On Tuesday, POLITICOs Keach Hagey published a story on Fox News course correction a Roger Ailes-backed move that has many conservatives up in arms. This Fox moves left theme is nothing new; last month an activist group called for the re-hiring of Glenn Beck after the network brought in Sally Kohn as a contributor.
Hagey found a contingent of people at CPAC who felt that Fox News perceived move to the center had lessened the enjoyment of their viewing experience. These former devotees have decided to turn instead to the Internet and Roku boxes to get their fill of conservative news and entertainment whether it be from Glenn Beck, The Blaze, or a host of other conservative offerings. A sort of niche backlash has swelled up against the network, with many conservatives feeling theyve been abandoned.
Ive gone from all Fox to no Fox, and replaced it with CNN, which I think right now is giving me a much fairer analysis of whats going on, John Fredericks told Hagey. I feel theyve lost that independent conservative mantra that had drove people like me to them. I used to feel that I got it straight, and I got an independent conservative view. Now, what I get is some wholly owned subsidiary of the RNC.

Now that we have Sun News in Canada, I see a stark difference.
Sun is far more conservative - for goodness sake, I watched wall to wall CPAC coverage on Sun in Canada!
Fox is still the best, but definitely moving left. Shame.
This is no surprise to anyone that has been watching in the past six months.
FOXNEWS can’t be trusted any more.
Could it have anything to do with what is happening in Great Britain and the phone eavesdropping?
Lean to the left or we will pursue charges here in the US?
Fox has twisted left for a long time. Some of us quit watching them years ago.
“FOX is populist”.
That’s a quote I’ll never forget from an unknown Freeper sometime back...
I think they’re signalling something with their stories on Media Matters.
Funny the don’t mention Beck who was actually covering the media matters attacks while he was still with FOX.
Fox had a course change when Obama was elected, except on the Glenn Beck show and Sean Hannity Show. Just because Beck was hired in 2009, does not mean the station was still the same.
Future of channel's chief in doubt after withering attack from Murdoch's son-in-law
Rupert Murdoch's son-in-law says family members are "ashamed and sickened" of the mogul's right-wing channel Fox News, in what Murdochologists said could be the opening salvo in a public battle for the soul of America's most-watched news channel.
I haven’t watched fox since Obama was elected, except for Beck. Yeah it moved left, but the reason I don’t watch is because it’s a pointless waste of time.
News isn’t reported there. It’s a bunch of random people sitting around talking about what they think.
WHO CARES WHAT ANY OF THEM THINK ABOUT ANY DAMN THING AT ALL!?
I mean I could watch fox news for the next 50 years, and it will make no difference in my life, anyone else’s life, or anything that happens in this country or world.
I mean, what difference does it makew what Bob Beckel thinks? or his brother? Or Dana P. Rino? Or Andrea Tarantula? or Kimberly Leglipfoyle? Or the morning morons? Or Bill O’Really? I don’t base my opinion on their opinions sooooo...fox = off.
Just turn off FAUX News.
I didn’t make a conscious decision—but I don’t even watch Hannity anymore. Bob Beckel is everywhere—and I can’t stand to even listen to him. Fox News used to be the only alternative to the leftist cabal—now they have joined the forces of darkness: except for Napolitano and Stossel. The Five is horrid. I don’t know what the details are—BUT ALWAYS FOLLOW THE MONEY. There’s a reason to be sure.
They went out of their way to support Obama because they didn’t want to appear racist whatsoever, though, by doing that, they didn’t allow Obama to have the appropriate vetting all candidates should be given. Now, they are bound and determine to knock off Newt, then Rick, for Romney. It is a disgrace to see this happening. I rarely turn into Fox these days. Where are the wealthy conservatives to begin their own network, I say.
At least AJ's documentaries, on economics, Middle East Chaos, adventures/travelogues, etc. are far more accurate and educational than the crap that Fox is coming out with. STILL BY FAR THE BEST BET IS CONSERVATIVE TALK SHOW HOSTS AND CONSERVATIVE WEB NEWS AGGREGATORS.
There is an alternative. I’ve been watching GBTV, which is growing and expanding at lightening speed, and get the rest of my news from the Blaze and here. It’s served me well. Best 9 bucks a month I ever spent. Especially, since they added another news hour right after Beck’s 2 hours. At least you learn something there.
Yes Fox News is a propaganada arm of the Rino elite. For me it started when I saw a shift in Ted Baxter’s show after Obama was elected or when Michelle Malkin quit guest hosting. Bill O is trying to distance himself from the person he had come to be know as between 96 and 06. Then came Hannity’s pimping of the establishment. Those two things were the first things I noticed. Now we get more Dana PeRINO on Fox News than Michelle Malkin or Pamela Gellar.
When they canned the Judge, it was the end of the end for Faux news.
