Fox News Channel is in the soup.
No matter what changes the network makes, it cannot reverse the tailspin.
And this former Fox News host dropped a bombshell about Tucker Carlson’s firing.
The Drudge Report broke the scoop that Fox News has planned a complete makeover of its primetime lineup.
“FOXNEWS is preparing to announce an ambitious new schedule, the DRUDGE REPORT has learned, a schedule where ever hour of primetime will change!” Drudge reported.
“TOP SOURCE TELLS DRUDGE: ‘IT’S OUR BOLDEST AND MOST FEARLESS LINE-UP EVER’…”
Drudge detailed Fox News’ new primetime shakeup which includes moving Sean Hannity into Carlson’s previous 8PM time slot, and promoting Jesse Watters and Greg Gutfeld to primetime.
But will these moves arrest the ratings slide plaguing Fox News ever since Carlson was dismissed?
Former Fox News hosts Eric Bolling and Glenn Beck aren’t so sure.
Bolling compared Fox News replacing Carlson’s timeslot with a group of hosts who don’t draw in huge ratings to ‘shifting around the deck chairs on the Titanic.’
“So now Fox is desperate. Window dressing by moving hosts around. Shuffling them around like deck chairs on the Titanic,” Bolling stated. “But it won’t work. Americans won’t buy it.”
Glenn Beck agreed and said Fox News is in a far more precarious position than many thought.
Beck explained that when Fox News lost Bill O’Reilly and Megyn Kelly in 2017, the network never missed a beat because Tucker Carlson was waiting in the wings.
Carlson connected with the audience – and in short order, became the number-one rated host in the history of cable news.
But Beck believes Fox News badly miscalculated what firing Carlson meant.
Carlson, Beck continued, built a bond with the audience that went above and beyond any loyalty to Fox News itself.
“Fox News when I left was very healthy. Fox News, when Megyn left, was healthy,” Beck added.
“When O’Reilly left, it was still healthy, but it needed a star. They found Tucker. He clicked with the audience; he worked with the audience. Now I think that’s their last straw because they watched Fox over the years and have seen, you know, you are not the Fox of Roger Ailes that used to actually care about the center of the country.”
When Fox News summarily fired Carlson without explanation it became the breaking point for millions of Fox News viewers.
And Fox News management learned virtually overnight that the network’s news brand was not the real star – it was Tucker Carlson who drew the loyalty from the viewers.
