Fox News faces criticism for video supporting Trump`s election rigging claim

Tuesday, 17 Nov, 2020

In the past, President Trump has praised Newsmax TV and the One America News Network. So he said this morning in a tweet in which he referred to the drop in viewership in daytime programs and the "even WORSE" figures for the weekend. "Very sad to watch this happen, but they forgot what made them successful, what got them there", he tweeted on Thursday.

The sign read, "Coming for Blacks & Indians first welcome to the new world order", and was seen being held by a man participating in Saturday's MAGA protests being held across the U.S. following Trump's election upset. Although there's been speculation about Trump joining forces with Newsmax, but Ruddy said "there has never been any discussion" with the president about a future role he might someday play. On 14 November, Pro-Trump and White Nationalist groups plan to converge on DC to protest the election.

The network recently claimed that "Fox News viewers appear to be deserting the network in droves".

The idea would be to charge a monthly fee to MAGA fans - much like Rush Limbaugh's Dittoheads - to peel away the $5.99 monthly fee that subscribers pay to receive Fox News' even more conservative digital service called Fox Nation.

A story on Newsmax.com, said that a day after the Presidential election - November 4- Newsmax TV drew a Nielsen-measured 287,000 average minute viewers from 9 a.m.to 4 p.m, versus CNBC, 285,000 viewers and Fox Business at 281,000.

Its intention was to set up a competitor to Fox News, The Journal reported.

There are ongoing discussions between Newsmax and Hicks Equity Partners, an investment firm connected to the Republican National Committee.

"We are taking every legal avenue that exists in these states to make sure that legal votes are counted and illegal votes are discounted", she said.

Kushner reportedly phoned Fox Corp.

Earlier in the month, Murdoch told analysts, "We have always thrived with competition". "I just think that's wrong", he said. Once election results are certified in coming weeks then Newsmax would declare it at that point, he said.

The Wall Street Journal, which had rejected The Post's attack on Hunter Biden, has dismissed Mr. Trump's fraud claims, and its conservative opinion page is nudging the president toward a gracious concession.
