News Corp

James Murdoch, former CEO of 21st Century Fox and son of media baron Rupert Murdoch, has quit the board of family-controlled News Corp, owner of Fox News, New York Post, Wall Street Journal, Times of London and Australian newspapers.

"My resignation is due to disagreements over certain editorial content published by the Company’s news outlets and certain other strategic decisions," he wrote in his July 31 resignation letter.

Murdoch did not spell out the reasons for his departure, but he and wife, Kathryn, have been critical of the WSJ and Fox News' coverage of climate change, reported the BBC.

Murdoch stepped down as 21CF chief following the sale of its entertainment assets to Walt Disney Co. His brother, Lachlan, then took over the Fox CEO slot.

Since departing Fox, Murdoch set up Lupa Systems, which has invested in technology companies and Vice Media.
