Fox News Losing Viewers
Recently, Fox News has seen a mass exodus of Trump supporters and other conservatives, who are fed up with the network’s sudden support for left-wing talking points, and its willingness to turn on President Trump and declare Joe Biden the president-elect.
.@FoxNews daytime ratings have completely collapsed. Weekend daytime even WORSE. Very sad to watch this happen, but they forgot what made them successful, what got them there. They forgot the Golden Goose. The biggest difference between the 2016 Election, and 2020, was @FoxNews!

The exodus began the night of the November election, when Fox News called Arizona for Joe Biden early on in the night, but refused to call states for Trump where he was clearly winning, such as Alaska.
Conservatives on social media immediately began calling out the news network for its sudden shift in favor of Democrats.
How in the world do those running @FoxNews still have jobs?
They've destroyed one of the most profitable brands in TV history in under a month.
I've never seen audience hemorrhage like this.

Laura Ingraham Turns on Trump Supporters
Laura Ingraham shared an article on Twitter from CNN, with the caption: “Not good. ‘Trump’s legal adviser Jenna Ellis in 2016 called him an ‘idiot’ and said his supporters didn’t care about ‘facts or logic’.'”

The article delved into posts reportedly made on Ellis’ personal Facebook page during the 2016 election, where she insulted the president and his supporters. Is this just another attempted hit piece on a Trump ally? Or, is this another example of a conservative who was concerned about Trump’s presidency prior to seeing the way he governed as one of the most conservative presidents in our lifetime?
