Fox News Channel is the top rated cable news network.
But it may not enjoy that status for much longer.
That’s because Donald Trump told this one truth about Fox News that could be the final nail in their coffin.
Weekend Fox News anchor Jon Scott aired a story about a highly controversial and unsubstantiated New York Times story claiming the conditions at border detention facilities housing illegal aliens were “the stuff of nightmares.”
Millions of Americans watch Fox News because of the network’s commitment to “fair and balanced news.”
Uncritically covering the New York Times partisan hit pieces designed to advance open borders and amnesty for illegal aliens is not news.
It is issue advocacy.
Donald Trump happened to watch the segment and he warned Fox News on social media that embracing a liberal narrative could cost the network its audience.
“Watching @FoxNews weekend anchors is worse than watching low ratings Fake News @CNN, or Lyin’ Brian Williams (remember when he totally fabricated a War Story trying to make himself into a hero, & got fired. A very dishonest journalist!) and the crew of degenerate Comcast (NBC/MSNBC) Trump haters, who do whatever Brian & Steve tell them to do.” President Trump continued. “Like CNN, NBC is also way down in the ratings. But @FoxNews, who failed in getting the very BORING Dem debates, is now loading up with Democrats & even using Fake unsourced @nytimes as a “source” of information (ask the Times what they paid for the Boston Globe, & what they sold it for (lost 1.5 Billion Dollars), or their old headquarters building disaster, or their unfunded liability? @FoxNews is changing fast, but they forgot the people who got them there!”
President Trump then attacked the Times story as fake news.
The President correctly pointed out that last fall during the midterm election campaign the fake news media would routinely call Trump a liar for stating the migrant caravans making their way toward the border represented a crisis.
“The Fake News Media, in particular the Failing @nytimes, is writing phony and exaggerated accounts of the Border Detention Centers. First of all, people should not be entering our Country illegally, only for us to then have to care for them. We should be allowed to focus on United States Citizens first.” President Trump added “Border Patrol, and others in Law Enforcement, have been doing a great job. We said there was a Crisis – the Fake News & the Dems said it was “manufactured.” Now all agree we were right, but they always knew that. They are crowded (which we brought up, not them) because the Dems won’t change the Loopholes and Asylum. Big Media Con Job!”
Fox News morphing into another CNN would spell disaster for American democracy.
Every other media outlet already works to advance the Democrat Party agenda.
Fox News is the only mainstream media network that dares to question the dominant liberal narrative that permeates the news.
Donald Trump is firing up a warning alarm that Americans could be losing that counterbalance to the liberal media.
