Facing Competition from Newsmax and OAN, Fox News Demotes Martha McCallum

They're replacing her with an "opinion" host (supposedly she's non-opinion), partly because Newsmax's Greg Kelly delivered the first Newsmax victory over Martha McCallum.

Fox News wants to deny Newsmax the 7pm slot.

The major change for Fox News is the move of "The Story With Martha MacCallum" out of its 7 p.m. Eastern time slot to make way for a new opinion show, tentatively named "Fox News Primetime," which will have a rotating group of hosts.

MacCallum's program -- which featured interviews with newsmakers and commentators -- will air at 3 p.m. Eastern. "The Story" had seen its audience level fall in recent months as Newsmax, a competing right-wing channel, had gained viewers in the hour with its host Greg Kelly.

Remember back in 2000? CBS News and other leftwing networks called Florida early for Gore -- calling it wrong, and when tens of thousands of Panhandle voters still had yet to vote?

Conservatives were rightly pissed off at a left-leaning network either intentionally, hopefully, or "mistakenly" calling a state early thereby depressing the still-to-vote Republican vote, and causing the year 2000 "hanging chad" trauma.

Fox News' editor for all of their non-news "journalism" is Bill Sammon, a neocon/neoliberal.

Bill Sammon used to write articles about how unfair it was for the leftist media to get anxious to call elections for Democrats, thereby demoralizing Republican voters.

He actually wrote a book called, At Any Cost: How Al Gore Tried to Steal an Election. (Is that book still legal? Should Sammon be deplatformed? Maybe someone should alert Sammon's corporate/media allies that he has written a Wrongthink Book.)

So Bill Sammon knows -- or used to know -- that conservatives are rightly pissed off at biased media calling elections early for the Democrats.

In the aftermath of 2000, all networks -- including the leftwing ones -- agreed to no longer call any states until the polling had stopped in those states (and in all sections of those states, for those with varying poll closing times).

So a mistake was made, and an adjustment was made.

But in 2018, what did this rabid NeverTrumper do? Or, at least, permit the "News" division to do?

Call the House vote early, before any other networks had called it, resulting in the GOP losing races in California that it would have won if Republicans hadn't been demoralized again by another early call by a biased, left-leaning network.

And make no mistake: When it comes to the "News" Division, Fox news is indeed a biased, left-leaning network.

We conservatives complained of the early call.

Fox News said: Go fuck yourselves, right-wing hobbit extremists.

You'd think they might have adjusted their election-call protocols slightly, given that they had just stuck their thumbs in the eye of their actual audience, rushing to call an election and send conservatives home without voting.

They did not.

Come 2020, the same crew acts with the same swaggering attitude that You Stupid Conservative Fucks Just Don't Matter, and again calls the Control of the House early while there is still a lot of voting on the West Coast.

Note that once again, Fox News made this call much, much earlier than any of the leftwing media outfits that it's supposedly a "fair and balanced alternative" to.

They claimed the Democrats would not only hold the House, but would actually pick up between 10 and 15 seats.

In fact the Democrats lost 12 seats.

And who knows how many more close West Coast races they would have lost if Fox News had not come riding to the Democrats' aid yet again.

And yes, they called Arizona and all the rest of them fast and hard for Biden, while delaying calls for Trump states.

But no, my hatred of Fox isn't just because the Democrats stole the presidential election and Fox News assisted with that.

It's because Fox News, the network, made millions in dollars in advertising revenue in 2000 decrying the early Florida call for Gore.

They know this is an issue.

But in two elections in a row, 2018 and 2020, they decided to say fuck you to their own audience and call still-live elections for the Democrats.

That's why I'm done with Fox.

And still, to this day, they have not issued any kind of apology for this.

They have continued doubling down. They refused to cleanly admit error in "calling" that Democrats would pick up 10-15 sears in the House. They instead stressed that they were right that Democrats would hold the House.

They have made no commitments about holding off the calls during live election.

Instead, they've preened that they were "right" -- for certain values of "right."

