He'd better watch it. If Fox News stops white knighting and carrying his water he is done, and done quickly!

Trump made it clear that he feels he's the one responsible for Fox success.

Trump also made it clear that because of this Fox needs to remember they owe him.

Trump is acting-out even more than usual. The Failure on the Fourth, Epstein's arrest, and the triumph or women's soccer (without worshipping him) have gotten to him.

It seems to me that fox news was more powerful before they jumped on the trump crazy train.

Murdock has had some interesting things to say about trump in his other publications as well.

@#4 ... It seems to me that fox news was more powerful before they jumped on the trump crazy train. ...

That's my impression as well.

Like all those Trump admin people who leave the White House tainted and worse off than before they went to the White House, Fox News is finding out what it means to be associated with Pres Trump.

(fwiw, the NYC real estate developers learned that lesson a couple decades ago)

When Fox News isn't idiotically alt right enough for you.

Guess he'll have to go ahead with Trump State-Owned TV.

"One way to deal with that would be for the president to simply ignore the coverage he doesn't like and restrict his media consumption to the warm embrace of The Sean Hannity Show or Fox & Friends, where the hosts' sole mandate is to bark and clap approvingly for anything Trump does. He has indeed done this to some extent, to the point that, as my colleague Gabriel Sherman reported in January, Trump habitually calls hosts to give them feedback on their segments. "What he usually does is he'll call after a show and say, ‘I really enjoyed that,'" a former anchor told him. "The highest compliment is, ‘I really learned something.' Then you know he got a new policy idea.""

His propaganda station isn't propagandizing him enough? Shucks.

Where will the rubes tune in if Orange #45 turns against his State TV outlet? RT?

Hannity is working hard to get the orange lard barge calmed down.

They must have taken their tongue out of his butt to get a breath. They should know better by now.

He's talked this way about many other major media outlets and many of you guys blasted him for it. Now he's doing it to Fox and all of a sudden you don't say the same things or give the same vibe. So the question is, what level hypocrisy does it take for you to actually see your hypocrisy? If someone disparaging Fox News doesn't do it for Liberals, I guess it's pretty much a lost cause to hope for the hypocrisy to lessen or go away.
