Report: Trump plans launch of competitor to Fox News

Fox News’ behavior on election day and in the aftermath has infuriated many of its own fans and invoked the ire of Donald Trump, and according to a new report, Trump is planning to retaliate.

Axios reported Thursday that Trump is planning to “wreck” Fox News by launching his own conservative online media channel.

Fox News shocked its Conservative fans by calling Arizona for Biden long before even liberal media outlets made the call — and with tens of thousands of ballots left to be counted.

Fox refused to recant the call in the aftermath, further frustrating fans that believe the network is no longer on Trump’s side. Trump himself has criticized Fox a number of times in the runup to the election, but the decided leftward turn during the election appears to have been the final straw.

“‘He plans to wreck Fox. No doubt about it,’ said a source with detailed knowledge of Trump’s intentions,” Axios reported. According to the source, Trump will not likely launch a cable news channel, instead, focusing on an online presence.

Axios reported that the source laid out Trump’s plan:

  • There’s been lots of speculation about Trump starting a cable channel. But getting carried on cable systems would be expensive and time-consuming.
  • Instead, Trump is considering a digital media channel that would stream online, which would be cheaper and quicker to start.
  • Trump’s digital offering would likely charge a monthly fee to MAGA fans. Many are Fox News viewers, and he’d aim to replace the network — and the $5.99-a-month Fox Nation streaming service, which has an 85% conversion rate from free trials to paid subscribers — as their top destination.

A high-quality alternative to Fox News would likely be an instant success, as Fox viewers become increasingly discontent with the direction the formerly right-wing news source has taken.

Trump has already taken to promoting alternative conservative media sources such as One America News Network and Newsmax due to Fox’s apparent determination to undermine Trump at every turn.

Tucker listens to his guests and lets you hear what they have to say. So does Mark Levin. Like them both very much but Hannity & Ingram talk too much or interrupt and cut short guests. Want to hear what guests have to say. Dana Perino always fair and wise in conversation, as is Jeanine Pirro. Appreciate Lou Dobbs & Maria Bartiromo & Brett Barr as well as Watters and Gutfeld. Miss Bill O’R.
But most of all what has turned me against Fox…..Donna Brazil! Very disappointed Fox would have arrogant Donna Brazil, a known cheater who never had to pay any consequence for her illegal antics. When she comes on, Fox is turned off! And sad to say Juan Williams has become obnoxious. Goodbye Chris Wallace & Neil Caputo. Even Martha’s guests are leaning left. Fox whatever happened to “fair and balanced”? Fox – “the frosting on the cake”……you know…..naming Biden winner in Arizona, a nasty intentional dishonest trick! Will be missing the “old & normal” Fox, but not for long.

I record anything I might be interested in watching so I can fast forward Juan, or Donna. I can not stand to listen to anything they have to say.

Other then Laura, Tucker, and Hannity I now have no interest in any other programming that Fox has and would gladly watch a more conservative news network. I guess soon they will not be the number one in cable news.

Talk radio is my favorite news/information source. Able to do other things while listening. Forget Fox–I prefer Fox business channel–Varney, MacDonald & Dobbs mainly–for TV watching. Have not seen networks or any other cable news channels in YEARS. Once/week Fox programs I find interesting are Judge Jeanine, Mark Levin & Steve Hilton. Hopefully, they will all move out of Fox & Fox Business

Have switched to Newsmax, and other conservative news. Dropped Fox from TV and radio. Tired of Democrats letting their hatred out on all of us.

I hated the traitor treatment of our impartial election. The declaration of Arizona for Biden at 73 % of the vote and no declaration of Pennsylvania at 94 % of the vote for Trump clearly showed bias. Fox also bringing Donna Brazil a liar and a cheater, clearly signals the demise of being impartial.

Fox News is a big disappointment to both my family and me and we would definitely welcome a Trump-lead news source. Absolutely!

Fox has changed for the worst the past two years. Hannity and Ingram talk too much and interrupt their guests. Chris Wallace needs to go to CNN – and take Juan Williams and Donna with him. Senior Ducey needs to go – so old and boring. Brian needs to lighten up and he would be fine. Caputo and Barr lean too far left. Bring back O’Reilly and hire Sean Spicer. Megyn Kelly too. Judge Jeanine, Mark Levin, Lou Dobbs, Maria Bartiromo, Watters and Gutfeld plus Ingraham and Hannity should stay but Martha and Barr need to be less left. Donna Brazil should never be on the show.

Easier to just join Trump’s new venture then rebuild Fox to what it used to be but in the meantime at least get rid of Chris Wallace, Juan Williams and Neil Caputo.

I’ve requested this event months ago. Very happy to see it come to fruition. Fox News still has some of my favorites, Tucker and Hannity, for sure, but I believe they will eventually make their way to the President’s new online network.

Fuk fox.
I’m gone.
Love Tucker, Laura was good most days, Sean needs a mirror. Love Maria B., Levin, Hilton.
– brazile, williams, wallace. cavuto, all wastes of skin.
roberts, eric, bret would do better somewhere else.
martha, was way more attractive before she started her left lean. sandra, never that good at anything, always had the left lean, oh that ugly left lean.
Too bad the elder Murdoch lost control of the younger, stupider sons and their stupid wives
So bye bye fox
I say again – fuk fox

I am crushed in spirit when I see the condition our country is in. We cannot continue to move in the direction we’re going and expect a good outcome. Our only hope is turning back to our God. It breaks my heart to think of the world that awaits my grandchildren if we don’t look in the mirror and make some drastic positive changes.

I had been an avid Fox News watcher since it started. Every day I recorded Fox and Friends, Tucker Carlson, The Five and Laura Ingram. Not anymore. I just realize the left leaning station in the show The Five and how the producers let Juan Williams get away with saying anything he wants. He told his co-host to “Stick It” one day and absolutely noting was done to him. He gets away with yelling at his co-hosts and just acting disrespectfully. Now I know why he’s a libtard and Fox News is run by libtards so that answers that question. I have deleted all the shows above I recorded and am watching OAN or Newsmax. Bye Bye Fox News and good ridden to Juan Willians.

Tell Martha to take her blue dress…the one she wore on election night, and join CNN news. She can take Williams , Brazile, Perrino, Baer, Wallace, and their other useful idiots. Please Keep Napolitano far away from any intelligent conversation. Fox and Friends lose me whenever he is on.
I will still watch Tucker, Hannity, Judge Jeanine, Levin, and Greg, and Waters.
Laura is too fascinated with left-wingers like big, red nosed Hahn. I turn him off whenever he is on.
Bring back O’Reilly; remember when “blue dress” Martha used to lose almost all of O”Reilly history quizzes.
She is so dumb that she now has her own show…but what of it…can you really find a smart liberal.

Dr. Mirabile, DO/DC, PhD Obviously one of the “uneducated” Trump deplorable s.

I would ABSOLUTELY follow a Conservative News Channel ! ! !

I already fired off a heated email to Fox saying basically what everyone else is saying. I love Tucker because he is honest and informative and he can’t be bought. I, too, would leave Fox forever if not for him, Hannity, Laura and Levin. I like Greg, Jesse and the ladies on the Five and Maria. If someone like DJT were to lure them all away to a newly formed conservative platform, they would mop the floor up with what the radical mob is going to do to our beloved country in the coming months and years while they are manipulating Joe. And they will be holding their breath to coronate Pres. Kamela. Fox “fair and balanced”? Right. They stabbed the President in the back along with everyone who loves this country. I am gone.
