Fox News reportedly
considering top executive
firings over their
post-election ratings collapse

Original Article

If Fox News wants to restore its cable news ratings dominance, changes will have to be visible far lower in its organization than what is being reported. Though I was angry over its election night coverage and have been dismayed at the behavior of a number of its on-air personalities, I take no joy in the ratings crisis that seems to be engulfing Fox News. For all its faults, its reach, resources, and stable of outstanding talent like Tucker Carlson make it an essential voice

The 'cure' is simple. Stop stabbing the President in the back. Even after Jan 20, Donald trump will continue to be the true and legitimate leader of the nation. This must be reflected in your broadcasts. Otherwise, forget about it!

Good luck with that. Any amount of firing will not bring back the ratings. Conser have moved on from a CNN- wannabe channel

Get rid of the liberal/socialist broadcasters. The ones that slip in little jabs at conservatives and Republican ideas, like Neil Cavuto and a number of others. If we wanted a socialist bent on our views, we'd watch almost any other network. Also, get rid of the number of women on air and writing copy. Women are the reason this country is so hyper and sensitive about every little so called slight, and also the reason this country is moving left. It's all about feelings for them. There are exceptions of course, like Laura Ingram, but the women are the ones starting and instigating trouble both in politics and on the street. Stop pandering to them.

FOX needs to do the same thing as the House and Senate: Scrub out all the liars, cheats, and anti-Constitution people! We want honest, truthful reporting. Leave the bias to the non-news shows, where it belongs.

Whoever was in charge and made the decision to make Fox News ccn lite made a colossal mistake. Did they really think we would just ignore the leftists they put on like, donna brazille and that woman who swallowed a cup of gravel, Jessica tarlov and continue to watch without complaint? And did they really think all the leftists/communists would start to watch Fox News? They should have taken a look at what happened to the Dixie Chicks.

Fox News will never come back until they get rid of at least 50% of their on-air personalities and contributors, as well as 100% of their top brass. Even then it will take years to get back what they've lost. The well has been thoroughly poisoned. BTW, do they have proof readers at the American Thinker anymore?

Why does anyone bother with Fox News? It has shown to be unreliable, no better than its liberal competition. Why would anyone trust these chameleons? I turned them off years ago, tired of the same dead horse whippings nightly by loudmouthed hosts who invited second-rate experts on as contributors. And we now see Seb Gorka, John Bolton, Mad Dog Mattis, and others for what they were and are.

Personally I detest opinions, just report the news accurately and un-biased, I am quite able to form my own opinions. I detest the suppositions often added to commentary. I also detest when they bring on excellent professionals and then begin to interrupt and talk over them. Lou Dobbs and Sean Hannity are the 2 that come to mind and because of that, I no longer tune in to their shows. DONE with FOX.

Too bad about AT going off the rails. They could have had so much fun with Discovery required before trial. But they caved, then one writer proceeded to throw readers under the bus by calling them misinformed and without a clue. No way to walk that back Lifson and Widburg. No Way.

1) The constant "panel" or "expert" analysis of every news story is tiresome. There is enough news to just report it without any explanation or analysis by "experts." I thought the slogan was, "We report, you decide." 2) Giving a platform to people like Harf and Brazile, who spew bogus fabrications from the latest leftist talking point sheets, and allowing these obvious attempts to shape the conversation to go unchallenged make shows unwatchable. 3) Cutting off guests or live coverage of speeches when the on-camera talent doesn't like what they are hearing puts the host above the viewers, which is not a recipe for success.

Paul Ryan is a serious part of the problem, brought in by Lochlan Murdoch. But Lochlan Murdoch literally owns Fox News, and HE is the root cause. I doubt that they are going to fire the owner.

Fox is a business that sells ads. If the people buying the ads don't like your product they stop buying ads and you go broke. The problem is not Fox but the globalist corporations that are ultimately funding the media companies and lobby the politicians. The real secret is to find sponsors that are committed to defeating The Big Lie of the Biden administration. Its all about the money and Amazon, Alphabet, and Facebook were in on the steal. They're not going to undermine what they paid for anytime soon. There's just too much money to be made from Chinese slave labor.

