Fox News On The Ropes Due To Self Inflicted Decapitation
If there is one lesson to be gleamed by surviving the year 2020, it is that you can no longer trust ANYTHING you see, hear, or read in the media. I would be lying if I said that didn’t mean you should be skeptical of what we publish as well. Not because we set out to deceive anyone, we fully admit that we are conservative and libertarians looking to convert others to our world view.
I suggest being skeptical of everyone, including us, becuase we are working off the reporting of others, all with differing agendas and perspectives. My advice to you is this: gather all the information you can, analyze it, then come to a hypothesis. Once you have a hypothesis, test it and take mental notes. Realize who you think is right more often than others and vice versa. Then try to use this information to make better decisions about who’s info you should. consume going forward.
I think a lot of people already know this and that is why Fox News is having the trouble the is alleged in this story by Kari Donovan of DJHJMedia.com:
Opinion| Kari Donavon| Fox News is seeing a massive drop in ratings for the second month in a row after their massive betrayal of the American people, and it is doubtful they will be able to compete on the left as easily as they believed they would have been able to. On Election Eve Fox News execs made the decision to drop the burden of reporting news to supporters of President Donald J. Trump by chasing them off with anti-Trump propaganda. Specifically, the news card readers on FOX did this by “calling” states for their pal Democrat Joe Biden, that should have never gone to him.
Fox News had slowly been working up to the final betrayal, by inserting Democrat propaganda, but Nov. 3rd was the final straw for at least half of Fox’s audience.
Trump called it weeks after the election:
.@FoxNews daytime is virtually unwatchable, especially during the weekends. Watch @OANN, @newsmax, or almost anything else. You won’t have to suffer through endless interviews with Democrats, and even worse!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 28, 2020
“Fox News ratings are getting really bad. ‘Tucker Carlson Tonight’ viewership has dropped to 12th place. ‘Hannity’ has fallen to 19th place. ‘The Ingraham Angle’ viewership has fallen to 24th place,” one ratings water posted on Twitter.
December’s Ratings Collapse for Fox News Weekend continues to be a nightmare. Going from record ratings before their duplicitous Arizona call to massive rating collapse by Sat-Sun 12/19-12/20.

A recent article from the Daily Wire gives some great background chatter from a former Fox News host.
Eric Bolling Says Employees At Fox News Are ‘Nervous’ About Drop-In Ratings:
According to Sinclair TV’s Eric Bolling, a former host at Fox News, staffers at his previous network is worried by the change in audience numbers in the aftermath of the 2020 presidential election.
Speaking at Turning Point USA’s annual Student Action Summit in West Palm Beach, Florida, Bolling explained why networks such as Newsmax and One America News Network had surged in popularity after the election on November 3rd.
“Here’s what happened guys, let’s be honest with you… on November 3rd — Fox declared Biden, the winner in Arizona. MAGA-world went ballistic; they said ‘I’m not watching Fox News,’ they switched over, and they looked, and they found Newsmax,” Bolling said.
Bolling then sparked rapturous applause among the TPUSA event attendees when he said that “Fox lost about 40% of their audience. 40%. That’s a big number.” In recent weeks, Fox has disputed such claims, pointing out that while some programs have dropped a third of their viewers since election night, they still atop the cable news ratings.
