There is major pushback against Fox News coming from viewers across the country after the network called Arizona for Joe Biden on election night. Anchor Brett Baier is also under fire for deleting a tweet that was solely intended to promote an upcoming show.
“Join me + @marthamaccallum tonight 8pmET on @FoxNews,” Baier said. That tweet was followed by tons of negative comments mostly from people who claim to have lost faith in the network. “Nope – done with Fox,” read one tweet. “I’d rather get another vasectomy without anesthesia sir,” said another person.
Fox News is facing stiff competition from Newsmax and One America News Network (OAN), however the two things that those networks do not have are Sean Hannity and Tucker Carlson. Those shows outranked every network from 8 to 11 p.m. from June to July.
“Fox’s ratings will likely remain high until the presidential election is resolved, but I am truly interested to see what happens after,” said a viewer on Twitter.
Fox News has reportedly suspended Judge Jeanine Pirro because she wanted to expose voter fraud that she believes occurred during the election.
Newsmax first reported the story. The network decided to air coverage of President-elect Joe Biden’s acceptance speech from Delaware.
The report did not indicate what Fox was planning to do with Pirro’s show only saying that she was suspended for at least this weekend.
While Fox News plans its direction in the wake of a President Trump loss over the weekend, The New York Times reported that the New York Post’s top editor is planning to exit the oldest newspaper in American history. “Col Allan, a wizard there, says he plans to retire next year,” the Times reported Saturday.
Fox News made the controversial call for Joe Biden winning the state of Arizona on Election night. Biden ended up winning Arizona along with the 11 electoral votes. Biden won the presidency on Saturday with a victory in Pennsylvania.
Born in DC, was brought home to live on 550 in Woodsboro, and then my parents decided to move to the west side of town on Gravel Hill Road, and I haven’t left. Well OK, I did move out of my folks’ house. At their request, I guess 35 was long enough time to be sponging off of Mom & Dad! I still live in Woodsboro to this day!
