FoxNews just fired Eric Bolling.
He suffered the fate of predecessors Roger Ailes and Bill O’Reilly — both stalwart and successful conservatives by a number of metrics. Could it be a coincidence or act of fate that FoxNews is bleeding conservatives?
Have you felt that gnawing sense over the recent months that the tone and tenor of the stories and pundit views were sliding over to the Left? Have you noticed how the once fiercely conservative and devotedly patriotic Stuart Varney now increasingly snipes at some of the President’s actions or statements that he once found powerful and influential?
It is not your imagination. Your first clue was the disappearance of their “Fair and Balanced” motto which was replaced with “Most Watched, Most Trusted.” Yeah, right.
What you are actually witnessing is self-cannibalism: the process by which an entity destroys itself by killing off its own inner parts. In self-cannibalism the entity eventually eats itself to death. It’s a business risk destined to fail. The last thing the marketplace needs is another progressive propaganda mule for the institutional Left
Meet the Murdoch boys James and Lachlan, ultra liberal sons of 21st Century Fox owner Rupert Murdoch. This little alt-Left billionaire cabal is executing an intentional systematic conversion of FoxNews from the once well-known conservative news outlet into yet another cog in the wheel of the Democratic Media Complex — the Institutional Left of which both James and Lachlan Murdoch so revere. The New York Times reported in April 2017 that the brothers replaced their father’s Republican lobbying chief with a Democratic one.
Let’s take a look at how this all began. Papa Murdoch, although a liberal himself, was willing to compromise culture for the financial rewards of running a conservative news network. Once he handed over the reins to his two ultra liberal sons, they declared war on conservative news and decided they were going to transform FoxNews into something with more “corporate responsibility.” Add to that the climate change hysteria of James and his wife Kathryn who works for the Clinton Climate Initiative and openly expresses her disdain for the President on social media, and you have a recipe for Barack Obama’s version of hope and change. The Murdochs are Clinton Foundation hacks determined to turn FoxNews into a progressive propaganda machine through a covert and clever Alinsky tactic of smearing the surviving conservatives into elimination.
Getting Ailes and O’Reilly out were only the first steps in removing huge barriers and expediting this nefarious plan. Their ousters expedited the transformation. And because it works so well, they utilized the same approach in the attempt to take down Sean Hannity and Charles Payne. While Sean fought back and won a temporary reprieve and Charles is coming back, Bolling was not so lucky. And other previously noted conservatives like Varney and Jesse Watters, who of late might be spending too much time with establishment hacks like Dana Perino, “diluted” conservatives like Gregg Guttfeld, and left wing loons like Juan Williams, are beginning to show signs of moving left. Are they being pressured from the top to go along to get along? Selling out?
Nevertheless, it appears we have a pattern here. The NY Times article described the process the Murdochs are using to take down their internal conservatives, something Andrew Breitbart called destruction by innuendo:
“It doesn’t matter if O’Reilly or Ailes did or didn’t do the things they are accused of — no trial has occurred, no evidence has been released, no investigators’ conclusions shared — their real guilt is that people believe they could have.”
The Murdoch boys have a formula:
There is a rising liberal creep at Fox. It is characterized by a majority of left-wing pundits, deep state and Obama holdovers in high profile positions, a pervasive invasion by establishment narrative. What are people like Marie Harf, former state department spox who lied to our faces about the Iran deal, doing as a regular “Fox news contributor?” It is also obvious that the conservative tone and tenor among the resident conservative anchors and pundits has now been noticeably diluted by equivocation and agreement with their left-wing on air colleagues.
Note to Murdochs: The public isn’t buying it. In fact the more you attempt to make it look like you’re just cleaning up an old dirty house, the angrier people get.
Note to the public: The best way to stick it to them is to stop watching and/or cancel cable. It’s the only language they understand.
In the meantime, the vacuum is now open for real conservative news networks to spring up especially through the New Media movement.
Who is next for the Fox chopping block? Hannity again? Tucker Carlson? Lou Dobbs? Jesse Watters?
Beware gentlemen…know the playbook.
