Fox News Is Dropping Its
‘Fair & Balanced’ Slogan

New York Magazine, by Gabriel Sherman

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 6/14/2017 10:23:28 PM

As Fox News moves further into the post–Roger Ailes era, the network is shedding one of its most iconic elements. According to network executives, Fox News has abandoned the marketing slogan “Fair & Balanced.” The decision was made last August after Ailes’s ouster by Fox News co-president Jack Abernethy, because the phrase had “been mocked,” one insider said. Another executive explained that the tagline was “too closely associated with Roger.” Fox executives have been instructed by management to market the network by its other tagline: “Most Watched. Most Trusted.” It is hard to overstate the significance of what shedding “Fair

Comments:
The total deconstruction of FNC continues by the two evil leftist Murdoch boys. I guess they couldn´t very well keep that slogan when more leftists are appearing on FNC. More and more ´journalists´ from Politico are on. Sadly, one was on the panel the other night with Bret Baier. That was a first. He was there was with a fool from Yahoo News. Seriously? I´ve never seen anyone before on FNC from that pathetic outlet. It´s so sad to see. Other than today, I find myself switching constantly or putting it on mute like I have never done

Contd. "A Fox News spokesperson confirmed that the network is dropping the slogan but said the branding change won’t affect programming or editorial decisions."

Really? Maybe they want to believe that but we all know better. The more leftists they bring on the more it will change and has changed. These changes are also hurting their ratings. Link below.

Other than Fox & Friends, Tucker and Hannity I have it on less and less when it used always be on in the house. We desperately need a new truly conservative channel. I refuse to ever watch CNN or MessNBC so for now FNC is my go to for the news.

Yeah, no point in false advertising, eh? I will never again deliberately watch Fox News. It was our last Go-To for Fair and Balanced news. We stayed loyal for all their 20 years. Well, no longer. Buh-Bye, FNC.

I never liked when they first adopted it, and commented so directly on the Fox blog at the time. The slogan opened FNC to criticism from the left. I want a conservative network, period. If I want to hear liberals, I can tune in to the alphabets, CNN, or (P)MSNBC (thanks, Rush). So much time is wasted with liberal filibustering, and when a conservative is just about to make their point, it seems that the FNC producers are yelling "Wrap!" into the earpieces. (Where do the FCC rules require "hard breaks"? Rush runs "long" all the time!)

This has been true all along, and is even worse since the Murdoch sons took over. (Every time you see a guest fiddle with the earpiece, the producers are probably chatting in it, likely telling them to "wrap".)

Now, even the pretense of being a conservative network has been cast aside.
FNC´s new slogan should be: "We´re just like all the others." /s

It won´t be long before Juan has the headliner spot. O´Reilly was a boor but the man was smart and serious about his work. Kelly shot her career in the foot in the first Republican primary debate and has been drowning ever since. They claim nothing will change but I stopped watching so that´s a big change for me.

Today was a good example of why people hate Cable TV. From the time of the shooting this AM, until the end of Hannity´s show FOX had nothing on but the shooting. Hello! There are other things going on in the world. Yes, they should cover it, but maybe give hourly updates. I mean jeesh, how many times can you interview the people who lived nearby, or the guys who were there, or just show the long line of First Responders. Meanwhile, the narrators drone on and on and on. Made me frantically grab for the Remote and find HGTV which I then left on for the rest of the day. I did check in every so often to see if there was anything new, but there was nothing! All of Cable did the non stop coverage. It´s just plain dumb to try and stretch a story for that many hours without anything NEW to tell the viewers!

This has been coming a long time. I no longer watch and haven´t for quite awhile. Once Hannity leaves that will be the final death knell for FNC. It´s a shame. What was once a breath of fresh air among a bunch of biased network dung has now become just another piece of waste in the cesspool we call news. Good riddance!

If Fox was food, they would have been in trouble for false labeling a long time ago.

They are rapidly becoming the "me too" network. Why don´t they savetime and rename themselves "XYZ" as just another alphabet network.

Now we know that the Murdoch boys are more interested in leftist ideology than running a successful network news organization. While Fox has been slipping toward the left for years, it was still watchable. No more. I turn on Tucker Carlson because he is the best interviewer out there. Occasionally, I will watch Hannity if I can take his ploviating questions. While he has good info, he is getting in the way with his thousand word questions which is very off putting. It´s all about what he knows and the information he has which he repeats over and over. If I want to watch something without a crazy lib spewing garbage, I watch Lou Dobbs on Fox Business.

