Goofy, Albeit Predictable, Decision: Fox News Hires Donna “Debate-Gate” Brazile…

Obviously there are Fox viewers looking at the Fox News decision to hire Donna Brazile and shaking their heads.

It is, factually, a pretty stupid decision; and diminishes the integrity of all other Fox News contributors and analysts.

Following the 2016 primary election, Donna Brazile was exposed as leaking CNN Townhall questions in advance to her friends on the Clinton campaign.  Ms. Brazile did this twice, at two different events.  Ms. Brazile initially lied about it and tried to cover her tracks until the evidence was overwhelming. Wikileaks released the email proof.

Ms. Brazile’s integrity and credibility was shredded and even the far-left ideologues at CNN HQ were forced to fire her.  In short, she’s a liar, a proven manipulator and an unapologetic fraud.  Yes, this cloud has now transferred over the head of all Fox media voices, pundits and contributors; including Sara Carter and Dan Bongino, who will be contractually obligated to defend her or lose their paychecks.

“I’m delighted to be joining Fox News. I know I’m going to get criticized from my friends in the progressive movement for being on Fox News. My response is that, if we’ve learned anything from the 2016 election, it is that we can’t have a country where we don’t talk to those who disagree with our political views.”  ~ Donna Brazile

So, why did Fox News hire Donna Brazile?

Well, first we must remember that our reference point of Fox News (cable TV) as a conservative media outlet, and the subsequent brand image, is not based on actions by the owner or CEO Rupert Murdoch.

It was Fox President Roger Ailes who created Fox News from the ground up, and what most Americans reference as the Fox Media brand outlook was actually created by Mr. Ailes (the deceased Roger Ailes left a few years ago).

The preferred brand image of Rupert Murdoch is Sky News, and that shift has been taking place for the past few years.   Fox is morphing from the conservative brand of Roger Ailes, to the preferred globalist Sky News brand of Murdoch.  Once we accept that central shift, then the hiring of Donna Brazile makes sense.

Billionaire Rupert Murdoch and his sons are in charge of a media network they did not create and were not ideologically aligned toward when Roger Ailes left.  So the shift to a brand they can relate to, the global Sky News approach, is what we are witnessing.   It’s really not more complex than that.

Do Murdoch and Sons realize they are destroying the network.  Yes, and no.  Yes, they know they are dropping market share and viewership, but no they really don’t have any choice; and likely they don’t care.  The Murdoch clan do not know what makes a conservative product appealing to conservatives; they only know what they want in their brand…

…And their brand is what we are getting.

      I’m still waiting to hear that this is all part of an early April Fools joke. If it isn’t, Fox is seriously mistaken if they believe that by adding this fraudster to their line-up, they are going to draw progressives and liberals over to their network from CNN and MSNBC.

      There’s only one direction for Fox to go and that’s down.

      Never forget that Fox is owned by a globalist. The hiring of Donna Brazile makes sense to me because the Murdoch’s are in on taking our country down. Now is the time not to be dismayed but rather stay strong and do not let the optics get to you. Trump and his posse are on top. Lastly, Fox may seem conservative but you and I know they play both sides of the aisle. They, for the most part, are not our friends but rather a Fifth Column for the globalists. Patriots don’t stay asleep but rather wake yourselves up then you in turn wake up other people’s minds. You will be glad you did!

I’ve had it with their ‘panels’, they are just as bad as all the others except for being mildly conservative. They just tell you what THEY want you to know. OANN, TruNews, CTH, and a few others is all you need. Really don’t need cable TV at all and the plug will be pulled soon. At 7pm I watch reruns of Fraiser while I am cooking dinner! Much more enjoyable. Even Dobbs makes me nuts!

I quit watching FOX because all of the reporting was old news or just opinions from the talking heads without anything to back it up. I’m retired so I have time to search the web and read a lot. Many people don’t have that much time so I suppose there will always be a place for the MSM. Sad though. I think FOX is on a one way slide down and that’s what the left really wants….

    I am hoping that very soon (pre-election) some influential conservatives such as Rush, Hannity etc will band together to start a truly conservative network alternative. If it were able to go public, I am positive the IPO would be second only to fb, and perhaps even larger. So many conservatives want a “friendly & fair” place to showcase what we are really about. It could incorporate the best of Newsmax, OANN or other programs that are struggling with their formats and their financing.

        I took it hard, as self-employed since the beginning of my working life, this was the first time I had been hired and fired. Also, this trusted friend found himself on the other side of the divide. This 30 year veteran Marine shook with emotion then leaned in to give me a hug goodbye.

        I do not fault him for upholding the ‘company man’. He does not fault me for my flying FU. We understand one another and are grateful to one another.

    Once again greed tops everything. The true voices of honest news are quickly disappearing beneath a tidal wave of garbage from the left and this leaves people in the dark about what is truly happening. Since more than half of America voted for President Trump – where is the real conservative news to be found? I did have some hope for fairness from Fox but Hannity just won’t shut up long enough for his guests to answer his questions. And now Fox censures Judge Janine (and maybe gone for good for speaking the truth) and hires Brazille (a proven unethical liar). I think it is time for the Trump Television Network. They can start off with true news and Rosanne reruns.

    As we speak, Dicks Sporting Goods is eliminating gun sales. Sales have tumbled in the earnings report about 10 days ago. They admit what the trouble is but are pressing ahead anyway.
