Elizabeth Holmes will start 11-year prison sentence on May 30 after losing her bid to remain free
"Disgraced theranos CEO Elizabeth Holmes loses her bid to avoid prison and gets it with a $452 million restitution Bill. 39 year old Elizabeth Holmes had been sentenced to 11 years in prison after her conviction in a blood testing hoax and appeals court Tuesday rejected her bid to remain free while she tries to overturn it in another ruling she and a previous partner who was also convicted were ordered to compensate the victims of their crimes. Holmes was 19 when she founded her company and raised nearly a $1 billion from investors including Oracle cofounder Larry Ellison and media mogul Rupert Murdoch, who all lost their money after flaws in theranos technology
Latest Episode of 'Succession' Triggers Left-Wing Meltdown
"No spoilers, but I did last night's last night's Succession. And the shell, the theme of this show, is and you brought it up a lot that it sort of emblematic of the Murdochs and it's kind of like Fox, et cetera. And I have a kind of held that at arm's length. I said, it's just sort of seemed like rich, powerful family. I don't know how much of its appeal is the similarities to Fox. But last night, in a fictitious election night show, it was all about the drama of 2020 and Fox calling or not calling. It was what a conservative supposedly conservative network does on a controversial election night. It was a fantastic episode. Do you want to give too much away? Because people stream it in increments and a lot of people didn't watch it last night like you and I did. It was a tremendous episode. Some of the best TV on TV, but last night, the left was melting down their reaction was that the episode gave them PTSD from 2020. It triggered them. It made them very upset because it was shades of the 2020 election, and it was awful to relive it. And I still, I'm still shaking. Because I go to social media, I'm such a fan of a fanboy of this show that I'll go on to Twitter afterwards to see comments and people are posted all kinds of stuff. And people are generally careful not to give away too much, but yeah, they were not happy with it in ways that because it triggered them from 2020, which is just hysterical. And
Trump Lashes Out at Murdoch, Fox News and More
"Are you ready for a crazy 9 months or what? I mean, this primary is getting out of control and it really hasn't even begun yet. Let me read you a truth from president Donald Trump. Rupert Murdoch, worst Republican speaker ever Paul Ryan, rhino Karl rove, the Wall Street globalist journal in the rapidly disintegrating Fox News have gone all out over the last three months pushing and promoting wrong to sanctimonious. A man who without the help and endorsement of president Donald J Trump, he's speaking of himself in the third. Would now be working at McDonald's or at a minimum be far away from Tallahassee anyway, all of this rhino globalist push from election undeniable Murdoch has crushed to sanctus in the polls. Darren, we're talking about media. He went straight after Murdoch and the Murdoch empire. He went after Karl rove, Paul Ryan, who's on the board at Fox, any called Ron DeSantis to sanctimonious and desantis. All in one truth. I mean, this is getting, it's getting intense. How is this going to play out? Outline for our viewers the next 9 months. Well, you know, I think we have a little preview, but desantis has an announced yet. I think once he announces, then it's really going to be on and really going to be interesting. But we have a little preview of that. And I think as I've said before, I think things could be very difficult for desantis. I think he's been led astray. I think the advice of his counselors or whoever they are told him to run in this cycle was profoundly ill advised. I've said repeatedly that he should just wait it out and
The Murdochs' Plan to Silence Tucker Carlson Revealed
"Us is Matt Boyle from breitbart dot com. Matt, how you doing? Doing great, Charlie. How are you, sir? I'm glad to be here. Thank you. You're the Washington bureau chief for the wonderful website breitbart dot com. So Matt, let's talk your top line thoughts, your analysis on the Tucker story. What do you think we're missing that is the most important part of the story? Well, look, it appears as though the Murdoch family is trying to silence Tucker Carlson, the Fox News board, which includes Lachlan James and Rupert Murdoch as well as Paul Ryan, the former Speaker of the House, various establishment Republican. They want to silence Tucker through the 2024 election. Tucker Carlson has a is currently under he's not been fired from Fox News. Everybody's saying these fire, they're just wrong. He's been his show has been canceled, but he's still under contract. He's not allowed to go out there and negotiate something new or go to somebody new until such time as the Murdoch's and Paul Ryan, the Fox board, allow him out of his contract. His contract runs through December 2024 right now. So they are trying to silence him and what's really going on here is that, you know, we see these weaponized leaks by Fox staff arena burgundy, who is the head of corporate communications for Fox News, has been weaponizing text messages, videos, all sorts of different stuff to different places to try to tarnish Tucker's reputation. That's backfiring on them. I think people are turning away from Fox. They're turning two places like breitbart and other conservative validation places like your show. Other conservative media outlets that are seeing a huge spike in attention because people are turning off Fox News, which is an honorable thing. But ultimately, what's happening here is that the Murdochs are trying to retake control of their network. And
Floyd Brown Fights Back Against the Evil January 6 Narrative
"Let's welcome back talking to Floyd Brown, the book is counter punch. And unlikely alliance of Americans fighting back for faith and freedom. So Floyd, you were just talking about the January 6th narrative. And I can't get it through my head. How a lot of people that we thought were on our side, some people who were friends of mine still believe the lie, the fake narrative of January 6th, they're not doing a darn thing to help people languishing in D.C. jails. This is as evil as it gets in the United States of America. This was pushed by many Republicans, even some really good Republicans like Ted Cruz, you know, kind of gave lip service to it like, oh yeah, it was terrible things happened. Show me the terrible things. What are you talking about? This nonsense, if this is, in case anybody has read my von off for book, this is the Reichstag fire. This is a government taking advantage of a chaotic situation to demonize their enemies in a way that had never been done in the history of the United States before. So please continue. No, you're absolutely right. And as I was saying, the morning after Tucker showed just a little bit of that January 6 footage. And so we have to realize there are facts and then there are fake facts. And for the last few years, since January 6th, we have gotten nothing but the fake facts. And so Tucker finally was going to show us some of the real facts and what happened. The next morning, you expect Chuck Schumer to go to the well of the Senate and denounce Tucker Carlson. And that lovely nasal voice he has denounced the evils of Rupert Murdoch, but right after him was Mitch McConnell, who did the same thing. And then they were followed by a group of Republican senators, all spouting the same thing, this completely false narrative. And it's as if they don't understand what was going on.
