Sometimes it’s hard to tell if President Donald Trump is really on the warpath about an individual or situation when he takes to Twitter to storm about them or it. On Wednesday, however, there was little doubt that President Trump is at the least disappointed with Fox News for the turn their newsrooms have taken of late.
“The New Fox News is letting millions of GREAT people down!” Trump wrote on Twitter. “We have to start looking for a new News Outlet. Fox isn’t working for us anymore!”
The president ripped Fox News for allowing Democrats like former Democratic National Committee chairwoman Donna Brazile to spread her views on the network. He also accused anchors like Sandra Smith for failing to challenge them.
“Just watched Fox News heavily promoting the Democrats through their DNC Communications Director, spewing out whatever she wanted with zero pushback by anchor, Sandra Smith,” Trump said.
Brazile was a guest on the program on Tuesday morning.
Trump expressed surprise that Fox was open to Democrats, recalling that the DNC refused to allow the network to host any Democrat debates.
“Terrible considering that Fox couldn’t even land a debate, the Dems give them NOTHING!” he wrote.
Trump criticized Fox’s decision to hire Brazile as well as continuing to offer a platform to anti-Trump employees Juan Williams and Shepard Smith.
“HOPELESS & CLUELESS!” Trump wrote. “They should go all the way LEFT and I will still find a way to Win – That’s what I do, Win. Too Bad!”
What Fox and the other news programming networks do not realize is that an entire segment of their would be audiences are simply tuning out of their incessant negative pounding on the president. The reason Fox’s ratings are so high is because they are the least left and anti-American of the news outlets. The president is a lot more popular than they are. Sooner or later that’s going to be brought home to them.