The Murdoch boys may be proud of themselves but they will be much less rich for it. However, they will be guests at all the right parties so there´s always that.

Not only did Fox´s leftward tilt turn me off, but I´ve hated the variety show-type programming with their celebrity fawning and the cooking segments. Fox is supposed to be different from GMA, not mimic it! And then there are the cookie-cutter cuties with their quadricep muscles on display. We watch Fox Business News instead where the news is the news and the legs are discreetly kept behind the desks.

Fox is typical of a ´business reality´ the first Generation makes the business, the second generation maintains the business cash flow.. The third gen destroys it....Fair and Balanced was a joke...By the second interview of the day.. The Democrap talking points were down solid, and just parroted for the rest of the day...That is what is driving FOX into the rest of the day!

For me, it´s Fox & Friends in the am, for about an hour and tv is off until I watch Fox Business. I do like Stuart Varney in the am and switch to him. The Brothers have destroyed what was a decent cable station. Too many libs now and no balance. Too bad for them they deserve to lose billions.

Just for starters, how about...Marie Harf?...Shep?...Jerry Rivers?...Julie Roginsky?...Dr. Chuck?...Meghan McQueeg?...Juan Williams?...Prissy Stirewalt?...Tokyo Rove?...Meatloaf Jr.?...Campaign Carl?...

"News Alert, News Alert, News Alert"

we noticed that they must have eliminated a couple of jobs at least as they no longer instantly provide the name of the commentator/guest in a caption - that position seems to have been totally eliminated - was that a cost-cutting measure to offset losses elsewhere?

Fair and Balanced is like the word "Unity" right now. It´s a placebo. It´s fake, it´s phony. It means nothing.
There´s no unity and those that say both sides of the aisle are guilty are dead wrong. I want to hear someone say "stop with the BS." Ninety five per cent of this is coming from only one side and has for decades. So far it´s only been a few radio pundits who have the courage to tell the truth. The Left is vocal because they have the media that supports their lies and corruption. As they say, there´s strength in numbers.

Another chop in the tree trunk by the Murdoch "boys" who feel they know so much more than their father and/or Roger Ailes. And as for me, I am a 40 something female who was/is not the least offended that a man who could barely walk made a few comments to women who never said a word until their shows were cancelled (due to low ratings) or they saw the $ trail ahead. I am just horrified by what the Lads are doing to prove THEMSELVES great---they wouldn´t even have the option if they had to do this on their own, but that doesn´t occur. I wasn´t an O´Reilly fan, but thought he offered, after the nonsense, a BALANCED rational view of the country and government, and miss the man. Now they will gun for Hannity, I am sure, and when that happens, there go their ratings in general.

Clinton: GOP will become the
´death party´ if Senate bill passes
Fox News, by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 6/23/2017 9:20:24     Post Reply
Former presidential nominee Hillary Clinton came out swinging in a tweet Friday, saying if Senate Republicans pass their current healthcare bill, they will become the “death party.” Clinton’s post referenced an article from the Center for American Progress, an independent nonpartisan policy institute, which cited Harvard researchers as saying “the Senate bill could result in 18,000 to 28,000 deaths in 2026.” (Snip) The tweet from Clinton follows an earlier tweet urging her supporters to "speak out against" the bill.

Former President Obama’s foreign policy adviser and speechwriter Ben Rhodes implied Fox News was state-sanctioned media on Friday. “Avoiding on camera questions from independent media and favoring a state-sanctioned outlet would be cause for concern in any country,” Rhodes said in a tweet, linking to another tweet about White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer´s interview with the network. (Snip) Rhodes comment comes as the White House takes criticism for refusing to hold on-camera press briefings. CNN anchor John King also blasted Fox News’ close relationship with President Trump earlier in the day, calling the media organization “State TV” after accusing

Further illustrating the blatant collusion between the Democratic Party and the news media, MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews and Democratic Senator Richard Blumenthal (Conn.) spent Wednesday night predicting that history will look back on the Trump era and conclude the liberal media were “the heroes” who stood for decency and truth. Matthews swooned to Jeremy Peters of The New York Times that “one thing that is important from your end from The New York Times and the other great papers of the country is the public knew” nothing about the supposed Russia-Trump team ties since the Trump administration wouldn’t admit

