The man behind the success of Apple, called Rubert Murdoch’s Fox News a “destructive force in our society.” Mr. Jobs then scolded Rupert, telling him that destruction will be his legacy if he doesn’t change the direction of the network.
The information was written in Walter Isaacson’s new book, and mentions Jobs remarks to Murdoch after a News Corp. retreat;
“You’re blowing it with Fox News,” Jobs told him over dinner. “The axis today is not liberal and conservative, the axis is constructive-destructive, and you’ve cast your lot with the destructive people. Fox has become an incredibly destructive force in our society. You can be better, and this is going to be your legacy if you’re not careful.” Jobs said he thought Murdoch did not really like how far Fox had gone. “Rupert’s a builder, not a tearer-downer,” he said. “I’ve had some meetings with James, and I think he agrees with me. I can just tell.”
Murdoch later said he was used to people like Jobs complaining about Fox. “He’s got sort of a left-wing view on this,” he said.
Apparently, Jobs’ words of wisdom to the owner of Fox News just went in one ear and out the other. Maybe the destruction of our society is their goal. It’s hard to think otherwise when you look at their willful attempt to mislead their audience.
