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!
It’s safe to say that none of his many enemies in the global elites anticipated an intellectual challenge from Donald Trump. He doesn’t look or talk or act the way they think an intellectual should. Yet somehow, he has placed them in a box. In his UN debut, he challenged the intellectual basis of the world order they are working towards. He personally addressed many of the political leaders in the audience when he said: …you, as the leaders of your countries will always, and should always, put your countries first. (Snip) Globalists are enemies of the nation-state. They much prefer a global scale and powerful multilateral
Well, well, well. Hope the "destroy Trump" media enjoys the taste of crow now that it has been revealed that, yes, Virginia, Trump Tower and its occupants who were in contact with both candidate and President-elect Trump, including one Paul Manafort, were in fact wiretapped as Trump claimed. Obama’s DOJ and James Comey were both liars in denying the wiretapping for which Trump was widely mocked (snip) Call it Watergate 2.0, the unthinkable wiretapping of a presidential candidate by the administration of a political opponent. This is the electronic version of the Watergate breakin, something more worthy of
If true, this is a blockbuster, that vindicates one of President Trump’s most famous and most roundly criticized tweets, and which may have far-reaching implications. (snip) The information was fed to Robert Mueller’s team that has been searching for a crime. It was the Comey-led FBI in the Lynch-led DoJ, in the Obama presidency, that reportedly used the FISA Court to obtain a warrant, quite possibly based on the phony dossier, that has provided material to get Manafort and pressure him to find something to squeal about and catch a higher-up. The legitimacy of that warrant now is in question.
Many college kids can hardly write a proper English sentence, never mind a proper essay. Meanwhile, the essay-writing industry is huge, churning out tens of thousands of illegal documents. Naturally, all participants in the scam pretend there´s no scam, and so the scam can go on (Snip) Meanwhile, the college (or the individual teachers) could easily determine when students are handing in material above their abilities. The colleges don´t try very hard. If commonsense safeguards were enforced, the pool of applicants ready for college might shrink tremendously. The money would stop flowing. Some professors would no longer have
Once again, big city Democrat politicians have failed us. A deep societal wound was opened this past weekend in the Show Me State, with Ferguson, the false clarion call of “Hands Up Don´t Shoot,” and the Black Lives Matter marches all still fresh in our memories, another. The acquittal on Friday of a white cop on trial for murder for fatally shooting a black man in 2011 after a high-speed chase was immediately met with demonstrations and violence including attacks on police, property, and the media. That was predictable, but what was equally and sadly on display were incendiary comments
New emails unearthed by Judicial Watch confirm that the Clinton Foundation was in fact a pay-to-play influence peddling operation far more worthy of a special prosecutor than imaginary Russians colluding under Trump Administration beds. It is time for President Trump to keep the promise he made in the presidential debate to indict Hillary Clinton for her crimes: About 20 minutes into the debate, Donald Trump delivered a menacing threat to Hillary Clinton. “If I win,”
A fascinating drama played out yesterday at Harvard, as campus-based politically correct thinking slammed into reality, and the grown-ups had to set the boundaries back to common sense. All very publicly. (snip)The real powers at Harvard are The Harvard Corporation and The Board of Overseers. They hire and fire presidents, and they control the money. They think in terms of institutional relationships and the long-term health and status of the oldest and wealthiest university in the country, of which they are the custodians. Anything that threatens that must go. That must be what explains this late-night statement from Kennedy School Dean
Twitter cofounder Evan Williams has said: “I thought once everybody could speak freely and exchange information and ideas, the world is automatically going to be a better place, I was wrong about that.” Yet, we cannot speak freely, can we? (snip) today, every progressive (read Democrat, liberal, or leftist) has his nose pressed into everybody else’s business lest someone think or say something that might melt a snowflake. We can’t have anyone ever offended, or embarrassed, or in any way made uncomfortable by unapproved thought. It is in this way, the language has changed. Whereas the word “violence” has always meant actions
