Fox is the mouthpiece of billionaires that specializes in brainwashing millions. It should not even be allowed to exist, Donald Trump would not be in office now and 95,000 people wouldn't be dead if it didn't exist. We would not have invaded Iraq without Fox News cheerleading. We wouldn't have bankrupted the country to give the rich tax cuts without Fox cheerleading. Our EPA wouldn't be letting industries pollute our rivers without Fox.
I have zero respect for people who get their news from Fox and I am related to a few of them who I haven't spoken to in years.

Fox must be hedging bets. It wants some sort of new shtick if Trump loses.

Fox News started accumulating lawsuits for portraying Trump's coronavirus rhetoric as reality. Not a good business model.

He won't like the latest Fox News poll ...

The Fox News poll that showed Trump's overall approvals at 49% in April and 48% in March now puts him at 44%.

Biden is now besting Trump by 8 points in the national head-to-head after the two were tied in April (talk about downward movement!). But the overall horse race at the moment isn't necessarily what's most troubling for Trump. Here are a few other data points:

- Just 20% say the economy is excellent/good while 49% say it's poor

- As Trump tries to tear down Barack Obama, voters in battleground states have a favorable view of Obama by nearly a two-to-one margin: 64% favorable versus 35% unfavorable (Trump's at 42% favorable/55% unfavorable in battlegrounds)

- Trump is absolutely sucking wind with the suburban women who helped deliver the House to Democrats in 2018 at 33% favorable/66% unfavorable; Biden is widely popular among the demographic, with 57% favorable/39% unfavorable

Fox would be wise not to place all their eggs in one basket (case), but I'm not convinced of that happening across the board yet.

You have to remember who we're talking about here. Trump has made a career out of expressing the voice of the poor, aggrieved white man of privilege. Fox and its viewers eat that up like maggots on rotting meat.

Even if Trump gets the boot, Fox could easily switch back to its basic formula of rape, murder, immigrants and Liberals Out Of Control. It has obviously been successful from a revenue perspective, as their viewers keep coming back for more airing of grievances.

FOX has many good years ahead.

If Trump loses, they'll have a multitude of lawsuits to cover as Trump works his "election fraud" case up to the Supreme Court.

If Trump loses, there are three (that we know about) State Attorney Generals who are anxiously waiting to get their mitts on "citizen" Donald Trump and the rest of his clan. They've been saving up.

Don't worry about FOX. Trump will keep them busy.

Fox News only cares about what Fox thinks will make Fox the most money. I can't even keep track of all of the former Fox performers who have said exactly that after they left the company. If Trump wants Fox's help then he should just pay them off. The people that run the place have no journalistic ethics.
