For years, liberal critics raged that Fox News was “state TV.”
That all got upended on Election Night.
And Fox News found out one harsh reality when they changed their coverage about Trump.
Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace turned in a clownish, and biased performance in the first Presidential debate.
On Election Night, Fox News prematurely called Arizona for Joe Biden.
When Donald Trump intended to contest the results in other states, Fox News anchors tried to dismiss his claims.
And finally host Neil Cavuto censored Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany and cut away from airing a press conference where McEnany sought to outline the campaign’s evidence of widespread voter fraud.
Fox is now paying the price for adopting the posture toward Donald Trump of CNN or MSNBC as its audience begins to abandon the network.
The National Pulse reports:
Last Friday’s ratings for the supposedly “conservative” outlet were less than both CNN and MSNBC for the first time in years, according to an internal Fox document containing viewership analytics.
The numbers show that on November 6th, Fox pulled 2,266,000 viewers while CNN saw nearly twice as many at 4,009,000 viewers. Similarly, MSNBC, per Fox’s internal numbers, counted 2,983,000 viewers, beating Fox by over 700,000 viewers.
The numbers below correspond to CNN’s viewership, dwarfing Fox’s nearly 2,300,000 viewers by almost 2,000,000.
Primetime hosts Tucker Carlson, Sean Hannity, and Laura Ingraham still support the President and his agenda.
But the “straight news” operation at Fox looks like it is caving in to its liberal critics and becoming a Trump-hostile operation.
Will the network return to “fair and balanced” news coverage after they see the decline in viewership?
Any hope for a balanced “mainstream” media in America rests on them realizing their mistake.
