Lachlan Murdoch, the CEO of Fox Corp., said Fox News would serve as "loyal opposition" to President Joe Biden, which he said will boost the network's ratings, NBC News reported.
Murdoch spoke Thursday during a Morgan Stanley investor conference and compared Fox News's relationship with Biden to MSNBC's relationship with former President Donald Trump.
"The main beneficiary of the Trump administration from a ratings point of view was MSNBC... and that's because they were the loyal opposition," Murdoch said, according to NBC. "That's what our job is now with the Biden administration, and you'll see our ratings really improve from here."
In response to a question about the recent ratings dip, Murdoch said the network's audience was disappointed by the election results but that the ratings had already started to bounce back.
"Seventy-five million people voted for a Republican president," Murdoch said, according to NBC. "That's what we represent. We're going to stick to the center-right. That's where our audience is."
