Could a $100 Million Loan from Chinese State Bank to Rupert Murdoch Explain Tucker’s Ouster?
By FRANKIE STOCKES
Tucker Carlson’s ouster from Fox News has raised questions about the network’s ties to Communist China.
Could the Chinese Communist Party and its global influence network be responsible for Tucker Carlson’s ouster from Fox News? Just last year, Rupert Murdoch, the international media mogul who founded Fox News, took a whopping $100 million loan from the CCP-run Bank of China, to fund his continued media ventures. The loan coincided with a much-observed turn in Fox’s coverage, towards a model that’s been called “CNN-lite.”
On March 29th, 2022, Rupert Murdoch, under the banner of his News Corp conglomerate, entered into a massive credit agreement that features mega-loans from multiple banks, including the CCP-run Bank of China. Also involved in the deal are a number of American banks that have been longtime sponsors of anti-American activities. In all, the loan is worth $1.25 billion, with $100,000,000 of it coming from the CCP.
Rupert Murdoch’s massive loan includes $100,000 from the CCP-run Bank of China.
Though the loan deal was made under News Corp, which is separate from Fox Corp, Murdoch’s dealings with the Chinese Communist Party and Fox’s gradual move to the left cannot be ignored, especially when it’s taken into account that in 2022, Murdoch floated the idea of merging Fox Corp and News Corp into one super-conglomerate, a plan that was later aborted when it was determined that it’d be bad for shareholders.
Before his ouster from Fox News, Tucker Carlson, whose audience dwarfed that of all the other shows on the network, took a hardline stance against Communist China and was one of the few cable news hosts willing to broach the subject of COVID-19 and its ties to the Chinese regime, as well as America’s own government, which operates biolabs inside of Communist China.
As a Fox News host, Carlson also covered the Communist Chinese takeover of Brazil, in which the hotly-contested 2022 Brazilian Presidential Election was directly meddled in by the Chinese Communist Party and its vast network of foreign influence operations, a saga that was also closely covered by National File.
In a recent video interview, Carlson blasted Communist China, calling the CCP and its global influence a major “problem” for the United States and the world.
“China is a problem that is very hard for the United States to solve,” Carlson said, before calling out the intentional ceding of global influence and power to the totalitarian state by Western governments and elites.
“By problem, I mean sort of giving hegemony over the world to a country that doesn’t believe anything really that we believe.”
“Our former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright…Got rich effectively making China’s case to the American business community. Many others in our diplomatic core have done the same. That’s a straight-up sell-out. Hollywood sells out. The NBA sells out,” said Carlson.
