    “Empire” sunk to series lows on Wednesday, one week after an already-rough midseason premiere. Those episodes marked the first two original hours of the Fox soap since star Jussie Smollett was arrested and charged with filing a false police report in Chicago. Last night, “Empire” managed a 1.1 rating/6 share among adults 18-49 and 4 million total viewers. The drama’s previous series lows came on Halloween 2018, when the show drew a 1.2 demo rating and 4.2 million overall audience members. The “Empire” midseason return a week ago tallied a 1.3 rating and 4.4 million viewers, per Nielsen, which means...

    Multiple employees say that Disney has been less than forthcoming about who will be let go and when. At Walt Disney's shareholder meeting two weeks ago, CEO Bob Iger spoke of the "long-term value" inherent in the company's pending acquisition of most of 21st Century Fox. "We will hit the ground running as soon as the deal closes," he told attendees. The flowery language, arguably befitting of such a monumental deal, was typical of the comments coming from Disney for more than a year as regulators slowly approved the partial merger. Nary a public word was spoken about layoffs, but...

    As they say… things get clearer with more data. The activity behind the curtain starts to make more sense. Thanks to an article from Newsmax we now get to see the fourth corner of the 2020 Fox News motives: NEWSMAX – The parent company of Fox News has hired a former top aide to Joe Biden as its chief lobbyist in Washington. On Tuesday the new Fox Corp., a spin-off of 21st Century Fox which just merged with Disney, became a standalone public company, controlling television assets such as Fox News and the Fox television network.

O’Brien was brought on last October as executive vice president and head of government relations for the Fox Corp....

    Gabriel Sherman reports in Vanity Fair that internal divisions are arising in Fox News’ coverage of U.S. President Donald Trump Gabriel Sherman reported in Vanity Fair Tuesday that internal divisions are arising in Fox News’ coverage of U.S. President Donald Trump. Sherman’s report came the day before 21st Century Fox sold off large assets to Disney and began trading under a new name — Fox Corp. "Donald Trump's alliance with Fox News has been one of the few constants throughout his shambolic presidency," Sherman wrote. "But in recent days, that bond has shown signs of fraying. "Reporters are telling management...

    Fox announced its board members, including former U.S. House Speaker Paul D. Ryan (R-Wis.). Other board members include Rupert Murdoch, Lachlan Murdoch, Anne Dias, Chase Carey, Roland A. Hernandez and Jacques Nasser. The new Fox is now “a standalone, publicly traded company,” the company said. Its shares are listed on the Nasdaq market; Tuesday marks the first day of trading. The 88-year-old mogul from Australia and his family decided in late 2017 to break up their entertainment empire, and Disney was Murdoch’s preferred suitor. The Disney portion of the deal is expected to be complete late Tuesday night when the...

    “I’ll still be me” The hiring of Donna Brazile by Fox News as a contributor should be taken at face value: Proof positive that the Number One Cable Network is no longer teetering toward the left but is now an active part of it. Brazile’s arrival in the aftermath of Fox News suspending Judge Jeanine Pirro all for asking questions about radical Somalian activist Ilhan Omar on her ‘Justice’ show, is not only a slap in the face to Pirro and her many followers, but a slap in the face to the network’s many conservative viewers.

    A source with intimate knowledge of the situation is claiming two Fox News hosts secretly maneuvered to get Judge Jeanine Pirro suspended over her controversial remarks about Muslim Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), with one, Bret Baier, allegedly seeking to curry favor with Democrats to reverse a decision to not allow Fox to host any of the party’s presidential primary debates by getting Fox to suspend Pirro. he original complaint came from Bret Baier’s team. Bret saw an opportunity to make Fox News acceptable enough to the left, so he could get himself a job of hosting the Democratic Debates. Bret...

    Judge Jeanine's Pirro's inquiry is 100 percent legit and she has every right to make it. Fox News, on the other hand, shows cowardice by not defending its hosts when they ask tough questions and raise sensitive issues. It's their job. Fox has refused to discuss Judge Jeanine Pirro and whether her absence is temporary or permanent. That is also a shame, as loyal viewers deserve better. When Americans are standing up to the status quo, Fox folds like an accordion to pressure from the politically correct left. Too many talented conservatives have been dismissed from Fox News because the...

    I fully admit that in my previous lives as a campaign staffer, presidential campaign manager and Democrat Party official, my own lack of civility in the heat of battle has been on full display. And it wasn’t pretty. I should have been wise enough and humble enough to have listened to my mother, Jean, who so often would tell me, the third of nine children, to shut up and allow my siblings to speak, and to listen - really listen - to what they had to say. She knew I wasn’t listening so much as I was pausing before launching...

[cut] Trump specifically named Jeanine Pirro, host of "Justice with Judge Jeanine," calling for Fox to "bring back @JudgeJeanine." Pirro's Fox News show did not air on Saturday night.

    On her Saturday evening program, Fox News host Judge Jeanine Pirro raised questions about what motivates Rep. Ilhan Omar’s anti-Semitism. It was a legitimate question given the Muslim Somali-American’s blatant anti-Semitic statements and association with Islamists. “Omar wears a hijab, which, according to the Quran 33:59, tells women to cover so they won’t get molested,” Judge Jeanine said. “Is her adherence to this Islamic doctrine indicative of her adherence to Sharia law, which in itself is antithetical to the United States Constitution?” Later in the show, Judge Jeanine asked her a similar question. But no conclusion was ever drawn. Neither...

    Breitbart reported Monday that the Fox News Channel “condemned host Jeanine Pirro’s remarks on Rep. Ilhan Omar’s (D-MN) use of a hijab and said the issue has been dealt with directly.” Sounds serious. But what Pirro actually said was something Fox should have been applauding, if it hadn’t already become just another establishment network.Pirro said: “Think about this: She’s not getting this anti-Israel sentiment doctrine from the Democrat Party. So if it’s not rooted in the party, where is she getting it from? Think about it. Omar wears a hijab, which according to the Quran 33:59, tells women to cover so they...

    Unearthed radio clips have revealed a number of sexist, misogynistic and perverted remarks by Fox News anchor Tucker Carlson. The clips compiled and published Sunday by Media Matters For America were recorded back when Carlson was a regular commentator on the shock jock radio program 'Bubba the Love Sponge' between 2006 and 2011. For about an hour each week, Carlson would call into the show and weigh in on current events, often sharing controversial opinions in vulgar terms. On several occasions the conservative commentator defended underage marriage and statutory rape while making crude comments about minors exploring their sexuality. He...
