FOX and TRUMP

media

I keep hearing how FOX IS FAVORING TRUMP and I watch FOX.

I know I’m taking a chance in having written this but this is absolutely how I see it!

I’d love examples of FOX FAVORING TRUMP if you’d be willing to comment on it…..they seem to me to be so dispirited by Trump.   O’Reilly is a personal friend so he knows Trump better than we do and he’s clearly realistic enough to know Trump will probably be the pick.   Anybody here seen Megyn Kelly show favoritism toward Trump?  🙂  If anything, considering the misery between them, she’s been amazingly even handed.  I wouldn’t have been.  The show OUTNUMBERED is said to favor Trump;   Mark Levin showed a little stupidity Monday on the radio because I’d actually seen the bit he profiled and he was wrong…because he cut off the part slamming Trump right after one of the women sounded pro-Trump, she finished with a big insult but he didn’t play it, only said that ‘FOX IS IN THE TANK FOR TRUMP’

If anybody thinks Brett Baier or George Will or any of the news readers, etc etc. are, let me know.  Karl Rove for TRUMP?  NO!  He’s on constantly.  Giuliani is on fairly often and seems to be pro Trump, but don’t all stations include people who like or dislike all candidates?  That’s my experience.

Is FOX supposed to be OVERTLY ANTI TRUMP to show Conservatives they really are as Conservative as they were?  Ridiculous concept to think that.  They are there to give us information.  Ted Cruz, now an ex-candidate, called FOX the TRUMP NETWORK. REALLY?  BAIER?  WALLACE?  JUAN WILLIAMS?  GRETCHEN CARLSON?  etc etc etc…….. Hannity? Yes.  I think he’s every bit as polite and welcoming to the other candidates and that same civility toward Trump shouldn’t necessary mean he’s Pro Trump, but Hannity’s fans are kind of like Trump fans, and if Hannity’s about anything it’s about protecting Hannity.

IF you’re still reading, please let me know what YOU think of this FOX IS FOR TRUMP stuff….I watch it quite a bit and have almost NEVER seen that.   BELIEVE me, as much as I can’t STAND Trump, I’d be ultra sensitive to any station favoring him…

  1. Where is Andrea Tantaros?
    She’s a Trump supporter.
    Hannity is a pilot fish to Trump, along for the ride.
    Since I loathe Trump, anyone that features him seems an enabler, thus a supporter, but objectively, that’s not true.
    I’m not sure there was a network policy.

    I hope you won’t disparage me from commenting since I don’t watch Fox anymore, and haven’t for several months now because of their hard left turn. As for favoring Trump… errr, SORRY! I meant to call him “MISTER Trump” I won’t let that slip happen again *lip quiver* Mister, mIster, Mister…

    Z, I love ya, but clearly Fox News is in the tank for Trump. Last time I watched, he was getting about a $Billion in free airtime kid-glove interviews on their morning, noon and night shows. UGH! Can you name two Fox personality who outwardly supported Cruz? Can you name one? It’s not so much them being FOR Trum (mister mister mister) but that they are an establishment Republican Party channel, and the establishment no longer represents my values.

    But don’t take my word for it. I now read where CNN annihilated Faux in April, and has now beaten Fox in prime time ratings for five out of the last 8 months.

  3. ‘FOX IS IN THE TANK FOR TRUMP’

    Huh?

    My observations (a bit organized because I’m in a hurry)…

    Judge Jeanine is clearly pro-Trump.

    Sean Hannity, maybe.

    And as mentioned, O’Reilly is a personal friend of Trump’s. O’Reilly leans Trump.

    A few of the women are pro-Trump or lean Trump, but I don’t know their names. Andrea Tantaros (pro-Trump) is one whose name I know, but she’s been suspended from the network; rumor has it that she lost her job because she’s anti-globalism.

    Megyn Kelly has been more anti-Trump than pro-Trump, IMO. But I must confess that I don’t watch her show very much. I’m usually asleep by 8:30, and her show begins at 9:00.

    George Will is clearly anti-Trump. Krauthammer leans that way, but isn’t as hard core as George Will.

