Tuesday News Roundup: The Days of Fox News Ratings Dominance Die With its Election Fraud Betrayal

Happy Birthday to the U.S. Marine Corps – 245 years old today. Semper Fi!

US Marine Corps issues video statement on naked photo sharing scandal - The Verge

The big “news” last night was this:

Let’s also remember that, 20 months ago, Barr authorized John Durham to investigate Spygate and Obamagate. Here we sit, 20 months later, with a big ol’ bag of nothing. All the bad guys still walking free, most of them with lucrative contributor deals with CNN or MSNBC.

Any Trump supporter who is getting excited that William Barr sent a letter to his U.S. attorneys that contains nothing more than a general authorization to investigate “irregularities” is living in a world dominated by disappointment and losing.

Hey, here’s something for Barr to investigate:

This is a serious statement: Joe Biden is in clear violation of the Logan Act if he is indeed making such calls under the pretense that he is representing the United States. Joe Biden is not remotely the president-elect, and he has yet to be certified the “winner” of a single state in this election. The Mueller people spent four years persecuting General Mike Flynn for a phone call to a single foreign diplomat during a transition period that was indeed official.

But as we all know by now, Joe Biden is immune from real investigation, thanks currently to the refusal by William Barr to act.

That’s enough about Barr.

Well, ok, one more thing:

Sounds like kind of a big deal, right? But then you find out this, thanks to Ric Grenell:

Oh. That’s the kind of Republican William Barr is – the kind who still has Lois Lerner deputies employed in his department 21 months into his tenure.

There. That’s enough about William Barr. Going on is just too depressing.

Hey, how about that Fox News, huh? – Yesterday, leftist Fox host Neil Cavuto cut away from White House spokesperson Kayleigh McEnany about 30 seconds into her opening statement. The reason why Cavuto cut away? Because she truthfully said that Biden/Harris and their fellow Democrats of “welcoming fraud” and “welcoming illegal voting”.

Given that each and every instance of blatant voter fraud we have witnessed over the past 8 days was suborned or outright created by Democrat operatives, McEnany’s statement is manifestly true. Frankly, that statement has been true of every election held in this country since the Democrat Party was born. It is a fact of American life that only the willfully ignorant or pathetically stupid even bother to dispute anymore.

Tucker Carlson, in his opening monologue last night, took a not-so-veiled shot at Cavuto and his pathetic antics. From a story at Mediaite:

Tucker Carlson seemed to take a shot at his Fox News colleague Neil Cavuto — who made headlines earlier in the day by cutting out of a news conference with White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany with a scathing dismissal of the voter fraud conspiracies she was pushing.

During his opening monologue Monday night, Carlson made a vague comment in relation to the evidence-free election fraud claims being pushed by President Donald Trump’s campaign.

“In a democracy, you can’t ignore honest questions from citizens,” Carlson said. “You can’t dismiss them out of hand is crazy or immoral for asking. You can’t just cut away from coverage you don’t like.”

[End]
Carlson has a history of hitting back at Cavuto and other execrable Fox hosts whenever they put on their on-air auditions for a job at CNN. Carlson can get away with doing this given that, until this past week, his show was the highest-rated on cable TV.

Unfortunately for Carlson and Fox News in general, those heady days came to a screeching halt last week as Fox’s election coverage was so obviously in the tank for Biden and the Democrats that it has caused a mass flight of Trump supporters away from the channel to NewsMax and OAN:

From a piece at the National Pulse:

Last Friday’s ratings for the supposedly “conservative” outlet were less than both CNN and MSNBC for the first time in years, according to an internal Fox document containing viewership analytics.
The numbers show that on November 6th, Fox pulled 2,266,000 viewers while CNN saw nearly twice as many at 4,009,000 viewers. Similarly, MSNBC, per Fox’s internal numbers, counted 2,983,000 viewers, beating Fox by over 700,000 viewers.

