Fox News has gotten really bold over the last several weeks, as it seems the network has realized that Donald Trump is more damaging to their ratings than anything else – and they’re willing to piss off their fanbase to stay afloat.
In the network’s latest move against Trump, Fox News has decided to support CNN in its lawsuit against the president after Trump banned CNN’s Jim Acosta and stripped the journalist of his press credentials last week. In a move of solidarity, Fox News recently announced that it was filing an amicus brief on behalf of Acosta. Yesterday, Fox News President Jay Wallace announced:
Fox News supports CNN in its legal effort to regain its White House reporter’s press credential. Secret Service passes for White House journalists should never be weaponized.”
Once that was announced by Fox News media critic Howard Kurtz on Twitter, it was over for Fox News, as hoards of Trump lovers and Fox viewers came forward to trash the network’s decision, which was seen as a betrayal of Trump.
You can see some of the unhinged reactions below, signaling that Fox News’ readership is in deep trouble. One person even told Fox News, “You are dead to me.”

We’re not sure if Fox News is going to recover from this, but the network is making it clear that they are distancing themselves from Trump as time goes on.