Ashton Phillips was trying to take a picture of the bald eagle circling his boat, but instead of getting a great picture, he watched as it took away with salmon. “I saw this one eagle kind of circling and it was along the shoreline, so I took out my camera to snap a picture of it,” said Phillips. “All of a sudden out of nowhere, it started heading toward the

MSNBC “Morning Joe” co-host Mika Brzezinski compared President Donald Trump’s administration to North Korea Friday, saying “It does feel like a developing dictatorship.” “I will say you can do some work reading history and reading books about how dictatorship happen. The development of very negative forces taking over and what you are seeing is either this happening right now, or someone who’s not well. Very few options,” Brzezinski continued. Co-host Joe Scarborough tried to lighten to mood during the segment, saying, “I think it’s actually more like Hogan’s Heroes if anything else.” Brzezinski she quietly rebuked Trump once more saying

(Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch requested the Trump administration stop members of Congress and their staff from unlawfully purchasing, with taxpayer subsidies, health insurance through the District of Columbia’s small business exchange. The Judicial Watch request was made on June 14, 2017, to the Centers for Medicare Medicaid Services (CMS) as part of a process set out by the Department of Health and Human Services to reform the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA), otherwise known as Obamacare. Judicial Watch wrote: The ACA requires states to create at least two exchanges: a small business exchange (referred to as “SHOP” in the

An Obama-appointed federal judge in Virginia early this month released a Honduran teen who sold drugs, illegally crossed the U.S. border, and was a member of the violent street gang MS-13. U.S. District Judge Elizabeth K. Dillon ordered the 17-year-old to be released because his “rights had been violated” after he crossed the Rio Grande and turned himself in to U.S. Border Patrol, the Washington Post reported. “The judge ruled that, by holding the illegal alien gangbanger without a hearing, the government violated his rights to due process and family unity,” according to Judicial Watch. The former gang-member’s identity has not been revealed

EXCLUSIVE: President Trump is considering calling a Camp David-style summit to address growing tensions among long-established U.S. allies in the Arab world and renew his call for those nations to confront the “crisis of Islamic extremism,” Fox News has learned. The gathering would follow Saudi Arabia, Egypt and five other Muslim countries severing diplomatic and commercial relations with Qatar. The regional powers had accused the tiny Gulf state of funding terrorism – blasting Qatar for allegedly boosting groups like ISIS, Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood and working with Iran to destabilize the region.

Baltimore, Md. businesses filed a lawsuit against the city for failing to protect their property during the 2015 Freddie Gray riots. Sixty plaintiffs joined the lawsuit alleging that the city and police department were inadequately prepared for the riots, leading to almost $13 million in damages to over 380 businesses, CBS Local Baltimore reported Thursday. “The City and other Defendants failed them when they adopted a policy of restraint and issued stand-down orders, caring more about the public perception that they feared would result with increased police presence than preventing what were clearly preventable riots,” Peter K.

A longtime friend of James Comey is teasing what could be a bombshell story about the former FBI director and his interactions with President Trump. Benjamin Wittes, a senior fellow at the Brookings Institution, posted an ominous message on Twitter on Friday: “TICK TICK TICK TICK TICK TICK.” The lawyer, who blogs at Lawfare, has posted similar messages in the past just before major stories in the ongoing Trump-Comey saga hit The New York Times. Wittes wrote on Twitter that the upcoming story could be published later Friday or on Monday. The heads-up comes a day after Trump revealed that

Jon Ossoff was on a trajectory to defeat Karen Handel narrowly, poised to deliver a humiliating blow to the White House in a race billed as a referendum of Donald Trump’s early months in office. Then the Republican voters in Georgia’s 6th Congressional District unexpectedly showed up in droves. Pollsters say sky-high turnout drove Handel, the GOP nominee, to a nearly 4-point victory on Tuesday, despite most pre-election surveys showing Ossoff with a small-but-shrinking lead. Mathematically, a 4-point loss for a Democratic House candidate in a district that has traditionally elected Republicans by wide margins is an encouraging result for

California is restricting publicly funded travel to four more states because of recent laws that leaders here view as discriminatory against gay and transgender people. All totaled, California now bans most state-funded travel to eight states. The new additions to California’s restricted travel list are Texas, Alabama, Kentucky and South Dakota. They join Kansas, Mississippi, North Carolina and Tennessee as states already subjected to the ban. California Attorney Xavier Becerra announced the new states at a Thursday press conference, where he was joined by representatives from ACLU Northern California and Equality California.