The Real Reason for Tucker Carlson’s Abrupt Departure From Fox
"The real reason for Tucker Carlson's abrupt departure from Fox remains a little unclear and there's a bunch of different hypotheses or theories circulating you saw one that was actually well here, the article, this one is well, I mean, can we really trust it? I think it's from The Guardian. The Guardian in Britain. What does it say? Well, it says that Tucker Carlson's vulgar language in texts contributed to fox's firing of him. And what's the vulgar language and who was he referring to? So apparently he was referring to Sidney Powell and some of it. He also referred to Murdock and other parts of it. So, and apparently he was just a very mean guy is what they were saying. Well, I can see if he made that disparaging comments about Rupert Murdoch at this if it got back to Murdoch, Murdoch would be upset. I'm his boss. That kind of thing, I mean, it seems pretty clear that Tucker is a little bit of an early guy. And I say this because in fact, you made this point to me that when Justin B wells sent me very insulting text, this was in the immediate aftermath of 2000 meals. He was speaking in this kind of vulgar, brutish language, and I said to Debbie, I'm like, do you think that Tucker's producer would do this on his own? And she's like, well, it probably Tucker talks like that. So this is like the, this is the talk around the office, and there's a woman named Abby grossberg, who's apparently suing Tucker, claiming that there was all this very vulgar sexist talk going on in the office. Who knows? I mean, I have seen an article as a completely different theory that has nothing to do with any of this. And actually says that it's Tucker's Christianity. And by Christianity, what I mean is not tacos personal devoutness or anything like that. But Tucker gave a speech at heritage right before he got fired. And he basically said this isn't just a political fight. He goes, this is a spiritual war. And the other side isn't just wrong. They're basically like on the devil's side. They're evil. As we've said, yes, exactly.
Guest Host Kash Patel Welcomes Breitbart's Matt Boyle to the Show
"With our guest host, former chief of staff of The Pentagon, cash Patel. Well, that's quite the lead in and especially if you guys could hear the pump up music that's going on. You almost want to jump into a UFC cage fight. And I thought for charity, we'd have a UFC cage fight with me and my next guest. My dear friend, Matt Boyle, the genius at Breitbart News. Matt, I have never done this before literally ever. Usually, I'm getting interrogated, which I probably enjoy more since I know what I'm doing. But thanks for coming on the show. And popping my radio cherry. Yeah, no cash. It's great to be here and I'm glad you're doing this because frankly, I think this has been a long time coming and you're going to eventually be a great radio presence and maybe even a television presence on the road. So this is just the beginning of something great. Thanks so much. I wanted to start with sort of like a macro level look. You are one of the most voracious consumers and producers of accurate reporting in journalism that there exists. Whether it's geopolitics or sports or anything. For the everyday American, as we enter a presidential election cycle, who doesn't have the time to do that, to read through everything, and to get the accurate reporting. What would you say to them are like the two to three things they should follow over the next year, whether it's for Trump or for Biden or who have you to help them make that decision in terms of journalism. Well, look, I mean, obviously, I would say breitbart because I run our team of political reporters and I write a lot myself, but also help guide our younger folks and folks on their reporting. But beyond breitbart, I mean, I would have said Tucker Carlson. But I guess the Murdochs got tired of the edginess and they'd rather go back to bullying milk toast in this on Fox News. I want to say talker in probably today. Dodger G show here that we're on right now. I probably did
Rupert Murdoch Didn't Like Tucker Carlson's Spiritual Talk
"Now there's public reporting that Rupert Murdoch did not like the spiritual talk of Tucker Carlson. With Tucker just said there was a spiritual argument, and let me build it out for you. Tucker is a learned man. And Tucker knows when he says the iron law of the universe, what is he saying there? He's talking about the logos. The logos is an idea that is in John one in the beginning was the word, and the word was God. And the word became flesh. The logos is the harmony of the universe. The logos is the idea that there is a natural law. What Tucker is making here is a spiritual argument that would bother the head of Fox Rupert Murdoch. I don't like all that spiritual talk. What Tucker is saying here is that they become weaker, the iron law of the universe is true things prevail. That is Christianity, believing that truth prevails ultimately, that there is a truth that there is a telos that there's an order to the cosmos. And that's what he's saying. Not so subtly. He's saying that, look, those of us who speak truth. And he says that, as long as you can hear the words, there is hope. As long as you have the spoken word, the spoken truth, which is the logos, there is hope. When he starts with the issue, why he was removed, he's giving you a little bit of a preview that not only is he not going away, not only is he not going to disappear, but he's going to be more convicted than ever to speak truth. If the heads of Fox did not like the spiritual talk, what he's saying right there, you guys are liars, the whole regime that removed me is liars and the iron law of the universe, which is the logos. And Christianity is that true things prevail.
