Ousted Fox News election forecaster blasts Trump voters in LA Times op-ed

Ousted former Fox News editor Chris Stirewalt went public with claims that the public reaction to Donald Trump’s election loss was due to “informational malnourishment” in a veiled shot at his former employer.

Stirewalt — one of the main proponents of Fox’s disastrous premature call of Arizona for Joe Biden on election night — was fired from Fox News earlier this month due to a post-election “restructuring” at the network.

The former Fox News analyst wrote an op-ed published on Thursday by the Los Angeles Times attacking Americans that don’t buy the news narratives pushed by the mainstream media.

“Americans gorge themselves daily on empty informational calories, indulging their sugar fixes of self-affirming half-truths and even outright lies,” Stirewalt sniped. “Can anyone really be surprised that the problem has gotten worse in the last few years?”

Despite the fact that Stirewalt was behind the call that led to a disastrous cascade that has resulted in Fox News taking enormous ratings losses and likely promoting his firing, he declared that he was “proud of our being first to project” Biden’s ultimate win in Arizona, and slammed disgruntled voters that called out his bias.

Stirewalt sneered:

The rebellion on the populist right against the results of the 2020 election was partly a cynical, knowing effort by political operators and their hype men in the media to steal an election or at least get rich trying. But it was also the tragic consequence of the informational malnourishment so badly afflicting the nation.

When I defended the call for Biden in the Arizona election, I became a target of murderous rage from consumers who were furious at not having their views confirmed.

Having been cosseted by self-validating coverage for so long, many Americans now consider any news that might suggest that they are in error or that their side has been defeated as an attack on them personally. The lie that Trump won the 2020 election wasn’t nearly as much aimed at the opposing party as it was at the news outlets that stated the obvious, incontrovertible fact.

Stirewalt’s open disdain — now that he’s already been fired — for Trump voters concerned about media bias and misrepresentation of the election provides further proof of what many longtime Fox News fans have suspected for months — the once-stalwart network is rife with operatives that are no friend to their conservative viewers.

  1. WE THE PEOPLE (aka SILENT MAJORITY) are 100% responsible and complicit in the voter fraud!

    WE THE PEOPLE failed to call our Rep and Senators to DEMAND a complete audit nationwide and a FULL investigation in VOTER FRAUD.

    I challenge everyone who reads this to pick up the phone NOW and call your Rep and Senators and DEMAND a full audit and investigation into VOTER FRAUD.

    If you still can find more excuses and reasons not to push this issue hard, then YOU are complicit and if you want to blame anyone, just look in the Mirror!

    People should write these numbers down and use them frequently even if you don’t think your elected officials listen, they are require to note your comments for the permanent record in their caller database for anyone to see.

      1. IMPEACH BIDEN NOW !!!!!!!!

        BIDEN IS AN IDIOT – HE WAS ONLY ELECTED BY VOTERS WHO WANTED TO REPLACE PRESIDENT TRUMP.

        BIDEN DOESN’T HAVE THE SENSE TO COME IN OUT OF THE RAIN. HE HAS NO BUSINESS IN THE WHITE HOUSE !!!!!!!!!

        1. Biden was not elected by the people, he was elected by a crooked machine in the middle of the night. That was preprogramed by some idiot that did not know what he was doing.

          1. Sorry, Gary, I think you’re wrong !
            The machine was not programmed by an idiot, those guys knew exactly what they were doing … this is what they were “told” to be doing !!!
            And we see the result now !!

        2. Actually Biden became President because the Democrats behind the scene made sure Biden would win.
          It was all a cover-up. Because Biden wanted to be President!!!!
          So we now have a President with Dementia! Who miss speaks gets confused. Ridiculous!

          1. But, but, Lynne, c’mon man !!!!

            So what if he gets confused, that’s ok, the msm will never make a big deal out of it and besides, all he needs to do is sign some papers which have already been prepared by his “handlers” …

          2. Oh…everything will be just fine…after all Obama is pulling the strings….guiding and directing everything!! UGH!!

          1. Yes, Biden knows how to be a crook since he has had lots of experience to perfect his skills.☹️

      2. I agree with you Mr. Raymond M. Stinson, sir, but, Not just you, I truly should have said “We The Legal People And Legal Immigrants Of The USA Will need to start Impeaching all of those PLD’s to be Impeached also, because all of them are habitual LIARS Too

      3. It will not do much good Impeaching Biden because then Kamala Harris will become President and then if something happens with her then Nancy Pelosi is next in line.

