Fox News Bans Rudy Giuliani and Son From Appearing for Several Months…He Found Out on Eve of 9/11…Pete Hegseth Called to Apologize for Him Being “Bumped”

rudy-giuliani-donald-trump-a0327630-ce86-4edc-b902-d644d75b96d3 (2)

Newsmax.com reports that

Rudy Giuliani has been banned from appearing on Fox News for several months, and only learned of the “from the top” order on the eve of the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

Son Andrew Giuliani, a New York gubernatorial candidate, has also been banned.

And former NYPD Commsissioner Bernie Kerik, a close adviser to Giuliani, is rarely booked on Fox News, Politico Playbook reports.

Rudy Giuliani and Kerik were prominent New York City leaders on 9/11 as mayor and NYPD commissioner.

“They’re not doing us any favors,” a Trump aide told Politico.

The rejection on hosting the Giulianis “comes from the top,” sources told Politico.

Fox began distancing itself from Giuliani shortly after Trump left office and in the wake of Dominion Voting Systems’ lawsuit against the network. The suit cited Giuliani’s appearances and statements made on Fox in its $1.6 billion defamation case.

Newsmax was also sued by Dominion over its election coverage, but the network continues to have Giuliani, his son, and Kerik on as guests.

“Rudy is really hurt because he did a big favor for Rupert [Murdoch, founder of Fox News’ parent company],” a source close to Giuliani told the outlet. “He was instrumental in getting Fox on Time Warner so it could be watched in New York City.”

Rudy Giuliani learned of being bumped from Fox News on the eve of this 9/11 anniversary, with “Fox & Friends” host Pete Hegseth having to call to apologize for being cut from the show, according to the report.

Kerik was reportedly also un-booked from “Fox & Friends” on 9/11.

“I could not have been more disappointed with the Fox coverage on the 20th anniversary of Sept. 11,” Kerik said in a statement to Politico. “Then they chose to intentionally ignore Mayor Giuliani who was, and who, according to their own coverage for the last two decades, was America’s hero on the day and in the aftermath of the attack.

“Regardless of reasoning, I think this was another demonstration of Fox’s cowering to the far left.”

A source close to Giuliani tells Newsmax that the former mayor and his circle view their banishment from Fox as part of the network’s strategy to reduce and restrict Trump’s influence in the Republican party.

Marshall McLuhan once wrote that

The media is the message.

Well, in the past couple of decades, the Main Stream Media has become not just the message, but also judge, jury, and political executioner.

And, unfortunately, thanks to the influence of the Liberal daughter-in-laws of Rupert Murdoch, Fox News began overcompensating to the Left in keeping its programming “fair and balanced”.

Daily diatribes from Juan Williams, the now-departed Shep Smith, Donna Brazile, and Chris Wallace made me more than once turn the channel to reruns of…well…just about anything.

Then, came the night of the 2020 Presidential Election.

Fox News stripped away its veneer of “Fair and Balanced” to join CNN and MSNBC as servants of the Democratic Party.

That was not a very smart move.

And, they have been making mind-blowingly stupid moves ever since.

However, this one is the cherry on top of an ice cream sundae of Cable News Channel Programming Stupidity.

I’m so old that I remember when Fox News Channel was not a member of the Main Stream Media.

According to the Old Testament Book of Proverbs,

“Pride goeth before destruction and an haughty spirit before a fall.”

That scripture has never been truer than in the case of Fox News.

Americans have noticed that Fox News has been traveling in a Liberal direction ever since Rupert Murdoch left the running of the channel to his sons.

There are more Liberal Pundits and Anchors on Fox News than there have ever been in its history.

And, those who were not known until recently to be Liberal seem to be relishing the opportunity to drive away the audience which made Fox News Channel number one in the ratings for many, many years.

What is maddening to me is the fact that Former President Trump went out of his way to be kind to them, helping their ratings over his time in office through live phone calls and exclusive interviews, including one morning when he made a spontaneous appearance on “Fox and Friends”, consenting to a live on-the-spot interview with Steve Doocy.

So, why has Fox News repeatedly bitten the hand that feeds them?

Poor management.

The change in political viewpoint at Fox News has to be the worst marketing decision since “New Coke”.

And, just like New Coke, it has left a bitter taste in the mouths of millions of Americans.

So, are the powers-that-be at FNC bright enough to apologize to the millions of Americans who made them number one in the cable news ratings for years and made them all wealthy in the process?

Heck no.

They just keep doubling down on stupid, like AOC at a MENSA Meeting.

Fox News not only jumped the shark…they continue to gleeful feed the crocodile known as the Democratic Party , along with the “Never-Trumper” Wing of the Republican Party, hoping that it will eat them last.

Their arrogance is exceeded only by their stupidity.

Until He Comes,

KJ

Biden CNN Town Hall Comes in Last in Ratings Behind Fox News and MSNBC…And He Received 81 Million Votes?

See the source image

FoxNews.com reports that

CNN’s heavily promoted town hall event with President Biden failed to resonate with Americans on Wednesday night, as it got thumped by Fox News and even finished with a smaller audience than MSNBC.

The CNN Biden town hall, moderated by Don Lemon, averaged only 1.5 million viewers from 8-9:30 p.m. ET, while Fox News averaged 2.7 million viewers during the same time period. MSNBC averaged 1.6 million sets of eyeballs, which pushed CNN’s chat with the president to last place among relevant cable news stations.

