The sudden death of Roger Ailes (R.I.P.) yesterday is a grim omen for the network he envisioned and built. In the wake of the recent upheavals at Fox News, the conservative cable television network’s ratings are experiencing a precipitous decline from cable news leadership for the first time in the history of the channel. As the rest of the mainstream media continue their efforts to undermine and “resist” the Trump Administration, this development bodes ill for the future -- not only of the unique kind of fair and balanced if right of center reporting pioneered by the Fox News Channel
Gotta say it....SO sick of the news. I used to be a big fan of talk radio and fox along with websites.
After having to listen to Barky for 8 years along with the constant stress of what he was doing to the country, then being elated when President Trump won...and now the endless, endless, ENDLESS leaks and awful stuff, the endless torrent of bilge coming out of DC and the news media I have tuned out completely except for Lucianne and Drudge. It´s just exhausting. Even when conservatives win...we don´t win. They won´t give us a minutes peace so in my famly we have turned it all off.
Roger is gone, he will be missed, but life must go on. New network, and ultimately a new party. The two are related, as Glenn Beck (when he was at Fox and still sane) was instrumental in the rise of the Tea Parties.
(In fact: the departure of Beck was the first crack in FNCs "armor".)
It´s pretty simple. Unless FOX realizes that CONSERVATIVES built their Network, they will continue to slide and become third to CNN and MSNBC. We watched because it was the only place to go to get AWAY from the constant barrage from the Left. Now, we´re offered the likes of Bob Beckel (Druggie and Democrat), Marie Harf (Obama Administration and Airhead) Kat somebody (Comedian and Dumb as a Box of Rocks) and Shep Smith (who for years has been a closet Democrat and extreme Lover of everything Left leaning). That´s it right now. Until they figure out that we are NOT going to watch that Trash and are turning off their channel, they will fail! Moving The Five to 90 was a disaster! Splitting up that group was a foolish move! No wonder MSNBC is winning the 90 hour!
#15, I believe the One America Network is on DirectTV only. Comcast does not carry it. I also heard that this news station is news and NOT fabricated bull. The audience says this station is slanted conservative. I was told that people that watch this station does not watch Fox anymore.
Once the Murdochs changed the Fox News Channel into a RINO to liberal operation the handwriting was on the wall for Fox News Channel´s demise. Essentially the Murdochs are committing corporate suicide.
What is needed is a new conservative cable network. But who knows if the financing will be out there as the liberal Democrats and the leftists in general would immediately attack any corporate entity who dared to advertise on such a new conservative channel.
Future looks bleak? It certainly doesn´t take a brain surgeon to figure out why! Just for starters...Marie Harf?...Shep?...Jerry Rivers?...Julie Roginsky?...Dr. Chuck?...Meghan McQueeg?...Juan Williams?...Prissy Stirewalt?...Tokyo Rove?...Meatloaf Jr.?...Campaign Carl?...
I have sent numerous emails to Fox because I´d like to see Fox succeed. No more...I´m all done. They don´t listen and keep adding trash. I listen to the headlines on Fox and Fools and then turn it off. I tune in for the same reason to Bret Baier...and then turn it off well ahead of the panel that is now a complete insult. Julie Pace from the AP? She´s more obnoxious than a hill of fire ants. The so-called "panels" throughout the day and on Bret are a national joke: Juan Williams,Goldberg, Kristol, Hayes, AB Stoddard (she´s a puke growing larger daily) Julie Pace (AP piece today is shameful and absolute proof that she belongs in a straight jacket) Roginsky, the bottom of the barrel scrapings named Ebony and the anorexic blonde on the new show with Eric Bolling, Shep (doesn´t deserve comment), Meghan 42 Triple E McCain with the pendulous greasy and unwashed blonde locks and penchant for trying to help her demented old traitorous daddy, Geraldo, Marie Harf...and these are just the names that come to mind at the moment. Beginning in the am, and progressing through the day, all the shows are the same. I do watch Tucker and Hannity. That´s it— I watch Fox business, listen to the radio, and use the internet. Fox is dying faster than they think...they don´t listen and they don´t care. They are going to sell us this no talent network of lefties/commies and tell me I should listen/watch? Why.
Even Bret Baier is piling on Trump. Krauhammer´s Trump Derangement Syndrome gets worse by the day. I have no doubt O´Reilly got railroaded. I found him exasperating, but the way he was treated just makes me sick. The Murdoch boys are taking Fox leftwing, so I´m done with them.
