Fox News’ ratings have dropped a whopping 40% since the November 3 election.
It all started when the network stabbed former President Donald Trump and his supporters in the back.
But Fox News may now lose its advertisers after CNN just made this outrageous allegation about the network.
The way Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace treated President Trump during the first debate seemed to kick off an anti-Trump bias at the network.
After Fox News took sides during the debate, the network then prematurely called Arizona for Joe Biden and projected that Democrats would gain seats in the House of Representatives – a projection that turned out to be wrong as Democrats ended up losing seats in the House.
Then, the network attacked Donald Trump over his allegations of widespread voter fraud committed by Democrats on November 3, refusing to allow their hosts to even mention the very real evidence of voter fraud compiled by Trump’s legal team.
As a result, Fox News has seen a 40% decline in viewership just since November 3 alone.
Like sharks smelling blood in the water, CNN knows Fox News is wounded – and they’re apparently moving in for the kill with host Chris Cuomo bringing on Tom Friedman, a columnist for the New York Times, to discuss ways to take Fox News off the air for good.
Of course, this is the same Tom Friedman who once referred to Republicans as the “biggest threat to our democracy since the Civil War,” even calling them “un-American whores putting a bullet in the country.”
And now he is alleging that Fox News gave Trump supporters “permission” to be terrorists the likes of Radical Islamic suicide bombers.
“I really draw on the experience now these days of the whole war against Muslim extremism after 9/11. And I tell you the biggest thing I learned from that. That you need a war of ideas and it’s got to come from within,” Friedman said, comparing Fox News’ pro-Trump coverage to those promoting terrorist ideas to Muslim extremists.
But he didn’t stop there.
“We need to take that permission away. Just Trump leaving will be at the beginning of that. But the ecosystem, the Fox News permission givers, the whole ecosystem has to say this is off. This is wrong. You are not proud boys, you’re dumb boys. It has to come from within the right and that is what we all have to be calling for as journalists, as politicians, and, Chris, as business leaders,” Friedman continued, insisting that Fox News needs to lose the ability to give “permission” to so-called terrorists.
And the way to do that, according to Friedman, is by members of the business community to completely defund the network, saying “The American business community has got to tell every one of these shows if you are promoting a big lie, we are taking the money away. That’s what a war of ideas is all about.”
Fox News is wounded. CNN smells blood in the water. And they’re circling like sharks, looking for any way they can find to take down the network for good.
CNN’s end goal is to rid the media of any resemblance of conservative news – so only CNN and their fellow radical Leftist Fake News Media stations remain.
