Donald Trump and his supporters were betrayed by Fox News on Election Day.
The so-called “fair and balanced” network got the election way wrong.
And now Fox News is facing this crisis in the aftermath of the election that could bring down the whole network.
Fox News played into the Left’s hands for the entire presidential campaign.
The network reported the same regurgitated talking points as the Fake News Media and claimed the race was steady and that Donald Trump was trailing helplessly and would lose in a historic landslide.
Apparently this narrative was driven by “statistics” coming out of battleground state polls that predicted an easy win for Biden.
Well, on election night, there was no landslide and once again, the pollsters and pundits couldn’t have been more wrong.
The 2020 presidential race is still unresolved and is extremely tight in many battleground states, with some even now beginning the process of recounting.
President Trump has been heavily critical of Fox News ever since the network called Arizona for Biden on Election Day with only 73% of the state’s ballots accounted for.
As results continued to pour in, Fox News polls of battleground states were way off, by as much as 12 points in many different cases – President Trump’s criticism was vindicated.

Although the poll reaches back to June, Fox News said Trump would lose Florida by nine. Trump won by 3.6 points.
Fox News said Biden would win Pennsylvania by five. The state is gunna be a squeaker and Trump could eventually take it.
Fox News told us Trump would lose Nevada by 11. With almost all the votes in, Nevada is too close to call.
Fox News told us Trump would lose Wisconsin by five. While Trump is going to either demand a recount or outright contest the results, as of now he is down by less than half a point.
Fox News told us Trump would lose Michigan by 12. With 94 percent of the vote counted, Trump is down by less than a point.
Fox News told us Trump would lose Arizona by nine points. With 86 percent of the vote in, Arizona is too close to call.
When Fox News called Arizona prematurely on Election Day, it was a clear sign to the President and to the American people that the network has foregone “fair and balanced” to join the Fake News Media and the Left in an attempt to force a political agenda on the rest of the country.
All this time, the liberal critics of Fox News have accused the network of being a propaganda machine for Trump, but it turns out that is far from the truth.
The reality is that Fox News is just as easily bought and paid for as any of the other mainstream media outlets and in 2020 Fox News bid to bury a dagger in President Trump’s back, betray the American people, and push a false Joe Biden victory on Americans with a premature calling of Arizona.
Now that they’ve been found out, the question is what did Fox News have to gain by sabotaging the Trump campaign on Election Day with misinformation – and who was behind the decisions made?
