Senator Sarah Hanson-Young is the Greens spokesperson for communications & media:
“It is a shockingly bad decision and an indictment on Murdoch. It is a terrifying insight into Lachlan’s plans to entrench his Fox-style news agenda in Australia.
“Putting Tony Abbott on the Fox board is a brazen attack on global efforts to tackle climate change.
“This proves what we all know about the Murdoch’s, they are right wing, climate wreckers. It is no wonder Tony Abbot has been welcomed into the family business.
“We need a Murdoch Royal Commission more than ever.”
