Murdoch's Muted Might: Behind the Scenes Aid to Mike Johnson

Amidst the cacophony of Marjorie Taylor Greene's removal from committees, Rupert Murdoch's subtle intervention highlights his enduring influence within the Republican Party.

Murdoch's Muted Might: Behind the Scenes Aid to Mike Johnson

In the tumultuous wake of Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene's expulsion from House committees, the once-brash media mogul Rupert Murdoch has played an unassuming but nonetheless pivotal role in the survival of her fellow Republican, Representative Mike Johnson.

Murdoch's influence, although less visible than in the past, remains substantial. His sprawling media empire, including Fox News and The Wall Street Journal, continues to shape the political landscape, and his close ties to Republican leaders provide him with unparalleled access.

While Greene's expulsion dominated headlines, Johnson quietly emerged as a potential ally for Murdoch. Unlike many Republicans who have distanced themselves from Greene, Johnson has consistently expressed support for her. This unwavering loyalty has made him a valuable asset for Murdoch, who sees the congressman as a potential bridge to the party's conservative base.

Murdoch's support for Johnson has been evident in recent days. The New York Post, Murdoch's flagship tabloid, published a glowing profile of Johnson, portraying him as a "rising star" and a "champion of conservative values." The article lauded Johnson's unwavering defense of Greene and his commitment to "fighting woke culture."

Furthermore, Fox News, Murdoch's influential cable news network, has given Johnson ample airtime to air his views. In a recent appearance on "Tucker Carlson Tonight," Johnson denounced the "cancel culture" that he believes is targeting Greene and other conservatives.

Murdoch's support has emboldened Johnson, who has emerged as a vocal critic of the GOP leadership. He has publicly rebuked Republican leaders for their handling of the Greene controversy and has called for a more confrontational stance against Democrats.

Johnson's growing influence within the party is a testament to Murdoch's political savviness. While he has avoided the limelight, he has been quietly cultivating relationships with key Republicans, including Johnson. This strategy has positioned him to shape the direction of the party from behind the scenes.

The extent of Murdoch's influence within the GOP remains to be seen. However, the quiet aid he has provided to Mike Johnson suggests that he is still a force to be reckoned with, despite his diminished public presence.
