The 45th president blasted Fox News for its long-standing anti-conservative reporting. The alleged conservative new outlet began reporting against Trump prior to the 2016 elections and continues to do so, even now. Though, they have made some serious line-up changes as the more anti-conservative hosts’ popularity dropped—Killing their overall rating.
Trump too special aim at Chris Wallace, who he says turns Americans away from the network with his leftist report:
Appearing on Newsmax TV last night, President Trump was asked about his feelings on Fox News. Host Dick Morris claimed, “an awful lot of Fox News viewers have stopped watching Fox and are now tuning into Newsmax,” and asked the 45th President for his thoughts on why.
“Well, Fox has been a lot different. And I think they’re coming back a bit,” said President Trump. “But Fox has certainly been a lot different than it’s been in 2016. One of the biggest differences in the election, even though I won 75 million votes, one of the biggest differences, which is far more than I won the first time when you think about it.” He added, “If you look at how Fox, how they did versus how they did in 2016, it was day and night. A big difference and people are very angry about it.”
Morris then asked about the presence of Paul Ryan on Fox News’s board, and about Chris Wallace, briefly mistakenly referring to him as Mike Wallace, the name of his veteran journalist father.
“No, he’d like to be Mike Wallace, that’s his father,” said President Trump. “That’s Chris Wallace.” President Trump added, “Yeah, he was disastrous. He was your basic disaster. He’s just a very negative guy. And the people don’t want to hear that. That’s why they tune out.”
As I said above, you may have noticed that the organization did away with some of its more extreme left hosts, like Shepard Smith, and has tried to recover its conservative base but most people agree that they only watch the network for a small handful of shows— Like the Hannity report with Sean Hannity and Tucker Carlson’s report.
I don’t think there will be much that will ever help recover their reputation as a conservative news outlet. Not now that most people have seen through the corporate buy-out and the left-wing political pandering. What do you think? Let me know in the comments below.
