Good luck with that.  Fox is now known as extremely biased in their politically reporting, and their continued support of Right-Wing anchors ain't gonna change that, unless they get new anchors.

They are trying to convince people that Fox isn't just for conservatives, which I think is fantastic. Acknowledging that it's also for anarchist militias, mentally ill people, empty waiting rooms, and gas stations has been a long time coming.

Is this censorship? It's censorship, isn't it? I just know it's censorship because all my Trumpler friends tell me when sponsors leave over racist, sexist content, then it's censorship.

Why do sponsors hate white supremacists?

You wanna come back in and try that again, but in english this time?

If I'm to understand your point, being the most watched network does not, in of itself, guarantee quality advertising. And if all you can get is Billy Bob's smoke n' tackle shop and a shiat ton of catheter commercials, you're not exactly going to be taking in those sweet advertising dollars are you?

If the people watching Fox are poor, ignorant rubes many advertisers make the calculus that they lose more than they gain when educated people with high disposable incomes refuse to purchase products advertised by white supremacists.  If the millions of people watching it are too poor to buy your stuff you aren;t going to be interested in advertising to them, no matter how many of them there are.

And reverse mortgages.

Pro tip: you can tell what audience a channel/show has by the spots it runs. If it's a bunch of old people shiat, it's mostly (or entirely) old people watching it.

If it's for shiat like reverse mortgages and gold investments and other hucksters, it's because the channel/show can't get anything better.

Ad buyers go where the audience is, they don't purchase time on Fox "News" unless they want to sell shiat to old racist assholes.

Ever think that perhaps it's the most watched because only old people and idgits actually watch the tee vee for their news in 2019? Fox isn't so much as a place for them to get new and updated information (i.e. news) as it is for them to get their daily dose of derp and confirmation bias.

As for CNN and MSNBC, there's no doubt they have a slant, but at least they fill the time with factual based information. On CNN you'll have a debate going about why D2S said something on video, into a hot microphone, that was actually recorded. Meanwhile, over on Fox, the debate is about why blah people smell funny or how AOC is going to force people to have their dogs put down, typically led by some AM radio host from Shiatkicker, USA, a self-proclaimed "influence" like "Dr." Gorka, or a has-been from the Reagan or Bush 1 administrations.

When employing euphemisms, always highlight it with double quotations to mark that it is not the actual name in common use. When the euphemism is used inside a quote, use single quotations.

This is awfully important to you, posting twice and everything. Usually the conservative troll tries to push their failings on others.

You're accusing others of racism and anti-Semitism.

I was watching a nascar race this year and there was a ad for foxnews.  So I would guess that both nascar and foxnews are hurting for advertisers.  Daytona was crash-em-up derby, and Vegas and Phoenix were snooze fests.
 
2019-03-12 03:46:57 PM  
Fox News is more like the Enquirer than an actual news agency. They even do catch and kill services for the GOP.  Then threaten their journalists with the NDA they have to sign to keep quiet about the stories they kill. 
They had the Stormy Daniels story before the election and killed it.

what did she say that was anti-Semitic?  Is it not possible to criticize the Israeli govt and their policies anymore?   She merely pointed out that Netenyahu is a racist and so is his party and they make racist policies. That's not anti-Semitic. Matter of fact the Arabs are Semites too. So when Bibi said that Israel is only for the Jews and not for the Arab citizens he was actually being anti-Semitic.

The broadcast was on Fox, so them running ads for themselves is just non-revenue time filling. All the networks do this.
That's not to say that they aren't hurting for advertisers, they are. Fox, fox fox news, and especially NASCAR.

I don't have cable, but when I have access to it, I will surf through the news channels. It's unwatchable for me for more than an hour. Repetitive, sensationalist and the ads are insulting. I am so glad I don't try to get infromed from television.

Today was fun.  I will listen to them on SXM when I'm in the car sometimes.  My favorite moment of the day was when a commentator claimed that some kids cheating their way into college was going to crash the economy because employers wouldn't trust college degrees anymore.

I have toggled between Fox News and NBC news on Friday mornings, especially if NBC has some Pop star performing live in their plaza space. NBC crowds for the music are shoulder to shoulder. Fox news? I think once they were trying out hula hoops in front of their building, to about 16 elderly, confused looking people. The contrast between the two events going on at the same time of day in NYC was hilarious. As is Fox's claim to being the most watched cable news-yeah.....those Fascist Oligarch Xenophobic Nazis aren't exactly about news-so their claim is moot.
 
2019-03-12 04:53:01 PM  
Any company that advertises on Fox News, fox broadcasting or any other subsidiary needs to be boycotted. We can stop fox if we commit to it...though it'll still take a decade for the shiat to clear out of our parents and grandparents brains.