Who Could Replace Tucker Carlson on Fox?
"News is going to have a little bit of a problem here because they've got to kind of make sure that the viewers don't totally desert them. I mean, you look at the ratings from the other night and MSNBC is doing pretty well newsmax is doing pretty well. There's a lot of places to go as we know in the splintered media environment where you can come directly to a personality straight to a personality straight here to Trish Regan, for example, or should Tucker decide to do his own thing. And I think he'd be smart to do so. You'll be able to go directly to him. So there's a whole new opportunity for you as a consumer. And I think younger people certainly get this. And older people are starting to get it as well. But let's just say, I were running things at Fox News right now, first of all, it never would have gotten to this, but if I were suddenly in charge, who would I put in? Who would you put in for that matter? Send us a comment. Let us know who your first choice would be as a host for the show. We've been assembling names because by the way, some of you have already been saying this, Brian kilmeade, of course, stepped in for Tucker, tough spot to be in. I think for him, you know, the first night and everything. But he's well regarded at the network. So Brian kilmeade, he's on the list. Jesse watters. Jesse watters came up as a producer under Bill O'Reilly. He used to do waters world or he'd go out and ask these crazy questions and kind of basic stuff actually like basic civics. Who did America fight in the Revolutionary War? The French? He's very much a conservative. And so he's somebody who could step into the slot. Piers Morgan is over there. He's part of the whole Fox system right now. He's very, very liked by the Murdoch family. Certainly by Rupert Murdoch, appears to it. He's got a British accent, so I don't know how that goes down. Can I say that? You're being agent. I'm just saying. If that's a fact. It's a long time ago. But hey, you know what, Steve Hilton, he's on the weekend. He's got a British accent. Maybe it works. Mark Stein, he's got an accent. I think some kind of Canadian accent, but he used to fill in a lot for Tucker. And he's kind of eccentric and he's got neat ideas. So he's another possible contender. I'm going to throw Candace Owens in there because we don't have a woman. Women. Nobody's mentioned a woman and I don't know how deep the bench really is for conservative women over there. They've got Laura Ingraham who does a great job. And then you got, I'm just going to put his name in the ring because he is a guest on the show today. You got a guy named Vivek Rama Swami, who's
Did Rush Limbaugh Have Lawmakers Calling to Deplatform Him?
"So you look at these quotes here, Chuck Schumer, we have a right to tell Rupert Murdoch and Fox what to do. We not only have a right, but on obligation and obligation to the boss around the press in America, have we ever seen, I want someone to tell me if this has ever happened in American history. Post the advent and the proliferation of radio, they went after rush really hard, but did rush have lawmakers? Calling for him to be taken off. I remember after the Sandra fluck thing, the Sandra fluke thing. There was a lot of backlash against rush and it didn't work. But for example, AOC deplatforming works and its important New Jersey representative Bill pascrell, quote this program was a sewer of countless lies and hate spewed on every single night. One of the leading election deniers and opponents of democracy in America and abroad will no longer have a prime time platform that's a good thing. Side note, there's a series of projects I want to do. I got nothing but projects. I would love to do that and we're going to do the question of what is racism. I would love to go up to lawmakers and ask them, hey, what is democracy? Can you define it? It seems that everything is democracy, mutilating kids as democracy, mail in ballots as democracy, open borders as democracy, censoring Tucker is democracy.
Is Tucker's Departure From Fox News a Win or a Loss?
