    Senator Mitt Romney (R-UT) argued on this week’s broadcast of “Fox News Sunday” that the impeachment against former President Donald Trump would bring national unity. Anchor Chis Wallace asked, “Senator, do you support holding this impeachment trial, and what do you think the rules should be on the length of the trial and whether or not to call witnesses?” Romney said, “Well, we’re certainly going to have a trial. I wish that weren’t necessary, with the president’s conduct with regard to the call to the secretary of state in Georgia as well as the incitation towards the insurrection that led...
  • Joe Scarborough Tries to Scare Off Fox News Sponsors

    Is it ethical for one network to try to scare off a competitor's sponsors? The question arises because MSNBC's Joe Scarborough sought today to scare off Fox News sponsors. At the beginning of today's Morning Joe, Scarborough, speaking of Fox News, said: "We’ll worry about our channel and let them worry about their channel." But Scarborough soon went back on his word. Just moments later, he actively tried to warn sponsors away from Fox News, saying: "Fox News had someone I know, a former leader of the Republican Party, saying that Democrats wanted—and I’m using his words here—Democrats wanted to,...
  • Right-wing media holds Biden bash-fest, foreshadowing its next four years of coverage

    President Joe Biden implored Americans in his inaugural speech to come together and unify, but the right-wing media machine has wasted no time dishonestly trashing him — foreshadowing what the next four years of coverage from outlets like Fox News will look like. On Fox News Wednesday night, the network decided against airing most of the "Celebrating America" inauguration special — which every other network carried — opting to instead allow propagandists like Tucker Carlson and Sean Hannity to deliver fiery anti-Biden sermons.

    Politics editor Chris Stirewalt, along with nearly two dozen digital journalists, have been fired from Fox News. Stirewalt is listed by the New York Times as one of two “senior leaders” exiting the network as Fox “tries to lure back viewers who balked at its coverage of the 2020 election and its aftermath.” The other is Bill Sammon, Fox News’s longtime Washington bureau chief, who told staff that he would be retiring at the end of the month. Stirewalt, however, was “fired” according to the Times, along with “roughly 20 Fox News digital journalists” who were laid off on Tuesday....

Two executives involved in the early call of Arizona for Joe Biden on Election Night, angering many conservatives, are no longer employed at the cable network whose ratings took a subsequent nosedive.

    Parler CEO John Matze flipped the script on Amazon, which had accused his platform of inciting violence and removed it from its web services as a result. Matze and his family have since gone into hiding after reportedly receiving death threats. Matze accused Amazon Web Services (AWS) of running a “PR campaign” with other tech companies against his company Parler. He said that these companies claimed “falsely, you know — without any evidence really other than a couple of articles that didn’t have any evidence either — that, you know, Parler, somehow, was responsible for inciting violence.” Matze said that...

    As ratings tank amid hostile coverage of former President Donald Trump, Fox News is purging its newsroom in an attempt to salvage the network’s fading brand. Political editor Chris Stirewalt, a NeverTrumper, and several digital editors were fired Tuesday; on Election Night, Stirewalt defended the network’s decision to call Arizona for Joe Biden, a move that infuriated the president and Fox News viewers. (The outcome of Arizona’s election wasn’t finalized until late November.)

    Fox News politics editor Chris Stirewalt has been laid off from the outlet along with several other members of its digital staff. When Fox News called Arizona for Joe Biden in November before other networks, Stirewalt and his team came under fire from Republicans who said it was premature. A source familiar with the matter, however, said the restructuring decisions weren't in response to coverage of the 2020 election. The Washington Examiner reached out to the network for comment on the matter. A spokesperson declined to comment on specific details, citing employee confidentiality. "As we conclude the 2020 election cycle,...

    American Conservative ^ | 1/19/2021 | Curt Mills
    Several elements of Carlson’s monologue — which was swiftly lapped up by the faithful on social media — distinguish him from his forebears. He’s also drawn lines for potential rivals to cross, if they dare. First, and strikingly, is Carlson’s pronounced willingness to strike out against Conservative, Inc., and the small government apparatus that funded much of the early opposition to the last Democratic president. “Members of the media call for a secret police agency. This is the stuff of libertarian nightmares,” Carlson said. “It’s what they claim to hate. Where are they now? Why isn’t billionaire libertarian man of...

    In a Monday op-ed, the Washington Post called on heavyweight telecommunications corporations to shut down conservative cable news outlets including Fox News, One America News, and Newsmax TV, comparing the need to do so with that of shutting down foreign terrorist influencers. The essay, penned by prominent Trump critic Max Boot, a Post columnist and CNN global affairs analyst, begins by explaining how merely holding the president accountable for “his role in inciting this violent insurrection” is “insufficient.” “There is a whole infrastructure of incitement that will remain intact even after Trump leaves office,” Boot writes. “Just as we do...

    In what surely will be a topic of debate in the days ahead, Fox News opinion host Tucker Carlson in his opening monologue last night came out swinging, declaring that: “Our capital city is currently under military occupation. By Inauguration Day, there are expected to be more than 26,000 armed federal troops in Washington. No living American has seen a moment like the one we’re watching now.” He pressed on nearly twenty minutes overall. Here is a little more of what he said (video above),

    Fox News host Tucker Carlson argued the arrival of thousands of National Guard troops in Washington, D.C., ahead of President-elect Joe Biden's inauguration is a "message about power." His 22-minute monologue on Monday made the case that the deployment, captured in harrowing images of the nation's capital in lockdown ahead of a transfer of presidential power, is needlessly large. "So, no matter what they are telling you, those 26,000 federal troops are not there for your safety," Carlson said. "Instead, unmistakably, the Democratic Party is using those troops to send the rest of us a message about power. We're in...
