Fox on the way out? Down? Sideways?

Fox News has been slipping badly lately under new management, but it still has more balanced coverage than the other cable newsy-notes and opinions.  It’s coverage of Trump is only 52% negative as opposed to 98% like the others. I’ve been using EWTN and YouTube to gather a variety of opinions on politics, entertainment and culture.

“Fox News has undergone significant changes in the past year; founder Roger Ailes resigned under a cloud of sexual harassment allegations and died in May at the age of 77, while co-president and longtime producer Bill Shine left the network shortly after O’Reilly.

The network moved former Crossfire host Tucker Carlson into O’Reilly’s old 8 p.m. time slot, and moved its panel show The Five to 9 p.m. Sean Hannity remained on in the 10 p.m. hour.

Fox News is still the most-watched cable news network, but it has faced stronger competition in recent weeks as MSNBC and its star anchor, Rachel Maddow, have made ratings gains due to their focus on critical coverage of President Donald Trump’s administration.”
