James Murdoch resigns from board of News Corp

James Murdoch has resigned from the board of News Corp, the media giant said on Friday, citing “disagreements” over editorial content.

In a letter of resignation filed Friday afternoon, Murdoch wrote: “My resignation is due to disagreements over certain editorial content published by the company’s news outlets and certain other strategic decisions.”

A filing to the US Securities and Exchange Commission said: “On 31 July 2020, News Corporation received a letter from James R Murdoch tendering his resignation from the company’s board of directors, effective immediately.

“Mr Murdoch informed the company that his resignation was due to disagreements over certain editorial content published by the company’s news outlets and certain other strategic decisions.”

James Murdoch is the fourth child of Rupert Murdoch, the billionaire founder of News Corporation.

News Corp owns the Times, the Sunday Times and the Sun newspapers.