I am not going to go over the new hardware being brought out by Apple. Fanboys are already cooing over the new iPhones. But something – something that flew under the radar to all but techies – is about to substantially alter the power and cost of computing. To those following the Apple event, one item was missing: the Mac Mini. The Mac Mini was and is Apple´s desktop option for those who want to buy just the core computer and provide their own monitor, speakers, keyboard, et al. In its heyday (the 2012 Server Model), the Mac Mini offered an
Take it from someone who used to be a fellow at Harvard at a couple of different institutes, they have their logic in handing out the title. The Institute of Politics at the Harvard Kennedy School of Government lays out quite clearly what they expect their fellows, including the newly-announced Chelsea Manning, to do. They are expected to hang out with students, faculty, and each other. (snip)Fellows are expected to lead eight study groups and attend other Institute activities such as IOP Director’s Dinners and weekly Fellows lunches. IOP Fellows act as mentors to students; therefore, each Fellow makes them
There is a lot of competition, but MSNBC´s Katy Tur is a strong contender for the title of "Most Obnoxious Media Leftist." In her latest embarrassment, she revealed on Meet The Press Daily a disturbing understanding of what life is like for Americans. To put it bluntly, in her world, politics is the supreme concern, and all life decisions quite naturally accord priority to the political consequences of personal choices. That must be why, without a flicker of hesitation, she could recommend that the Democratic Party simply "recruit" surplus Democrat voters from California to relocate to swing states that voted for
American progressives have fnally gone all the way to a totalitarian vision, demanding control over not just your behavior, but your thoughts and beliefs. This as the price of simply living without being attacked. (snip) Do you believe in traditional marriage but don’t care that gays marry? Think it’s OK teenagers take hormonal injections to swap genders but it’s not right for your kids? Don’t really give a hoot about someone who identifies as “xe”? Well, too bad, sucker. The new dispensation doesn’t care for your waffling. Going forward, your private beliefs must align with your public stance. No exceptions made
A Texas woman has been getting ridiculed online for being “too sensitive” after she blasted the arts-and-crafts chain Hobby Lobby for selling faux raw cotton stalks — which she found offensive. “This decor is WRONG on SO many levels,” Daniell Rider posted on Facebook this past Thursday, along with a photo of the phony textile plants. “There is nothing decorative about raw cotton…A commodity which was gained at the expense of African-American slaves,” she said. “A little sensitivity goes a long way. PLEASE REMOVE THIS ‘decor.´” Rider, who is black, appeared to take the picture of the cotton herself
Hillary Clinton told host Terry Gross on NPR’s “Fresh Air” Monday that she may challenge the results of the 2016 presidential election. “No, I wouldn’t rule it out,” Hillary said in a response to a question asking if she would “rule out questioning the legitimacy of this election.” Clinton stated that she believes the Russian government influenced the election in favor of Trump, and that this could make the outcome illegitimate. “[Trump knew] they were trying to do whatever they could to discredit me with emails, so there’s obviously a trail there… There’s no doubt they influenced the election: We now know more
Tuesday on MSNBC’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports,” while reacting to President Donald Trump’s speech at United Nations, former White House press secretary for the Obama administration Josh Earnest said the overall speech lacked “coherence,” and Trump mocking North Korea’s leader Kim Jong-un was “foolish.” Earnest said, “Having sat in the hall of the United Nations where the president of the United States delivers an address for gathered world leaders — that’s something I did for the last three years—what you know world leaders are looking for in that room is a coherent strategy for taking on the biggest challenges around the
Climate change poses less of an immediate threat to the planet than previously thought because scientists got their modelling wrong, a new study has found. New research by British scientists reveals the world is being polluted and warming up less quickly than 10-year-old forecasts predicted, giving countries more time to get a grip on their carbon output. (Snip) The discrepancy means nations could continue emitting carbon dioxide at the current rate for another 20 years before the target was breached, instead of the three to five predicted by the previous model. “When you are talking about a budget of 1.5
