George Conway, along with several other Twitter commenters, claimed a potential acquisition of Fox News would make a huge impact in the upcoming election, and billionaire Michael Bloomberg was just the person capable of taking over the news network.
In a tweet on Friday, Tom Wright, a senior fellow at The Brookings Institute, suggested Bloomberg, who already owns the Bloomberg News empire, should buy the right-leaning Fox News, which has been notoriously loose with fact-checking and criticism of Trump. “Mike Bloomberg’s first major campaign move should be to buy Fox News,” Wright wrote.
Conway, a lawyer and the husband of Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway, agreed a potential Bloomberg acquisition of Fox News could be a great benefit to the U.S. “Seriously, that would be the greatest thing that he could do for the country,” Conway tweeted on Friday.
