Clean-Living James Murdoch to Run Fox Networks Group

James Murdoch hasn’t overseen a company that illegally hacked people’s phones for several months now, so of course he is getting a promotion. This is America, and that’s how we do things. Or at least that’s how the Murdoch’s do things. Get involved in a scandal? Get rewarded with a bigger job!

The Wall Street Journal reports that Murdoch — currently deputy chief operating officer of News Corp. — will oversee Fox Networks Group, which includes a slew of channels, including Fox, FX, and National Geographic. The only catch? Murdoch isn’t getting control of Fox News or Fox Business which will still be overseen by Roger Ailes.

We’re being serious when we say we can’t wait to see what Murdoch does with this new role.
