President Trump has told friends he wants to start a digital media company to clobber Fox News and undermine the conservative-friendly network, sources tell Axios. The state of play: Some Trump advisers think Fox News made a mistake with an early call (seconded by AP) of President-elect Biden's win in Arizona. That enraged Trump, and gave him something tangible to use in his attacks on the network. "He plans to wreck Fox. No doubt about it," said a source with detailed knowledge of Trump's intentions. With loyal viewers and longtime dominance, Fox Corp. CEO Lachlan Murdoch said  Correction:


Excellent start, but he needs to be carried by all cable and satellite as well

Axios is just making this stuff up. President Trump is going to have a full plate the next four years.

Trump doesn't need to wreck Fox. Fox has been doing that on their own for 4 years. I've only occasionally watched it myself over the past few years and only because it's less egregious than the others.

When they hired the woman who gave Hillary the list of questions to be asked in the Presidential debate I knew that Fox was going down the tubes. Why would any station hire a person with zero integrity, a cheat. It was enough they had Juan who is nothing but a Democrat puppet, To add a person who was a former Co-chair of the DNC and once was a contributor to CNN and who admitted to being a cheat . To hire Donna Brazille is about as low as any so called News channel can get.

I HATE WRITING THIS, but I once in a while think to myself "It may better if Trump does not get a second term because his enemies may try (or will) assassinate him." Assassination it a logical progression of their insane, unhinged hate. Their hate that has no basis in reason. The more he benefits the United States the more their hate grows. People with such hate are NOT beyond killing. U.S Presidents and other leaders who have immense political power (kings, czars, etc.) have been assassinate for less. I worry about the future of our great nation.

If some of the deeper pocket republicans weren't so cowardly, starting a new network would be an excellent idea. Or maybe join with one already in play like OAN and put them on steroids for competing with the others. We need an actual voice in media, and our side needs to stop being so afraid.

When I saw Donna Brazille’s fat face on one night, I turned off FOX and won’t ever turn it back on! Newsmax is all I need! Hannity and Laura can stuff it!

I don’t believe this report. If the President is re-elected after all, this business involvement won’t be allowed. If he isn’t re-elected, but hopes to run again in 2024, he knows how petty this move would appear, and he knows that in the long-run it would do more good to depend on his allies at Fox to turn things around. Never underestimate how much influence the top hosts could have on management over the next 4 years.

71 million voted for Trump. FOX viewers, 3 million at the most, 500K now. Do the math. TNC(Trump News Channel), the real news, might not be a bad idea.

Trump is the only real star that Fox News has got. Trump is the anchor 365/24/7. Either Trump is on, or Fox is talking about Trump, because they have nothing else. Fox Business has Lou Dobbs and Maria Bartiromo.

A lot of people seemed to have been asleep in history class. IF this coup is successful there are NO plans for the future that will look anything like the western world we are used to. A biden administration will destroy every freedom needed to keep absolute dictatorial control from ruining our lives. Trump won't be running any networks, he will be imprisoned as a lesson for all of us who hesitate to follow the evil that is sitting in the warm up chair for the W.H.

DJT will do what he wants to. I’d like to see him start a network or purchase one...Newsmax...and just like a MLB GM put together a slate of future candidates that meet his/our approval and give Trump Nation an outlet for hope. DJT is a lion but he isn’t Superman—maybe he is—but he is a media genius for sure and his best bet is to control his/our destiny with a daily public forum, some might call a government in waiting. 73,000,000 angry voters is one heckuva base.

One thing is sure and that is that no matter how this current mess plays out Trump is not going away. Setting up a rival to FOX and wrecking them would be right up his alley. Add to that the fact that such a creation would become THE media voice of the right and the GOP will find itself bending the knee just to get air time (just as they have been doing with FOX). If Trump were to partner up with NEWSMAX or OAN or just start his own he will bring with him a loyal following of not just millions but tens of millions. He will own the GOP and make life miserable for the leftists.