Fox News beat CNN by a staggering 83 percent during the Biden town hall with regular programing on “Tucker Carlson Tonight” and a special edition of “Hannity” that featured Florida Republicans Gov. Ron DeSantis, Sen. Marco Rubio, Rep. Maria Salazar and Miami Mayor Francis Suarez.

Every Fox News town hall event over the past five years outdrew Wednesday’s CNN event with Biden.

CNN’s town hall also failed to beat Fox News among the key demographic of adults age 25-54. CNN averaged 306,000 demo viewers during the event, compared to 464,000 for Fox News.

CNN didn’t just finish last during the Biden town hall. The liberal network also finished behind Fox News and MSNBC during the primetime hours of 8-11 p.m. ET.

Fox News averaged 2.3 million primetime viewers and MSNBC finished second with 1.6 million. Despite President Biden appearing on the network, CNN settled for only 1.3 million primetime viewers.

While Biden failed to lift the struggling network from last place, it did helped Lemon surpass the one-million viewer threshold that he fails to meet on a regular basis.

One interesting moment that was seen by CNN’s tiny audience was when Lemon referred to Biden as “the big guy” during the presidential town hall.

“You’ve been the big guy for six months now in the White House. Can you take us behind the scenes, something that was extraordinary or unusual that happened that stands out to you?” Lemon asked.

“The big guy” was notably used as a reference to Biden in a leaked email thread allegedly involving Joe’s son Hunter Biden making a deal with a Chinese energy firm. In 2020, Fox News confirmed the authenticity of an email dated May 13, 2017 that detailed a discussion for “remuneration packages” for people involved in a business deal. A section of the email contained a propriety split reading “10 held by H for the big guy?” which was later confirmed to reference Joe Biden.

Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-N.Y., remarked on this connection as well, tweeting, “Wow. Even Don Lemon knows Joe Biden is the “Big Guy”! #HuntersEmails.”

All data is courtesy of early Nielsen Media Research

Americans have been fed a load of crap ever since the Democrats “chose” Biden as their Presidential Candidate.

There is no way that this demented old man could have been elected in an honest election.

Back in December of 2020, Newsmax.com reported the following about a recent McLaughlin Poll…

There is one stunning result in the entire poll: Americans believe there was a serious vote fraud problem in the last election.

Although Election Day is over a month ago, when we asked — “Do you believe there was election and voter fraud in the presidential election between Joe Biden and Donald Trump back in November?” — the plurality of voters, 46%, said yes, with only 45% saying no.

Among American voters the majority is not convinced that voter fraud did not occur in their Presidential election. It is important to note that the poll model reflects the national popular vote of 51% Biden, 47% Trump.

It is concerning that in this poll where a majority of voted for Biden, they still can’t say it was an honest election.

As our presidential electors went this week to cast their votes, almost half the voters said there was clear election and voter fraud.

Since Election Day, and despite media spin the election fraud story is a big nothing, belief among voters of serious vote fraud has grown.

Since the obviously-rigged outcome of 2020 Presidential Election, I have been asking myself,

“Self, did the Democrats actually believe that the entire country was going to come together under dementia-riddled Joe Biden and “Heels Up” Harris after they committed the biggest case of Election Fraud in American History?

Yes, boys and girls. They did.

The Democrats believe that they are the smartest people in any room that they walk into.

They also believe that Traditional American Faith and Values are passé and the mark of the uneducated “Bitter clingers” who “cling to their guns and their Bibles” to quote Former President Barack Hussein Obama (mm mmm mmmm).

And, while the Democrats do not respect average Americans at all, they did realize whom we were voting for on November 3rd and it wasn’t their candidate, Joe Biden.

That is why they came up with the intricate plan to steal, or rig, the 2020 Presidential Election.

The problem which they still face, even if the Trump Team is unable to reverse what has happened and restore the stolen victory to President Trump, is the fact as McLaughlin explains in the about article, is that a majority of Americans still believe that the election was not conducted in an honest fashion and do not believe that Joe Biden is a legitimate President.

And, only a minority of Americans believe that the country is headed in the right direction.

Not only that, but the majority of Americans still prefer free market capitalism to big government socialism 58% to 16%

Which means that “Democratic Socialism” and the Democratic Party itself are not as popular as the Main Stream Media wants you to believe them to be.

If fact, just the opposite.

That is why CNN got buried in the ratings on Wednesday Night.

Average Americans, like the rest of the world, believe that “President” Joe Biden is a joke.

So, Americans will not be gathering on a hillside to have a Coke and a Smile Moment any time soon.

Or, in Hunter Biden’s case, SOME coke and a smile…and a prostitute…and a $50,000 a month job.

Trump Delivers Stirring Speech at CPAC, Wins Presidential Straw Poll, Fox News Reports “Trump Doubled Down on His False Claims That the Election Was Stolen”

Newsmax.com reports that

Former President Donald Trump during a keynote speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Dallas Sunday vowed to “secure our borders, stop left-wing cancel culture, restore fair elections,” and “make America great again.”

“Joe Biden has brought this country to the brink of ruin,” Trump told a packed crowd at the three-day CPAC event.

“Even right here in Texas. We are the epicenter of a border and migration crisis unlike anything anyone has ever seen before in the history of our country. At the same time, they have totally obliterated your energy industry – I told you. Under my administration, we achieved a historic reduction in illegal immigration. … We ended the horrible catch and release where we catch a criminal and release him into our country. We actually said, ‘Nope, it’s called stay in Mexico.’