"The question is, is tacos departure from Fox really for our side, a win or a loss? Now, I don't want to be one of these people who go Tucker's free, Tucker can say whatever he wants. It's a big win. There are people who are acting as if this is an unmitigated victory. But no, I think it's quite obvious that Fox is an important cable channel. It's certainly got ratings that far exceed CNN or MSNBC, Tucker was the most prominent cable host in the country. And he was presenting ideas who couldn't get anywhere else. And we don't have Fox as a forum to present those ideas anymore. So that is a negative. I don't see how you can see it any other way. I often talk about the fact that there are older guys who are not active on social media who aren't following my podcast on rumble. They might be fans of mine, but by and large they a way of consuming news is leaving the Fox News channel on for much, if not all of the day. And these are the guys who get or used to get Tucker. So now are they going to pivot and look for one America news or newsmax or are they going to start foraging social media? Perhaps, but perhaps not. And so that's the downside. Now, here is a potential upside and I get this actually from a Twitter chain from my friend Larry Alex taunt and whom I've had on the podcast before. And he goes, you know, Tucker under the Murdoch regime was a guy with a little bit of a chain around him, not that he had no latitude, but he had latitude to move within a certain confined space. And he gives Larry gives two examples. He goes, number one, Tucker puts out a couple of clips from January 6th, and then zip no more. His other example, 2000 meals. He gave no coverage to 2000 meals. He goes, maybe he didn't want to, but Larry goes, nah, he probably did. He probably would have. He knew that this was in the news. It was something he should cover, but he got pressure from above.
John Zmirak: Fox News Became Our Enemy on Election Night 2020
"Be clear. Fox News became our enemy election night 2020. When they called the race for Biden in Arizona, any of the left wing media were willing to do it. And when they smacked down all the legitimate evidence of election fraud, when they became, in a sense, collaborators with the regime. When they became the firemen to put out whatever fires of truth started erupting, Fox News would be there to squelch them. And Tucker Carlson was like a lonely leftover like the last bastion of truth and sanity on Fox News. And sometimes, you know, I'd be watching Tucker and it would segue way into Sean Hannity. It would segue into something else. And so you ended up watching garbage programs because they were on the same channel as Tucker. Now there is no reason there is no excuse to ever, ever, under any circumstances, watch Fox News. You should watch MSNBC before you watch Fox News after they did this. Then doing this is like the CIA coming into a country and an arranging a coup d'etat. And you know where the limits of acceptable descent are. This is the regime saying, no more. No, we will not have dissidents. These students not publish no socialist and goes to gulag. This is a sign that they think they're going to get away with it. Fox News thinks it's going to continue to be the squishy pseudo conservative alternative. Well, show something with Kevin Costner. Oh, will occasionally get Roseanne Barr. We'll throw you pitiful little scraps of me through the bars of yourself. And you will be grateful for it. You will be grateful you will thank the guards for throwing you a couple of extra fish heads in your fish head soup. If Rupert Murdoch wants to destroy Fox News, I am happy to help him do so.
Did Abby Grossberg's Lawsuit Play a Role in Tucker's Fox Exit?
"Else, though, going on, meanwhile, Maria bartiromo, wonderful, wonderful woman. I worked with her both at CNBC. And then, of course, at Fox. Maria bartiromo had a producer named Abby grosberg and Abby, then later went over to work on Tucker Carlson's show, and Abby sued as this dominion thing unfolded, alleging that there was a ton of discrimination that there was a ton of sort of harassment, the environment that she was working in was highly problematic on Tucker Carlson's show. So in that discovery process, you wonder if more things came out. I mean, we know already. You've seen some of the texts that went back and forth. Tucker didn't seem to have a whole lot of faith in management, and he was complaining that management was so bad that we're going to take the whole place down because they didn't really understand where the viewer was at, et cetera, et cetera. One wonders if more stuff came out in that discovery process for this other lawsuit that might have just been enough for the Murdochs to say, okay, we really don't want this guy here anymore. Not only do we want not want him, we don't want his producer, Justin wells. So they sent both of them packing. It's honestly just shocking. And I think it's unfortunate because it didn't need to get to this.
Report: Fox News-Tucker Carlson Split Was Not Mutual
"Are beginning to get a lot more information about how all of this went down yesterday. Now originally, we were told this was a mutual thing, but now we understand that was far from the case that Tucker was actually fired and had no idea that this was coming down the pike. That's the information we are getting. But again, this is very interesting to see how all of this played out. Remember, by the way, Rupert Murdoch, the guy had a fiance, her name was Anne Lesley Smith, they called off the engagement. He called off the engagement after she told Rupert that she believed Tucker Carlson is a messenger from God. And that's when he called off the wedding. Yep, that's it. We're done here. We're done here. But anyway, Vanity Fair reporting that Tucker was in the middle of negotiating a new 5 year contract, and he was making tens of millions of dollars, so he was doing very, very well. The issue now is, is Fox News actually in danger is it possible that Rupert and Lachlan are trying to sell Fox News channel and they had to get rid of Tucker to make it somewhat more appealing for somebody coming in and buying the network.
