Fox News and News Corp. vs. ATN and Waystar Royco
The comparisons between the Murdoch’s corporation, News Corp., and the Roy’s corporation, Waystar Royco, are so obvious that they go without saying, but I’ll say it anyway: They’re both multi-billion dollar media portfolios known for foreign-born owners and right-wing news assets.
Succession‘s Waystar-owned ATN is often compared to News Corp.-owned Fox News because both are extremely Republican-leaning and unpopular with Democrats. Remember that fiery spat with Bernie Sanders-adjacent liberal political candidate Gil Eavis at ATN on Succession? Yeah, it’s like that.