        1. My prior comment got canceled because I was saying that we’re about to turn into a diktatorshiipp … just about there unfortunately…

        2. Well impeach all Biden, Harris, Pelosi, Schumer, , McDonald, and anyone else that’s not helping American people to not become communist

      4. Yes he needs be impeached for the scam he and hunter used the vice president name to get money by using joe name.

      5. Agreed he, Biden, should not be president. HOWEVER if he is removed look at his replacement? Like jumping from the frying pan into the fire isn’t it?

    1. Last March and April I called my Republican representative, Paul Cook about 5 times. I wrote letters to him and other Representatives about my fear of fraud in the upcoming November elelction and I heard back from NOONE!! I knew this was going to happen yet noone seemed to care.

      1. Lots of corruption on the left mostly)but also on the right !!!!
        All they care about is power control over us!

    2. Do you honestly believe The House/Senate will listen? My rep and senator are doing all they can.Florida went for President Trump.

    3. Why is being silent accepting this? I disagree, we the people played the game, now we are stuck with the outcome of a few DICISION MAKERS WHIMS. this is a total disreguard of the US consitution, and anyone not obiding by it must be removed from deciding whats best for Millions of Americans. One way or another. Its a coup, and we should be on board. Screw the feelings of the few that want to ENSLAVE the people. Open the country, COVID is a policy vehical, not a threat that its described or played to be.
      Woke up all you weirdos of the demonic party, your list of misfits is long. LBGQ. YOU BELONG IN YOUR OWN LITTLE VACUUM. stay out, this country was fine without you in it. REPENT

    4. I live in Mi. , BOTH senators are demorats and does NO GOOD to call either one FOR any reason !!!!!
      BOTH could care less and all I ever get is a “standard form letter” an NO action !!!!!!
      BOTH elected by demo machine !!!!and neither care about the people !!!!

    5. It may take years before the truth comes to light in that dark, dank swamp, but we must at least try!!!

    1. I heard 2 weeks after election at least 20 different articals,. That there were 11 million more votes than registered voters. USPS,etc. Handled pallets of mail in votes with only BIDENS name on them with same signatures. Only a criminals nal mind would make this happen. Is it true or not?

      1. agree w/ Delores

  2. If you see the gigantic errors Biden is making, you should understand why people doubt there were 80 million people stupid enough to vote for him. The only explanation is fraud.

      1. Biden?? 80 million???
        What a joke !!!
        I would say, hardly 30-40 million!!!
        Why didn’t they want an investigation?
        The left can’t handle the truth !!!

    1. Biden is the prime example of people being promoted to a level of incompetence. He is such a worthless, worthless excuse for a human being, much less the leader of the free world. China is now militarily threatening Taiwan, and telling Biden to stand down. His response, as someone owned by China, is going to be something like “Please bend over so that I can kiss your arse.” I thought that WWIII was going to start by Israel attacking Iran to stop the production of nuclear weapons, now that Biden is appeasing Iran and allowing Iran to do so. Instead of the mid-east, WWIII may start with Taiwan. Biden is such a worthless fool. The world is a nasty place. Biden cannot survive, but I hope that he does not take the rest of humanity down with him.

    1. Agree with you Raymond!!
      But he’s not the only one, the list is a mile
      long !!!!
      Even worst , they are all a bunch of liars, diktatorrss and they’re doing everything possible to destroy this country from with!!in

    1. Well, Rex, this shameless puppet did a lot of good things for himself and his family, so for almost 50 yrs he did accomplish a lot …

      Not for us, but hey, he will be doing a lot now…
      May God watch over us !!!!!

  3. this municipal corporation called the District of Columbia is governed by the Pope y instruction and it is bankrupt and most have nothing to do with it

  4. Can we have a recall election for the Presidency, House, and Senate, before those Democrat Megalomaniacs carry out their destruction!

  5. Thanks for the phone numbers! I’m from Utah, have emailed Mitt Romney , and tried to call but no answers! He certainly isn’t listening to the voters of Utah, so he has power and we don’t, until he runs again and doesn’t get elected. In the mean time he’s certainly not acting like the Republican we elected!!!!