  4. Jerry,
    …they are an establishment Republican Party channel, and the establishment no longer represents my values

    Same here.

  5. FB says:

    I think NY media like Trump. I watch Morning Joe sometimes and they seem to like him personally as well. Even the liberal people. They’re part of the same network the same way DC journalists are part of the beltway elite.

  6. I think Fox News exhausted all of its power trying to defeat Donald Trump. They wanted a GOP establishment candidate to continue the globalist agenda. Thank God they lost that battle & Trump has prevailed. I expect him to win in a landslide & be a great President.

  7. bocopro says:

    Well, the guy IS flamboyant and controversial, hence a source of news. Yes, he’s had tons of free coverage on Fox, but the same is true on CNN and HLN . . . ’cause he’s noisy and newsworthy.

    Bush was boring, Paul was mildly psychotic, Cruz is sleazy, and Kasich is just plain soporific. Of COURSE Fox is gonna go with the one-man-band rather than the tuba player or the oboe or the glockenspieler.

    Baier is about as even-handed a moderator as you’ll find anywhere, and Krauthammer considers the Trumpomenon more of an aberration than a bona fide candidacy, a gastric sore spot which might develop into a bleeding ulcer.

    FoxandFriends is not a news show, BTW; it’s not even good infotainment most of the time. Haven’t watched it except by accident for close to a year, but apparently Trump shows up there on the fone a couple times a week to pontificate and blather.

    Don’t watch Shep Smith or Judge Whateverhernameis, so can’t comment on that. Don’t watch Kelly, either. And I just read O’Reilly rather than catching his show live. And who is Tantaros? Is she that little Greek spitfire who came out in favor of waterboarding and said we should get rid of several federal departments, beginning with Dept of Ed.? If so, she’s my kinda gal. Didn’t know she was actively pro-Trump.

  8. Kid says:

    I read the whole post Z but don’t watch the click bait. I don’t see where any of them are delivering “news”. My impression of FOX though is that they are totally dysfunctional and possibly even subversive.

  9. Geezer840 says:

    I used to watch Fox News nightly but my perception was that O’Reilly and Hannity were acting as campaign volunteers for Trump. Reviera was contempful of Cruz. Rove was always pro Rove and used Fox to demonstrate his loyalty to the Party. Williams disliked Trump but was terrified at the thought of Cruz as the nominee. It seemed to me that there was at least 33% of program time devoted to Trump advocacy so I started watching Fox Business where I then found Lou Dobbs trying to outdo O’Reilly in campaign support for Trump.
    I no longer watch Fox and think they were successful in a deliberate effort in support of Trump. They are good at their job.
    I miss Aljezera so I watch CNN.

  10. CNN and MSNBC are the new “Trump” netwroks. They’d have no ratings w/o him.

  11. geeez2014 says:

    Ed..I forgot Andrea! OOPS…one IS for Trump…

    Jerry, I coudln’t disagree more….as a matter of fact, CNN carries Trump constantly…
    maybe I’m in that demographic because I watch CNN half the time now…and I NEVER DID THAT BEFORE. EVER.
    Heck, I’m starting to like Van Jones! Always found him handsome, and have always teased about that here, and I almost NEVER EVER agree with him, but he’s smart and gives me insight into the rightwing mind.
    Anderson Cooper has been SO respectful to the Rep candidates it stuns me, by the way.
    CNN has done a lot in showing more Cons. contributors; sadly, theirs are usually not that bright as the FOX women, for example (by a LONG SHOT) but they’re there, at least.

    Fairest Witness…I am not a Trump fan, but I absolutely agree with you on your take of FOX and their coverage. They absolutely did try to defeat him….NONE of their people talk like big Trump fans….except SOMETIMES Tantaros does. She just likes a tough guy….even Kimberly G sometimes sounds like she’s a fan because she hates wimps.

    Bocopro…ya, that’s Tantaros..the “Greek spitfire!” And yes, she’s more in Trump’s tank than any of them. And yes, CNN and other stations have covered Trump at least as much as FOX has…
    And yes, that morning show doesn’t bill itself as news….I personally don’t know why they even have that show on…I guess it’s to counteract the network morning shows…but yuck.

