With Fox News’s Ratings in Free Fall,
the Future Looks Bleak

American Thinker, by Peter Barry Chowka

Original Article

Posted By:magnante, 5/19/2017 8:48:53 AM

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

More Juan Williams! Bring back George Will! Bring back Jonah Goldberg - - and Bill Kristol!

And more pompous bilge from Krautz, Hayes, and Hume.

There - - now it´s fixed.

No other network cared for ratings, only that the progressive agenda was touted 24/7. Sadly, Fox now joins that pathetic group.

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.

Tucker Carlson is a breath fresh air.

I only agreed with O´Reiley about 70% of the time, but I did watch him. Letting him go lit the fuse.

Whenever I hear Shep Smith´s voice I leave the area fast.

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.

The only thing missing on FOX now is a stripper pole.

Oh well... nothing good or bad lasts forever; a new conservative cable outlet will come along, and in 20 years when it becomes a goofy hellhole like Fox something else will come along.

It´s television, man. The only thing that matters is keeping the geese hooked between commercial breaks. That´s where the dough is.

Forgivable in an otherwise excellent and important site.

BTW---Our enemies in DC obsess over what is found on this site. A cogent comment here is worth a truck-load of ´letters´.

The ´no bad language´....´no banter´ nature of this site lends great credibility and considerable influence to the efforts of our loyal staff and much beloved hostess.

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 was exactly what you would expect from a formulaic pop-tart whose shuddery, over-processed, electronically programmed music pretty well makes her the favorite inflatable blow-up doll of the Hollywood celebrity songster cavalcade.

Attempting to upstage President Trump as he travels in Europe, President Obama made an appearance in Germany at the Brandenberg Gate for a rock star welcome. He also appeared with Chancellor Angela Merkel, in a bid to boost her campaign. Seeking to help Merkel get re-elected (a woman he spied on to much brouhaha at the time, but this is politics), it´s clear that Obama´s new game out of office is to have a cadre of like-minded world leaders to obstruct President Trump as he seeks to work with Europe.

OK, gang, time to move along -- other stuff is more important. That’s the logical strategy for the Democratic Party leadership to signal the base that the Russia conspiracy narrative has served its purpose and belongs in the Memory Hole. You don’t want to go farther out on the limb of an unfounded charge dreamed up to explain away the failure of Hillary and her campaign henchpeople to pull off the expected victory. But such a judicious approach is not the métier of rabble rouser Thomas Perez, the party chairman. Into the breach leaped Representative Keith Ellison, the consolation-prize holder of

Rod Rosenstein’s appointment of Robert Mueller to investigate wholly unsupported claims of “links and/or coordination between the Russian government and … the campaign of President Donald Trump” poses the most serious threat to American constitutional government and domestic peace since the Civil War. The only reason anyone is still talking about this subject, let alone investigating it pursuant to an order originating at the highest levels of the United States Justice Department, is that the media propaganda arm of the Democratic Party has refused to stop headlining it, despite a total lack of evidence of criminality after continuous investigation for over

I have an answer for the Instapundit´s favorite question: "Why is the Democratic Party such a cesspit of hypocrisy?" in two words: "disconfirmatory reality,” meaning the failure of reality to conform to their beliefs. This leads to all sorts of mischief and worse. Last week, revered left wing thinker Noam Chomsky said that President Trump and the Republican Party represent a worse threat to humanity than ISIS; NBC news reader Lester Holt interrupted the President of the United States nine times in three minutes; some art professor announced that Republicans in Congress should be lined up and shot; and exactly none

President Trump’s firing of FBI director James Comey has been pretty big news, and there will be no dearth of continued commentary about what it means. But what rings hollowest in all the commentary surrounding it have been the nearly uniform claims among the left that his firing represents a “constitutional crisis.” Does the left now care about the United States Constitution? Because that would certainly be newsworthy. This is the same left which, as David Harsanyi of The Federalist reminds us, didn’t utter a peep of disapproval about President Obama’s efforts to “unilaterally legalize millions of people without Congress.” What

Mr. Smartpants may have outsmarted himself. James Comey has painted himself into a corner by indirectly leaking a memorandum to the New York Times (a person who read the memorandum shared excerpts from it to reporter Michael Schmitt), and may even have placed himself in legal jeopardy. Gregg Jarrett of Fox News, a former defense attorney, explains: Under the law, Comey is required to immediately inform the Department of Justice of any attempt to obstruct justice by any person, even the President of the United States. Failure to do so would result in criminal charges against Comey. (18 USC 4 and 28 USC

Yes, Obama had help with his 1995 masterpiece, Dreams from My Father – a lot of help – but it sure as hell did not come from local editorial guru Bill Ayers.

