A news organization is only as good as its leadership and those in the decision making positions with the most clout. Sadly, we are seeing this in the one Cable Network which took on the status quo – the Mainstream media who has always been in the pocket of the progressives.
A little history of Fox News:
On October 7th of 1996, Fox News was introduced to the world as the first cable network to offer a “conservative” alternative to the the mainstream media which has also supported the Dems – forever.
Through the years, with shows such as O’Reilly and Sean Hannity, truth was finally available to the little guy watching the news. Attacks came as they knew they would. Fox News was called “Fox Noise” and the mainstream folks laughed at even the thought of this “experiment” having legs and ultimately being successful.
Well, the laughter ceased – at least behind the scenes – and Fox became an incredibly popular alternative to the leftist networks, who had been merely an arm of the Democratic government. They said what they were told to say.
But as with anything else, it’s all about the bottom line. A Saudi prince bought into Fox News in 2005. He owns 7% of voting rights on the board of directors. He has more pull on Fox than anyone realizes. He is crazy wealthy – like 26 billion dollars wealthy, and as they say “Money talks.”
Fox ranks 13th in the line of donors and supporters of the Hillary campaign, and has for years. You see, with the Saudi coming on board, he is making sure that Fox will not be used by the right in the way they had been in previous years. Their hands are tied. Enter: Corruption.
Fox has also been a major donor to the Clinton Foundation for a very long time.
“The parent company of Fox News has helped to finance the career of Hillary Clinton. In fact, the company has helped a lot.
21st Century Fox/News Corp. ranks ninth on the list of the top “corporate and union donors to the Clintons over two decades,” according to a little-noticed list compiled by The Wall Street Journal in 2014. The list counts donations from “companies, foundations, and employees.”
21st Century Fox also ranks as the 13th biggest contributor to Hillary Clinton during her political career, according to a database maintained by the Center for Responsive Politics. The database credits the Rupert Murdoch-owned company as having pitched in $340,936 to her campaigns. That puts Fox just below Lehman Brothers, but eleven spots below second-place Goldman Sachs, on the pro-Clinton list.
“The organizations themselves did not donate, rather the money came from the organizations’ PACs, their individual members or employees or owners, and those individuals’ immediate families. Organization totals include subsidiaries and affiliates,” the database notes.
Murdoch’s charitable foundation and his son James are also contributors to the Clinton Foundation, which is now reportedly being examined by the FBI, which is investigating Hillary Clinton for possible Espionage Act violations regarding her private email use and also possible instances of public corruption regarding the Foundation.
The News Corporation Foundation is listed on the Clinton Foundation website as a donor to the tune of between $500,001 and $1,000,000, placing it alongside progressive donor heavyweights like Peter Lewis and Paul Newman’s foundation.
James R. Murdoch, meanwhile, is listed as a Clinton Foundation donor to the tune of between $1,000,001 and $5,000,000.

It seems that Fox is now in the business of propping up who they like in the presidential race; and smearing the others. This was always what they accused the lefties of doing. I suppose all is fair in love, war and cable networks.
Fox’s War on Evangelicals
Have you noticed that most times when “religious” topics are to be discussed, Fox brings in a Catholic priest for his “knowledge and enlightenment?” Most everything discussed on the station is from Catholicism. Evangelicals are an after thought – you know – those crazy Jesus freaks…. they must be very careful about speaking the name of Jesus. I have seen Franklin Graham on Fox and he always gets the Gospel out there. I’m very thankful and very proud of the stand he takes for the Gospel of Christ. He is not ashamed.
Alternatives to Fox News
My husand and I have been watching OANN (One America News Network). It doesn’t have all of the bells and whistles of Fox, but it’s Conservative to its core and we love that. We also do not have to suffer through shows on Fox with the gorgeous blondes (not a hair out of place) and the low cut tops and “leg shots” of the very beautiful commentators with very short skirts on “One Lucky Guy” and “The Five.” ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!
Well, I’m done with my rant. I’m not sure how many out there agree with me, but it’s my WordPress so I can get away with my rants!