Everyone hates the libs on the show, but how else could it be fair and balanced?
Also, as a supporter of a non-Trump candidate and as a newcomer to cable last year (have had to spend $ on other things), I was appalled by how everyone except for Megyn, who was for Cruz, openly ´shilled´ for Trump. Particularly outrageous were Bolling, Tantaros, Kimberly, O´Reilly, the morning crew I think.. Even Gretchen Carlson and Bret Baier were not immune. Ailes said he´d ´had it with Rubio´ or something like that, and Rubio was indeed given short shrift.
And why the pervasive Trumpness? If they were being paid, I think Megyn would have gotten wind of it and leaked it. Had there been hints about future access? Or was it just natural as they were in NY and knew him and Trump Fever was contagious? Whatever - I was disillusioned & disgusted. But it´s still the only option.
I don´t mind some of the changes. They are just balancing things out a bit. The sarcastic Kat is mean, but Bolling, with no self-awareness to this day, sold his journalist´s soul in 2016 so I don´t have much sympathy for him when she rudely cuts him off. They needed someone who´s objective and not a lackey, and that´s Kat.
Tucker is great but his show is white bread compared to The Factor. Megyn, as a sharp interviewer, is missed, too; I don´t care about her clothes.
But I think Fox will remain conservativish; the boys are not fools and know who brung them to the dance. And in time they will find/develop more talent and things will work out. P.S. I like Dana!
Deep in the Colorado mountains each year is the Aspen Security Forum, a Washington, D.C. establishment gab-fest for discussing "critical issues" of national security and intelligence. (snip)One of the panel discussions, moderated by nonpartisan Wolf Blitzer, featured two nonpartisan Obama administration Deep Staters, John Brennan and James Clapper. Discussing one of the Trump stories of the day, that Trump may fire special counsel Robert Mueller, Brennan bromanced Mueller by saying, "It was an inspired choice – they don´t come any better." Of course it was a great choice. They are on the same team – the "destroy Trump at any
The left is determined to sink the Trump presidency. But something even more important than the Trump presidency is at stake. (snip) From the left´s perspective, the Trump presidency is illegitimate not because it lacked a plurality of votes or because of the supposed Russian connection. It is illegitimate because it gives voice to those who do not deserve representation. Hillary Clinton let it slip when she mocked the "basket of deplorables," those whom she accused of racism, sexism, homophobia, xenophobia, and Islamophobia. Having at first insisted that "half" of Trump voters fall into these categories, she then retreated from
Who would have ever thought that the United States could face a coup attempt against its duly elected President? But for all intents and purposes that’s what’s going down. It’s a derivative of an old-fashioned third-world banana republic mob-style coup that is brewing against Donald Trump. (snip)An emotional mob psychology has been unleashed and is out to get Donald Trump and intimidate and divide his party. The locus of this mob is not among the unwashed masses in the rural areas, but rather it is among the leftist elites who inhabit urban America -- people who shape the culture through
With the publication of The Strange Death of Europe, Douglas Murray has made a significant contribution to a crucially important, if still niche genre: the Islamization of Europe. (snip)as Murray sees it, guilt has become a “moral intoxicant” -- Europeans have become “high” on it. They cannot fall back on their Christian faith because their “foundational story” was fatally weakened in the nineteenth century by the combination of Biblical higher criticism and Darwinism. The replacement beliefs in multiculturalism (and Murray quotes Samuel Huntington’s apt observation that multiculturalism is essentially an anti-Western ideology), tolerance, diversity, and “human rights” (as those who
What do you get when you put one American on a British cruise ship with over 4,000 citizens of the U.K.? Answer: a lot of questions about Donald Trump. (snip)Once broached, political discussion can widen in surprising ways. The reserved Brits, known to hold outsiders at arm´s length, embraced this American as a kindred political spirit or even as a sparring mate. In any event, the dikes of resistance caved under a flood of curiosity. In fact, they expressed many of the same concerns and frustrations as those living on the other side of the pond. The influx of immigrants, for
Bavarians are considering leaving Germany. What is it with the European nations that their most productive citizens want to leave? [A] new survey looks to bolster the Bavarian Party´s hopes for a true Free State of Bavaria (the state´s official title). A YouGov poll with Bild tabloid, published online on Sunday, showed that one-third of Bavarian respondents agreed that "my state should be independent from Germany". Bavaria is an anomaly in Germany. Germany was historically chiefly Protestant. Bavaria was mostly Catholic. Most of Germany avoided Roman occupation. Much of Bavaria didn´t and was incorporated into the Roman Empire. Germans are...well, Germanic. Bavarians
My wife Michelle and I have three sons and one daughter. Much to the dismay of foolish, so-called “feminists” like Jody Allard, we’re raising every one of them to be “dangerous,” though, not in the sense that Ms. Allard imagines. It’s worse -- much, much, worse. In case you missed it, Ms. Allard is the infamous mother who -- while longing for “safe,” “feminist men,” and lamenting the allegedly numerous men who populate the so-called “rape culture,” -- has more than once publicly shamed her two sons. I suppose the young men -- both in their late teens -- should at
