Every day, it becomes more clear that Fox News is not what it used to be.
Sure, they have great stars like Hannity, Tucker Carlson, and Laura Ingraham.
But many observers are noticing that Fox News is going more and more to the left.
One of the many strengths of President Trump is that he can speak directly to the American people.
Multiple inside sources are claiming that President Trump is eying to build a digital empire to “destroy” Fox News.
Fox’s apparent pre-mature call on Arizona is one of the latest examples of how the network is allegedly tilting the narrative against Trump.

Why are conservatives still watching FOX News Ch? And don't tell me about Hannity and Tucker. This is about First Amendment freedom and clean elections. That is more important than those two. They can leave FOX if they want our continued loyalty. @newsmaxhttps://t.co/hochVFG7mw

A media network would be very powerful for President Trump.
We all know the media hates Trump.
But worse than that…
Social media is now in on the act.
Social media giants such as Twitter are openly censoring President Trump’s tweets!
The Daily Caller reports on Trump’s “plans to wreck Fox News”:
President Donald Trump reportedly “plans to wreck Fox” News by launching his own digital media channel, Axios reported Thursday.
Trump was angered after the network called Arizona for President-elect Joe Biden with just 73% of votes counted – and he made it known publicly. The president’s aim in launching a media channel would be “to clobber Fox News and undermine” the network, according to Axios, which cited multiple sources.
“He plans to wreck Fox. No doubt about it,” Axios reported one source as saying.
Specifically, the president is not leaning towards launching a cable channel due to the time and costs associated. Trump is, however, toying with the idea of an online streaming media channel that would likely charge a monthly fee to those who wish to watch, according to Axios.
The president will “spend a lot of time slamming Fox,” the source said.
Despite the threat, Fox News appears confident in its viewership base. Fox Corp. CEO Lachlan Murdoch said during an earnings call on Nov. 3 that the company loves competition, Axios reported.
“We love competition,” Murdoch said. “We have always thrived with competition. … Fox News has been the number one network, including broadcast networks, … from Labor Day through to Election Day.”
Fox News claims that they are not scared of competition.
But perhaps they should be.
Early results show that Fox News’ ratings have TANKED ever since the election.

.@FoxNews daytime ratings have completely collapsed. Weekend daytime even WORSE. Very sad to watch this happen, but they forgot what made them successful, what got them there. They forgot the Golden Goose. The biggest difference between the 2016 Election, and 2020, was @FoxNews!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 12, 2020
Let me tell you how big the exodus from @FoxNews has become.
Fox has hired a crisis management team to handle PR for their ratings crisis.#Foxit is real & it's spectacular.

Fox News was once the undisputed cable king.
They were consistently #1.
But ever since accusations that they “backstabbed” President Trump have gone viral, even CNN has beaten Fox News!
LA Times reports that CNN, which typically ranked behind Fox News, is now performing better in the ratings:
Prime-time coverage of the presidential election gave CNN a rare victory over Fox News Channel and made it the week’s second most-watched network overall behind NBC.
CNN averaged 5.941 million viewers and Fox News Channel 5.726 million for its prime-time programming between Nov. 2 and Sunday, according to live-plus-same-day figures released Tuesday by Nielsen.
Fox News Channel had been the most-watched cable network 40 of the previous 41 weeks.
NBC was first for the week, averaging 6.33 million viewers, helped in part by the “Sunday Night Football” game between the New Orleans Saints and Tampa Bay Buccaneers, which averaged 16.88 million viewers, the week’s largest audience.
Fox News Channel was the highest rated-network in prime time on election night, averaging 14.158 million viewers. CNN was second, averaging 9.47 million and MSNBC third, averaging 7.661 million.
ABC was first among the broadcast networks on election night, averaging 6.297 million. NBC was second, averaging 5.8 million, and CBS third, averaging 4.498 million.
More viewers watched CNN’s coverage of President-elect Joe Biden’s speech Saturday after he was declared the winner, with coverage averaging 13.503 million viewers, sixth among the week’s prime-time programs. MSNBC was second, averaging 9.005 million.
That’s gotta hurt…
And things will only get worse if President Trump keeps his promise to create a digital empire that “wrecks” Fox News.