You start by firing Chris Wallace, Neal Cavuto, Sandra Smith, Steve Ducey, Brian Kilmeade, Jedidiah Bila, and on and on from there. Salvage the little talent you have left and move back to the right. Otherwise, run infomercials, it will be more profitable because we will all be somewhere else, which is why your ratings are in the dumpster.

#33, I don't think so. Fox News was spun off of the Fox TV/movie business when it was sold to Disney. Disney quickly erased the "Fox" name, and that group is now "20th Century". Lachlan Murdoch took over ownership/control of Fox News as a separate entity and hired Paul Ryan to run Fox News (into the ground). At this point, I suspect that Ryan sees his job of destroying Fox News as 'mission accomplished' and he will be "fired" and laugh all the way to the Swiss bank with tens of millions for his assassination job. I suspect it was a temp position from day one. Set the demolition charges, blow huge holes in the viewership and let Fox News sink, after getting on your Golden Lifeboat. There are still backs to be stabbed elsewhere, I'm sure. Ryan is an evil person, one of thousands who used to pretend to be "conservatives" and have been proven to be only interested in destroying the USA from within, for money.

#41, according to only Lachlan controls/owns Fox. The other son, James, resigned some time ago "over the right wing tilt" of the news business. Apparently Lachlan has taken that resignation to heart, and decided to make Fox just another CNN/MSNBC left wing echo chamber. It is reported that Lachlan's wife is an extreme leftist, no doubt helping things along down the path to destruction.

Fox decided to stand with everything that is wrong with Washington, and trash Trump like the rest of the 'news' networks. No thanks. They helped get rid of Trump, and now think people will fall for their 'rehabilitation'. Not going to happen. We know what Fox stands for, and it turns out they are just like the rest of the media, but learned they can milk Conservatives and Republicans for big bucks.

Fox News lied and deceived it's viewers when they were posing as "Fair and Balanced" and when in reality all they were doing was pandering to us for high ratings so they can boost their income. Fox News is not learning the harsh lesson that Trust once destroyed can never be restored. Any makeover will be pure window dressing in an effort to get us "suckers" once again buying their particular brand of snake oil. It doesn't matter who they bring in at this point to overhaul their commie lineup because Trust is gone for good. They forgot the old adage of first time you fool us shame on you, second time shame on us. Lifson at American Thinker just shut off all comments at his so-called conservative blog without a clear explanation probably because he didn't like the comments directed at himself and some of his Never Trumper writers and please Lifson, spare me the statements about how Tucker Carlson not being heard would hurt conservativism. When the time came to stand up and fight the election coup by the communist death democrats Carlson, Tick Tock Hannity, Ingraham all ducked for cover and went soft on upon orders of their communist masters running Fox. Paycheck triumphs over Patriotism with this trio. The only one with the stones to fight the coup were Lou and Maria. Tucker Carlson is nothing more than a huckster and snake oil salesman par excellence. By the way, that wrinkled old flatulence Murdoch having to come back in and take control is a classic example of the punk sons destroying in a very short time the business he had built up over the years. The loss of Fox is a good thing. It was stealth propaganda for the democrat communists and this particular type of corruption needs to be ruthlessly weeded out and destroyed from our culture. Good Riddance.

Fire Chris Matthews, Maria Harf, Neil Cavuto, Donna Brazille and every other smarmy TDS-news reader and opinionist. Keep Juan Williams because we need one example of the stupid things that Dims say. That still won't be enough because Fox slapped their supporters in the face on election night and it hasn't been better since. We have moved on to real news sources, who break news and give us a mix of news and opinion. I'll even read Catherine Herridge, even though she is at CBS. I've moved to Real America's Voice, NewsMax, Gab, Telegram and the Brave browser. I am trying my best not to support the #GAFTA OligOpoly.

