Fox News boss Rupert Murdoch has officially endorsed Ron DeSantis for President and has vowed to do everything in his power to prevent Trump from getting back into the White House.
According to Vanity Fair, Murdoch first invited the Gov. DeSantis to his Vineyard in Bel Air, California for dinner in 2020 and assured him that Fox would support his presidential run in 2024.

Earlier this year, signs of this sentiment became more apparent as Fox implemented a soft ban on Trump and began featuring DeSantis more frequently.
Additionally, during this time, the Dominion lawsuit loomed over the news corporation, prompting it to distance itself from the election controversy and thus steer clear of Trump.
Murdoch even expressed regret, stating that he would have preferred his anchors to be more assertive in denouncing Trump’s election conspiracies that defined his campaigns. He was also quoted saying, “I would have liked us to be stronger in denouncing it in hindsight,” per the Independent.
