In the midst of the impeachment inquiry and the arrest of two of Rudy Giuliani’s associates, Attorney General Bill Barr found time to meet with the owner of Fox News. The New York Times reports:
Attorney General William P. Barr met privately Wednesday evening with Rupert Murdoch, the media mogul who is one of President Trump’s frequent confidants but whose Fox News is viewed by the president as more hostile toward him than it used to be.
The meeting was held at Mr. Murdoch’s home in New York, according to someone familiar with it. It was unclear if anyone else attended or what was discussed. Aides to both Mr. Murdoch and Mr. Barr declined requests for comment on the meeting.
This meeting came the night before Trump tweeted, “@FoxNews doesn’t deliver for US anymore. It is so different than it used to be. Oh well.”
