Fox News, the channel conservatives used to love and trust, is gone. On Wednesday, President Trump made an announcement about the failure of the once-beloved news station on Twitter.
Ratings are dropping for Fox News, as conservatives seek alternative media sources for their daily news, such as One America News Network and Newsmax.
“Can’t believe how badly @FoxNews is doing in the ratings. They played right into the hands of the Radical Left Democrats, & now are floating in limboland. Hiring fired @donnabraziIe, and far worse, allowing endless negative and unedited commercials. @FoxNews is dead. Really Sad!” Trump tweeted Wednesday.

As reported by Todd Starnes, “The fair and balanced network was killed by an unchecked HR department that hired radical leftists along with sex and gender revolutionaries. They were more interested in diversity and inclusion than holding on to their base. The first cable television news channel killed by wokeness.”
With the addition of Donna Brazile, who is widely known as the woman who shared questions with Hillary Clinton prior to a debate, Fox News began losing its viewers. Chris Wallace‘s disastrous moderation in the debate between President Trump and Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden pushed even more viewers away.
There are still a few good hosts on the channel, such as Sean Hannity and Tucker Carlson, but the channel cannot sustain itself with just two shows.
Fox News began covering President Trump in the same biased way that all other mainstream media outlets did, cutting off one of his last avenues to be portrayed in a fair light to the American people.
“Perhaps the biggest difference between 2016 and 2020 is @FoxNews, despite the fact that I went from 63,000,000 Votes to 75,000,000 Votes, a record 12,000,000 Vote increase. Obama went down 3,000,000 Votes, and won. Rigged Election!!!” President Trump added on Twitter.
In a report by Axios, a source has alleged that the president may be looking to settle the score with Fox News, and many conservatives hope that he will.
“He wants to make them pay. People at the highest levels of Fox have reached out to his people to try and repair the relationship but that he has no desire to do that,” the source told Axios.
