Good news for those of you who desire more media commentary from Jane Fonda: She has given her thoughts on Rupert Murdoch potentially buying Time Warner. In short, she think it’s a bad idea.
“I think it would be a catastrophe,” the 76-year-old actress told The Wrap. “If that happens I’m going to be so angry at the FCC. They cannot let that happen.” FCC, you’re officially on notice.
Fonda wasn’t done there. She went on to explain that Murdoch uses his media outlets to spread bad politics. “It’s no secret that Rupert uses his media outlets for political reasons,” said Fonda. “And he is not neutral. And he, you know, his news outlets do things that are unconscionable. And it just cannot happen that he becomes that much of a dominant force in American media.”
We imagine Fonda and Murdoch won’t be getting together for afternoon tea anytime soon.