Why Was Tucker Taken Out? With Steve Bannon
"Is with us, Steve. Welcome to the program, Steve, if you have some strong thoughts on Tucker Carlson's departure from Fox News, let it rip. Yeah, Charlie, I think it's pretty obvious. I mean, The Wall Street Journal is owned by the Murdochs, it kind of been leaking pieces of this into separate stories in The New York Times. Also, I mean, Tucker is under contract. I think he's the highest paid by far person, not just at Fox, but in all mainstream cable news. And he was negotiating his agents and lawyers were negotiating an extension of his contract through 2029. When this happens, put that opinion in that, he was negotiating extension of this massive contract. I think it's pretty clear, particularly the way they did it and showed no respect to him. They blew him out, but remember the way these cable contracts are written as a personality. The last thing they want to allow you to do is go be to go to a competitor. So the way these contracts are written is they can take you off air. Staying in a sense essentially, we parted ways. But as long as they meet the terms of the contract and paying you in my understanding, these Tucker's deal is not 10 million. That was his old deal. His new deal is 20 million per year. As long as they pay Tucker and I think this contract and what I'm told runs a couple of years, they've taken him off what the Murdochs have done is taken the populist voice, the anti Ukraine voice, the anti unit party voice, the really the platform and mainstream media and prime time to only voice out there. A populist nationalism, right? Is like getting war room and Charlie Kirk roll up into one in one hour on a mainstream platform. They've taken it off through the 2024 election, which as I've said from day one is what the Murdoch's plan here is. I think what they're going to do is look, we'll see them in a couple days is that they're going to tell Tucker. We're going to force the contract. We're going to play you $20 million, but you can go do what you want to do. Start a new network, start a new show, start a podcast. It took us to do anything right now. Obviously.
Theories Swirl Around Tucker Carlson's Sudden Fox Departure
"Continuing my discussion of taka Carlson and his sudden and somewhat shocking departure from Fox. Well, a theory about this is that Tucker is being sued apparently being sued by somebody for creating a hostile work environment, the accusations seem kind of vague. Mostly it seems to be the fact that taco just kind of rounded up his staff and subjected them to various red pilling exercises and this was supposedly very disturbing to this individual. In any event, it's hard for me to believe that that is in fact the real explanation. True, it's coming on the heels of the dominion settlement, but unless there's something far more to all this than we know. That seems to me to be a dubious explanation. Another explanation that's been reported in a merely passing this along is the idea that Tucker was angered Rupert Murdoch by going down the January 6th road. Now, if this is true, and if either a Rupert Murdoch or the Murdoch family was upset about this, that shows that foxes in serious trouble. Why? Because they're taking mainstream topics of genuine public interest and certainly of intense interest on the right topics like election fraud, what really happened in 2020. What happened in 2022 and say Arizona. The continuing tragic plight of the January 6th defendants, the real abuses of judicial process and procedure, the corruption of judges, the ruthlessness of the prosecution, penalties, out of proportion to the offenses, solitary confinement for months, in some cases, years before trial, all of this is going on. It's an outrage, it is of deep concern to many Republicans and conservatives, and if the Murdochs are like, well, this isn't going to be off limits at Fox. Well, that's going to be very bad, that's a very bad comment on Fox itself.
Was Firing Tucker Carlson Part of the Dominion Settlement?
"It's going to impact the political world. It's impacting the American people. Tucker Carlson was by far and away the most popular broadcaster on cable news by a million miles. No one came close to him. The left is ecstatic over Fox News firing Tucker. There's lots of reporting going on about what was behind it. Did it have something to do with the dominion lawsuit, the dominion smart voting systems lawsuit against Fox News where Fox had to come up with about $787 million to make the lawsuit go away. A lot of people are speculating that perhaps Fox News entered into a sort of a gentleman's agreement with dominion will give you the money if you'll leave us alone and we'll give you Tucker Carlson's head on a platter. Maybe that was part of it. A lot of reporting suggests that the text messages that emerged from Tucker's private phone, his private text messages did him in, that Rupert Murdoch and Suzanne Scott, the woman who runs Fox News in New York, they were fed up with the way he sort of trash talked to bosses. But at the end of the day, millions of Americans are stunned. That a guy who seemed to be pretty invincible would be unceremoniously canned the way he was. And clearly he didn't see it coming, Friday night. He signed off as usual, said I'll see you Monday, Monday morning came the big announcement that Tucker Carlson was fired.
