According to, in an attempt to salvage his reputation and deal with the ongoing $1.6 billion defamation lawsuit, Rupert Murdoch, the 92-year-old billionaire media mogul, is reportedly planning to terminate three notable Fox News personalities.

This move follows Murdoch’s admission of not interfering with his network’s promotion of former President Donald Trump’s unfounded allegations of election fraud.

Insiders within the network believe that these terminations are part of Murdoch’s strategy to protect Fox News’ financial interests, which may require him to make significant sacrifices.

According to reports, some of Fox News’ most prominent personalities, including Sean Hannity, Maria Bartiromo, and Jeanine Pirro, are among those who may face termination.

In addition to these individuals, Fox News CEO Suzanne Scott is also rumored to be at risk of being let go.

The goal of these moves is to prevent any loss of the network’s sizable audience in light of the ongoing controversy surrounding the Fox-Dominion Voting Systems lawsuit.

A media industry insider reportedly told Puck magazine this week that Rupert Murdoch and his company are in serious trouble. The insider stated that Murdoch’s actions have negatively impacted both himself and his organization.

In testimony released earlier this week, Murdoch himself acknowledged that Fox News talent who promoted baseless claims of election fraud made by former President Donald Trump should face disciplinary action, including possible termination, as a consequence of the ongoing multi-billion-dollar lawsuit scandal.

In response to a question about the appropriate consequences for those who knowingly made false statements on air, Rupert Murdoch suggested that they should be reprimanded or possibly terminated.

This revelation is particularly surprising given that many Fox News executives, producers, and talent were aware that former President Donald Trump’s claims of election fraud in 2020 were unfounded, yet still reported on them.

Moreover, some members of the network allegedly supported Trump’s assertions.