“It worked very well, and it had the support of Mexico. … We reduced drugs pouring across our border by the highest percentage ever in the history of our country. … We shut down the migrant caravans. We dealt a crippling blow to MS-13. We deported criminal aliens by the thousands and thousands and we built almost 500 miles of border wall.”

Biden’s border crisis, he said, “is helping drive in an unprecedented crime wave.”

“The bloodshed and violence in these cities is reaching epidemic proportions,” he said. “Homicides are up 42% in Los Angeles, 37% in Philadelphia, 68% in Atlanta and over 500% in Portland over this time last year. … In New York City, crime is out of control. It’s at record levels with nobody being prosecuted except, of course, innocent Republicans are being prosecuted,” a likely reference to New York prosecutors charging the Trump Organization of running a 15-year scheme to help its executives evade taxes by compensating them with fringe benefits that were hidden from the authorities.

Trump also hit Democrats for their stances on law enforcement, gun rights, critical race theory and election laws.

“They are hard at work to abolish the First Amendment as well,” he said.

“Probably all amendments, when you get right down to it. Why not?” he said. “The radical left and big tech’s attack on free speech is unlawful, it’s unconstitutional, and it is completely un-American. To protect the constitutional rights and liberty’s of every citizen, this week I filed a major class action. We are suing Facebook, Twitter and Google.”

Trump earlier this week announced class-action lawsuits against the tech giants over their “unlawful” censorship of him and other conservatives, after the social media giants banned him from posting in the wake of the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol.

The actions are being supported by the America First Policy Institute, headed by former Trump officials Linda McMahon and Brooke Rollins, who introduced Trump at the announcement. Axios first reported AFPI’s involvement.

The speech at the CPAC event was Trump’s second address to the group since he left office.

“We celebrate our rich heritage and national traditions. We honor George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, and all of our national heroes,” Trump said. “And of course, we always respect our great American flag.

“We believe in patriotic education for our children, and we strongly oppose the radical indoctrination of America’s youth. We are committed to defending innocent life and to proudly upholding the Judeo-Cristian jails of our nation’s founders.”

“Our glorious American inheritance was passed down to us by generations of American patriots who gave everything they had, their sweat, their blood, and even their way of lives to build America into the greatest nation in the history of the world,” Trump said, “and we are not going to let it be taken away from us by a small group of radical left Marxist maniacs.”

I have a confession to make.

I first went to FoxNews.com because they had a story about Trump’s speech at CPAC as well.

Here is what I found imbedded in it.

Trump Sunday doubled down on his false claims that the election was stolen, and attacked social media platforms and news organizations for allegedly suppressing claims of widespread election fraud.

“You say election fraud you get cancelled,” Trump said.

“Unfortunately this was an election where the person that counts the vote was far more important than the candidate,” Trump said, continuing to allege widespread voting fraud without evidence. “It’s a disgrace to our nation and we are truly being scorned and disrespected all over the world.”

The former president also mentioned his lawsuit against big tech companies over alleged censorship of conservatives on their platforms.

Why is Fox News treating the man who favored them as a news outlet during his Administration?

Trump was a very successful Billionaire Businessman and a very successful President..

However, unlike the very wealthy who contribute to Liberal causes and buy and sell Liberal politicians in order to gain more wealth and power, Trump ran for President because he actually loves our great country and its citizens.

And, as the 2020 Presidential Election showed, at least 73 million Americans love him back.

I am one of them.

I have been to a MAGA Rally and while there I watched a man who meant every single word he said, talking to average Americans in a way in which you would speak to your family or to your closest friends.

And, he was having a ball.

So were we.

Trump connected with average Americans like no other President has since Ronald Reagan.

He accomplished a lot in 4 years, bringing back America’s Economy while  growing America’s Job Market, shrinking Hispanic and Black unemployment numbers to the lowest point in history.

However, since the most obviously rigged election in United States History, 2020’s “Benedict Arnold”, Fox News, the Democratic Elite, and the Vichy Republicans are telling us that have to accept the fact that Sleepy Joe Biden, who could not fill an arena with a cement truck, was somehow fairly elected to the most powerful position on the planet

Not only that, they are telling Former President that he has to “do the right thing” and sit down and shut up.

He is having none of it…and judging from the crowds at his recent rallies and the overwhelming Presidential Straw Vote he won at CPAC, neither are average Americans.

These same Democrats, judging all of us members of the “future Proletariat” from their majestic thrones on high on Capitol Hill. proclaim that we must ALL surrender our Constitutional Rights and come together in a show of unity behind a man who doesn’t even know where he is half of the time.

Well, as for me, I am going to stand by the President of the United States of America, Citizen Statesman Donald J. Trump, and continue fighting the Good Fight.

The selfless legacy of those who died fighting to preserve our country’s freedom demands it.

Fox News…by attacking Trump, you are attacking your Core Audience.

No wonder you continue to lose viewers.

Until He Comes,

Fox News Cancels Lou Dobbs’ #1 Show, as Time Mag Admits That 2020 Election was RIGGED…err…”Fortified”

See the source image

PROLOGUE:  Well, you may have wondered where I have been the last couple of weeks.

Unfortunately, my wife and I both contracted the Chinese Coronavirus. However, by God’s Grace and the care of our doctors, we are well on the road to recovery.

Thank you for your support while I have been away.

