American Conservative Union chairman and former Trump administration official Matt Schlapp gave an interview to Newsmax where he discussed the resignation of of Fox News head Rupert Murdoch, saying he’s not being invited to appear on Fox anymore because the network has become too “woke.”
“This is really amazing news. Fox News has played a critical role in championing conservative causes for a very long time,” he said. “I was on Fox practically every day for years and years and years.”
“And then something happened in the country: the BLM riots happened, the virus happened, and then this crazy presidential election with all this voter fraud happened. And Fox seemed to want to be at war with its viewers and people who have opinions and voices like me.[It] became a less hospitable place,” he said.
Schlapp pointed out that Murdoch’s son Lachlan will take over the network, and wondered if the new chairman would “recapture the spirit of the early years of Fox” or if the network is “going to continue down the ‘woke’ road.”
As. The Daily Beast points out, Schlapp was accused in January of “aggressively fondling” the crotch of former Herschel Walker staffer Carlton Huffman. Huffman later sued Schlapp over his “repeated unsolicited and undesired advances,” as well as his attempts to “impugn” Huffman’s character.
