Fox News had confirmed later last week that the broadcaster would part ways with Lara Trump, the daughter-in-law of former US President Donald Trump, as Trump has announced his intention to run again for a presidency in 2024. According to the broadcaster’s policy, Fox Media Company could not be related to contributors who announces a campaign for public office, while as Donald Trump has announced his intention to run for the White House once again in 2024, the network’s core regulation prohibits Lara Trump from being paid off for contributing. Lara Trump, wife to the former US President Donald Trump’s younger son, Eric, alongside a mother of two kids, had campaigned boisterously for Donald Trump back in the 2020s. Nevertheless, her job at Fox networks has always been in an utter contention, as when she had been appointed as a contributor in Fox back in the Spring of 2021, she had been looking to run for US Senate in North Carolina.
Fox News parts ways with Lara Trump
Meanwhile, appreciating Lara Trump’s involvement to Fox Network, the broadcaster said in a statement on Sunday, “We appreciate Lara’s valuable contributions across Fox News Media programming”.
An LA Times report has first unveiled the decision of Fox News. Nonetheless, Lara Trump’s departure as a contributor to Fox News comes over the heels of a clutch of criticisms regarding her editorial page, while Wall Street Journal alongside The New York Post had directly had a shot at her.
However, Wall Street Journal alongside The New York Post, are sister entities owned by News Corp., a corporate sibling to Fox Corp. Concomitantly, both News Corp and Fox Corp are owned by the Murdoch family.