So…

“Come, let us reason together…”

Marshall McLuhan once wrote that

The media is the message.

Well, in the past couple of decades, the Main Stream Media has become not just the message, but also judge, jury, and political executioner.

And, unfortunately, thanks to the influence of the Liberal daughter-in-laws of Rupert Murdoch, Fox News began overcompensating to the Left in keeping its programming “fair and balanced”.

Daily diatribes from Juan Williams, the now-departed Shep Smith, Donna Brazile, and Chris Wallace made me more than once turn the channel to reruns of…well…just about anything.

Then, came the night of the 2020 Presidential Election.

Fox News stripped away its veneer of “Fair and Balanced” to join CNN and MSNBC as servants of the Democratic Party.

That was not a very smart move.

And, they have been making mind-blowingly stupid moves ever since.

However, this one is the cherry on top of an ice cream sundae of Cable News Channel Programming Stupidity.

Newsmax.com reports that

Fox News has canceled ”Lou Dobbs Tonight,” the program hosted by one of the media’s most steadfast supporters of Donald Trump and the former president’s claims of voter fraud, the Los Angeles Times reported Friday.

Dobbs’ program, which has been airing twice nightly at 5 and 7 p.m. ET on the Fox Business Network, will be replaced next week with ”Fox Business Tonight,” with rotating substitute hosts Jackie DeAngelis and David Asman, who filled in for Dobbs on Friday. This, according to a Fox rep who confirmed the news to the Times.

Dobbs, 75, remains under contract at Fox News, the newspaper said, but his future on the conservative news network is murky.

The cancellation comes a day after a large voting software company, Smartmatic, filed a $2.7 billion defamation suit against Fox News and three of its hosts — Dobbs, Maria Bartiromo and Jeanine Pirro. The company said the hosts helped to spread lies about Smartmatic’s role in the presidential election, to the detriment of its reputation and its business.

Fox News has been in turmoil as long-time viewers have abandoned the channel since Election Day. Former President Donald Trump has attributed his election loss to Joe Biden to unfair coverage by Fox News as well as massive voter fraud.

Dobbs was signed to Fox News by its former chief executive Roger Ailes in 2011. As the Times noted, he has long been the company’s most outspoken supporter of Trump’s economic and immigration policies. In the weeks after the election, the paper said, he went on the air to express anger that the Republican Party did not do more to act on claims that the election was rigged in favor of Biden.

The firing of Dobbs will add weight to critics’ claims the network has gone soft backing conservative views.

Fox has also been reeling as its ratings have been in a tailspin as the network has dropped to third place behind CNN and MSNBC.

Newsmax appears to be the main beneficiary as its viewership has soared. Newsmax is now the 4th highest-rated cable news channel in the U.S.

Fox, in response, demoted long-time evening host Martha MacCallum to a day-time slot as Newsmax’s ”Greg Kelly Reports” has surged.

Fox News Corporation’s boneheaded move defies all logic, even with the lawsuit against them.

If you are on a sinking ship, you certainly do not drop an anchor through the hull of the ship so that you will sink faster.

Especially, considering the other big news story of the day, courtesy of DailyCaller.com

A “cabal of powerful people” worked to “fortify” the 2020 election through a “shadow campaign,” according to a Thursday Time Magazine report.

A co-ordinated alliance between activists and “powerful people” in many industries and across political lines sought to protect a free, fair and uncorrupted election, Time reported. The groups influenced states to “change voting systems and laws” and encouraged tech companies to take measures against disinformation.

Laura Quinn, the co-founder of a for-profit voter database company, developed a program designed to track disinformation and halt its spread, according to Time. In her conclusions, she found it necessary to pressure social media companies to vigorously police their platforms for disinformation and immediately remove accounts and posts involving false information.

Quinn’s research helped activists persuade social media leaders to take a firmer stance against disinformation, Time reported. In November 2019, Facebook’s CEO, Mark Zuckerberg had dinner with nine civil rights activists which resulted in stricter guidelines and enforcement of rules.

“Was it enough? Probably not. Was it later than we wanted? Yes,” said Biden administration Associate Attorney General nominee, Vanita Gupta, Time reported.

Well, gosh, it appears that Former President Trump and 75 million average Americans were right.

The 2020 Presidential Election was RIGGED.

“Fortified”, my a@@.

I’m so old that I remember when Fox News Channel was not a member of the Main Stream Media.

According to the Old Testament Book of Proverbs,

“Pride goeth before destruction and an haughty spirit before a fall.”

That scripture has never been truer than in the case of Fox News.

Americans have noticed that Fox News has been traveling in a Liberal direction ever since Rupert Murdoch left the running of the channel to his sons.

There are more Liberal Pundits and Anchors on Fox News than there have ever been in its history.

And, those who were not known until recently to be Liberal, such as Steve Doocy, Sandra Smith, and Jedidiah Bila, seem to be relishing the opportunity to drive away the audience which made Fox News Channel number one in the ratings for many, many years.

What is maddening to me is the fact that Former President Trump went out of his way to be kind to them, helping their ratings over his time in office through live phone calls and exclusive interviews, including one morning when he made a spontaneous appearance on “Fox and Friends”, consenting to a live on-the-spot interview with Steve Doocy.

Rise of Newsmax TV Causes Major Programming Changes at Fox News

See the source image

Marshall McLuhan once wrote that

Then came the night of the 2020 Presidential Election.

Fox News stripped away its veneer of “Fair and Balanced” to join CNN and MSNBC as servants of the Democratic Party.