Dick Morris Reveals the Looming Threat to ALL Fox News Hosts
"News on the airplane show. The idea that there is breaking news on the aircraft show is itself breaking news, because we don't do breaking news. But today, just now, as dick Morris entered the studio, he told me the shocking news that Tucker Carlson was fired from Fox News and I thought, dick, let's get on the air immediately and discuss this. So you just mentioned that there it's not just that Tucker has been fired, but there's the threat to I would assume Sean Hannity and Laura Ingraham most prominently that if they don't play ball, they will be fired or is it already too late that they will be fired? I'm not going to mention names to get into that. They did, I believe, fire at Dobbs, Lou Dobbs, and there has been speculation about various other Fox figures. But no, no, Lou Dobbs was fired way back. And it was despicable, but I don't want to get into who might be fired or might not. But I do. Go ahead, go ahead. This represents a deliberate turn to the left on Murdoch's part. And the important point here is for the elections. Trump now has the only conservative news network that is backing Trump that really now has a monopoly on that franchise is now newsmax. I appear there all the time. So I hope this is not a conflict of interest. But I believe that this gives Trump a consistency on the right and the ability to access all of the networks on the right. It gives viewers a clear choice whether the establishment be it CNBC, CNN, or Fox News, or a conservative outlet newsmax. And I think that that's an enormous advantage for Trump.
"murdoch" Discussed on Bloomberg Radio New York
"Before offering a firm opinion, but my initial reaction is that I don't think the claim is that strong. It is true that prosecutors can not comment on a defendant's silence when the defendant elects not to testify at trial, or if a defendant elects to remain silent upon arrest. But the situation is different when a defendant tells a lie before any arrest has occurred and maintains that lie repeatedly for a period of time before any arrest. And of course allow prosecutors morally to use statements to impeach and also give prosecutors considerably more leeway to use pre arrest silence. In the Murdoch case, the defendant repeatedly lied about his whereabouts on the nights of the murders, specifically denying that he had been at the kennels where the murders took place in a series of interviews with police, all of which occurred well before he was arrested. And when he was not in custody. And I believe that the prosecution referenced those lies and noted his failure to correct them primarily when they were impeaching murder once he took the stand at his trial. So I think it's likely that a court would view these to be permissible uses of pre arrest statements to impeach to the extent that the prosecution also explicitly or implicitly suggested that Murdoch should have corrected his prior statements after he was arrested. I think those comments would likely be more problematic for the prosecution and harder to defend on appeal, but I think even then murder arguably opened the door to that subject when he testified that he had attempted post his arrest to reach out to prosecutors to correct his prior statement and he's testified that they had rebuffed his efforts to communicate with them. The odds of getting a conviction like this overturned on appeal are pretty slim, aren't they? Yeah, I mean, it is hard to overturn a conviction based on an evidentiary ruling. As I said, it's going to be subject to harmless error review and also abusive discretion review in terms of whether or not it actually was error. I do think in the context of this case, it was necessary for the government to provide some evidence that established motive, even if it was not a perfect motive or didn't fully explain the defendant's conduct, I think the question will be insignificant part of that how much evidence was admitted to establish this motive. In other words, there were quite a few witnesses that went on at considerable length and the questioning of the defendant about his financial frauds was extensive and I could see a reviewing court looking at that record and saying this was too much or more than was necessary to establish motive. But again, there is a great deal of deference to the decisions of the trial court who's closest to the fact that to the trial in making those determinations and then again there is the harmless error review as well. I'm sure it's going to be an appeal that a lot of people will be watching. Thanks so much, Jessica. That's professor Jessica Roth of cardozo law school. Coming up next, how Gruyere became just another generic cheese. I'm June Grasso in your listening to Bloomberg. Even

It is true that prosecutors can not comment on a defendant's silence when the defendant elects not to testify at trial, or if a defendant elects to remain silent upon arrest. But the situation is different when a defendant tells a lie before any arrest has occurred and maintains that lie repeatedly for a period of time before any arrest. And of course allow prosecutors more leeway to use statements to impeach and also give prosecutors considerably more leeway to use pre arrest silence. In the Murdoch case, the defendant repeatedly lied about his whereabouts on the nights of the murders, specifically denying that he had been at the kennels where the murders took place. In a series of interviews with police, all of which occurred well before he was arrested. And when he was not in custody. And I believe that the prosecution referenced those lies and noted his failure to correct them primarily when they were impeaching Murdoch once he took the stand at his trial. So I think it's likely that a court would view these to be permissible uses of pre arrest statements to impeach to the extent that the prosecution also explicitly or implicitly suggested that Murdoch should have corrected his prior statements after he was arrested. I think those comments would likely be more problematic for the prosecution and harder to defend on appeal. But I think even then myrta arguably opened the door to that subject when he testified that he had attempted post his arrest to reach out to prosecutors to correct his prior statement and he's testified that they had rebuffed his efforts to communicate with them. The odds of getting a conviction like this overturned on appeal are pretty slim, aren't they? Yeah, I mean, it is hard to overturn a conviction based on an evidentiary ruling. As I said, it's going to be subject to harmless error review and also abusive discretion review in terms of whether or not it actually was error. I do think in the context of this case, it was necessary for the government to provide some evidence that established motive, even if it was not a perfect motive or didn't fully explain the defendant's conduct. I think the question will be insignificant part about how much evidence was admitted to establish this motive. In other words, there were quite a few witnesses that went on at considerable length and a questioning of the defendant about his financial frauds was extensive and I could see a reviewing court looking at that record and saying this was too much or more than was necessary to establish motive. But again, there is a great deal of deference to the decisions of the trial court who's closest to the facts and to the trial in making those determinations and then again there is the harmless error review as well. I'm sure it's going to be an appeal that a lot of people will be watching. Thanks so much, Jessica. That's professor Jessica Roth of cardozo law school.

