Fox is off the reservation.
Just over half of voters want President Trump impeached and removed from office, according to a Fox News Poll released Wednesday.
A new high of 51 percent wants Trump impeached and removed from office, another 4 percent want him impeached but not removed, and 40 percent oppose impeachment altogether. In July, 42 percent favored impeachment and removal, while 5 percent said impeach but don’t remove him, and 45 percent opposed impeachment.
I don’t think this is a real poll.
But even if it was – why would Fox News be promoting it?
Everyone understands that every single TV station, every single mainstream news outlet, is against Trump. Why would Fox not want to capitalize on being the only one supporting him?
Well, let me go ahead and tell you why.
Former Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin was the speaker of the House for the first two years of the Trump administration, but he believes it is his new job as a board member of Fox Corporation that will finally allow him to “do something” about President Donald Trump, according to a new report in Vanity Fair.
Ryan, who joined the Fox Corporation board in March, is now said to be one of the most important voices pushing Fox CEO Lachlan Murdoch to transition Fox News and pivot away from Trump, according to Vanity Fair.
“Paul is embarrassed about Trump and now he has the power to do something about it,” a Fox executive told Vanity Fair. Fox Corporation did not immediately respond to a phone call or emailed request for comment on the Vanity Fair piece.
Here’s the full report from Vanity Fair from last month.
This is of course what I predicted would happen when it was first announced that Paul Ryan was taking this position all the way back in March.
Trump didn’t do anything about the people on the internet – who are actually responsible for his election – when they all got censored. Now Ryan controls Fox News, and it’s going nuts basically supporting his impeachment.
Breitbart still exists, but their numbers are way down, and I expect them to experience heavy censorship before the election.
That said, Trump is probably still going to win in 2020, just because of the situation that is happening with the Democrats.
But what they’re setting up is a control grid where no Republican can ever win another election, and where no right-wing idea at all can be represented in any form of media.