That was not a very smart move.

Newsmax.com reports that

The rise of Newsmax TV has caused a major shake-up at Fox News, which announced Monday that its early evening show host Martha MacCallum has been demoted back to an early afternoon slot, among other changes to the lineup.

“Newsmax’s consistently strong numbers during the day and especially at the 7 p.m. ET slot has caused panic at Fox, which rarely makes lineup changes,” Newsmax said in a statement Monday, adding with a wink, “The Fox is on the run.”

MacCallum’s “The Story” had long been the #1 cable news show in the 7 p.m. time slot, until Newsmax TV’s “Greg Kelly Reports” began a ratings surge in recent months.

With Kelly pulling an average of 800,000-plus viewers per minute each night, MacCallum had fallen to third place behind CNN and MSNBC.

In December “Greg Kelly Reports” beat MacCallum in a key demo, a news story broken by CNN.

Newsmax has consistently taken one-third to one-half of Fox’s audience in each day part, according to the Nielsen Coverage Rating. The Coverage Rating shows a network’s viewership proportionate to the homes that can tune in.

Last week the Nielsen Coverage Rating for 7 p.m. showed that in the crucial 35-64 demo, “Greg Kelly Reports” was pulling more than half of MacCallum’s “The Story” (.77 versus 1.53).

The Nielsen numbers tell only half the story. Newsmax streams free on most OTT platforms and Fox News does not.

Newsmax estimates the OTT viewership nearly doubles its Nielsen average viewership numbers.

Newsmax’s consistently strong numbers have caused Fox to make additional changes.

Fox News CEO Suzanne Scott Monday announced a full shift in its daytime lineup.

MacCallum will be moved to the 3 p.m. spot and replaced by new show “FOX News Primetime” with hosts to be announced. The changes will debut on Jan. 18.

Other changes include that Harris Faulkner will no longer host “Outnumbered Overtime” at 1 p.m., but will host a new show, “The Faulkner Focus,” at 11 a.m.

Chief White House Correspondent John Roberts is moving to the studio as co-anchor of a new two-hour program with Sandra Smith.

Poor management.

The change in political viewpoint at Fox Bews has to be the worst marketing decision since “New Coke”.

And, just like New Coke, it has left a bitter taste in the mouths of a lot of Americans.

So, have the powers-that-be at FNC issued an apology yet for the mistake which has driven them to the bottom of the television ratings?

Heck no.

They just keep doubling down on stupid, like AOC at a MENSA Meeting.

“Morning Joe” Beats “Fox and Friends” in Morning Cable News Ratings…Actions Have Consequences

I’m so old that I remember when Fox News Channel was not a member of the Main Stream Media.

Newsmax.com reports that

MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” beat rival “Fox & Friends” in the morning cable news ratings for the first time since 2001 last week, AdWeek reported.

“Morning Joe,” hosted by Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski pulled in an average 1.6 million total viewers for the week vs. 1.4 million for “Fox & Friends.”

The news comes amid amid a ratings slide for Fox News Channel in recent weeks after conservative viewers announced on social media platforms their displeasure with Fox coverage, culminating on election night Fox called Arizona for Joe Biden earlier than other news organizations and proclaimed Biden “president elect” along with other mainstream outlets while President Donald Trump continues his election challenges and states have yet to officially certify results.

“Republicans grew tired of being lectured and insulted by some of Fox News’ anchors,” Red State said, reporting on the news. “We’ve seen it with Chris Wallace, Neil Cavuto, and Sandra Smith (caught on a hot mic). More recently, we saw Leland Vittert lose his mind on a Trump surrogate. Republicans don’t need a news network that lies to them. They do need one that doesn’t needlessly insult them and their viewpoints.”

Red State noted that while Fox has lost views, Newsmax TV has seen a “ratings boom.”

According to the Old Testament Book of Proverbs,

Pride goeth before destruction and an haughty spirit before a fall.

That scripture has never been truer than in the case of Fox News.

Americans have noticed that Fox news has been traveling in a Liberal direction ever since Rupert Murch left the running of the channel to his sons.

The change in political viewpoint at Fox Bews has to be the worst marketing decision since “New Coke”.

And, just like New Coke, it has left a bitter taste in the mouths of a lot of Americans.

So, have the powers-that-be at FNC issued an apology yet for the mistake which has driven them to the bottom of the television ratings?

Heck no.

They just keep doubling down on stupid, like AOC at a MENSA Meeting.

Fox News not only jumped the shark…they are gleefully feeding the crocodile known as the Democratic Party, hoping that it will eat them last.

Their arrogance is exceeded only by their stupidity.

Cavuto Cuts Off McEnany Voter Fraud Press Conference 45 Seconds in Continuing Fox News’ Leftward Plunge

During his Nationally syndicated radio program yesterday, The Godfather of Conservative Talk Radio, Rush Limbaugh, said…

You do not turn on your base. You do not turn on your audience, unless you’ve had some kind of — you just don’t — you don’t do it for the sake of the approval of your enemies. You don’t turn on the people who got you where you are because you would rather be friends with other people. You just don’t do it. And that appears to be what’s happened here.

We’ve got Donna Brazile all over the place. We’ve got everybody on a talking head interview, half of them or more are New York Times or Washington Post Democrat media people. The Arizona call. Some even think the Chris Wallace debate think is an anti-Trump move. But, you know, throughout all of this, the media can’t turn talk radio, can they? The media has been desperate to blow up talk radio and Fox News. They’ve wanted to blow up Fox News ever since Fox News was founded and created. And they’ve wanted to blow talk radio up since before that.