Union — A violent brawl over the weekend between two couples at a local Walmart was captured on video showing punches being exchanged as children watched and attempted to intervene. The video appears to show the two couples fighting Saturday near the jewelry section in the store on Springfield Road in Union. (Snip) The two men can be seen exchanging blows as the two women brawl at the same time. A third woman can be seen attempting to break up the fight between the two women with two young children also trying to intervene. Dozens of customers looked on at the ensuing
Democratic Gov. Jerry Brown of California compared President Donald Trump supporters to prehistoric cave dwellers Monday during a New York climate event. Brown, an outspoken Trump critic, issued an usually harsh derision of Trump supporters after dismissing the president’s rhetoric on climate change science and U.S. policy toward North Korea as “stupid and dangerous and silly.” “They’re both kind of very similar,” Brown said. “You should check out the derivation of ‘Trump-ite’ and ‘troglodyte,’ because they both refer to people who dwell in deep, dark caves.” Brown attended the climate event, which coincided with the U.N. meeting in New York,
United Nations - The Latest on President Donald Trump and North Korea (all times local): 8:00 a.m. Former Secretary of State John Kerry says President Donald Trump´s United Nations speech may have put America in isolation and danger. Appearing on MSNBC´s "Morning Joe" show Wednesday, Kerry criticized Trump´s harsh rhetoric against North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. Kerry said, "You have to ask yourself: Is America safer because of ´rocket man?" He was referring to Trump´s characterization of Kim. Kerry said that kind of harsh language will make it harder for the United States to engage in diplomacy on
Special Counsel Robert Mueller´s team is reaching back more than a decade in its investigation of Paul Manafort, a sign of the pressure Mueller is placing on President Donald Trump´s former campaign chairman. The FBI´s warrant for a July search of Manafort´s Alexandria, Virginia, home said the investigation centered on possible crimes committed as far back as January 2006, according to a source briefed on the investigation. The broad time frame is the latest indication that Mueller´s team is going well beyond Russian meddling during the campaign as part of its investigation of Trump campaign associates. Manafort,
Liberal Brown University is set to offer segregated dinners for black and Muslim students on the tail of recent Antifa protests that have turned violent over the last few months. Purporting to offer “racial reconciliation,” Brown administrators took a $300,000 grant from the Association of American Colleges and Universities (AAC&U) to “break down racial hierarchies and create a positive narrative about race in the community,” the College Fix reported. The money was supplied by donations by liberal organizations such as the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, and Newman’s Own Foundation. There will be two separate segregated “dinner discussion groups,” one for African
U.S. investigators wiretapped President Trump’s campaign chairman Paul Manafort, according to a report by CNN that vindicates the president’s earlier claims, which were mocked as a conspiracy theory. President Trump had tweeted on March 4: “Terrible! Just found out that Obama had my “wires tapped” in Trump Tower just before the victory. Nothing found. This is McCarthyism!” (Tweet) Breitbart News editor Joel Pollak had reported the day before Trump’s tweet that the Obama administration “sought, and eventually obtained, authorization to eavesdrop on the Trump campaign: continued monitoring the Trump team even when no evidence of wrongdoing was found.” Trump’s claim,
Hillary Clinton on Monday would not rule out the possibility of challenging the results of the 2016 presidential election, saying it’s clear the Russians influenced the outcome and that the legitimacy of President Trump’s victory could be called into question as congressional and independent probes into Russian involvement move forward. (Snip) “I wouldn’t rule it out,” she said, though she quickly admitted there’s virtually no legal path forward, and that challenging election results at this point would be unprecedented. “There are scholars, academics, who have arguments that it would be [possible], but I don’t think they’re on
President Trump disturbed some in the press after vowing in his United Nations speech to "destroy" North Korea should the country attack the U.S. In his speech, Trump referred to North Korean President Kim Jong Un as "Rocket Man" and said he was on a "suicide mission" in advancing the country´s nuclear weapons development. "The United States has great strength and patience, but if it is forced to defend itself or its allies, we will have no choice but to totally destroy North Korea," he said. On Twitter, MSNBC host Lawrence O'Donnell said Trump "threatened to commit a war crime" by threatening North Korea.
