Any semblance of journalistic authority which may have been claimed by Fox News has been shredded. The network is now nothing more than one more left-wing political hatchet for the Democrat Party. Fair and Balanced is a laughing stock.
Megyn Kelly, Bret Baier and Chris Wallace should have resigned their positions rather than carry out their assault on Donald Trump and Ted Cruz at the first Republican debate last Thursday. They should have quit. If they had an ounce of journalistic principle within them, they would have quit and not brought their bludgeons to that arena.
FOX NEWS LURCHES LEFT AS MURDOCH’S SONS TAKE CONTROL OF MEDIA DYNASTY
Here’s the beginning:
Rupert Murdoch handed over 21st Century Fox, the conglomerate behind Fox News, to sons James and Lachlan July 1, 2015. James is now CEO and Lachlan executive co-chairman. Last year Murdoch elevated his sons to prominent positions, James to co-COO and Lachlan to non-executive co-chairman, but the turnover of the conglomerate came sooner than expected.
For 15 years, Roger Ailes has enjoyed near total autonomy as head of Fox News, but Ailes’ sovereign rule ended abruptly with the move. A 21st Century Fox spokesperson told The Hollywood Reporter from now on, “Roger will report to Lachlan and James.”…
…To say that Ailes and Murdoch’s son James have a strained relationship would be a bit of an understatement. James, whose wife once worked for the Clinton Foundation, is a rabid environmentalist who led the campaign to make News Corp a carbon-neutral company…
Here’s the end of it, which alludes to the attempted “taking out” of Donald Trump during the so-called debate:
…In spite of the moderators’ collective efforts to take care of “This Trump Thing,” Trump managed to survive their inquisition, but the network that Ailes had built over the past 15 years did not. Fox News died a humiliating death at Quicken Loans Arena August 6, 2015, in front of 24 million viewers. In display of solidarity with its leftist alphabet and cable network counterparts, the network relinquished any pretense of credibility.
Yes. Fox News is by all appearances now but a another tool in the hands of Hillary Clinton et al. So are Mr. Baier, Mr. Wallace and Ms. Kelly.