They’ve wanted to destroy me and my character and that of anybody else who hosts a talk radio program. Why is it do you think — it looks like they may be having some success now in blowing up Fox. I mean, you’ve got the wife of one of the Murdoch brothers tweeting out: We did it, we did it, we got rid of Trump, we did it. It was Lachlan Murdoch’s wife. So it looks like they may be succeeding in turning portions of Fox against its base.

Let me tell you something, folks. If the people running Fox succeed in destroying the distinction that Fox has from the rest of the media, they’re gonna destroy Fox. If they are successful in taking away from Fox the things that distinguish it and make it appear different from the rest of the Drive-By Media, what do you think’s gonna happen?

Neil Cavuto did not pay attention to Rush’s sage advice.

Newsmax.com reports that

In its latest move to defend its call of the election for Democrat Joe Biden, Fox News cut away from Kayleigh McEnany and the Trump campaign’s press briefing Monday outlining evidence of election and voter fraud.

“Woah, woah, woah, I think we have very clear: She is charging that the other side is welcoming fraud and welcoming illegal voting,” Fox News host Neil Cavuto said as the network cut away from the briefing. “Unless she has more details to back that up, I can’t in good countenance continuing showing you this.

“Maybe they do have something to back that up, but that’s an explosive charge to make that the other side is effectively rigging and cheating.”

Its reason: Voter fraud cannot be verified? And then they cut away from the actual work to verify voter fraud.

“Unlike our opponents, we have nothing to hide,” McEnany told reporters in prescient comments as Fox News cut away from it, angering some viewers. You can watch the news briefing in its entirely from C-SPAN.

The briefing called out the duplicity in the media for failing to look into voter fraud with the claim voter fraud is “unsubstantiated.”

“We are fighting for the rights of all Americans to have faith and confidence not only in this election, but in the many elections to come,” McEnany told reporters. “There is only one party in America that opposes voter ID. One party in America that opposes verifying signatures, citizenship, residency, eligibility.

“There is only one party in American trying to keep observers out of the count room. And that party, my friends, is the Democrat Party.

“You don’t take these positions because you want an honest election. You don’t oppose an audit of the vote, because you want an accurate count. You don’t oppose our efforts at sunlight and transparency because you have nothing to hide.

“You take these positions because you are welcoming fraud and you are welcoming illegal voting.

“Our position is clear: We want to protect the franchise of the American people. We want an honest, accurate, lawful count. We want maximum sunlight. We want maximum transparency. We want every legal vote to be counted, and we want every illegal vote to be discarded.”

Those who run Fox News are as determined as a squadron of Japanese Kamikazes to crash and burn once was the most popular cable news channel in America in order to please their new Democratic Party Masters.

Fox New’s complete embracing of a failed political ideology does not make any sense.

Like Rush said, “What do you think is going to happen?”

Just like when Liberals tried to counter the boom in Conservative Talk Radio brought about by the success of Rush Limbaugh, when the came up with the horrible Air America radio network, the braintrust at Fox News is in for a very rude awakening.

The majority of Americans are still Conservative and do not want to be lectured to all day long.

They want their news to be, pardon the phrase, fair and balanced.

Not Liberal and didactically unhinged.

While Roger Ailes may have been a lecherous old man, he knew what average Americans wanted in a Cable News Channel….and it certainly wasn’t Liberal Propaganda.

Fox News jumped the shark like Arthur Fonzarelli when they prematurely called the state of Arizona for JOe Biden way too early.

And, then to start exhibiting disdain toward the Conservative average Americans who made them what they are, is the biggest programming mistake since the Rosie O’Donnell Variety Show.

Once all of this fraud which is being discovered in the battleground states is rectified and President Donald J. Trump is declared the winner, Fox News is going to find themselves just like the Emperor who thought that he was wear new clothes…exposed to the public and totally embarrassed.

They will join a lot of their fellow Liberals who believed themselves to be smarter than everybody else.

They should have been more well-read.

Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall. – Proverbs 16:18

Fox News Continues to Alienate Their Conservative Audience as They Cancel Judge Jeanine

Newsmax.com reports that

For those of you that might have tuned in and did not see Fox News’ “Justice” with Judge Jeanine Pirro on Saturday night, sources told Newsmax the show was suspended over a spat on the network’s coverage of President Donald Trump.

Sources close to the network tell Newsmax, because she made a very staunch defense of President Trump and wanted to expose the vote fraud that took place in the election, Fox News decided not to air her show. It had extended coverage of Democrat Joe Biden’s acceptance speech of a contested election.

The sources gave no inclination of whether the network is going to keep the show going, but we hear she was suspended at least for this weekend.

Fox News is not the only news organization scrambling to go decisively critical of President Trump.

The New York Times reported Rupert Murdoch’s tabloid, the New York Post, has shifted its tone on Trump as a top editor has planned his own exit from the reputed oldest newspaper in American history.

“Col Allan, a wizard there, says he plans to retire next year,” the Times reported Saturday.

Murdoch had once been a controlling owner of Fox News.

Fox News critically was the first, and for a longtime on Election Day, the only news organization to call the state of Arizona for Biden. Arizona’s 11 electoral votes, still in dispute in the state’s ongoing election count and with the Trump campaign, are pivotal to decide the presidential electoral college victor.

