James Murdoch steps down from News Corp board

James Murdoch (pictured right) resigned from his position as a board member of the News Corporation, listing a difference of opinions over editorial content as his reason for the decision.

The youngest son of Rupert Murdoch, the founder of the Fox Corp. and the News Corp., has been the board member of the company since 2013.

"My resignation is due to disagreements over certain editorial content published by the company’s news outlets and certain other strategic decisions," Murdoch wrote in a statement without elaborating further on what kind of disputes caused him to leave the company.