    Kid…ya, they do carry news. All day.

    Geezer; Nope….CNN talks Trump at least as much as FOX does but I think people are angry now at FOX’s supposed betrayal of true Conservatives so they’re finding what they can against it.

    Vrag; EXACTLY

  12. geeez2014 says:

    Great comments, everybody…..thanks!! I love your input and must admit that I’m a little worried about FOX.
    I thought other channels would ‘out fox them’ and get better than they are but I never thought Fox itself would/could torpedo ITSELF …

    I really think it’s not so much the choices FOX makes, because most of their panels are EXCELLENT (led by Baier and others) BUT it’s more angry Conservatives who don’t feel they’re echoing their exact feelings…

    ALSO….I stopped watching as much FOX because I can’t take Shep Smith, Hannity or Judge Jeanine….(God, that VOICE!)….and one thing CNN does NOT do is the “cat in the tree” stories…who CARES if there’s a high speed car chase in L.A.? I’ve blogged this point before;

    WHY DOES FOX SHOW EVERY COED’S DISAPPEARANCE AND EVERY CHILD KIDNAPPING AND EVERY MISTREATMENT OF A CAT AND EVERY HOUSE FULL OF SNAKES …etc etc.
    It’s STUPID UNINTERESTING information..

    CNN does NOT show that stuff, MSNBC does NOT SHOW THAT STUFF.

    Plus, they don’t have Geraldo; also a HUGE plus, not having that jerk 🙂

  13. Imp says:

    “the establishment no longer represents my values…”

    Well…there’s always Hillary guys.

  14. Imp says:

    “Kimberly G sometimes sounds like she’s a fan because she hates wimps..”

    She must have first hand knowledge then…she was married to Gavin Newsom.

  15. geeez2014 says:

    Imp; we have to keep reminding….
    And picture this: ERIC HOLDER AS SUPREME COURT JUSTICE…THAT’ll get us all voting Trump (who I can’t STAND but I keep praying…)!!!

  16. Imp says:

    Eric the Red…..would have me moving to Canada… 😦

  17. geeez2014 says:

    KASICH IS OUT….just now.

  18. Imp says:

    Kas-ITCH??? How will he feed himself now that he’s out?

  19. bocopro says:

    Oh, I truly enjoy watching Geraldo being spectacularly wrong and then trying to dig his way out of it.

    Just LOVE the cosmic intervention by Curly’s eternal spirit (Jerome Lester Horwitz)

    with the meringue pie on bloviators such as Gerald Michael Riviera (his birth name, BTW).

  20. Kid says:

    That’s hilarious. I know that woman and I’m not talking about Z.

  21. Mal says:

    I believe Fox has tried to be fairly balanced, at least for a media associated with the Right. We watch it almost continually and have, however, noticed a lot of cutting off of guests from the Left, esp. by Bill “O”. This a.m. my wife and I tried to figure out exactly what it was about Cruz’s demeanor that turned everyone off and decided it was his holier than thou persona. He came off extremely aloof. Capable, but unlikable. That also is a big reason he isn’t liked in Congress’
    NOW…………I’m going to make a statement that’s sure to trigger response. Trump has the ability to become one of our greatest Presidents, right up there with Reagan. If my thinking is on target, its all been an act to garner the attention and free coverage from the media and will explain the statements by those close to him saying there are two Donald Trumps. Only time will tell.

  22. geeez2014 says:

    Mal, I hope you’re right…but it is QUITE an act and all that ‘act’ is on video to be played back over and over and over again by the Left this year before the election.
    Let’s face it, Trump didn’t need to go that far to get all the media he was getting….WE KNOW WHO HE IS NOW.
    STOP, Donald…be a grown up…Grown ups don’t talk like you do.

    Only time will tell…yes… I hope you’re right, Mal. I shudder to think of his ego in the WH

  23. Imp says:

    @Mal..”He came off extremely aloof..” His cadence and timing are straight out of his old debating team manual….And like I said before…he could be reading Dr. Seus and it all sounds like he’s reading the Gettysburg address.