Newsmax, citing the close race under 20,000 votes and pending Trump campaign legal challenges, has not called the state of Arizona or Pennsylvania, leaving the true victor of the election still undecided.

Marshall McLuhan wrote that

The media is the message.

Well, in the past couple of decades, the Main Stream Media has become not just the message, but also judge, jury, and political executioner.

And, unfortunately, thanks to the influence of the Liberal daughter-in-laws of Rupert Murdoch, Fox News Began overcompensating to the Left in keeping its programming “fair and balanced”.

Daily diatribes from Juan Williams, Shep Smith, Donna Brazile, and Chris Wallace made me more than once turn the channel to reruns of…well…just about anything.

Then came the night of the 2020 Presidential Election.

Fox News stripped away its veneer of “Fair and Balanced” to join CNN and MSNBC as servants of the Democratic Party

Then yesterday, they eagerly jumped to declare demented old Joe Biden the President-Elect of the United States of America, when they knew that the election was being contested in court by President Donald J. Trump, whose team of lawyers will file more than 100 lawsuits on Monday.

And now, comes the news that they suspended Judge Jeanine because she dared to stand up for President Donald J. Trump.

Who’s next?

Tucker Carlson? Sean Hannity? Laura Ingraham? Maria Bartiromo?

They may as well hire the unwatchable Shepherd Smith back while they are at it.

You had better watch it, Major Pete Hegseth,

Fox News will probably suspend you next.

Fox News has turned their back on and succeeded in alienating their loyal fans who made them into the News Juggernaut that they are.

It most certainly was not American Liberals.

It was average Conservative Americans.

So, Paul Ryan and you other turncoats at Fox News…what happens if the Supreme Court throws out all of the illegal votes in Pennsylvania and elsewhere and Donald J. Trump is declared the winner of the 2020 Presidential Election?

Perhaps CNN will give you one of their two viewers.

As Popeye would say,

Tsk. Tisk. How embarrasskin’.

Two Former Fox News Employees File Lawsuits Alleging Sexual Harassment Against Hannity and Carlson and Rape Against Ed Henry

Henry Carlson Hannity

WashingtonTimes.com reports that

Fox News Channel stars Sean Hannity, Tucker Carlson and Howard Kurtz were accused of sexual harassment by a frequent on-air guest in a lawsuit filed Monday that the network called frivolous and untrue.

In the same case, a former Fox employee said she was harassed and raped by news anchor Ed Henry, who was fired July 1 shortly after the network became aware of the accusations.

Henry’s lawyer, Catherine Foti, said Monday that her client’s accuser, Jennifer Eckhart, initiated and encouraged a sexual relationship.

Hannity and Carlson represent two-thirds of Fox’s lucrative prime-time lineup, while Kurtz hosts the weekend “Media Buzz” show. None of the men have been mentioned before in any misconduct allegations at Fox until the charges were made by Cathy Areu.

The lawsuit filed in New York describes Areu’s discomfort with a March 2018 incident on the set of Hannity’s show where the host allegedly put $100 on a desk and challenged the men on his staff to take her out on a date.

She said she was a guest on Carlson’s show in December 2018 and that after it was over, he told her he was staying in a hotel room in New York that night without his wife and children. In 2019, she said Kurtz invited her to his hotel room to discuss her hope of getting a full-time job at Fox. When she instead invited him to dinner with her and a friend, he declined, she said.

In the cases of Carlson and Kurtz, Areu believed the men were making sexual advances, the lawsuit said. Areu said she was also propositioned by Gianno Caldwell, a Fox contributor.

This sounds familiar, doesn’t it?

Well, there’s always two sides to every story…

Fox News spokesperson Jessica Ketner issued a statement to Heavy.com. It said:

Based on the findings of a comprehensive independent investigation conducted by an outside law firm, including interviews with numerous eyewitnesses, we have determined that all of Cathy Areu’s claims against FOX News, including its management as well as its hosts Tucker Carlson, Sean Hannity & Howard Kurtz and its contributor Gianno Caldwell, are false, patently frivolous and utterly devoid of any merit.

We take all claims of harassment, misconduct and retaliation seriously, promptly investigating them and taking immediate action as needed — in this case, the appropriate action based on our investigation is to defend vigorously against these baseless allegations. Ms. Areu and Jennifer Eckhart can pursue their claims against Ed Henry directly with him, as FOX News already took swift action as soon as it learned of Ms. Eckhart’s claims on June 25 and Mr. Henry is no longer employed by the network.

Henry tweeted, “I will fight with every fiber of my being.” He also released a statement from his attorney, Cathy Foti, denying the accusations and saying he was in a consensual relationship with Eckhart:

The MeToo movement has helped to bring to light a number of injustices in our society, and everyone that has suffered deserves to be heard. This is not one of those cases. The evidence in this case will demonstrate that Ms. Eckhart initiated and completely encouraged a consensual relationship. Ed Henry looks forward to presenting actual facts and evidence, which will contradict the fictional accounts contained in the complaint. That evidence includes graphic photos and other aggressively suggestive communications that Ms. Eckhart sent to Mr. Henry.

Okay, we are all very familiar with the accused.

What do we know about the accusers?

Per her LinkedIn.com Profile Page,

Jennifer Eckhart is a female powerhouse in the media industry who bridges the gap between producing and being an on-air personality. Jennifer joined the Fox News team in January 2013, and is frequently featured on Fox programming, including Fox News Radio & Fox Nation. She also produces one of the top rated business shows in America, “Countdown to the Closing Bell.”

