President Trump Attacks FOX News

President Trump took to Twitter to criticize the network where he discussed their low ratings, although last month, Fox News saw record ratings and added that “they forgot the Golden Goose.”

During Donald Trump’s four-year run as President of the United States, one of his preferred communication methods to the American people was the frequent appearances on Fox News.

However, four years later, the network in which the former president would often call into is now one of the several news media outlets that he’s criticizing via Twitter.

President Trump took to Twitter to criticize the network where he discussed their low ratings, although last month, Fox News saw record ratings and added that “they forgot the Golden Goose.”

“@FoxNews daytime ratings have completely collapsed. Weekend daytime, even WORSE. Very sad to watch this happen, but they forgot what made them successful, what got them there. They forgot the Golden Goose. The biggest difference between the 2016 Election, and 2020, was @FoxNews,” Trump tweeted.

Trump then went on to retweet several different accounts promoting other conservative networks as alternatives to Fox News.

A few weeks ago, Deadline reported that the president could be looking to start a conservative news outlet, so he could be on the road to doing that once he exits The White House next year.

Rupert Murdoch: Donald Trump Keeps the U.S. Focused “On the Past”

Trump and Fox News have been at odds ever since the network decided to call Arizona for President Joe Biden in the last election.

Former President Donald Trump has discussed possibly running again for office in 2024. 

However, News Corp Executive Chairman Rupert Murdoch stated during the annual meeting of News Corp stockholders that Trump prevents conservatives from moving the nation’s political discussion forward. 

Murdoch adds the former president keeps the country focusing “on the past.” “The current American political debate is profound, whether about education or welfare or economic opportunity,” Murdoch said. 

“It is crucial that conservatives play an active, forceful role in that debate, but that will not happen if President Trump stays focused on the past. The past is the past, and the country is now in a contest to define the future.”

Trump and Fox News have been at odds ever since the network decided to call Arizona for President Joe Biden in the last election. Murdoch’s comments will likely reach the former president, and it wouldn’t surprise anyone if he decided to respond. 

Murdoch wasn’t only calling out Trump; the Fox News CEO accused Facebook and Google of trying to “silence conservative voices.”

“Both of these issues highlight the fundamental need for algorithmic transparency,” Murdoch said. “The idea falsely promoted by the platforms that algorithms are somehow objective and solely scientific is complete nonsense.”

“Algorithms are subjective, and they can be manipulated by people to kill competition and damage other people, publishers, and businesses. What we have seen in the past few weeks about the practices at Facebook and Google surely reinforces the need for significant reform.”

The Judge in Kyle Rittenhouse Trial Says Live Coverage Is “Frightening”

Judge Bruce Schroeder delivered a scathing rebuke of the media’s coverage

The judge in the Kyle Rittenhouse case scolded the media for its coverage of the trial and questioned whether he would allow cameras in the courtroom for future cases. 

Kenosha County Judge Bruce Schroeder delivered a scathing rebuke of the media’s coverage Wednesday as jurors continue to deliberate the fate of Rittenhouse. 

“I will tell you this, I will think long and hard about live television in a trial again next time, I don’t know,” Schroeder. “I’ve always been a firm believer in it, but when I see what has been done, it is really quite frightening. Frightening is the right word for it.”

He singled out the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, which published the views of legal experts who said it was odd that he had not ruled on the defense’s motion to dismiss the charges.

“When I talked about problems with the media when this trial started, that’s — we’re there, in part, because of grossly irresponsible handling of what comes out of this trial,” Schroeder said.
