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.

I have gone to Newmax after fox changed by hiring so many liberals and giving them more air time and then cutting Judge Pirro off and I am sue she has been fired. I do hope President Trump starts his own conservative radio show. He already has millions of listeners.

As many have aready commented, I too, have switched to Newsmax. Trump has already started his own network. He will crush his competition. Good show, Donald.

I’ve given up on Fox (except Tucker Carlson and Hannity until they get network pressure to leave). My family will support a TRUMP NETWORK….and the TRUTH! WE LOVE YOU, MR. PRESIDENT!

I agree with Pat. I only watch Tucker Carlson. Jessie Watters and Judge Jeanine Pirro. They give us the Truth and nothing but the Truth.

JKM (@guest_1073272)

Already quit watching them, with the exception of Tucker Carlson & Sean Hannity. Watch Newsmax now.

Steve Hesseltine (@guest_1073275)

I would switch with glee. Fox sold conservatives out with their behavior election night

Raymond Bonilla (@guest_1073276)

Dora J Abel (@guest_1073279)

Of Coarse I would watch it, I am currently a Fan of One American News Network because of their actions. It is shameful what they have done.

Dixie Lamas (@guest_1073280)

I have been tuning in to both OAN and Newsmax for the past 2 years. I will most definitely support a Trump network/live streaming. Stopped watching FOX a while ago. They’re pathetic.

Billy T Wyatt (@guest_1073281)

I say go for it President Trump, I’m dead sure not sold on many of Fox’s news reporters.

Yazdi Sidhwa (@guest_1073284)

Yes I will subscribe to Trumps WiFi channel.
Already stopped seeing Fox. Newsmax is great. Unfortunately, cannot see OAN on comcast.

Terri (@guest_1073285)

I have dropped daytime Fox permanently. Continue with Levin, Carlson, Gutfeld, and occasional Hannity, Ingraham and Watters. No Juan William’s or Donna Brasaile, liars to the highest degree.

Pat Leach (@guest_1073286)

WE LOVE YOU AND SUPPORT YOU, PRESIDENT TRUMP. I have given up on FOX NEWS…(except for Tucker Carlson and Sean Hannity) and I suspect they will SOON be pressured to soften their messages. I will be watching. I will support an news station that you will put forth…..BUT LET’S WIN THE ELECTION FIRST!

Sandy Simet (@guest_1073287)

I’m with Trump. Take Tucker, Hannity & The Five with you.

Beth Basinger (@guest_1073288)

I would definitely drop fox. The get worse every day. Now if Google would quit scrambling my screen when I try to read your news reports I’d be happy too.

mike gullatt (@guest_1073290)

keene (@guest_1073291)

I have dropped Fox too. I couldn’t believe my eyes when they called Arizona. Also I still like Tucker Carson, Hannity, and Ingram. Neil Cavuto is rude and he needs to be taken off but he’s part of the Democratic Party.

Pam (@guest_1073292)

Absolutely! I only have twitter to follow POTUS and now I I’m on Parler as an alternative. I follow Newsmax and One America News Network when I listen to the news. I rarely watch Fox News anymore.

George Wilson (@guest_1073295)

It’s a shame the way Fox has gone.I was a die hard fan of Fox but not now if President Trump starts up a cable channel I will sign up

Donna (@guest_1073296)

I will definitely stop watching Fox. Although I really like Tucker, Hannity, Laura, Harris, and The Five. I only wish Fox News would understand how left they have become with Juan Williams, Chris Wallace and a few others. Fox was my only alternative to the far left media channels of CNN, MSNBC, NBC, CBS, and ABC. It’s sad that now there are no cable news channels that are not liberal as those mentioned above that spew such hate and discord. I am truly sorry that Fox has decided to lean their way. It’s a real shame!

Dolores Ann Kelty (@guest_1073299)

Already have. Haven’t watched Fox News since November 3rd. Murdoch boys are a mess.

David Tyson (@guest_1073301)

I would be willing to pay a minimal fee until he could get enough advertisers to support the channel.
Also he would need to have all the news of the day.

Karen Hainline (@guest_1073304)

I was watching The Epoch Times and also Richard Basir when Fox News put up their “news”. From that time on I no longer watch Fox News or Business News. I have many other sources that I am getting my information from and they all rant on “FAKE FOX NEW”!
