    Ailes worked for FOX, Murdoch owns the company that owns FOX. Murdoch has two sons.

    Oops, you're right. Maybe I read that Murdoch's son (James, and his environment zealot wife) were having more influence. My bad.

    I have no doubts about Brett. He’s turned into a democrat window licker about two years ago. Pres Trump doesn’t think to much about him either.

    Ailes kids didn’t take over. It’s the Murdoch boys who run the company now.

    Too bad Trump hasn't been giving many briefings these last few months.

    Several of is opined months ago that Fox News would turn on Trump dramatically.

    Fox & Friends, Tucker, Hannity & Ingrahm are the ones to watch. I expect the curvy couch to start tilting left now that Kamala is on the ticket. Even look for Steve or Brian to say nice things about her, how she was tough on crime as a prosecutor. Then look to the whole cast to start criticizing Trump's COVID response, following Kamala's lead from today.

    The question is, what do they do about Tucker & Hannity & Ingrahm? They have a huge viewership. If they axe one or more of them, you know they have gone over to the Dark Side and are trying to insulate themselves from the conservative media purge that will surely be quickly undertaken under a Biden administration.

    We should know by the end of August. I think we thought it would be sooner. But with Biden just announcing the DNC's pick yesterday, they have had to wait.

    With the ratings they are pulling I doubt Tucker, Hannity or Ingraham are going anywhere, at least not this year. I read that even though Tucker lost all his major sponsors he is still pulling in a bunch of money for Fox News because of the high ratings and the fees Fox gets from cable carriers based on ratings. I don’t think Fox News is generating the kind of cash as when Ailes was at his best, but still a lot.

    Don’t count on it.

    Half of A&E’s audience was for Live PD related shows. They canceled them anyway. Now they’ve realized how big a screw up that was.

    Media companies have to go broke after they get woke before they realize they ****ed up. They seem incapable of learning from the experience of others. We see it over and over again.

    Fox News will be no different. That’s why I’ve pretty much stopped watching them.

    Before the Fox News prime time line-up, I'm FAR more likely to have the TV tuned to either OAN or Newsmax... :)

    Tucker's is the only show worth watching most days. Every other show is either establishment Bush/Clinton leaning, sponsored content, or shiny object that's not news.

    No one can predict the future as far as TV talking heads are concerned. I gave my guess. But I don’t understand your logic, assuming you are a Trump supporter. The four most staunch Trump supporters on the evening talk shows are Tucker (although he does occasionally disagree with Trump), Hannity, Ingraham and Levin Life, Liberty and Levin). But you stopped watching them because you think maybe they might be replaced sometime in the future?

    Laura Ingraham is very solid as well. Worth watching.

    Looks like some lefty I could run in to literally in the Whole Foods parking lot cause she can’t look up from her phone to see where she is going.

    I don’t watch much of the programs she is on. But seriously, she looks fine after she gets out of the make-up chair. A bubble headed left wing idiot, yes, but not bad looking.
