UK Daily Mail: James Murdoch claimed on Friday that U.S. news outlets will be faced with a ‘reckoning’ after last week’s deadly pro-Trump riot at the U.S. Capitol.

In an interview with the Financial Times, the 48-year-old blamed ‘media property owners’ for unleashing ‘insidious and uncontrollable forces’ with their support of disinformation about the 2020 election.

James, the youngest son of billionaire media mogul Rupert Murdoch, also claimed that media groups fueled the riot by leading ‘a substantial portion’ of the public to believe ‘a falsehood’ about the election.

‘The damage is profound,’ James said in Friday’s interview as he criticized media groups coverage of election fraud.
