    Fox News isn't working for Trump anymore?

    If you believe Fox News never worker for Trump, you disagree with Trump on that.

    In one of his recent tweets he wrote: “The New @FoxNews is letting millions of GREAT people down! We have to start looking for a new News Outlet. Fox isn’t working for us anymore!”

    In other words, Trump agrees with those who have claimed Fox News was working for Trump in their more “fair and balanced” approach.

    Quite interesting to see the no-longer-so-chosen-one reveal so much about his view and journalism. It is going to be interesting to see how things develop.

    The Washington Post has an interesting analysis:

    It’s not the first time Trump has attacked Fox in recent months. He’s applying increasing pressure on the network and apparently hoping it yields even more favorable coverage. His strategy makes sense: Publicly urging supporters to move to another channel, such as the ridiculously pro-Trump One America News Network, could have a significant effect on Fox’s bottom line.

    But as mentioned above, this is a symbiotic relationship — it’s not a one-way street. Just as Fox could lose viewers if it alienates Trump and he pushes people to other outlets, Trump relies upon Fox to inform and, in many cases, rally his base. In fact, it’s so influential to such a huge portion of his base that, if it were to buck him over his threats or even just be somewhat less favorable, it could conceivably do him real damage in his 2020 reelection race. https://www.washingtonpost.com/polit...?noredirect=on

    As I said in another thread, the way Trump works is if you are doing something he likes, you are The Best, Terrific, a Good Friend, but if you are doing something he doesn't like, you are The Worst! Terrible! So Sad!

    It's just the way he talks. Tomorrow Fox can be the best again if they do something he likes.

    Hasn't FOX News been bought out by a leftist media company now?

    When the good folks at Fox start getting tingles up their arms when speaking of Trump, I'll get worried.

    Right, and he expects his base supporters to follow his lead, which the lemmings usually do. Like you, making excuses for him; No big deal "it's just the way he talks." The way he talks should tell you what he is, dumbell.

    I think he's partially right - Fox is moving a tiny bit moderate. But part of what he's complaining about is Fox's tightening of its journalism.

    And yeah, we do need another large conservative outlet. And a broadening of conservative outlets in general.

    My best friend favors OANN, except that they frequently rerun taped news segments throughout the day. I don't like it as well as FNC.

    Yes, you need more outlets to tell you what you want to hear. Lies that is!
