God give us the strength to rid ourselves of such vile filth as this monster!! He makes Ted Bundy look like mickey mouse!! Fox News is presently digging it’s own grave and if evil leftwing criminals are allowed to continue to lie on Fox News 24/7 the coffin will eventually be nailed shut and buried for good! The only people keeping them afloat are honest people like Tucker & Sean and a few others!!
