    Fox News announced on Tuesday that it was hiring conservative commentator Mark Levin to host a new show on Sundays at 10 pm, drawing the network ever closer to its pro-Trump base and further protecting it from future competition on the right. “It’s clearly another step in Fox News channel’s evolution to a more Trump-friendly series of programming,” said Dan Shelley, the executive director of the Radio Television Digital News Association. “It’s right in their current wheelhouse.” Levin, who arguably ranks just behind Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity for influence in the world of conservative talk radio hosts, has been...

    One thing we can all take comfort in is that their best days are behind them and the Fox/Newscorp brand is in the process of being utterly decimated. And the trajectory is downward, sharply so. Cord-cutting was already happening at an impressive pace before the NFL debacle - which FOX is heavily invested in Lots more cord-cutting, and lots of Murdoch properties losing money and influence badly. Almost nobody reading their periodicals. Their target audience has seemingly become solely well connected swamp-dwellers residing in the DC-NY corridor, the rest of you can go f--- yourselves. They want to be the...

    Fox News’ Tucker Carlson reported Monday that according to sources, CNN had reporters discredit former DNC interim chair Donna Brazile over her revelations that made Hillary Clinton look bad.WATCH:(video at link)Carlson said, “According to highly informed sources we spoke to–highly informed–top management at CNN directed its employees to undermine Brazile’s credibility. Anchors and producers were vocally offended by her attacks on their friends, the Clintons. If you’ve been watching that channel, you may have noticed CNN’s anchors suggesting that Donna Brazile cannot be trusted, precisely because she took part in efforts to break the primaries for Clinton.” The Daily Caller co-founder then played a clip of CNN hosts trying to make...

    Fox News Channel says it won’t air any more ads from a wealthy Democratic donor advocating President Donald Trump’s impeachment due its viewers’ strong negative reaction. One negative reaction was from Trump himself, who tweeted that donor Tom Steyer was “wacky and totally unhinged.” Steyer, a billionaire hedge fund operator, calls on television viewers to sign a petition urging Trump’s impeachment. His lawyer, Brad Deutsch, said Monday that 1.5 million people had signed the petition.

    21st Century Fox has been holding talks to sell most of the company to Walt Disney Co., leaving behind a media company tightly focused on news and sports, according to people familiar with the situation. The talks have taken place over the last few weeks and there is no certainty they will lead to a deal. The two sides are not currently talking at this very moment, but given the on again, off again nature of the talks, they could be revisited. For Fox, the willingness to engage in sale talks with Disney stems from a growing belief among its...

    CHULA VISTA, Calif. – A sweet act of kindness was caught on camera, and a Chula Vista mother is hoping to find out who the boy is that left Halloween candy at her doorstep for others to take. Kim Manalo and her family left a bowl of candy out while she took her kids trick or treating on Halloween night. After coming home to an empty candy bowl, Kim immediately thought the worst. "Once we got around the block the bowl was empty. I wasn't too surprised but I was hoping it wasn't one kid or an adult," said Manalo....

    Fox is developing a potential new incarnation of its Emmy-winning drama series that would have a female lead and take the real-time format of the terrorism-themed original and apply it to a different arena, criminal justice. The project, which has received a script commitment, hails from 24 franchise executive producers Howard Gordon and Imagine’s Brian Grazer, as well as former The Killing writer-producer Jeremy Doner and the franchise’s production companies, 20th Century Fox TV and Imagine TV. Doner will write the script with Gordon, who ran the original series. Details about the premise are sketchy, but I hear that the...

    TV network executives are scrambling to solve the NFL ratings decline and are looking to possibly cut games on Thursday to prevent “over-saturation.” According to Sports Business Journal, there are talks to cut “Thursday Night Football” from 18 games a season to eight games. The report states there is a plan to pull games played in the UK back to 1 p.m. ET, or 6 p.m. London time. “Ten years ago, the NFL had 32 game windows through week six,” the publication said. “This year, it is up to 39, a 22 percent increase. It’s even more crowded in college,...

    "You know, am I mad at God? Yeah, I'm mad at him," O'Reilly said on the latest episode of his web series, "No Spin News." "I wish I had more protection. I wish this stuff didn't happen. I can't explain it to you. Yeah, I'm mad at him." He then said that he derives perspective from the tribulations of others, including Kate Steinle, a woman who was allegedly shot by an undocumented immigrant who has been the subject of numerous O'Reilly commentaries.

    Vicente Fox Quesada is a former Mexican president. As such, you'd think that he'd use Twitter -- where he's very active -- first and foremost to comment on Mexican affairs and to give the current administration some desperately needed advice. Not so much. You see, Vicente has an obsession. It's called "Donald Trump." Time and again, Fox criticizes Trump. He responds to the American president's tweets, to his statements in interviews, and attacks him even when Trump doesn't actually say anything. Yep, Fox is waging his own little private war against the leader of the most powerful country on earth....

    Last January, six months after Fox News ousted its chairman amid a sexual harassment scandal, the network’s top-rated host at the time, Bill O’Reilly, struck a $32 million agreement with a longtime network analyst to settle new sexual harassment allegations, according to two people briefed on the matter — an extraordinarily large amount for such cases. Although the deal has not been previously made public, the network’s parent company, 21st Century Fox, acknowledges that it was aware of the woman’s complaints about Mr. O’Reilly. They included allegations of repeated harassment, a nonconsensual sexual relationship and the sending of gay pornography...

    In October 18’s episode of Star, Hollywood continues its audience-repelling strategy of using entertainment as a medium for heavy-handed, left-wing proselytizing. The Fox drama follows main character Alex’s boyfriend, Derek—a Black Lives Matter activist—as he attempts to get out of his funk about being paralyzed and get out of the house. Alex encourages him to attend a Black Lives Matter meeting, because hey, nothing gets one out of one's funk quite like racist, anti-capitalist political activism. Instead, Derek takes a trip to a convenience store in his wheelchair. While shopping, he observes two white racists harassing a Muslim female cashier...

    CBS’ and Fox’s projected earnings will suffer a hit, according to two separate reports by Credit Suisse, and falling NFL ratings will continue to impact network earnings so long as they are on a downward trend. Why are earnings suffering? CBS’ crashing NFL ratings will directly impact company earnings, Omar Sheikh, Credit Suisse analyst, said. Special: 3 foods to avoid in 2017 “We expect third-quarter network advertising to decline 3 percent (previously +1 percent), driven by soft ratings for both the summer schedule and for the start of the NFL season,” Sheikh said, according to CNBC. “With only one of...

    The protests by NFL players during the National Anthem have been hurting the league's television ratings since last year. This season, as the protests have continued, the television ratings and ramifications for broadcasters have worsened. More bad news for the NFL: an analyst for Credit Suisse yesterday downgraded his price and earnings per share targets for 21st Century Fox in part due to NFL ratings that are coming in below market expectations. "We trim our 2018/19 EPS forecasts … ahead of Q1 earnings," analyst Omar Sheikh wrote in a note to clients Thursday. "The key near term headwinds are soft...
