Former Speaker of the House Paul Ryan joins board of Fox Corporation
CNN ^ | March 19, 2019 | Brian Stelter

[snip] The Ryan appointment is the most noteworthy, given his history near the top of Republican politics. Ryan and Rupert Murdoch have been friendly for many years. In 2014, he named Ryan as a presidential contender he had "particular admiration for." [/snip]

You're watching the slow motion disintegration of a once vibrant news organization. Fox touts beating CNN and MSNBC in ratings, but what they don't tell you is that they're BLEEDING viewers, losing 6% of their year-over-year audience. I read somewhere that the parent of Nutrisystem was complaining about the lack of response to ads.

Just this week alone we have Donna Brazile and Paul Ryan on board... Yay. They've got the Wallace-Vittert weekend slander tag-team and stories of Brent Baier's people shanking Jeanine Pirro.

Fox just needs to be "CNN'd." They work for our enemies.

I imagine CNN will host a ‘welcome home’ party for all faux news’ employees this weekend.

Well, that will certainly please Shep and the rest of the NeverTrumpers.

I understand hiring the little sleaze bag Ryan, but Brazil is the stupidest move yet. She violated every ethical standard possible at CNN in the debates and FNC says, hmmm, we have to get some of that corruption here!

Old man Murdoch was a smart man but his sons are dirt pile stupid.

Faux News’s Parent organization: The Walt Disney Company

Twenty-First Century Fox, Inc., doing business as 21st Century Fox, is an American multinational mass media corporation that is based in Midtown Manhattan, New York City.

It was one of the two companies formed from the 2013 spin-off of the publishing assets of News Corporation, as founded by Rupert Murdoch in 1980. Wikipedia

Parent organization: The Walt Disney Company

Headquarters: New York City, NY
Revenue: 30.4 billion USD (2018)
Number of employees: 22,400 (2018)
Subsidiaries: Fox News, 20th Century Fox,

So if Freepers love those, who control Disney/ABC/ESPN, they can just keep bitching and paying to be spit on.

Or they can cut their cable and stop watching FAUX!

I see the usual culprits on the left demanding the Judge Jeanine Pirro be sacked immediately. I wouldn’t be surprised to see this happen so Fox can curry favor with the leftists.

I think the news division has been spun off to become an independent, stand alone company.

Disney got the entertainment biz.

Thank you for the link Grampa.

Timely because it just so happens the link I was using for OAN no longer worked.

Absolutely, amazing how Faux has been stabbing President Trump in the back before he was elected, after he was elected and after he became our President!

Check my new tagline thanks to AAABEST!

Rupert is free to do want he wants but Ryan brings nothing to the table for Fox.

Yup. It's actually a toofer - Baier gets to suck-up to the DNC and the Saudis by thumping Pirro.

If Baier wants to impress the DNC, he should show them the script he wrote (in cahoots with Megyn and Wallace) to sandbag Trump at the GOP debates.

Agreed!! It’s a perfect example as to what happens when someone fails to pass founding principles to the next generation.

The fagola Shep should replace Brett Baier and really tank the ratings. Bring back Megyn Kelly and Allison Cammerotta. Hire Stephanie Rhul for FoxBusiness.

Hire back and elevate Gretchen Carlson as President of the News Division.