[End]

Yikes. This is not only the result of Fox’s making a call for Biden in Arizona while voters there still stood in lines waiting to vote: This mass exodus has been a long, long time in the making, as Fox has chosen to feed viewers steadily-rising doses of leftist pablum from a growing army of paid leftist contributors like Donna Brazile, Marie Harf, Chris Wallace and Juan Williams.

The Arizona call did serve as sort of catalyst for Fox’s audience collapse, as did its election coverage in general, which paled in comparison to CNN’s. John King and Wolf Blitzer just ran circles around the insipid Bill Hemmer and Bret Baier on Election Night, exposing once again a fundamental weakness that has lingered for well over a decade now and which Fox management obviously has no intention of ever addressing.

The simple truth about Fox News is that it has been trending steadily leftwards since Roger Ailes was run off and Paul Ryan was added to its board of directors. Fox no longer has much of what could be truthfully called a “news division” anymore, and has become little more than a platform for a bunch of untalented hacks who serve as its hosts to hawk their latest ghost-written books and fake Fox polls.

Carlson remains an island of sanity in Fox’s lineup, and Maria Bartiromo, Charles Payne and Lou Dobbs continue to do great work on Fox Business. Otherwise, the place is a wasteland filled with annoying, incessant self-promoters like Sean Hannity and untalented hacks who are too numerous to name.

Bottom line: Conservative thinkers out here in Flyover Country made Fox News, and the flight of conservative thinkers out here in Flyover Country will end up killing it. That’s life.

That is all.

Today’s news moves at a faster pace than ever. Whatfinger.com is the only real conservative alternative to Drudge, and deserves to become everyone’s go-to source for keeping up with all the latest events in real time.

    All you folks up here in the great white north of New England: not only is OAN (One America News) available up here on Verizon FiOS, but Newsmax was recently added. They are both lined up next to the leftist news channels, just keep hitting the channel-up button on your remote.

      I QUIT WATCHING TV IN 2007 FOR SEVERAL REASONS: THE LETTERBOX FORMAT BEGAN AND I HATE IT! YOU NEVER SEE THE TOP OF THEIR HEADS OR THE GROUND THAT THEY WALK ON! THEN IN 2005 A SAUDI SHEIK BECAME THE SECOND LARGEST SHARE HOLDER OVERNIGHT, AND FOX DE-EVOLVED INTO CNN BY 2007. THE OTHER TWO REASONS THAT I QUIT WATCHING TV IS THAT THEY REPLACED STRAIGHT WHITE MALE CHARACTERS WITH MINORITY’S, AND HOMOSEXUALS. IN SOME CASES A WHITE WOMAN WITH A BLACK WOMAN (CATWOMAN). A STRAIGHT CHARACTER WITH A HOMOSEXUAL. OR AS IS THE CASE MOST RECENTLY WITH CAPTAIN MARVEL A STRAIGHT SPANISH/INDIAN GUY WITH BLACK HAIR IS REPLACED WITH A BLOND, FEMALE,WHITE, LESBIAN.

    Traditionally – the DOJ never investigated Voter Fraud until the election was over and certified.
    Their procedure stated that they never wanted to impact an election.

    That is stupid as hell. But, that is why Barr’s declaration is so important.

      We’ll see Matthew whether Bagpipe Barr’s actions mean anything more than his Obamagate actions to date. I hope so, but I’m not optimistic.

      If an eventual btfsplk presidency comes to pass, he would be wise to retain Bagpipe Barr as AG as the “Republican” (see no evil, hear no evil Sergeant Schultz) Barr is perfect cover for all the Schiff that goes on in the District of Corruption. It would show “bipartisanship” and if he ever got off his ass and began to actually uphold the rule of law and began prosecuting anyone who engaged in the coup d’état, he would be fired (which would be welcomed by the MSM (D)) faster than he can blow his instrument.