(Facebook) - Former President Barack Obama took to Facebook to ask Republicans to reconsider their efforts to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, also known as ObamaCare. "I recognize that repealing and replacing the Affordable Care Act has become a core tenet of the Republican Party," Obama wrote. "Still, I hope that our senators, many of whom I know well, step back and measure what’s really at stake, and consider that the rationale for action, on health care or any other issue, must be something more than simply undoing something that Democrats did." He argued that the Republican health care bill

In a year that he would like to forget, which included his acrimonious divorce to Amber Heard, Johnny Depp appeared at a Q&A at the new Cinemageddon stage at Glastonbury. Introducing his 2004 film The Libertine, about a 17th-century poet who notoriously drank himself to an early death, the 54-year-old chose to discuss American politics. "I think [Donald] Trump needs help," he said. "There are a lot of dark places he could go." He added: "I´m not insinuating anything - by the way this will be in the press and it will be horrible - but when was the last

Most illegal immigrants who pay taxes have stolen someone else’s legal identity, and the IRS doesn’t do a very good job of letting those American citizens and legal immigrants know they’re being impersonated, the tax agency’s inspector general said in a new report released Thursday. The theft creates major problems for the American citizens and legal foreign workers whose identities are stolen, and who have to deal with explaining money they never earned. But the IRS only manages to identify half of the potentially 1.4 million people likely affected by the fraud in 2015, the Treasury Inspector General for Tax

The deadly collision between a U.S. destroyer and a container ship June 17 took place while the freighter was on autopilot, according to Navy officials. The Philippines-flagged cargo ship ACX Crystal was under control of a computerized navigation system that was steering and guiding the container vessel, according to officials familiar with preliminary results of an ongoing Navy investigation. Investigators so far found no evidence the collision was deliberate. Nevertheless, an accident during computerized navigation raises the possibility the container ship´s computer system could have been hacked and the ship deliberately steered into the USS Fitzgerald, an Arleigh Burke-class guided missile destroyer.

President Donald Trump has said he will pursue legislation that would bar immigrants from being eligible for welfare for at least five years. At a rally in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, last night he said ´the time has come´ for ´new immigration rules´ that would require those seeking admission to the country to be able to support themselves financially and would bar the use of welfare for a period of at least five years. He said his administration would be ´putting in legislation to that effect very shortly.´ It is unclear, however, how Trump´s proposal would change the current situation.

Attorneys for Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl want to ask potential jurors in a court-martial for their views on President Trump and whether they voted for him, according to news reports Wednesday. At a pretrial hearing Wednesday, Berdahl´s lawyers submitted the questions to the judge in the case, out of concern that jurors may be swayed by negative comments Trump made in the presidential campaign about the soldier. "The principal issue has to do with ensuring we are able to identify people who have been nominated to be on the court-martial panel — the jury — who are not in a

President Obama has been out of office only a few months. But he might have both a street and an L.A. freeway named after him soon. Los Angeles City Council President Herb Wesson has proposed renaming Rodeo Road in southwest L.A. “Obama Boulevard” in honor of the president. Wesson noted that Obama held a campaign rally at Rancho Cienega Park on Rodeo Road when running for president and that the area already has streets named after presidents (Washington, Jefferson, Adams). In May, a plan to name a stretch of the 134 Freeway after Obama moved forward with approval from the

Ex-Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson’s testimony Wednesday should mark the definitive end of “Russia hacked the election” hysteria. Too bad it took so long to get to this point. Johnson told the House Intelligence Committee outright that the Russians failed to alter “ballots, ballot counts or reporting of election results.” Yes, it’s clear Russia (with Vladimir Putin’s full approval) orchestrated cyberattacks designed to influence the 2016 contest, and also pushed fake news. But the hack, and release via WikiLeaks, etc., of Democratic e-mails produced nothing game-changing. The biggest impact was to confirm the obvious: The Democratic National Committee favored Hillary Clinton from the