As fat toadlike blowhard Chris Stirewalt explained in 2018, defending their early call for Democrats: "We're just that damned good."

Go fuck yourselves, assholes.

You're not very good at all. You're slipshod, slapdash operation that only got away with being such because you were the only alternative to the leftist monopoly on "news."

No longer.

If you don't respect your audience enough to even honestly confront their complaints, rather than straw-manning them as "pissbaby Trump supporters just whining that their man lost," then your audience leaves.

They will not even discuss the actual cause for complaint, or the actual cause for the boycott and their ratings woes, because they're our enemies and your enemies don't ever want to dignify you by admitting that maybe you have something of a point, and maybe they should change their race-calling protocols to address that complaint.

I don't watch CNN because it treats me as an enemy not worthy of good-faith exchange.

And now I don't watch Fox for the exact same reason.

Good riddance to bad rubbish.

Future is narrowcasting and streaming.

However, remember, if you are not paying for your content, then someone is paying the provider to persuade you do to things or think things that might not be beneficial to you.

I hit the AOS tip jar a day or so ago because Ace provides me a hell of a lot more utils than PJ Media. Learn to pay to support people that fight for you and give you voice.

90 I was "done" with FoxNews, all TV "news" really, before I'd ever heard of AOSHQ. I was "done" with it actually while working in a job where I was dealing with it on a daily basis.

The lack of any reliable source of information in an open society was a fun experiment for a while, but it's not working out, I notice.

How goes life unplugged? notice any differences?


I unplugged about 5 years ago and have not looked back. Without daily news watching I feel better in all facets; although non stop twitter doom scrolling seems to have replaced the old bad habits.

For me, evenings without tv/corp media are much more enjoyable; more time for hobbies (reading BOOKS, cooking, games, etc) and family time.

103 Martini Farmer, I had a TV, internet and phone (landline) bundle with DirectTV. I'm out in the rurals and ATT only goes about 5.5mb/s so I got a better deal that provides 50mb/s. Next thing they did was raise my landline phone do I dropped it too. Then I went to PureTalk and my TV went up to $110/month.

124 For those asking about DirecTV earlier:

It was tough but doable. 1st phone call I was told they were updating their system and call back 2-3 hours. 2nd call I was put on hold for 30 minutes (just put phone on speaker and worked on computer). Then I was offered $50 dollar/month discount but I declined and then the cancel was put in.

I signed up for FuboTV as I get local channels, NewsMax, and I it's sports oriented and I still watch the Chiefs and Jayhawks.

Even with FuboTV, I'm saving $1800/yr. I'll use half of the money on woman/booze and the other half I'll waste.

Almost instantly after police allowed protestors into the Capitol the New York Times started a baseless narrative that this protest was organized on alt-tech sites, and in particular on Gab, without offering any proof, screenshots, usernames, or evidence to back these baseless claims.

I was there, not in Brian Williams style.

While they make money off ratings, they also make money on cable carriage fees, so if you have cable and are not watching Fox, Fox still gets a few dollars a month from your cable bill.

196 FoxNews got what it asked for. It's ratings have collapsed. And they are unlikely to recover, even when they do their "we are Biden's only critics" shtick, with Dana Perino and Bret Baier leading the parade. They will only enunciate those criticisms that are pre-approved by the Lefty UNITED FRONT, only the weak tea caviling that nudge the NARRATIVE only slightly and permit the AGENDA to march forward unimpeded. And they'll still be reduced to ad revenue from Cosentyx and MyPillow. Suckin' hind tit, by choice.

Good to see they're plowing the same field over and over again. Clearly a winning formula for the swells.

Maybe if they get a large enough panel, people won't only not have to finish a thought, they won't even have to finish a sentence.

206 142, Ace, DaveinFla specifically said he needed a break and part of it was certain folks going after him post election for not being perfect and such.

There are several types of trolls working the comments--the disruptors, the black pillers, and the nasties. One diverts useful information by burying it, the black pillers depress even hyenas, and the nasties make the lurkers shy away by treating people with disrespect. Some are using bygone nics by trolling the archives so you get some old timer verifying them. Then there are the crazies who were cast into the darkness and I think Jack attracted at least several stalkers and maybe Garrett as well.

