Default Is there a strategic Coup going on at FOX News?

Are the right leaning and conservative programs waging a full out financial attack on FOX? It seems O'Reilly is taken nag over 50 million from the FOX coffers.

It's no secret the Murdoch sons are fascist LWNJs and their battle plans are the same old worn out socialist character assination based warfare.

Although I have no data dots to connect right now, I am seeing the tea leaves here in DC and they are pointing to a new network.

It seems conservatives are fully in this fight, and they are winning...

Listen to Beck's yesterday program for what is going on. Hannity will be the next to get the treatment.

If Beck was a conservative, his network would have been well positioned to be the new king of MSM...

I liked Megyn early on, but she lost her objectivity when her personal war with Trump started. It was ugly and unprofessional.

I liked O'Reilly, but never really thought much of him. He was slightly right of center, and more smoke than fire. Still, I think he had value as being the right's most recognizable "brand," and one that probably "recruited" more than any other.

I like Sean Hannity, but he's a little too much of a cheerleader for Trump. It would be a loss, but he could be replaced.

Bret Baier does very little for me. He's competent, but not very charismatic, and I don't see him ever drawing a following.

Tucker Carlson is about the only one on Fox that I'd truly miss.

We need a new generation of conservative news anchors. Cut from the Breitbart cloth and groomed on a network like Fox used to be. I doubt there are very many in journalism school, however.

baier is the ONLY one worth any salt on fox news......the rest are tired clowns. and it's strictly because he's competent and "uncharismatic" that makes him worthwhile.

it's about the news, not looks or personality. viewers who are in it for anything other than news are gasbags themselves.

I think fox is run as s smart business having nothing to do with political offiliation. If it will make them money they will do it and if not they will change it up. Oreilly gone had to do with losing sponsors nothing else.

I'm willing to bet most that work at fox are liberals. They are smart push conservative views make big money cause every network is leftard driven

This move, based on unsubstantiated accusations, proves this to be true: Fox=CNN=MSNBC=CBS=ABC=NBC=anti-American propagandists.

They can play all the games they want, I simply choose to not watch, and thus not support them.

Default The right can stop selling not that it's winnning and incontrol.

"now" not not= typo "

The right is now firmly in control and in power. It's changing it's media image to become more reaganesque.

tv news media delivery will change....news will soon become recharacterized

One of calm, direct, logic, adult and reason and removing the flame throwers. Trump will soon shut his pie hole and become more civil and reduce his personal profile and media presence.

I am not worried about Fox it was evolving to liberal long before Orielly's issues. Haven't watched in some time.

O'Reilly had the #1 cable news show for many years.Many liked the show.
Hannity is the Maddow of the Right.Unwatchable for me.

Bill leaned Right as I do.
Though,I'd DRV and would only watch segments of his show depending on my interest,I will miss his show.

No. Bill O'Reilly is a pompous @ss who couldn't keep his hands off the hired help. The two top slated shows on FOX are going to be Tucker Carlson and Hannity.

Regarding Beck, I would say his viewpoint lately is NeverTrump, with a huge side of liberal whack job appeasement.

There is already a new conservative new network. I believe it is called Conservative Review TV and it is using the new model of paid for streaming tv. Also don't forget One America.
