A former senior Murdoch executive told NPR in an interview released Thursday that he left his job in 2017 over the coverage of Muslims and immigrants by Fox News and other Murdoch networks.

“Scaring people. Demonizing immigrants. Creating, like, a fervor — or an anxiety about what was happening in our country,” former News Corp. senior vice president Joseph Azam told NPR.  “It fundamentally bothered me on a lot of days and I think I probably wasn’t the only one.”

The article goes on to state the following:

News Corp. is separate from Fox News, but both are run by Australian-born mogul Rupert Murdoch and his family.

Azam served as group chief compliance officer for News Corp.’s corporate headquarters, The Wall Street Journal and The New York Post. He worked for News Corp. between 2015 and 2017.

NPR reports that Azam is a Muslim immigrant and war refugee. He told the news organization, however, that he was upset by the rhetoric “as an American.”

    Fox and the Muslims can all go straight to the same place as far as I’m concerned. Freedom of Religion does give you the right to try and shove your religion down my throat no more than it gives me the right to change your believes. If you can’t abide by our constitution then you need to leave our country and leave today.