I am as old as dirt on the internet going back to prodigy, usenet, and early blog sites and even used to be a mod back in the day for a big website. My biggest eyeopener was during the Intel-AMD flamewars around the millenia. You saw it all with trolls in those few short years.

207 They're replacing her with an "opinion" host

Just to let you know, the new host will be me. Fox wanted someone with severely conservative opinions like me to bring back their lost audience and to lead the thoughts of conservatives as we move into the post-Trump period.

We're still working out the format, but obviously there will be a lot of video of me playing with my dogs. No surprise there!

In my first week I will have as guests other severe conservatives including Steve Hayes, David French and Bill Kristol.

We'll be doing a lot of original stuff like quoting Mencken (time to begin slitting throats!) and spotting MacGuffins and building shelves.

I know I have a lot of fans here so I wanted you to be the first to know!

So I clicked off, and you know what? Mentally, I felt better. Free from being fed constant negativity and manufactured outrage, my mood and attitude improved.

I've now moved on the national news, and it feels great. I still know what goes on out there, I just don't have it delivered to me in an unfiltered, pre-packaged format.

I believe that both JackStraw and Dave in Florida were 100% correct, until the massive middle of the night vote dumps. The left was brazen in their cheating, and no one could have planned for it.
Posted by: Toni at January 11, 2021 05:03 PM (/c+mq)

I defended - in my own minor way - JackStraw for his posts. He referenced people in the know that he was very confident in, and his posts and defenses were as well thought-out as the most trusted commenters on the site. Mind you, I'm a newbie commenter here, so I don't have nearly the reserve of standing as others.

He thought that people who were, up to the time that they weren't, stand-up people. Levin, for instance, still thinks that Barr did a good job trying to bring order back into DOJ.

I was wrong. I thought that the rule of law meant something, and that even though there were a few bad apples that we knew about, that the corpus of the enforcement agencies would remember their oaths at some point.

I'd say I won't make that mistake again, but then again I was a loyal member of the GOP for all my 29 years before I pulled the plug on them. I guess I'm a sap and a mope.

Stopped watching Pox when it became apparent that Rupert's spawns were eels, then they hired Cryin' Ryan, good grief. But when I heard Pox News STP by calling AZ when ppl were still standing in line to vote, wholly guacamole! As far as live streaming, I couldn't get OAN so I went to free and clear 123 TV, not sure if they carry Newsmax also, but worth a look.

I PAID for OAN this year. A full year subscription. I would not give a dime to Fox if the choice.

Personally, I think that they did a putsch too early this time and lack any real popular support for what they are doing. Not optimistic about PDT second term, Q or any other such things on the internets but simply from history of coups, they do not end up successful in the long run and usually provoke a significant backlash against the elites that did it.

438 As I noted last thread, Biden data team said Trump needed 53% of election day votes to win PA. Trump got 62%.

Still have not seen anything approaching a substantive data presentation to quantify and specify the "mysteries" of this election, meaning how did Trump lose. By laying out the agreed upon, consenus, and/or historic patterns that were all violated. I mean aside from every single historical benchmark and bellwether (not aware of a single one that *wasn't* violated).

One guy did a quickie for WI - showing how the overall pattern was one you never see - a candidate lagging even behind the last cycle's loser, everywhere across the state, but somehow seeing unheard of gains in 2 counties, and "winning". Literally doesn't happen in real life.

I've always expected Trump's data team to do a detailed public presentation about this, to lay out how they were beating all their numbers, everywhere (which is true), and then, boom, the other side (which hardly even amounted to a campaign) "won" an historic blow-out. Just to provide the context.

I ducked even though I was nowhere near the trajectory. Another time with an Italian AF general or something who said if the def contractors were wrong about so-and-so he would be executed with a vague implication of, "but not until I hunt you all down".