Nothing can save Fox except 24 hours non-stop of Tucker Carlson until he sells out. No way Fox is going to come back. Laura Ingraham is a poor interviewer with questions then talks over her guest when they answer and Sean Hannity motor mouth judo boy is just too much for me to listen to him. Nope Fox's choice was made they blew it when they went CNN lite. When Rachial Maddow out does your best you're are doomed. I guess Fox thought they would gain an entire liberal dumb audience to replace the Trump supporters and the plan didn't turn out right. Adios Fox but NewsMax is refreshing and new kid on the block.

From AT re having to discontinue comments: It is news to almost nobody who reads American Thinker that a political witch hunt is underway. Parties in and out of government are looking for excuses to suppress and destroy voices that oppose the left. Because AT lacks the ability to monitor comments in real time, and because our position that comments are a forum, not something we publish, is being called into question, we can no longer publish comments. We take this action with a heavy heart. CTH was deplatformed because of the things posted by some of those who commented on the threads, calling for civil war, shooting, hanging , ropes and lamp posts, standing people against walls, locking and loading, and assorted mayhem, which are found on almost every forum. Now the bloggers themselves are being held responsible for what their commenters are posting. How many of you would really want to be monetarily responsible for that or to lose your blog investment because of laptop commandos posting calls that could clearly be defined as incitement? We used to have thinking posters here. Some now sound like a very selfish lot. Perhaps they are seriously underinformed about what is going on right now...

#47, you are misinformed and uninformed about Am Thinker shutting down comments. It had absolutely nothing to do with Am Thinker not wanting to hear criticism of their work. Again, Am Thinker was forced by their internet providers and people who could shut them off from all access to the web, that unless they provided real time monitoring of their comments, and were willing to erase and block "certain comments" that their internet access provider did not approve of, the site would be shut down totally. The Conservative Treehouse had a similar problem, and their internet provider (and software provider) DID shut them down, forced them off. Fortunately they found another provider, and managed to salvage years of content and convert to the new formatting software and are back up an running. Am Thinker had no choice in the shutting off of comments - again, external, leftist forces nibbling off chunks of our free speech. ALL conservative information outlets are under attack by the leftists who largely run the internet. I wonder how long we will be permitted this forum.

When Fox stabbed Trump in the back, they stabbed me and 75 million other legitimate voters in the back. I'm not going back. They can beg, they can crawl, they can grovel, but I'd rather see them go bankrupt. And most of them also personally go bankrupt financially, as they already are logically.

The ownership and the Board remains on the side of DS and democrats so most of us are not fooled one bit. They are desperate for the appearance of being the channel they once were under Roger Ailes. I heard Hannity on his radio show last week complimenting by name the most offensive folks on FOX. He said Donna Brazile, Rove, Juan and Geraldo were all fabulous people and FOX needn’t change a thing. FOX jumped in and helped msm, GOPe and Democrats smear and abuse PDJT for four years. I enjoy my new outlets for getting news. Patriots do not need FOX.

The silver spooned leftists thought they were going to somehow educate the unwashed public. LOL, oh those wacky kids. The doofuses had no idea how stupid they really are. They take a following that they detest and think they can force feed their neocommie nonsense without anyone noticing. Then they slowly realize they messed up. Oh, we are really going to change things now. Sure, kids. The fact is, instead of listening to your audience and trying to grow it, you spit in their face and thought that somehow the rabid left would jump on board. You lost your core audience and they will NOT be back, ever. You will not attract anyone from the left because they have insane outlets that feed them already and they are totally conditioned to mock the Faux/Fox name for the rest of their stupid lives. You destroyed the golden goose daddy gave you. At this rate even the many other millions you have, might evaporate. I think you really have it in you to lose it all.