    And all of those who can’t / won’t vote Trump…how does 8 years of Hillary sound to you then? How does the evisceration of the constitution strike you then? Do you really think that the dem-lite”republicans in Congress will be able to stop her? When Boehner, Ryan have given this current twerp everything he’s demanded?

  24. geeez2014 says:

    Imp, did you hear Trump saying he’d punish companies we went overseas? That’s not too constitutional, either….Or how he’d sue media that said “mean” things about him? Or suggest he’s wrong about something?

    Ryan didn’t give the twerp everything he demanded because he wanted to….
    I’d vote for Ryan yesterday over Trump if I could.

    Having said that, I am REALLY saddened at all the Reps threatening not to vote…I TOTALLY understand it, my own ethics prevent me from liking someone as crass as Trump (and in public, I didn’t know that existed), but for my country I’ll vote for ANYBODY BUT HILLARY. Or JOE, for that matter. Even O’Reilly said this morning that Trump doesn’t listen to people’s advice…that really worries me.

  25. geeez2014 says:

    I have noticed that I’ve lost regular commenters due to my not being madly in love with Trump, even when I have said I’d vote for him anyway, over and over again.
    Interesting….I don’t care, but it is a sign in some that I don’t like to see.
    I still believe in free speech and good discussion..
    And I appreciate all of you who are here!

  26. Kid says:

    Lost commenters over Trump? That’s interesting.

    I find it pretty disappointing that yes, a lot of non-democrat voters will stay home because they don’t get the perfect candidate. This is a problem the democrats never have as proven by 8 years of obama and now their #1 pick is an unconvicted mobster with a life of crime and enough pathological lying and incompetence to fuel a rocket to Mars.

    If these people won’t go vote against the beast, this is the last piece of evidence to see that this country is dead. We will never get the perfect candidate.

  27. Kid says:

    PS, I don’t have that problem btw, I have yet to vote For someone. I’ve only voted against democrats and taxes.

  28. Bob says:

    I agree with lots of the comment above.

    bocopro: “Trumpomenon” . That’s so good I can hardly pronounce it!

    Tantaros: She’s was one of my favorite because 1) She is georgeous, and 2) She is smart. I don’t know why she got disappeared, but it probably had something to do with her outspoken nature.

    Fox News has been supportive of Trump for years. Gretta seemed to have him on at least once a month for a long time. In a conversation with the Fox News panel last night, it was mentioned that Trump NEVER turned down an interview. He was on Fox all the time, as well as CNN and other news outlets.

    At this point, I think Trump has to re-visit his promise of self-funding his campaign. As long as the cost of a Presidential campaign was only $1 Billion, he could handle that. Now, there are projections that it will cost several $Billion. Being a billionaire just ain’t what it used to be.

    Great discussion, Z.

  29. Mal says:

    Just a reminder……….I said Trump has the ABILITY to become one of our greatest Presidents, not that he would for sure. Maybe being a bit optimistic, but it does help me sleep better at night!

  30. Imp says:

    “I still believe in free speech and good discussion..”….

    I know…even though I know you’re grinding your teeth at me… 🙂

  31. Imp says:

    Excellent read and assessment of the huge political change we’re seeing today by Pat Caddell:

    Caddell said the Ruling Class has become so arrogant and corrupt that it doesn’t see the anger it has created among voters.

    “I’ve watched these people in the Establishment who don’t even care, as long as they can preserve their position and power, the 89 percent of the American people who believe that these people are only interested in preserving their position and power, at the expense of the United States and every American in it — and these people cannot understand the revolution going on,” he marveled.

  32. FB says:

    I love Caddell. A good and intellectually honest man.

    I’m in Dallas and it’s a great city. Loving it.

  33. Imp says:

    @FB…and a Dem of the Old Breed too.

  34. geeez2014 says:

    Kid, I told Beamish at AOW’s site today, when he said HE WAS VOTING ON PRINCIPLE AND WRITING IN GARY JOHNSON, that I have to put my principles aside to vote for what’s best for America and Hillary isn’t it. I think that’s important.