Breitbart: Trump Defense Department Delays Obama’s Transgender Push in the Military. “The Pentagon is working to delay the July 1 deadline to fully implement the Obama-initiated policy that one year ago lifted the ban on transgender individuals serving in the U.S. military.” While the Pentagon directive to allow transgender men and women to join the military faces an indefinite delay this may be a good time to review just how America was ensnared with this Obama-era policy. The evidence is clear—the American Left succeeded in lobbying the American Psychiatric Association (APA) to eliminate some of the sexual identity disorders from their Diagnostic and
The needle on my schadenfreude gauge just moved into the red zone, where my soul may be in peril. After all, it is indecent to take pleasure in the suffering of another being, and I have no excuse. But really, am I supposed to pretend this misspelling by Senator Maria Cantwell (D-WA) on a giant poster on the hallowed Senate floor doesn’t deserve mockery? [picture]In the interest of fairness, here is the entire context on video. It is even better because she doesn’t notice the misspelling as her aide switches the cardboard posters on the easel, and drones on clueless
The obsession with Donald Trump Jr.’s “Russian” email chain is just the latest example of what the Media/Democrat Party/Establishment Axis does best: engage in misdirection to confuse people about who America’s real enemies are. Now, since the emails are currently Exhibit A in Trump treason allegations, let’s talk about treason. No, we don’t have to go back to when Senator Ted Kennedy secretly approached the murderous Soviets and asked for help defeating Ronald Reagan in 1984. That’s too old and too obvious (snip)Eighty-five percent of our legal immigrants come from the Third World (also, in part, Ted Kennedy’s handiwork); 70 to
When it comes to organizing, leftists are bloody geniuses, and that is one of their main sources of power. That is why they are constantly outmaneuvering us. A few weeks back, I received an email from Act for America, one of the very, very, very few conservative organizations that actually does something besides issuing proclamations that nobody else reads and then pats themselves on the back. They were going to hold a rally against Shariah Law and for human rights (snip)I My wife came because, being Muslim, the idea of Shariah makes her go ballistic and besides she is an
To paraphrase Robert Frost, America has taken the road less traveled. We elected a political outsider. What might America look like today if Hillary had been elected? Had she won we would not be hearing a single word about Russia. Not a whisper. It was not on the left´s radar at all. Ms. Clinton had embarrassed herself with that inane Office Depot reset button while she was Secretary of State. (snip)Had HRC won, she would be implementing thousands of new regulations on businesses to further hamstring the economy. She would let the fascist freaks at the Environmental Protection Agency have
New research shows that ancient humans had sex with non human species. According to a study conducted by Omer Gokcumen, an assistant professor of biological sciences at the University of Buffalo, ancient humans had intercourse with a "ghost species" of "proto human". Gokcumen explains that humans are only one member of a broader species named "hominins". The research found that humans had sex with other members of the hominins group.
President Trump and his advisers are floating possible replacements for Attorney General Jeff Sessions — and the list includes Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), The Washington Post reports.Cruz and former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani (R) are reportedly among the candidates Trump’s team is considering to replace Sessions, though Giuliani said earlier in the day that he´s not being considered. Trump has repeatedly said that he is disappointed by Sessions’s decision to recuse himself from the probe into ties between the Trump administration and Russia, saying in an interview last week that he would have never hired Sessions if he knew
When President Trump made his initial remarks reflecting disappointment in Attorney General Jeff Sessions it was initially unnerving. The subsequent fallout from the public criticism has united the NeverTrump crowd, Cruzbots and professionally GOPe, to defend the honor of the much beloved former Senator. The opportunity to bash Trump is simply an ancillary benefit. Conversely, the MAGA community has largely portrayed the rift as if the Presidential critique was part of a larger strategy between the President and Attorney General. If we wait long enough some mysterious master plan will eventually to be discovered. However, the subsequent POTUS tweets and comments do
Former House Speaker John Boehner said at an event in Las Vegas last week that he used to “sneak into” the White House to see President Barack Obama to avoid scrutiny from the “right-wing press,” according to a report by the Washington Post, which obtained a videotape of Boehner’s remarks. Boehner also lamented the fact that Americans now have too many choices of where to go for news and information. “What’s making everything even worse today is because we have so much news, people get to choose where they get their news,” Boehner said, according to the Post. “It used
At the end of a Senate subcommittee hearing on Tuesday morning, someone sitting near Chairman Susan Collins (R-Maine) didn’t switch off a microphone. Collins was recorded discussing the federal budget and President Trump’s lack of familiarity with the details of governing with a colleague — apparently Sen. Jack Reed (R.I.), the ranking Democrat on the Transportation, Housing and Urban Development, and Related Agencies subcommittee.
