A defamation lawsuit filed by Lachlan Murdoch, the eldest son of media mogul Rupert Murdoch, was filed against Australian news website Crikey on Friday.

Murdoch, CEO of Fox Corp and co-chairman of News Corp, is suing Private Media over an opinion piece about the US Capitol raid.

He claims he was defamed in an article by Bernard Keane, political editor of Crikey, headlined: And Murdoch is his co-conspirator who has not been charged. ”

In a defense filed in court on Friday, Crikey argued that the opinion served the public interest.

Crikey ran a full-page ad in the New York Times last month calling for a “trial of this important issue of public interest journalism freedom in court.”

A defamation lawsuit was filed the next day.

The website sees the fight as one of free speech, highlighting the difference in size and wealth from the Murdoch family-owned businesses.

The company launched a Go Fund Me in its defense, and in a statement released Thursday, CEO Will Hayward said:

In the complaint, lawyers representing Murdoch accused Crikey of using the situation for “self-promotion” and “promoting Crikey’s website and growing its subscriber base,” citing public interest journalism. said the allegations were “dishonest”.