    Bob, thanks…and I SO agree with you. Andrea wasn’t on OUTNUMBERED but she’s been on O’Reilly and some other shows and I’m hoping they have bigger plans for her.
    And YES YES YES!…FOX loves Trump because HE”LL GO ON ANY TIME….On CNN, too.
    They are NOT in the tank for Trump and never have been.NO WAY…not 90% of them.

    FB, Caddell is a Democrat and worked for all leftwingers…and I LOVE the guy. I met him once when I was talking with Breitbart who said he had a meeting soon ‘with someone’ and finally I was stunned to see it was Pat Caddell in the flesh!! They talked about 2 hours in a cocktail booth while all sorts of other things were going on. I kept looking and they were still talking.
    What people don’t realize is that while Breitbart BECAME more conservative, he’d been less cons. and it took the leftwing dishonest media to make him grow up and realize what was going on on the left…he was one of THE most spectacular people I EVER met…and his in-laws thought the same of him. I bring this up because you are right about Caddell; honest, fair, a thinker; not a Leftwing HACK. He’s actually been quite anti-Obama, too, hasn’t he.

    Imp, yes, a Dem of the old good breed of Moynihan, O’Neal…etc…
    they don’t make ’em like that anymore.

    What Republicans MUST DO NOW is BAND TOGETHER…the Left NEVER EVER eats their young like we do…we think things through too much and discuss and change minds and argue…Integrity and evaluation to find the best solution doesn’t help months before an election.

  35. Kid says:

    Z, People that throw their votes away are idiots.

  36. geeez2014 says:

    http://patriotpost.us/alexander/42360

    BIDEN/WARREN? It’s being talked about….
    God help us all.

  37. Kid says:

    Well, they’re srtupid, ugly and evil enough to win…

  38. bunkerville says:

    CNN beat Fox in the ratings for the first time. Bye Fox. I’m done.

  39. geeez2014 says:

    I don’t know what to say to those of you deciding not to watch FOX anymore…..
    It’s like not voting for Trump (who I CAN’T STAND) because he isn’t conservative enough.

    I think we’re killing ourselves from within…..Does anybody here think our country will suddenly get more conservative because we dumped on anybody who isn’t a leftwinger?

  40. I said it yesterday. Nice to see the Patriotpost was listening.

    Obama gives go ahead to DOJ.
    Hillary goes to jail.
    Joe Biden runs.
    And wins.

  41. Kid says:

    I’m not sure I understand the question Z, but for my part, (and realize I’ve always been a contrarian, meaning I hate to go with the crowd on anything) – I just don’t accept the media as something that would benefit me by my watching it. I see it all as purely an entity that exists and is programmed to bring in ad revenue. Period. There are Big events happening around the world and no one talks about them. I want to see on ‘the news’ things like that teenage girl in Germany who put out the youtube video detailing in excrutiating detail what it is like to try to live in Germany with hordes of moslem invaders that are literally taking over the country and culture and merkel is helping them do it to the utmost that she can. She (and many other EU countries leaders) have turned their countries into shit holes and are in a manner of thinking committing genocide by moslem on their own people/citizens/taxpayers/contributors. It’s unreal isn’t it?

    When they start talking about That kind of stuff, then I’ll entertain the idea that they are delivering “News”.

  42. Imp says:

    “WRITING IN GARY JOHNSON”…OK…let them vote according to their errrr “Principles”…idiots all. And I mean that. Nothing…no one in this life is perfect except for Jesus Christ…and they can write HIM in too…but he’s not running in the R party for POTUS. And they can bitch, piss and moan for the next 4 / 8 years and I will tell them all to go straight to hell if she should win and escape the prosecution she so well deserves. The very future of this Republic is at stake…as much as it was in 1789 or 1861 or 1941 to 1945. The second amendment will disappear…jobs will bleed to China and Mexico….the Middle East will continue to burn…we will still be attacked by mooselem vermin…race relations will be more exacerbated …and worse…more puke and scandals from this evil hooved witch. So..go ahead…..write in Gary Johnson. Jesus…I’d vote for Bernie before this maggot…at least he’ll not get anything done.

