. Fox needs to appeal to more than just the Depends and Viagra crowd.


its depend not depends. Damm Mandela effect.


I'll take your word for it....

Disney is now the parent corp. for Fox news. Fox news will do what ever the Disney corporate Gods tell them to do.

personally I would much rather work for 20th Century Fox than Disney.

www.fastcompany.com...

Rumors are that Fox will be soon be focused on Live events and sports. News just isn't that profitable.





from your article.......


While regular viewers of Fox News may shudder at the idea of the right-leaning network’s leadership having to answer to noted Democrat Iger for the next four years, fear not. Fox News is not going to be part of Disney. As part of the Disney-Fox merger, 21st Century Fox will spin off Fox News, Fox Business, and the Fox broadcasting network into a new, separately traded company.

Sheppard Smith's hour is RADICAL liberal. Today he said, "The President is Lying, for political purposes". The wimpy SOB said this FOUR TIMES in the space of 5 minutes. (He Was referring to "bad guys in the caravan", and "middle class tax cut coming" statements from the President.)

One can only dream that the Murdoch sons are finally being handed the reins... So they can finally dial back on that stale old repetitive right-wing BS propaganda that's been rammed down our throats for the last few decades...


Well we need at least one news outlet that counters the leftists propaganda that we are bombarded with in the news, every television show, music lyrics etc.

Yup, 2 lies right there from ol' Shep.

He's a real winner ain't he 😃

Another one of my favorites is commentator Mary Anne Marsh 😃

I don't know who Anne Marsh is. I'll look her up. Sheppard cry-baby Smith has a FULL frickin hour on FoxNews. Thank goodness he's on at the same time as Sean Hannity's radio show every afternoon!

Fox News has always had both sides represented, but it's clearly skewed to the Right and I've never seen anything particularly wrong with that. CNN was once upon a time, going back into the 1990's pretty much the same before they went all in for one side. The evolution of CNN has been far more dramatic overall.

As it stands now the Left leaners include ABC, NBC, CNN, MSNBC, CBS and of course others including nearly every newspaper in the US. The Right has FoxNews, One America News and a few radio talk shows that have not much of an audience, albeit a loyal following.

We need the diversity. It's healthy and if anything the Right is underrepresented. I suspect that's more due to people from the Left being more inclined to pursue a career included in that. There simply are not enough from the Right interested in being involved, which of course adds to the lopsidedness of it all.

Shepard Smith has always been the same as he is now. He's probably one of most non-partisan folks on the air now.

What I'm seeing right now is FoxNews moving towards being more moderate and CNN for instance moving hard to the Left and unapologetically so.

For me the smart money says, people need to watch them all to get a full picture. Those who only watch one source or one sides source are poorly informed and rather than having a good understanding, they have heads full of partisan talking points.

If Fox News is indeed moving to the center, good for them. Being able to get both sides views in one source is most helpful. I'm not really seeing that though, not at any meaningful level. They have no need to compete for the Lefts market which is supersaturated.

In the end it's all about ratings and advertising dollars drive it all. The pundits may be biased, but the money behind them is going to go with what sells and brings the dollars in. Independents are fast becoming the dominant market and it's no surprise any one of them would start moving that way.

Shepherd Smith didn't use to be so Liberal. He has definitely been instructed to have a more liberal bent. He was never the hard core conservative news guy but now he might as well be on MSNBC.

OK. I looked up Anne Marsh.
www.foxnews.com...
She's a Democrat. You WANT her triggered. That indicates success. I wouldn't care about Shep Smith being a Democrat either, if FoxNews didn't give him a FULL HOUR of time to talk about whatever the hell he wants to.

I think he may be another one of Cory Booker's bathroom victims. What gay person like Shep could say "NO!" to Spartacus?

Agree, Hence I said



Foxnews is the swamp and works for the same people as cnn, just different rhetoric to achieve 95% propaganda coverage.


Are you suggesting that foxnews is not swamp? Surely you couldn't be that blind, and I'm giving you the benefit of the doubt.

No

My reply is going to touch randomly on different comments I read.

Fox has always had liberal host/anchors in order to allow both sides to be heard. It’s that whole “fair and balanced” thingy . ( yes I know that’s their old motto )


The weekdaly date time lineup isn’t changing towards liberal viewership. The only never trumper is Shepard Smith. Neal Cavuto and Brett Baer are straight shooters and call um like they see them . Tucker does the same just not to their extent. The daytime weekend programs are more liberal. I blame that on Chris Wallace . (snide remark not meant to be taken literally )

There revenue is down because of their content and prospective advertisers receive pressure from the left because that’s what liberals do . But their large share of viewership helps makes up for that.

Bias from both sides is also known as neutrality .

Fox has been number one for 200 straight weeks. Correct me if I’m wrong but the Murdochs are in business to make money right? Why on earth would anyone think that the Murdochs would change the spin in order to create another radians nightmare like CNN . If it ain’t broke don’t fix it.

Thank you Xuenchen I was going to touch on ownership but you’ve got that covered.


So to sum up my original answer about fox becoming more liberal .....

No
