Fox News Slogan Seems to Take Aim at Trump

Fox News’ new slogan seems to take aim at President Donald Trump.

The motto, ”Standing Up For What’s Right,” appears on an ad for Laura Ingraham’s show, ”The Ingraham Angle” and on the network’s prime-time chyrons and promotions, reports Business Insider.

The news outlet launched the slogan soon after Trump stepped up his feud with the network.

The president has had a contentious relationship with Fox since it called Arizona for Democratic candidate Joe Biden on Nov. 3 and, later, the presidential election for the former vice president.

Several news outlets have called the race for Biden. Trump refuses to concede, citing voter fraud. Newsmax will not announce a winner until enough states certify votes.

”@FoxNews daytime ratings have completely collapsed,” Trump tweeted on Nov. 12. ”Weekend daytime even WORSE. Very sad to watch this happen, but they forgot what made them successful, what got them there. They forgot the Golden Goose. The biggest difference between the 2016 Election and 2020 was @FoxNews.”

The president has maintained the support of several Fox News hosts including Tucker Carlson, Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham, and Jeanine Pirro.

The network has a lot of work to do to regain its trust and credibility among longtime viewers.

Melissa Francis, regularly seen on the Fox News show “Outnumbered,” has been off the air for over a month and is probably at the end of her run at the network.

Francis has not been seen on the program since Oct. 7.

Fox News has abandoned its conservative base and gone all-in on the President-elect Joe Biden train in a way not many had imagined.

And as part of that effort, the network canceled Judge Jeanine Pirro’s show last Saturday after a dispute over coverage of the 2020 presidential election.

And that is not the only part of this that is frustrating.

In an apparent change, the Rupert Murdoch-owned New York Post has also shifted to be more anti-President Trump.

Last week, Fox News host Leland Vittert got into a heated exchange with Erin Perrine, a spokeswoman for President Donald Trump’s reelection campaign.

Vittert was beyond rude to Perrine, telling her to “keep smirking and rolling your eyes” during the off-the-rails interview.

The network has decided to part ways with contributor John Solomon.

Fox News host Sandra Smith is under heavy fire after getting caught on video making faces as a guest argued that the election was over just because the media called it.

Fox anchor Neil Cavuto came under fire recently after he abruptly cut away from campaign spokeswoman Kayleigh McEnany while she was speaking about alleged voter fraud in the election.
