Rupert Murdoch had opportunity to fix things at FoxNews. The network had always been about “fair and balanced.” But he let his sons, James and Lachlan, take over. Now their liberal positioning is starting to hurt the network.
One wonders why he allowed them to take the reigns considering their political bent? Now it appears a conservative light may be on the horizon.
THEIR BIG MISTAKE
Bill O’Reilly was a huge player at FoxNews. When they fired him they took a bad path. Now that other conservatives at Fox are facing scrutiny, Fox is looking to lose considerable business.
The Murdoch scions might want to re-think their positions. One thing they could do is keep their wives out of the mix. Those liberal ladies are making things worse.
Now conservative branders and thinkers are beginning to come together. Their purpose? To create a new netwprk that focuses on truth and balanced reporting. A conservative opportunity.
With Fox playing their stupidity game, investors are seeing potential. An anonymous source from the television world is making this news public.
A well-placed source close to the proposal tells Mediaite that serious discussions are underway to create an alternative conservative cable network on the belief that the Fox News Network is moving too far to the left. The source, who is engaged in the talks, says a meeting is planned for today with two prominent high-powered television executives, some underperforming conservative networks and people who have an interest and the ability to fund a new network.
The potential aim? Putting “the old band” back together. There are certainly plenty of (out-of-work?) conservative powerhouses to pick from that could star on a new network, and perhaps even some executives from within Fox News who might be lured by the new opportunity.
“I’m working on it (the new conservative channel) hot and heavy,” the source said. “It’s live, it’s real.” The new channel could come to fruition within the next 10 to 12 months, the executive said.
I would be amazing to see faces again that stand for conservatism. A new addition to the cable news industry would be incredible. It means that mainstream media would see what truth looks like.
As for FoxNews, they have time to things right. But if they keep going this route, their viewership will drop considerably. 21st Century Fox relies heavily on FoxNews income…almost 1/4 to be exact.
What do you think about the rise of a new network dedicated to truth and facts?
