Faulkner admonished Sununu for calling Trump a coward for not debating. “No name calling,” she said. “We don't do name calling.”

Ironic. Trump's go to shtick is weak sauce name-calling.

“Hard to believe how one-sided Fox is,” Trump wrote in one post. “What a difference from past

If Trump really believed there was ever a time Fox was fair and balanced that seems like a good indicator he is suffering from some cognitive decline memory lapses.

Good ole' Fox....

Where the talking heads all "hate Trump passionately", think his election fraud claims are "mind-blowingly nuts", and want to "move on"...

Then once they go on air, say exactly the opposite and openly lie to their viewers...

It's all part of the Great MAGA Scam...

And Rupert had to pay almost a billion dollars for his part it it...

Trump's GREAT for Fox media ratings, meanwhile CNN and MSNBC in toilet, Biden's BAD for media ratings!!!

Best thing I've read about the Repubs recently: "They don't want solutions; they want problems."

Fox News, for all intents and purposes, should be called Trump News, the disinformation and misinformation news channel.

Likewise, the Republican Party is now the Trump Party named after the former Insurrectionist-in-Chief.

Hardly, still the largest name in news, less retractions than any other news outlet and most watched undisputed, now have they made mistakes in the past? Yes, should Murdoch have gotten involved in the news decision making? Absolutely not. The Murdoch’s don’t like Trump nor do they support him, but at the same time they both need each other, because Trump is newsworthy and Trump needs the exposure and reach, no other news channel reaches the masses the way FNC does. That’s just a fact and now more so than ever as Trump’s popularity shots through the roof.

Well, the majority of conservatives these days including myself think the Republican Party is a joke. True is head of the Republican Party, but the old guard Republicans or establishment has been hemorrhaging members in masses. These are the globalist and neocons that more and more conservatives reject.

Quite the opposite, check the polls, you got the parties confused again.

Is that because they just never retract because Fox isn't news? I know they got sued for billions over the last election.

Yes, like the uneducated youth, you think you know better than the party elders. We can only wait and see whether MAGAs have the wisdom to be in charge of anything I guess.

No, because they’re reporting was accurate where they didn’t have to, but would if the reportage was inaccurate.

I know they got sued for billions over the last election.

True, and the main problem was you had management putting their opinionated ideology into the editorial process which should never have happened.

Yes, like the uneducated youth,

A lot, regardless of party affiliation.

you think you know better than the party elders.

Well, liberals think they know better than anyone else

We can only wait and see whether MAGAs have the wisdom to be in charge of anything I guess.

Well, now that we know all the shenanigans and irregularities that transpired from the last election, it’s going to be a lot harder for Dems to undertake the same tactics they did last time. Now many states are playing their exact same game. And it’s paying off, definitely helping the former President, but we shall see, the year is long.

Fox News as an agenda-setter, Don,t you mean pushing their narrative, If you rely on this as a credible news source you are part of what is wrong with the world these days. But the left media is just as worst. It is a. mine field trying find a credible news source. Either they are cancelling or getting canceled

Well, as a conservative I want to hear all sides covered, you will not get that on the liberal news outlet. This is why so many are faltering. CNN is once again, doing a lineup re-shuffle as their ratings remain in the toilet. People are tired of hearing every minute how bad Trump is, there is other news on the wire. Fox gives them that. Do they lean more conservative, absolutely, but at least they show both sides and they have a lot of liberal pundits working for the network.

Media misses Trump, tired of Biden hiding or not taking any questions, interviews etc. MSNBC and CNN undergoing major 're-structuring', code for layoffs, as their ratings have hit rock bottom.

It seems obvious Biden's friendly media support took a turn for the worse when he tried his hasty press conference to respond to the Special Counsel Hur report on his failing mental acuity, etc.

Media has definitely turned the page on Biden, they want a new dynamic candidate for President, someone like Newsome or Michelle Obama!