As a Constitutional Conservative (not a republican or gop) there is an old saying..."Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice...shame on me." Fox News is dead to me and no matter who or what they say, the management at Fox News were all too happy to show off their hard leftward direction. I was there in the very beginning, and I was true to all of the 'talking heads,' but no more. Sean likes to hear his own voice, talks over guests and basicly says the same thing on every segment. I think someone got to Tucker, as he has changed his tune about the election, and the only one that is still breathing fire and brimstone, is the forever gracious Mark Levin. And Mark's Sunday broadcast is the only one that I tape and watch later so as not to give Fox News a click on the viewing meter. And those of us that are Patriots and loves America, will never come back to the back stabbing fools that run Fox. You can only screw us over for so long before we say....Aloha. MSgt USAF (ret)

Watch TVG horse racing. Forget any of the "news" stations. No sham politics and opinions to raise your blood pressure. Do a little betting and you might get your moneys' worth!

I don't want to hear baloney about comments being shut down because a few idiots call for war or say someone should hang. The Left ALWAYS and more often churns out violent comments much worse than even the alt-right idiots do. The left is allowed to say ANYTHING they want. Only the right gets shut down. Even Twitter and Fakebook don't silence leftists and other radicals who incite violence...and they DO monitor comments.

Two executives involved in the early call of Arizona for Joe Biden on Election Night, angering many conservatives, are no longer employed at the cable network whose ratings took a subsequent nosedive. Both have been lightning rods for conservatives since the election. The Associated Press reports: Bill Sammon, senior vice president and managing editor at Fox’s Washington bureau, announced his retirement to staff members on Monday. On Tuesday, as part of a restructuring of Fox’s digital operations, politics editor Chris Stirewalt was let go. Fox’s decision to call Arizona for Biden took the network’s anchors by surprise and infuriated the White House, which believed the determination was premature.

Demonstrations and riots will not stop with the Biden/Harris administration. They present a real danger to government as we now know it. (snip) Progressives have fostered these protest organizations. Now that they are in power will they be able to control them? They may find that they have created a Frankenstein's monster. There are many reasons why the demonstrations will not be easy to stop. Social injustice and police brutality are only a small part of the reason for demonstrating. Many people riot to escape boredom
The Glass-Jawed Party 29 replies
Posted by Magnante 1/20/2021 4:38:20 AM Post Reply
Somebody needs to explain to me why conservatives are so defeatist. It never fails. A setback occurs, and rather than rolling their sleeves and getting to work, they collapse into bawling, whining puddles. They’re like a glass-jawed boxer who take a hit and goes down immediately. But instead of hauling themselves back to their feet and slugging away, they just lie there, sobbing, “It’s over… there’s no point… wave goodbye to Lady Liberty for me…” There’s nothing new about this. During the Obama epoch it was eight years of, “Obama is eight feet tall. Obama can walk through walls. He can see you and you can’t see him…”

Those of you who are reading this post are the type of people who pay attention to things. That’s why you already know that 26,000 National Guard troops drawn from all over America and from Puerto Rico, have assembled in Washington, D.C., in advance of Joe Biden’s inauguration on Wednesday. (That’s about three divisions worth of troops.) But have you given serious thought to what the troops’ presence means? (snip) I’m inclined to agree with Tucker Carlson’s brilliant Monday night opening monologue regarding the deeper meaning behind a massive D.C. lockdown
Fascism is Back 16 replies

Fascists are back in a very big way, and they are not who legacy media say they are. They are not who big tech says they are. They are not who the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and their minions say they are. The CCP itself is fascist, not communist, and has been fascist since Deng Xiaoping. The distinction is important, and without that distinction, it is vastly more difficult to deal with the most dangerous threats to freedom here and overseas. Fascism is far more resilient than communism. It is the wedding of markets and totalitarian governance, an attractive prospect for many oligarchs

The last time I checked, this was the USA. A free country. A country where, when mobs of thugs were destroying Minneapolis, Portland, Kenosha, and other cities, the media reacted in horror at the suggestion that a few National Guard troops might help return calm for the residents trying to live peacefully in their homes, do business as much as possible in the circumstances, and stay afloat during a pandemic. As Portland’s Mayor Ted Wheeler said when offered federal troops to quell the violence, “This is not the America we want.” The very idea is repugnant!