"Fight in a Northern California school Wednesday escalated to a stabbing that left one student dead. I'm Jennifer King. All ahead, on America in the morning. Less than three hours, that's how long it took a South Carolina jury to return a verdict in the murder trial of attorney Alex Murdoch. Correspondent Clayton Neville reports. The trial lasted 6 weeks, and after the verdict was read, judge Clifton Newman said there was overwhelming evidence to convict Alec Murdoch. A one time successful South Carolina attorney from a powerful family with a long line of local lawyers. The 54 year old on trial for the 2021 murders of his wife, Maggie, and son Paul. He showed little emotion when the verdict came down. Verdict guilty. Murdoch convicted of shooting Maggie and Paul near the dog kennels on the family's world property. Judge Newman addressed Murdoch. Mister Murdoch, you now having been found guilty of two counts of murder involving your wife and your son. Two counts of possession of a weapon during the commission of a violent crime. The burden now comes upon the court to impose a sentence. And with that, he may be taken away. Murdoch faces 30 years to life on the murder charges in 5 years on the other two counts. The judge handles the sentencing in that phase of the trial starts later today. It's a saga that's grabbed the attention of the country and had been featured in a Netflix docu series. Murdough testified last week and denied the killings but changed his story after learning he was on camera at the scene of the murders. He admitted to being hooked on pills and had been fired from his law firm for a slew of financial crimes that totaled millions of dollars, just in bamberg's the attorney for victims of those crimes and called murda liar. And I think that the jury made a very clear. We're not buying what you're selling. Murdoch's family have been linked to a bizarre string of events and alleged cover ups in recent years, including a deadly boating accident.

They did investigate and prosecute the donor in question that he was just talking about, special prosecutor, enormous, VZ was appointed by then Delaware attorney general Beau Biden, who recused himself from probing the donations, the resulting VZ report cleared the bidens of any wrongdoing, so he probably just didn't have those facts handy.

"Now, as many listeners probably know, this is all referencing these revelations from this legal battle between Fox News and dominion voting systems. Dominion currently has a $1.6 billion defamation lawsuit against Fox News for peddling election lies because, quote, the lies were good for fox's business. News said on Monday that quote dominion's lawsuit has always been more about what will generate headlines than what can withstand legal and factual scrutiny. In a recent deposition, Rupert Murdoch rejected that Fox as an entity, endorsed Trump's election lies, but did acknowledge that some of Fox News hosts did individually endorse the claims. He mentioned Sean Hannity, jeanine pirro, Maria bartiromo, and former host, Lou Dobbs. In that deposition, he said, quote, I would have liked us to be stronger in denouncing it in hindsight. The filing also revealed that Murdoch referred to some of Trump's 2020 election lies as bullshit and damaging, but he still believes fox should not be held liable for individual hosts claims and said they're on air comments have been taken out of context. Murdoch was asked why he continued to allow conspiracy theorists and MyPillow CEO Mike lindell on his heir. His answer? It is not red or blue. It is green. Now, Murdoch might have said under oath that money was directing editorial decisions. But this might have big financial costs for Fox News. Take a listen to my colleague Oliver Darcy, who has been leading the way on this story. I think we have to remember that Fox corporation is a publicly traded company. And so they have a board of directors who owe responsibility to the shareholders to make sure that there's some sort of corporate governance. And I think what you're seeing in these documents that are coming out of dominion is there's no semblance of normal corporate governance at Fox corporation, where you have people like the CEO of Fox News seemingly engaged in massive wrongdoing. Dominion's legal filing earlier this month also revealed that Fox News hosts and executives privately made fun of Trump's election lies to each other. The filing made multiple messages and emails public. The messages showed that Tucker Carlson, Sean Hannity, and Laura Ingraham, brutally mocked Trump's election lies despite Fox promoting those lies on air. It also showed Murdoch did not believe Trump's election lies and even floated the idea of having Carlson, Hannity, and Ingraham appeared together in prime time to declare Joe Biden as the rightful winner of the election. The filing also showed that there was an effort to prevent journalists from fact checking the lies at the network. On one occasion, Carlson demanded that Fox News White House correspondent Jackie Heinrich, the fired after she fact checked a Trump tweet pushing election fraud claims. Fox News argued the court filing contained cherry picked quotes lacking context. That disparity between public and private was underscored throughout the latest filing in this case. And there was another big name in Republican politics that emerged in these filings. Paul Ryan, the former House speaker. He's a board member of the Fox corporation, and court documents released this week show Ryan repeatedly warned Murdoch and his son, Fox corp CEO, Lachlan Murdoch, against quote spreading conspiracy theories, and saying the company should quote move on from Donald Trump and stop spouting election lies. Now Ryan just recently appeared on the bulwark podcast. It just came out this week, though