Lachlan is currently in the midst of a legal battle with left-wing news website Crikey.

He claims an article published by the website Crikey made baseless, defamatory suggestions that he conspired with Donald Trump to overthrow the U.S. government.

In a defamation lawsuit filed in the Federal Court, Mr Murdoch is suing over a June 29 opinion piece by politics editor Bernard Keane regarding then hearings into Trump and the January 6 Capitol riots.

In the piece, which was widely shared on social media, Keane called the former U.S. president ‘treacherous’ and an ‘unhinged traitor’ and suggested the Murdoch family, which owns and controls Fox News, was an ‘unindicted co-conspirator’.

While the article did not mention Lachlan Murdoch by name, instead referring to the Murdoch family, the Fox executive chairman claims he was defamed and suffered serious damage to his reputation.

‘Murdoch has been gravely injured in his character, his personal reputation and his professional reputation as a business person and company director and has suffered and will continue to suffer substantial hurt, distress and embarrassment,’ documents he filed with the court say.

The lawsuit targets the publisher behind the Crikey masthead, Private Media, as well as Keane and editor-in-chief Peter Fray.

Mr Murdoch said he had not been approached for comment prior to the June 29 article and subsequent related pieces published on the Crikey website, and had only complained to Private Media four times in a five-year period.

He is also seeking injunctions barring the publication and promotions of the allegedly defamatory articles.
