Report: ‘Talks Underway For New Conservative Network’ As Fox Shifts Left

Mediaite is reporting that “serious discussions” are taking place to create a new conservative cable news channel as Fox News is drifting left under the Murdoch brothers.

The only problem is it sounds like they’re just recreating Fox News.

From Mediaite:

On the heels of major shakeups at the Fox News Network, an alternative conservative network is being actively discussed amongst conservative fat cats.

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. Could the new channel include stars like the ousted Bill O’Reilly, who didn’t waste much time hitting the podcast waves after he was fired amid a sexual harassment scandal? Could Tomi Lahren, the conservative mega star, who was recently sidelined at The Blaze also take on a prominent role? The exact “who” won’t be clear until the deal is more defined but the source says the pitch is that the network could immediately reach at least 85 million homes.

Sounds painfully boring. How many times can a person watch O’Reilly interview Charles Krauthammer and Bernie Goldberg? Seemingly every episode was just Krauthammer, Goldberg, then some vapid thot he was apparently banging or trying to bang.

Top notch political commentaries you’ve got there, Ma’am.

Why not bring on Alex Jones, Paul Joseph Watson, Mark Dice or Stefan Molyneux?

This news comes on the heels of a long profile in last weekend’s New York Times which paints a picture of a changing Fox News Network with Murdoch’s sons, James and Lachlan, CEO and co-chairman of parent company 21st Century Fox, at the helm. The piece struck fear into the minds of some Fox News’ hardcore conservatives with talk of the sons wanting to rid the company “of the old-guard culture on which their father built his empire” and bringing “a warmer and fuzzier workplace” that would move away from an “anti-politically correct environment.”

It’s funny because even though the network has gone so far left, their greatest warrior against political correctness is Tucker Carlson and he’s now their number one host. The Murdoch brothers probably don’t even like him, but he brings the bacon and they don’t have anyone else who is nearly as compelling.

    Tomi Lahren is far from Conservative, she’d go well in the new FNN lineup.

    During the campaign I was hoping Trump would buy Fox News and I could hear him scream, ” YOUR FIRED” to that nest of mostly liberals. We really do need a truly conservative network.

  3. lloyd Lisco says:

    Fox is Left.

  4. Cliffystones says:

    If you can get it, OANN ( One America News Network). Is already out there and makes Fox news look like MSNBC.

  5. Jimbeau says:

    Sure… why not? Add Gavin McInnes, The Judge, Coulter, and anyone else who is too ‘unleft’ for TPTB to the mix and it would be a winner. Heck, Gutfeld might even get fed up enough to bolt from fnc. Their problem would be breaking into the ‘ashcan’ mafia that controls the licensing for new tv stations. They might have to go to a $5 a month, internet channel; I’d gladly pay, and laugh at the rest of cable’s ezpensive, shitty offerings.

    ‘The only problem is it sounds like they’re just recreating Fox News.’
    ADD to that, ‘as it once was and should be!’ GO FOR IT!
    Doesn’t sound like a problem to me, why would it be? Make it BETTER!

    Only ones I watch on are Judge Jeanine and Tucker. Fox Business news has some decent shows like Lou Dobbs and Charles Paine.

    • jbrown says:

      Same here except I do like Jesse Waters as well. Waters is now in the crosshairs of the left now so I won’t be surprised to see him out next. Judge Jeanine mentioned last fall that she may not be back after the election but hasn’t mentioned it since that I’m aware of. Would love to see a truly conservative news station.