    Comcast/Xfinity/NBC or whatever they want to call themselves are coincidentally based out of the voting fraud hotspot of Philadelphia, do not carry OAN. I am going to pay my bill in person at their store this week and am going to tell them they have one month to get OAN on their network or I will cancel all TV access and return their DVRs and save close to a hundred dollars per month. I will have internet service only from Xfinity.

    This will also end the carriage fees I am forced to pay to ESPN.DNC.BLM or DNCNN, or PMSDNC or a myriad of other leftist channels, none of which I watch. I urge all other “cord cutting” Comcast customers to do the same.

    I spend less money on my necessary (electric and water) utilities than I do on Xfinity TV. It is insane for me to continue to involuntarily support the ESPNs and DNCNNs in order to get some programming I like.

    I already regained much productivity in my life by punting on the NFL – Sunday noon to 2200, and Monday and Thursday nights; I can gain much more and pay much less by adding by subtracting the “idiot box”.

    We also left fox for OAN and Newsmax, I was hopeful that Greg Gutfield would rise to the occasion. He did, but for the left…Hannity is a repetitive blowhard and the rest are just bobble heads…My wife still holds out hope for Laura Ingram

    It’s been BlazeTV for me lately. On election night I watched Steven Crowder for about six hours, had Fox on the big screen but it was muted. Crowder was streaming CNN in the corner, had his own analyst checking numbers, and had 500k people on his stream that night. Crowder did a video yesterday about Fox, parroting much of what y’all are saying.

    On Fox, I’ll typically have the big 3 up in the evenings but the only one I devote attention to is Tucker. I mostly only have Hannity up until I can get to Laura’s monologue. Other than that, I’ll watch Gutfeld on Saturday nights, and you could tell this last weekend he and Tyrus were being muzzled.

    But hey, Curse of Oak Island is back on tonight, sorry Hannity.

    I cut the cable well over a year ago. I can watch everything that interests me by streaming on line. I may have to wait a day or two for some of it, but that is fine with me. Any monthly subscription for a multi channel subscription service, feeds the fake news as they all get a cut. My wife recently signed up for Peacock and that will be a discussion item down the road. I haven’t gotten totally away from feeding fake news, however it is pennies at this point in time. The way to defeat capitalistic enterprises, is to defang them by decreasing their income, or somehow costing them money. Money is the only language they speak.

    FOX also called my home state of VA 30 minutes after the polls closed at 7PM, with Trump running 60% up until almost midnight! While my formerly red state was a foregone conclusion, these kind of “early calls” Do influence voters in other time zones. As far as FOX TV goes, haven’t watched them since Glenn Beck was lucid, and like DB his won self, I prefer to get my news in print form. I can digest numerous written articles in the time it takes a talking head to go from one commercial I could care less about to the next, saving me time and sanity. It is my most sincere hope that if DJT does indeed lose, that he will team up with Rush Limbaugh and create a conservative media empire that will eclipse all others combined!

    I never trusted Fox because they employed Shepard Smith, Chris Wallace, and Juan Williams. No one would believe a word they say unless they were on the same side. Then Fox wanted my money to join Fox and Friends. NO WAY! Bill Barr? I remember reading from QAnon that Bush Sr. was running a pedophile ring in the White House and Barr was his AG. I remember laughing at the time. I’m not laughing anymore.

      Using all CAPS loses any meaning very quickly.

      Forty five years ago, just who was SEEKING OUT VOTER FRAUD?

      Please remind me of when Chicago’s Mayor Daily and who in LBJ’s corrupt Texas political machine went to jail in the1960 Nixon-Kennedy election that was SIXTY years ago I must have missed that.

    Except for Tucker and Justice Jeanine I am through with Fox. I don’t think either one will last much longer at Fox. I will be watching OAN or NewsMax.

    Gen. Flynn’s Atty. Sydney Powell has started a website called Defending the Republic.org. She is accepting donations for the legal challenges in righting this ship. President Trump needs to keep fighting for us and it will not be cheap.