459 Tangental - Mrs. Reason has now tasked me with figuring out if the Amazon Fire hardware we own (two older sticks and a 4k flat box) will become useless if she ends her Prime account.

She is livid over the deplatforming. She wasn't much into Gab over the past few years (I made an account and mostly lurk, but I'm there) and a few months ago she got tired of Twitter and created a Parler account for herself.

She'd just gotten used to Parler and started to like it, and now Amazon went and snapped the head off her new dolly. She's PISSED.

She ended her Twitter account, is on the trail of downloading everything out of her FB so she can end it too. I think she's about to make a Gab account unless Parler can get back on their feet.

It looks like the Fire stuff will still "work," but the question will be how much functionality will they really retain?

There will be injustices where the process is the punishment, doxxing, firings, jailings, etc. of ordinary people just to 'teach them a lesson' and the elites like Megs McCain are just fine with that. But, the slow erosion of mockery will begin to distill into active hatred which by and large is why the big goombahs in authoritarian countries go elsewhere for their fun or stay holed up in enclaves in their home country. They cannot walk the streets without being confronted with total hatred of them and their family.

As Stalin said, it does not matter who votes, but who counts the votes.

Dominion's machines were Windows 10 Home (not even business) and were all connected to the internet.

Now, seeing as how there was no Domain structure, they were using the SAME account name and password to work, and had remote access turned on.

Also, in the Registry, was a little entry for their software called 'weighted voting' which was ENABLED.

The only HAND recount done, switched that county from Biden winning, to Trump winning that county.

There was, IMO, many different levels of fraud in this election, all based on a visceral and loudly proclaimed hatred of Trump, but its the method of counting votes ITSELF which must be fixed, or there will never be another fair election.

Ditto for Chromecast. There are even more advanced ways to 'jailbreak' devices but generally easier and quicker to simply buy a non-proprietary device like Roku. The other is to create your own media server which is a lot more complex.

America's greatest actual threats are outlets like DHS and FBI and police state-friendly laws such as the Patriot Act. We may one day get back the levers of government. If so, there will be much to dismantle.

And you just said it all. But in a 2-party (de facto) system, where neither party is responsible or trustworthy ..... trapped is the term I've been using for a long time. Trapped.

Recall Trump was an amazing black swan, a true outsider who came in and "stole" a presidential nomination. Big office, but one race, so, feasible. Doing that enough to actually change the GOP - not technically impossible, but as unlikely as sagging all over WI and then making it up with 300% turnout in black precincts of Milwaukee - just to pick a random comparison.

533 For analytical purposes, leaving aside 100% of the electronic voting process issues, there was more than sufficient improper, illegal, unconstitutional, and dubious action in at least 5 states, maybe 6, to invalidate the "results". That's what the actual Trump lawsuits document.

534 Switch-Hitting Fox Management: "Oh, I'm sure it's all already archived.

At some point people directly or via their webmasters are going to have to dynamically sabotage Googlebots.

Like set your webserver up to run a script every time one (or a computer from a Google domain/netblock) visits your site. Maybe run a script to a page that prints, only, "Alphabet/Google is Evil" repeatedly. Or redirects it to itself. Something to start screwing over the value of their results.

Yes, you might take a hit because you site won't be traversed, but if enough people do it, Google's value will drop.

Or, conversely and at a minimum, quit using Google's scripts!

Fox News Primetime is a stupid fucking idea.

The network has been floating their ratings on their opinion (right-wing) hosts, with the liberal news team along for the ride for years. Just like WSJ did for a long time. But their recent perfidy is murdering their ratings even in that core, profitable programming like Hannity and Carlson.

Expanding it to more time slots will not stop the bleeding. Trump voters loved Carlson. If they're leaving in droves, they won't come back for some new lame-o show in an earlier slot. Not in numbers big enough to matter.

Moreover, like WSJ, their business-oriented audience doesn't care enough about right-wing politics to tune in for the editorial content that would replace their oddly conceived idea of the "straight news" evening hour.

To put it simply: That's retarded, sir.