With politics, sometimes it's OK to lean back and relax. Or to the side. Or even straight forward until you bump your head on the podium. A new satirical ad spoofs the hit 1980s movie “Weekend at Bernie’s” at the expense of former Vice President Joe Biden, the 2020 Democratic presidential nominee. The ad shows two young aides through the night with a lifeless replica of the Democratic nominee for president. Correction*

As we reported two days ago, Joe Biden completely made no sense when he was trying to explain the Wuhan coronavirus relief bill. It was really bad and it explains why they’re afraid to have him deliver an address to Congress or do any kind of a real solo press conference, because at this point they have to be afraid this is all going to fall apart if he does anything live and this all becomes too obvious to the American people. But there’s only so long that they can hold this off. And it’s getting worse, as video today revealed. Biden was holding an event to announce the nomination

Democrat Senator Joe Manchin (WV) appears to have started to shift his views on the filibuster with remarks that he made on two news shows on Sunday morning.The shift from Manchin comes after he has repeatedly stated that he would not vote to end the filibuster, despite pressure from the far-Left. During the interviews on Sunday, Manchin repeatedly claimed that he was not open to ending the filibuster because he did not want to strip the minority party of their power in the Senate, but signaled that he was open to changing it.Fox News host Chris Wallace asked Manchin if he would consider “reforming the filibuster” if “Republicans

Nancy Pelosi’s top priority is to turn America into a one-party nation ruled by Democrats. Her bill HR 1 trashes the U.S. Constitution in an attempt to rig the system and make it virtually impossible to elect a Republican president or Congress again. It’s a power grab. The bill eviscerates state voting laws and forces all the states to conform to a set of rules that includes automatic voter registration. Anyone who goes to a DMV or applies for food stamps, Medicaid or other social services, or attends a public college will be automatically enrolled to vote. Noncitizens are obligated to identify themselves and opt out,

I keep calling him general, but my, my—the guy who runs that outfit over there,” Biden said.(Snip) Earlier at the event, Biden mentioned the Defense Department leader by his name, “Secretary Austin,” while appearing to read from a teleprompter.

I’m probably second to none in my dislike for Meghan Markle. There’s something unattractive about a mature woman marrying into the British Royal family with one of the world’s most expensive weddings, hanging out with the Queen, living in insane luxury…and then whining non-stop about the horror of her life. There’s something even less appealing when that woman accuses the Royal family of race hatred. And the problem is that, when it comes to that left-wing diva, Meghan Markle, it’s hard to believe most of what she says. After weeks of hype, CBS finally televised Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s interview with Oprah.

Without question, the vast majority of Americans who support former President Donald Trump were angry and frustrated throughout 2020 passed with barely a mention of then-U.S. Attorney John Durham’s criminal investigation into the FBI’s fraudulent “Russiagate” counterterrorism operation directed at his 2016 campaign.In the weeks before the November election, word got out that then-Attorney General William Barr wasn’t going to announce any indictments or even a report on Durham’s investigation because he did not want to influence the outcome.So far, in fact, the only indictment to come out of the Durham probe is that of former FBI lawyer Kevin Clinesmith, who essentially got a slap on the wrist

Appearing on Yahoo!

The Washington Times in 2019 first reported Democrats’ bid to strip the longtime FBI director’s name from the bureau’s headquarters. Mr. Cohen said the impetus to revive the bid is the new movie, “Judas and the Black Messiah.” The movie details

But somehow we missed it.” Tom Stoppard The millions of Americans who were paying attention throughout the 2020 election campaign all became painfully aware of the fact that Joe Biden’s cognitive abilities were slipping and slipping fast. His wife, as the person closest to him, should have been the one to call the campaign quits in order to reduce stress on the man. Instead, apparently so anxious to become the First Lady by any means necessary, Mrs. Biden continued to push her failing husband’s campaign forward as if he were mentally qualified.