..Jennifer’s proudest achievement, however, is giving some of the youngest and brightest entrepreneurs aiming to disrupt entire industries a chance at the national spotlight.

Before joining Fox News, Jennifer was as a correspondent for ESPN Radio where she hosted the 2011 ESPN College Football Awards live from the red carpet in Orlando, FL. Jennifer also served as an Entertainment Anchor for WUFT-TV, a PBS affiliate in Gainesville, Florida.

In her personal life, she is dating a corporate lawyer and has an Instragram Page under a very interesting non de plume: “aho 187″.

Don’t ask me to spell that out for you. I am too much of a gentleman for that.

According to Cathy Areu’s Instragram Profile, she listed as a Journalist, a Former Washington Post Contributing Editor, CATALINA Founder, host of “Liberal Sherpa” & “Catalina” podcasts, and she did Op-Ed’s on Fox News.

CATALINA is a magazine for Latina Women.

Areu is known as a Liberal Political Activist.

Now, I am no lawyer but my almost 40 years of experience working in corporations tells me a couple of things:

Concerning Ms. Eckhart’s claims, Fox did not want take the chance that it might be true, so they got rid of Ed Henry for safety’s sake.

Second, their sticking behind Tucker Carlson and Sean Hannity tells me that they believe what their spoekesperson wrote: that her stories are a bunch of garbage.

Not to be insensitive, but…

If you are going to file rape and sexual coercion charges against someone, you probably should have changed your Instragram handle proclaiming yourself to be “aho”.

Otherwise, the public will think you and you associate are going after these men for the sake of fame, money, and politics.

I’m just sayin”.

About This Fox News Impeachment Poll…Did Anybody Call You? They Sure Didn’t Call Me

phone-annoying-

https://twitter.com/JackPosobiec/status/1182106536006565888

Swing down Chariot stop and let me ride.

I have just seen everything.

A hit piece featuring a poll on Impeaching President Trump showing what is obviously a Democrat-heavy survey sample of 1,033 imbeciles…ON FOXNEWS.COM!!!

Just over half of voters want President Trump impeached and removed from office, according to a Fox News Poll released Wednesday.

A new high of 51 percent wants Trump impeached and removed from office, another 4 percent want him impeached but not removed, and 40 percent oppose impeachment altogether. In July, 42 percent favored impeachment and removal, while 5 percent said impeach but don’t remove him, and 45 percent opposed impeachment.

Since July, support for impeachment increased among voters of all stripes: up 11 points among Democrats, 5 points among Republicans and 3 among independents. Support also went up among some of Trump’s key constituencies, including white evangelical Christians (+5 points), white men without a college degree (+8), and rural whites (+10).

Among voters in swing counties (where Hillary Clinton and Trump were within 10 points in 2016), support for impeachment increased to 52 percent, up from 42 percent in July.

A lot has happened since the July Fox poll on impeachment — namely, the launch of an impeachment inquiry in the House following allegations Trump improperly pressured Ukraine to investigate the Bidens’ dealings in that country. The 9-point increase in support for impeachment since July, however, doesn’t appear to be based solely on the latest allegations. To that point, more Democrats favor impeaching Trump (85 percent) than consider his call with Ukraine’s president an impeachable offense (76 percent). The same holds true among independents: 39 percent favor impeachment, while 30 percent describe the Ukraine call as impeachable.

The 4-in-10 voters opposing impeachment give a variety of reasons, including: Trump did nothing wrong (21 percent), it is politically motivated (20 percent), and don’t believe allegations (15 percent).

Approval of Trump’s job performance is down a couple of points to 43 percent, while 55 percent disapprove. Last month, it was 45-54 percent. Currently, 86 percent of Republicans approve compared to 89 percent in September.

Again, did they call you?

They sure didn’t call me.

Ever since the doom and gloom polls started appearing after Donald J. Trump announced his candidacy for the Republican Nomination in the 2016 Presidential Election, I have watched as poll after poll, no matter how well Trump is actually doing with American Citizens, painted a picture of a struggling novice who could not compete with “real” politicians.

Marshall McLuhan wrote that

The media is the message.

Well, in the past couple of decades, the Main Stream Media has become not just the message, but also judge, jury, and political executioner.

The daily diatribes from Juan Williams, Shep Smith, Donna Brazile, and the little mousey brown-haired Liberal Female Commenter, whose name doesn’t really matter, have made me more than once turn the channel to reruns of…well…just about anything.

Fox News needs to recognize who made them into the News Juggernaut that they are.

It most certainly was not American Liberals.

It was average Americans.

The same average Americans who are called “Deplorables”, who voted for Trump the first time and who are going to vote for him again, no matter what skewed polling which has nothing whatsoever to do with reality shows in a graphic on a TV screen.

If polls decided a Presidential Election, Hillary Clinton would be sitting in the Oval Office.

Like a politician’s press secretary, pollsters can word polling questions and skew the sample of voters which they take to achieve whatever outcome they want their poll to have.

You want to see a true picture of how American Voters feel about President Trump?

Tune in to the MAGA Rallies in Minnesota and Louisiana.

Even with the paid protestors that will most certainly be in Minnesota, average Americans will still be there supporting the man who is bringing our country back.

Fox News, you should be ashamed of yourself.

I thought you were better than that.