it was recorded prior to the latest revelations from Murdoch being made public. Listen to how Ryan grapples with his role on the Fox board given he is in total opposition to sort of the Trump education of the Republican Party. Do I have disagreements with different personalities on Fox? Of course I do. It's a big tent. It's a huge conservative movement. Do I disagree with Tucker on this stuff? Of course I do. Yeah, absolutely disagree with them. We're different kinds of conservatives. I don't agree with that part. I do, I have a responsibility to offer my opinion and perspective and I do that, but I don't go out on TV and do it. So I offer my perspective in my opinion often. I'll just leave it at that. And Ryan argued on the podcast as to why he still on the board, despite disagreeing with some of what Fox News heirs. Is there a red line for you at any point where you said I can not be associated with a company that does this? I want to see the conservative movement get through this moment. And I think Fox is a big part of the constellation, the conservative movement. And I want to see the solution or the problem. Oh no, I think it's going to have to be a part of the solution if we're going to solve the problem that conservative movement because there isn't a bigger platform than this in America. So I think the conservative movement is going through a lot of churn and a lot of turmoil and I don't like where it is right now. In today's political media environment, Fox News has real power and sway inside one of America's two major political parties and given the current state of affairs, it is hard to imagine how the Republican Party moves through this moment in opposition to fox instead of fox being part of moving through this moment. Now, where Paul Ryan may find himself on the wrong side of this equation, is that his views may simply just be out of step with what the Republican Party desires and fox is not likely to be the tip of the spear. They'd rather follow what their viewers are demanding. And that becomes the conundrum and that is why this 2024 Republican presidential race, which is just getting underway, may end up answering a lot of these questions about the direction of the GOP.

"Welcome back in clay Travis buck Sexton show, appreciate all of you hanging out with us. We've been talking about what is being treated as breaking news on Fox News. They are carrying the live Alex Murdoch Murdoch. Testimony in the double murder case of his wife and son, and many of you have been following this case. It's among it has spawned an absolute cavalcade of podcasts and true crime stories and everything else associated with it. And we've got a caller who wanted to weigh in from South Carolina. Let's see kip in Charleston, South Carolina. You wanted to mention this case. You've been following it. Roger that greetings playing buck, thank you. The Murdoch family seems to be followed by murders. And I can't give you the exact knowledge, but let's go say four years ago, there was a young man found deceased out in the rural, out in the bush, run over several times, miles from his vehicle, miles from where he should have been that had some relationship schoolmate or whatever of the Murdoch children that the sheriff was never able to tie it together. A year or two later, the Murdoch family's housekeeper mysteriously falls down a flight of stairs to her death, she's grossly over insured, that money ended up in Alec Murdoch's Murdoch's law firm. Yeah. And then as time, then two years later, there's the boating accident that claims the life of a 19 year old girlfriend and then two years from that, we have the double murder of the wife and the son. So the whole murder beginning is almost 8, 9 years ago. And they never mentioned these other two fatalities. They just focus on the sun and the daughter and then the sun and the wife. And the boating accident. But thank you for the call. Thank you so much, kip from Charleston. The housekeeper situation I mean, that is a 9 out of ten on the suspicious scale. And buck, the way that that housekeeper story is tied in to the fraud that they uncovered. Because there was no suspicion basically, she fell down the stairs, allegedly, and died, and she was there was a huge insurance payment. And they didn't realize the surviving heirs of the housekeeper, how much money had been given and paid out in life insurance. Because Murdoch kept the vast majority of that money and gave, I think, like $25,000. I don't remember the exact, it was a rounding error on the millions that he was able to keep over that incident. And this is one of the things. Again, what seems to have started all of this unraveling is the death of this girlfriend of the youngest son in a boating accident. And buck, you were talking about police investigations and everything else. When everyone was in the hospital. At that boating accident, Murdoch, who is an attorney, the father showed up and made all of the survivors not say a word to police. Because his son was drunk when he was piloting the boat, and they were trying to figure out, hey, who was actually even driving this boat at the time that it hit the bridge and this girl went flying out of the boat and ended up dying. And so that is where everything began to unravel, but he was trying to rig the investigation into the boat accident according to reports from inside of the hospital immediately rushing to the survivors bedsides and telling them don't talk to the police at all. We're getting you attorneys. Don't be involved in any way and participating in this investigation. But that is what then led to the alleged embezzlement being uncovered in everything sort of unraveling in the Murdoch family and has led to finally allegedly the murder of both of this the mom and the son by Murdoch himself.