BALTIMORE - African American activists have a message for Democrats: If you want to win back the White House, strongly consider a black person on the ticket. On their list are a growing roster of black politicians, notably Sens. Cory Booker, D-N.J. and Kamala Harris, D-Calif., former Attorney General Eric Holder and Deval Patrick, former governor of Massachusetts. Turnout among African Americans in the 2016 presidential election was the smallest in 20 years. It’s a big concern as the NAACP holds its annual convention this week in Baltimore, its first major gathering since the election. Hilary Shelton, head of the NAACP’s
Former House IT staffer Imran Awan was arrested Monday night at Dulles International Airport where he was "trying to leave the country," Fox news reported Tuesday evening. Following his arrest for bank fraud, Awan was finally fired by Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Fla. (Snip) Imran and his Pakistani-born brothers, Abid and Jamal Awan, are currently under criminal investigation by U.S. Capitol Police and the FBI on suspicion that they accessed congressional computers without permission and stole equipment. There is also evidence of "financial schemes that extend beyond the Capitol Police’s purview and may expand to Pakistan," according to The Daily
Monday on WISN’s “The Jay Weber Show,” Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) defended special counsel Robert Mueller and his investigation into Russian election interference by saying Mueller was “anything but” a “biased partisan.” A listener asked Ryan a question about why Republicans in Congress are not doing more to defend Trump against “what is becoming an obvious witch-hunt.” Ryan replied, “Remember, Bob Mueller is a Republican, who was appointed by a Republican, who served in the Republican administration, and crossed over — I mean and stayed on until his term ended.” He continued, “I don’t think many people are saying Bob
Sticky-fingered socialist Bernie Sanders is apparently stealing his neighbor´s Washington Post subscription, as any good socialist might do. In perhaps the funniest and most fitting news of the year, WMAL radio host Chris Plante told his audience of a story he heard from friends about the elderly senator. A man living next to Sanders apparently called the Post to complain that he was hardly ever receiving his subscription. After an investigation into the matter, the paying customer realized that it was his neighbor, Senator Sanders, who was stealing the paper right from under his nose. (Snip) First it was reported that
The moderator lauded Michelle Obama for her achievements over the past eight years and touched on the former first lady’s plans, but Tuesday’s conversation also veered into uncomfortable territory. It was Obama’s largest public appearance since the 2016 election — speaking in front of more than 8,000 people at the Women’s Foundation of Colorado’s 30th anniversary celebration — and she touched on personal attacks that she faced again and again. Many had the same theme. “The shards that cut me the deepest were the ones that intended to cut,” Obama said, according to the Denver Post. “Knowing that after eight
President Donald Trump’s dramatic decision to exclude so-called “transgender” people from the military is a direct rejection of the progressives’ revolutionary demand that Americans’ society should be remade to eliminate all civic recognition of the two different-and-complementary male and female sexes. (Tweets) The Wednesday decision was greeted with anger from the left, which had hoped that the military’s 2016 endorsement of the transgender ideology would push the Supreme Court and legislators nationwide to impose and establish the unpopular claim that a person’s changeable choice of “gender” is more legally important than their biological sex. If endorsed by the courts, that
Let’s review a few recent developments. Last week, Sean Spicer, the White House press secretary, resigned. This was part of a “White House shakeup” to get the Trump administration back on track. The new communications director, Anthony Scaramucci, would fix the White House’s “messaging problem.” Within 24 hours of Scaramucci’s appointment, the president returned to Twitter and unloaded another torrent of political bombshells, including talking about his power to pardon, even as his attorneys were denying that Donald Trump was thinking about pardoning anyone.
