EVEN RUPERT MURDOCH APPEARS TO BE OVER TRUMP AS A YOUNGER GENERATION EYES 2024
Voters across the political spectrum are fed up with current candidates.
BY KELLY RISSMAN

JULY 24, 2022

The editorial board for the New York Post called former President Donald Trump “unworthy” to be the country’s president again on Friday while The Wall Street Journal condemned Trump's inaction during the Capitol attack, further emphasizing America’s unhappiness with the 2020 political candidates.

Both papers are owned by Rupert Murdoch, and the conservative editorial boards’ criticism of the former president is striking given the Post’s endorsement of Trump’s last presidential run and the Journal largely supporting him while in office.

The Post editorial seized on the evidence presented in the latest January 6 hearing in which Trump did nothing to stop the mob at the Capitol. “There has been much debate over whether Trump’s rally speech on Jan. 6, 2021, constituted ‘incitement.’ That’s somewhat of a red herring. What matters more — and has become crystal clear in recent days—is that Trump didn’t lift a finger to stop the violence that followed,” The Post editorial board said.