Pick your favorite sports analogy. President Trump is at bat, bottom of the ninth inning, two outs, full count, bases loaded, down by three runs. Or he is at the poker table, across from the entire Washington DC ruling class, all the chips now on the table. Is he holding a royal flush or a pair of threes? We will know in a few days how the game ends, as either the “great awakening” or the “great reset”. It’s a binary choice with one winner and one loser, no ties or extra innings. This will be one of the most consequential weeks in human history.
Pelosi’s Third Impeachment Folly 26 replies

Does the President have a right to free speech? Josh Blackman, a constitutional law professor writing on The Volokh Conspiracy, suggests he certainly does and that his speech on January 6 is a weak reed (as was Nancy Pelosi’s past impeachment folly) on which to gain a conviction in the Senate. (Remember an impeachment vote in the House is basically an indictment with no effect unless the Senate finds guilt after a trial.) Looking at the most analogous case, the impeachment of President Andrew Jackson, he finds plenty of reason for senators to vote against it.

If Fox News wants to restore its cable news ratings dominance, changes will have to be visible far lower in its organization than what is being reported. Though I was angry over its election night coverage and have been dismayed at the behavior of a number of its on-air personalities, I take no joy in the ratings crisis that seems to be engulfing Fox News. For all its faults, its reach, resources, and stable of outstanding talent like Tucker Carlson make it an essential voice
Joe Biden’s Weird Version
of Goebbels’ Big Lie

At his press conference on July 8, Joe Biden offered a rather bizarre interpretation of history, in which he likened Ted Cruz and his challenge to some electoral votes to Nazi Propaganda Minister Joseph Goebbels and the “Big Lie.” Biden illustrated his point by referring to the Allied bombing of Dresden in February 1945 in which, he said, “250 or 2,500 people” were killed. (snip) As an historian I am flummoxed at Biden’s illustration of Dresden as a Big Lie. (snip) Except the Nazi Big Lie was not about Dresden. Rather it was about the British and American bombing of Hamburg in 1943.

WASHINGTON — Pennsylvania Health Secretary Rachel Levine, who is openly transgender, has been nominated to become assistant secretary of health under President-elect Joe Biden’s administration, The Associated Press is reporting. (Tweet) With the nomination, Levine, who has served in her current position since 2017, could soon make history: If confirmed, she would become the first openly transgender person to receive U.S. Senate confirmation for a federal post, according to the AP.

Et tu, Mitch McConnell?Just when Washington has a chance to turn the page, fresh signs emerged Tuesday that the past is not yet past. It is almost certain now that the Senate will hold an impeachment trial of President Trump next week.Even worse, it looks probable he will be convicted of a single charge stemming from the Capitol invasion. The history-making event got the green light from McConnell on his last day as Senate majority leader. Speaking on the Senate floor Tuesday, McConnell said of the Jan. 6 incident: “The mob was fed lies. They were provoked by the president and other powerful people

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is explicitly pointing his finger at President Donald Trump for helping to spur the attack on the Capitol by the outgoing president’s supporters. The Kentucky Republican said Tuesday on the Senate floor, “The mob was fed lies. They were provoked by the president and other powerful people.” McConnell spoke six days after the Democratic-led House impeached Trump on charges of inciting the Jan. 6 attack. A Senate trial on whether to convict Trump and perhaps bar him from ever again holding federal office is expected to begin in coming days. After years of supporting Trump

Ex-U.S. Attorney General Bill Barr said Tuesday that President Trump’s false claims that the election was stolen “precipitated the riots” at the Capitol. In his first television interview since his ouster and break from Trump, Barr blamed the violent riots on the weeks-long effort to cast doubt on President-elect Joe Biden’s victory in the November vote. “That was the thing that precipitated the riots on the Hill’,” Barr told the British ITV network. Barr stopped short of accusing his ex-boss of inciting the mob of supporters, but he didn’t refute it either. “I’ll leave it to the people who are looking
