Ex-Exec Resigned Over Fox's 'Relationship With Facts'

By    |   Sunday, 07 April 2019 02:49 PM

A former Newscorp executive resigned in 2017 over what he considered a "significant change in tone" and a "significant shift in the relationship with facts, particularly on the Fox side."

"I hadn't been exposed, for a long time to a lot of what was going on on the opinion side, but beyond that I noticed a significant change in tone," former Newscorp senior vice president Joseph Azam told CNN's "Reliable Sources." 

"I'm a big believer in the marketplace of ideas, and I was fine working with and for people who had very different values and opinions than I did, but I noticed a significant shift in the ferociousness, and frankly, in the relationship with facts, particularly on the Fox side."

The "run up to the election" is when Azam noticed a change in tone and rhetoric that he said made him uncomfortable and "was exposed to it every day."

"It became very profitable to kind of fall in line with some of the anti-immigrant, anti-refugee, anti-Semitic, anti-Muslim rhetoric, and I was affected by that," Azam said.
