Hacker News has officially confirmed the closure of its popular news platform Fox News Network.
News is a cornerstone of the site, which it bought for a reported $2.4 billion in 2013.
Its content, which includes stories on politics, sports, entertainment, and business, is a crucial part of the news ecosystem.
It’s one of several sites that has been shut down by the company.
News was shut down in 2018 after it became the subject of a $100 million antitrust lawsuit by the New York Times and other news organizations.
Its owner, News Corp., said the shutdowns were part of its efforts to fight online bias and disinformation.
Fox News Network’s shutdown comes on the heels of a separate Fox News blackout, in which it stopped offering news programming altogether.
Fox News’ parent company, News Corporation, also has been a frequent target of criticism for its role in the 2016 presidential election.
The company has been accused of pushing narratives that hurt the Democratic nominee, Hillary Clinton.