The cancellation by ABC of Tim Allen’s hit comedy “Last Man Standing” comes on the heels of CBS’ Stephen Colbert’s obscenity-laced rant against Donald Trump and underscores how far the media thought police have gone in their war on conservatives, conservative thought, and even conservative comedy. Allen’s show, in which he plays the manager of a sporting goods chain, features Allen’s biting and genuinely funny witticisms poking fun at all things liberal. Its humor is balanced, with the show featuring a Canadian liberal son-in-law who gets his points across. But it is a rarity among sitcoms, in that any conservative viewpoints

In her Wellesley College commencement address Friday, the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee took repeated shots at President Trump, the man who beat her in November. "Look at the budget that was just proposed in Washington," Clinton said. "It is an attack of unimaginable cruelty on the most vulnerable among us, the youngest, the oldest, the poorest, and hardworking people who need a little help to gain or hang on to a decent middle-class life… And to top it off, it is shrouded in a trillion-dollar mathematical lie." But Clinton is doing more than just talking about Trump as a once

A free-thinking group of eighth grades refused to pose with House Speaker Paul Ryan during a field trip to Washington DC on Thursday. Half of the students from South Orange Middle School in New Jersey stood on the other side of the street as their classmates had their photo taken with Ryan outside the United States Capitol. When he uploaded the image to Instagram, the ones who had refused to be in it flooded the comments section with insults and complaints. ´Half of us stood across the street including me because we hate you,´ said one. Another spoke to DailyMail.com

Hillary Clinton says that she "beat" Donald Trump—and Bernie Sanders—in a lengthy feature article by New York Magazine. "I beat both of them," she said, evidently referencing her popular vote win over Trump. While Clinton did defeat Sanders, who is not a Democrat, in the Democratic primary, she did not defeat Trump, who was inaugurated as the 45th President of the United States in January. In the story, Clinton discussed her post-election status as a member of the "Resistance" to Trump, but she also reflected on the 2016 campaign, which included a harder-than-expected fight against Sanders for the nomination.

WASHINGTON — Shortly after President Trump took office, Senator Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, the majority leader, met privately with his colleagues to discuss the Republican agenda. Repealing the Affordable Care Act was at the top, he said. But replacing it would be really hard. Mr. McConnell was right. The many meetings Republicans held to discuss a Senate health care bill have exposed deep fissures within the party that are almost as large as the differences between Republicans and Democrats. Elements of a bill that passed the House this month have divided Republicans. Mr. McConnell faces an increasingly onerous math problem.

New revelations have surfaced that the Obama administration abused intelligence during the election by launching a massive domestic-spy campaign that included snooping on Trump officials. The irony is mind-boggling: Targeting political opposition is long a technique of police states like Russia, which Team Obama has loudly condemned for allegedly using its own intelligence agencies to hack into our election. The revelations, as well as testimony this week from former Obama intel officials, show the extent to which the Obama administration politicized and weaponized intelligence against Americans. Thanks to Circa News, we now know the National Security Agency under President Barack Obama routinely violated

It’s pile-on time for America’s commercial airlines. The contempt people hold for them has long been severe, but following a raft of highly publicized incidents, resentment has hit a fever pitch. It started about a month ago, with the forced removal of a passenger onboard a United Express flight. This was followed by several more airlines-behaving-badly controversies, up to and including the death of Simon, a giant rabbit who perished after a London-to-Chicago United flight. Over and over we are reminded about the hellishness that is commercial flying. Enabled by cellphone cameras and the catalyst of social media, even the most

The White House is said to have gone into crisis mode amid reports Jared Kushner is the focus of the FBI´s Russia investigation, while a former CIA boss accusing the president´s son-in-law of perhaps having committed ´espionage´.

French President Emmanuel Macron acknowledged to a French newspaper that his intense handshake with President Trump ahead of the NATO summit in Brussels "wasn´t innocent," but instead was meant as a show of resolve, The Associated Press reported Sunday. "One must show that you won´t make small concessions, even symbolic ones, but also not over-publicize things, either," he told Le Journal du Dimanche, according to the AP. The handshake between Macron and Trump on Thursday drew attention for its visible intensity, with both pairs of knuckles turning white from pressure.
