For years, Donald Trump and Fox News have been amazed.
former the president would call in the right news channel, apparently, whenever he wanted. Fox News anchors are pumped up up every word Trump says. Trump reverently watched the channel and in In 2019 alone, he sent 657 tweets. in response to Fox News or Fox Business programs.
Since then, however, things seem to changed. Trump, as the New York Times notes out, was not interviewed. on Fox News for more than 100 days.
Trump’s recent speech was largely ignored by the network and also in a sign that Fox News recognized alternative Republican presidential candidates available Mike Pence’s address was broadcast live, in its integrity.
FROM news canal retracted in billion-dollar lawsuit with Dominion voting systems over his claim to vote machine the company is forged with In the 2020 election, Trump’s ongoing lies about election fraud seem to have alarmed Rupert Murdoch. media titanium who owns Fox News.
Two of Murdoch’s newspapers, the New York Post and the Wall Street Journal, published scathing editorials. on Trump in July, former call twice- announced the impeachment of the 45th president, “unworthy to be the head of the executive branch of this country.” again”, and the latter called Trump “a president who stopped.” on January 6″.
The Washington Post reported this week that Murdoch had “lost his enthusiasm.” for Trump.
Channel started give Pence and Ron DeSantis, Governor of Florida, many of air-time including two prime time interviews in in space of five days ago, according to the New York Times. Tom Cotton, Senator from Arkansas who is also said he was juggling for president 2024 run has also was regular interviewee.
But while the seeming bouncing of Trump from Fox News was enthusiastically covered media many reporters of signs that the channel is not ready to let go of his lover just for now.
Recent study by Media Matters for America, a media guard dog, found that Fox News continues to discuss Trump far, far away more than any of his alleged rivals for 2024 nomination – specifically mentions Trump on Fox News times from January to July, and DeSantis and Pence received 1,083 and 589 mentions, respectively.
Angelo Carusone, president and chief executive officer of Media Matters, said the data indicated that there had been no deterioration in the situation. He said there might have been a slight change in tone, and that Trump may not have the “choke hold” he once had on Fox News – the days when it was seen that the channel was broadcasting to the “audience”. of one” probably over – but what coverage continues to be overwhelmingly positive.
“You were allowed attack Donald Trump during the primaries in 2015 and 2016 on Fox News. This is not happening now, never at all,” Carusone said.
For his part, Trump recently expressed dissatisfaction with the release of Fox News. 76-year-old, who known for being emotional, attacked Fox & Friends in July, after its host, Steve Ducey, suggested a straw poll. of potential 2024 candidates who showed Trump with 79% of in vote be accepted with pinch of salt.
Dusi hardly walked off on Trump is the owner just pointed to others more scientific, polls that showed that Trump lacks 79% support. But that was enough to cause disorder.
Fox and Friends just really messed up my poll numbers, no doubt on goal. What show it was terrible – went into the dark side’, Trump posted on Social truth, his sick right wing social media Platform.
Dominion’s claim may be reason for Trump’s absence. The company is suing Fox News for $1.6 billion, accusing its owner, Fox Corp, and the Murdochs in particular, of of allowing Fox News to strengthen Trump’s position false claims that the election campaign rigged the election for Joe Biden. It might be wise strategy not allow Trump will repeat these exact statements on Fox News during live interview.
Asked for comment, a Fox News spokesman said: “The debate among liberals media on this topic is reason FOX News exists and is the most viewed cable news channel in country with more spectators of every political persuasion than any other network”.
However, Carusone believes that any cooling on part of Fox News on Trump is likely to be temporary.
Channel hosts continue to engage in blurred segments where they talk about how Trump will deal with issues ranging from inflation to China to the “border crisis” that Fox News is headlining. And Trump’s alleged accomplishments at the time in office are still upheld.
“They still fetishize and fantasize, it’s just that there is no more public of oneCarusone said.
“There are others people in an audience they care about.”
