A new approach to journalism

Rupert Murdoch likes people who target Meghan Markle?

Fox Corp (FOXA.O) Chairman Rupert Murdoch is engaged to former San Francisco police chaplain Ann Lesley Smith, his spokesperson confirmed on Monday, which will mark the fifth marriage for the 92-year-old media mogul.

Murdoch finalized his divorce from actress and model Jerry Hall in August.

Murdoch and Smith, 66, first met in September at his vineyard Moraga in Bel Air, California, and he called her two weeks later, Murdoch told the News Corp-owned NY Post, which broke the news of the engagement. Smith is a widow whose late husband was Chester Smith, a country singer, radio and TV executive.

In his last tweet on March 10 he wrote, “No more tweets for ten days or ever! Feel like the luckiest AND happiest man in world.”

A look at the people he is following on Twitter shows he has no interest what singers, actors and other celebrities have to say on the social media platform as he follows none of them.

Among the126 people is following on Twitter include the likes of Megyn Kelly, Jeremy Clarkson and Piers Morgan.

The similarity between the three above mentioned people is their dislike for Meghan Markle and Prince Harry.

On March 17 in New York, Murdoch presented Smith with an Asscher-cut diamond solitaire ring, according to the Post. They will be married in late summer.

“I was very nervous. I dreaded falling in love but I knew this would be my last. It better be. I’m happy,” Murdoch told the Post

Murdoch’s nuptials are unlikely to change the ownership structure of businesses in which he holds stakes, including Fox Corp (FOXA.O), the parent company of Fox News Channel, and News Corp. Murdoch controls News Corp and Fox Corp through a Reno, Nevada-based family trust that holds roughly a 40% stake in voting shares of each company.