  6. I’m thinking Stirewalt knew the election results ahead of time, that’s why he vehemently defended his Arizona call as early as it was based on results that were showing when he made the call! I’m not sure he could deny that.

  7. I hope dumb Chris Stierwalt loses some pounds while his big butt is unemployed. Fox News needs to terminate Chris Wallace!

  8. I will miss his jolly laugh, he was not all bad ,but good riddance chris, live it out in CALIF, or just call MSNBC or CNN, their looking for turncoats

  9. Fox News WAS MY FAVORITE NEWS!!!!!!! UNTIL THEY HIRED CERTAIN DEMS???????? FRAUD PARTY!!!!!!!! SINCE THEM I HAVE NOT WATCHED IT AT ALL???? ALSO, I LIKED THE FIVE @ FIVE!!!! NOW I DO NOT WATCH IT AT ALL???????? JUAN IS ABSOLUTELY DISGUSTING?????? BEFORE THE ELECTION HE ALWAYS ARGUED IN FAVOR OF BIDEN!!!!! JESSIE AND GREG TOOK HIM ON AND HAVE ALWAYS PROVED HIM WRONG??????? THE GUY DOES NOT KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT THE CONSTITUTION???? OR HISTORY??? HE NEVER FACT CHECKS ANYTHING BEFORE HE SPEWS HIS GARBAGE!!!!!!!! SICK OF HIM!!!!! GOOD BYE FOX!!!!!!!!!

  10. I would like to know who ever said that [email protected] is progressive or liberal. Anybody that knows any thing about it, knows that is a lie.

    Dems don’t know what a life is, because they got no brains. Cannot buy one cause the store ran out, put on backorder. Problem is that the stupid brainless Dems working in the brain factory went on strike. They went on strike, because they were not making enough to buy brains. When they got enough they went to the store only to find out that Biden had raised the price.

  11. Jdavis I would but my senators Stabenow and Peters they have their heads so far up Schummers butt they cant see daylight.

  12. He wasn’t the ONLY reason Fox is going down the tubes. Most of it can be attributed to Ryan and the two brothers who are scorching it. Fox isn’t worth the waste of time anymore.

  13. Is anyone getting the same feeling I am? That this is all part of what globalists & the New World Order have been aiming at for decades? Any brain-dead butt-head will do as President for this bunch, because he/she will only be a puppet for this bunch. Has anyone in America been informed of the trial going on in Italy where an Italian government official has admitted to changing votes on our so-called “secure” voting machines, & routing them to Frankfurt, Germany? We will NEVER get the truth, no matter how much we wish it!

  14. Its all about the SWAMP CREATURES, all of them . Donald Trump was upsetting their political kingdom . So they frauded him out by any means necessary. Results = MAGOO BIDEN.

  15. Glad that fat little toad is gone….Never could stand him….Hope Chris Wallace is next….Hey, If they get back to being a true conservative news outlet….maybe I’ll tune them in. Right now I’m very happy with Newsmax, Bill O’Reilly’s podcast and the Blaze. I do miss seeing , Mark Levin, Greg Gutfeld, Jesse, and Judge Jeanine. Maybe they’ll move over to Newsmax …..

    1. Don’t give up on Fox News. That’s what the dems want. They are doing there best to destroy anything and anyone that is in there way. Beware

  16. It’s time to fightjust like those dumbocrats, they burn cities and kill Cops through A paid gang. Why are they not prosecuted,because they have corrupted our legal system. every legal system is crooked. President Trump revealed all this that’s why they hated him.They were all afraid he was going to reveal all of them by name and arrest them. He was also about to break up their stealing game. It’s time to use the second amendment. We can fight or sit back and loose this great country or we can fight and win.

    1. well, to do nothing ensures getting steamrolled.
      I just don’t want to get nuked while signing up with you in a Walmart parking lot.
      It’s disgraceful the ‘new’ administration is allowed to carry on.

  17. TRUMP NETWORK …and TRUMP INSTANT MESSAGING NETWORK! … Ifn you cannot go over the fenUe? … YOu GO AROUND THE FENCE!

  18. Chris Stirewalt has always been a never Trumper.
    Often his dialogues were slanted with mis information.
    What can one expect from a circus act?
