    WELL, BYE: Bowing out of the family media empire, James Murdoch challenges conservative line

    Once seen as a contender for succession at his father Rupert Murdoch’s global media empire, James Murdoch resigned from the board of News Corp on Friday, citing ‘editorial disagreements’. The decision to step down severs his last corporate ties with his family and their companies’ politically conservative outlook.

    “My resignation is due to disagreements over certain editorial content published by the company’s news outlets and certain other strategic decisions,” James Murdoch, 47, wrote in his letter, which News Corp disclosed soon after the close of business on Friday.

    The brief resignation letter reads as follows:

    Ladies and Gentlemen:

    I hereby tender my resignation as a member of the Board of Directors of News Corporation (the “Company”), effective as of the date hereof.

    My resignation is due to disagreements over certain editorial content published by the Company’s news outlets and certain other strategic decisions.

    Sincerely,

    James R. Murdoch