  43. Kid says:

    ED, I hop you’reright on go ahead for DOJ. Heh, call me crazy, but I think this coutnry is angry enough to put a non-politician into the white house.

  44. geeez2014 says:

    Right, Ed…they got it from YOU 🙂 Glad they were listening…!
    Except I believe the Clintons have things on Obama that might keep him from blowing the whistle on her….we’ll see!

    Kid, I totally get what you mean….but I’ll submit again that all we need in this country is a return to NO CONSERVATIVE TELEVISION.. Most people are NOT informed at all except by TV and I don’t understand anybody who thinks FOX doesn’t give news…it might not be complete, it might be biased, but they do have stories we need to know. At least those who aren’t reading as much as we do need to know….SOMETHING.
    We can’t say “I want THIS news on or else..”
    I agree that no stations are telling the truth about how really bad it is in Europe….I’d like to see those stories, too.

  45. geeez2014 says:

    Imp; great rant…I agree

    Kid, I think this country is also angry enough to put a politician in PRISON!!

  46. Kid says:

    IMP, I’ll 2nd that emotion and add that should that occur, those Bastids will import a sufficient number of moslem vermin, that like in Germany, they will be marching down the street with their bullhorns yapping about allah in everytown USA.
    Gee, I wonder what the ‘separation of church and state %^&^%^^#Es will do about that. personally I think they won’t do anything about it ecuase they are all cowards in the first place.

  47. Kid says:

    Z, Heh, Let’s hop it is the right politician they send to prison.

  48. Imp says:

    Kid…do you think these asshat snowflakes would get the picture if they were being tossed off of rooftops? Sometimes…I swear and I hate to say this…..sometimes I think we need a bit of Sharia reality for these kumquats to get the real picture. And tragically I’m convinced that we’re going to get a dirty bomb or another huge catastrophe to make these cupcakes up. Meanwhile…in Germany it’s 1923 again. And the AfD is going to rescue Germany…and Austria ( the birthplace of someone we all know well ) is already reacting to mooslem invaders and filth.

  49. Imp says:

    @Wake…sorry/

  50. Kid says:

    IMP, Honestly, I question whether ANYTHING would wake the snowflakes up outside of They being tossed off a roof. Dangerous times becuase few have their eye on the ball.

  51. Kid says:

    IMP, I cannot imagine ANY scenario where American majority will understand what is going on until it is too late.

  52. jerrydablade says:

    Kid: “People that throw their votes away are idiots.”
    Nice to see you channeling your inner trump for such a thoughtful and intellectual comment. Sorry, bullying doesn’t work with some of us. We need a reason to vote for a candidate besides “anything is better than hilllary” because frankly I haven’t seen any evidence of that, this I will tell you. While I will not support Trump under any circumstances, I HAVE punched people in the face for calling me names. Apology accepted 🙂

  53. Kid says:

    Jerry, I wasn’t talking about you, I was talking about Beamish

    “Kid, I told Beamish at AOW’s site today, when he said HE WAS VOTING ON PRINCIPLE AND WRITING IN GARY JOHNSON,”

    I’m the last person to tell people what to do, but it’s not about hilrod. It’s about the supreme court, a dem gets in and you’ll end up with a 6-3 libtard court who will shred the constitution starting with the 2nd A.. There is no recovery from that. It’s not like trying to get obamacare cancelled.

    Now if you vote for anyone beside democrat opposition how will you feel when the above comes to pass.

    Punch me if you want to though.

  54. Kid says:

    DaBlade, I wish I’d have had this video to post in response to your smash my face comment.

    http://rightwingcat.blogspot.com/2016/05/thank-you-pat.html#comment-form

    To bad I’m not as good as Pat Condell.

    Best to ya though. Best to US as well.

  55. Kid says:

    PPS, DaBlade, first 46 seconds of the vid. Yea, not much of the rest would apply,
