I’ve long been a fan of Fox News, especially with the lame lack of alternative options of TV news here in the UK.
Unfortunately they pulled the plug on the channel here in the UK back in 2017 when it left Sky, the only widely available paid satelite TV service we have over here. So I’ve had to make do with a patchy supply of short clips on their YouTube channel ever since.
This doesn’t mean I have been totally out of the loop, as I regularly read opinions on the channel via my army of grassroots fellow conservatives over in the USA on the usual assortment of popular social media platforms.
It would appear that the attempts of Fox News to provide coverage of the 2020 US Presidential elections really stuck the middle finger up at their core audience, and instead they had the really bright idea of instead pandering to the morons who for years have openly mocked their news channel, and slagged it off based on perceptions they gained despite rarely if ever even watching it.
The first fatal screw-up they made was to prematurely calling the results for the state of Arizona.
They then went on to prematurely call the result in favour of Creepy Joe Biden & Heels-up Harris before officialdom have made anything official.
According to an article on Gateway Pundit, the results to their viewing figures were not pretty come Saturday.

Fox News has bitten the hand that feeds them one too many times and now they’re paying the pricehttps://t.co/bAUT6HVUDG

They hammered more nails into their coffin by canning the ever popular Judge Jeanine Pirro on Saturday night, apparently because she planned to do a show exposing Democrat voter fraud.

Fans on social media were livid, vowing to never to watch the Fox News channel ever again, blocking it from their Cable boxes, an uninstalling Fox News apps from their smart devices.
Deleted the FoxNews app from all my devices.
Though they have some excellent journalists and commentators there, the leadership of Fox has betrayed their viewers and an entire nation.#FoxNewsTraitors

I not only unfollowed @rupertmurdoch’s Fox News, I blocked them.
Aside from Tucker, Sean and Levin, we haven’t watched them for one second since they called AZ with voters still in line.

There were further calls for people to unfollow them on social media, which seemed to have some, but limited effect.

The futures of Fox News and Murdoch properties don’t look as promising or profitable as they did November 2nd.
