    Every week you can see the gradual shift since Roger Ailes went to his reward.

    Juan Williams, Chris Wallace, Jessica Tarlov, Geraldo!, Donna Brazile, even Bret Baier is swaying to port in the breeze.

    Being the only even close to neutral major TV network, this is some bad mojo. There are no other alternatives.

    We have Don Lemon and Anderson Cooper on CNN, Rachel Maddow and Lawrence O'Donnell on MSNBC , Chuck Todd on NBC, Scott Pelly on CBS and George Stephenopolous on ABC.

    All of those swing from the left. Maybe a couple of switch hitters in there! Whatever, it's just more Progressive pablum being spewed everyday

    Thoughts on this for the upcoming 2020 Circus?

    Fox News will turn on Trump as soon as the Dems pick their candidate. They know that, at most, Trump will be gone in 2025 and The Swamp will return to power with a vengeance. They will want to survive the coming purge.

    Fox & Friends (Judge Nap excepted, when he comes on) will stay mostly neutral...or a couple of the regular hosts will be replaced (Pete & Brian) and the show will tip left. The weekend morning crews will go anti-Trump.

    Hannity, Tucker and Laura will still be with us (their ratings are too high for Fox to ditch them) but the rest of the commentary / opinion will go to the left. They might even replace the 7 pm show, what is it, "The Story"? with a new Lefty anti - Trump show in early 2020.

    They'll stick with this lineup if Trump wins...but emphasize the left-wing tilt, with only Tucker Hannity & Laura remaining as voices of reason. These three will be out the day after Trump is out of office, be it Jan. 2021 or 2025.

    LOL, most of those people were already extremely far left. They have been the token liberals on Fox for years.

    Neutral? Come on.

    I saved about $50 a month dropping all but the local TV stations. I added an A La Cart streaming subscription to One America News for $5 a month to get my 24/7 news fix if needed. Win-win.

    Why would I want to add all the left leaning Bull Squeeze and pay more money to do it? :dunno:

    A good analysis, although I believe the Fox Big Three can survive a Trump Catastrophe.

    Sometimes the lack of comprehension drives me bananas. Or is it asparagus?

    Most of the news networks are not focusing on money(ratings) but will do anything to get the party message out there. That's why people have stopped watching.

    Yes, he is a New Jersey "conservative."
    That's kind of like a guy riding a moped claiming to be a Hells Angel.

    I got rid of cable and changed my internet to the $10 Xfinity plan. Much better.

    Didn't Bernie Goldberg prove that 90% plus of all 'journalists' in all forms of media are registered democrats?
    Why think the FOXers were any different?

    Gutfeld - not a lefty
    Watters - not a lefty
    Perino - not a lefty
    Rotating guest in Guilfoyle’s former chair - not a lefty
    Juan Williams is the token lefty.

    They will follow ad revenue. Lefties boycott, conservatives don't.

    I'd prefer a network that smacks all parties upside their political heads for B.S.


    Long stopped watching the Fox talking heads since O'Reilly days. Gave up on the weekday morning idiots long before that.
