Fox News CEO’s Strategy at Center of $1.6 Billion Lawsuit

From a New York Times story by Jeremy W. Peters and Rachel Abrams headlined “Fox News C.E.O.’s Strategy at Center of $1.6 Billion Lawsuit”:

Before the committee investigating the Jan. 6 insurrection held its first prime-time hearing in June, Suzanne Scott, the chief executive of Fox News Media, called Lachlan Murdoch, her boss, to tell him how her network planned to broadcast the event.

They wouldn’t, she said. The channel would stick with its usual prime-time lineup of Tucker Carlson, Sean Hannity and Laura Ingraham. Mr. Murdoch, the executive chairman of Fox Corporation, was fine with Ms. Scott’s decision, according to an executive with knowledge of their conversation.
