Departing (we hope) Pres. Trump has been using FOX News as his personal news source…that is until he was contradicted by FOX on air….and he now has a hard on for the news group.
What to do….what to do?
About 4 years ago I wrote a couple of posts about the idea that Trump would try and start his own news network…..(the post did not appeal to many and got very little attention)…..here are the posts I one cares to read what I wrote before I go on…..
Now that my reader is caught up….the news is that Trump may start his own news group to get his message of hate and discord out more readily…..since FOX is not in his corner so much now….
President Donald Trump is considering launching a digital media company to challenge Fox News‘ supremacy among right-wing viewers, according to a report published at Axios on Thursday.
According to the report, Trump is fuming over Fox’s coverage before and during the 2020 election—especially the way the network preempted other corporate media outlets in calling the close race in Arizona for President-elect Joe Biden.
The president’s vexation with Fox—whose opinion program hosts including Sean Hannity, Tucker Carlson, and Laura Ingraham have been among his staunchest media allies—was apparent even before the Arizona controversy during an Election Day appearance on “Fox & Friends,” another Trump safe space.
“Fox has changed a lot,” Trump said. Discussing the different results of the 2016 and 2020 elections, the president remarked: “Somebody said, what’s the biggest difference between this and four years ago? And I say Fox.”
“I’m not complaining, I’m just telling people,” he added. “It’s one of the biggest differences this season compared to last.”
Being typical to form….Trump will torture and attack anyone that does not show support for his lameass ideas….and that includes FOX News.
Will he be successful?
I believe he can find the funding from the fascists in the business world……and support from the closest fascists in our society.
